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.

#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!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
