Just laid the scratch vocals for the song "Love Your Neighbor"

Used Biab to lay backing tracks . . .

Messed around with some production to see what was going to work and not work . . .

Video my wife made using the song:

Unfortunately, there is not a solo in all of BIAB that works with it :-(

Rob Killed the final vocals . . .

Hi Even,

nice song. A little long and repetitive.
Who is Rob? I liked the outro.
I can't imagine there is no BiaB solo that fits.
Enjoyed my listen.

Thanks Guenter! Blessings!

Rob is my singer and friend. He's an officer in the US Navy. He is also a Deputy Sheriff. This project is his first studio recording experience and the music that I write is letting him explore many areas that he never has as a singer. I feel blessed to have him as a singer . . . more blessed to call him a friend! :-)

Cool song!! I think it either needs to be shorter or to have a departure in the feel. "The band" sounds cool-natural feel and energy, and the vocals at the end are killer! Nice job with this! Take care. Greg

I agree about the song being a little bit too long (especially the middle part). But in general very well done!
I like the religious theming of your songs by the way.
Cool outro vocal part! The singer is taking a risk here and that's something I always very much appreciate!

Rob

Very nice. This is a good song and well worth the extra effort to do something with the middle.

Since this is still a work in progress and there is some discussion regarding the overall length of the song, I suggest the middle where you're placing the solo can be substantially shortened without harming the essence of your song. After several listens and focusing on that section, I don't see where a solo is going to add very much to the overall build of the song. You could easily shorten it to a two bar section and find a solo phrase of that length.

It may be your issue all along in finding a suitable soloist is that the song is telling you it is unnecessary.

I hope you share your final version with us here on the forum. I enjoyed my listen a lot.

Great theme! The video helped me to understand everything that you were trying to achieve (I like visuals). Good job on all the production aspects but (like my church and most churches that do a lot praise music today) I agree that your song would do better if you shorten it. Killer vocals and I hope to hear more from you guys.

PG Music News
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

Live Interview Today at 1pm PST - Aaron Short & PG Music's Tobin!

Check out Aaron Short's YouTube Channel today at 1pm PST for a LIVE interview with PG Music's Tobin!

Aaron's interview with Tobin is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative - it's a great opportunity to learn a little bit about the history of Band-in-a-Box!

We hope you can check it out! Click here for Aaron's YouTube Channel.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
