Hi everyone.

Now, I may have dreamt this, but I thought there was a "BIAB Hat giveaway" fun competition, where you had to make a short video showing how you use BIAB and your favourite DAW but it seems to have disappeared.

I made one anyway so thought I'd share it, and it's posted here: BIAB & FL Studio.

If anyone can remember the eMail adress of the "hat" compo, could you let me know, ta.

Cheers for now.
Mike.

Hi Mike,
This will be done, just not now. We will post about it in a few weeks. So we removed the post.

Hi Peter.

Thanks for the update, I'll watch out for that (and probably tinker with the video a little more).

Cheers.
Mike.

I thought I saw where it said "short" .... about 30+ seconds or so.... did I misunderstand?

11 minutes... that's longer than most of the testimonials.

I clicked in on a few places... (don't have the patience to sit and watch 11 minutes).... and I will say, it looks extremely well done.

Especially like how you got the guitar solo to "sit" in the mix. Nicely done.

Not sure there is actually a lot to demo for a topic of "biab to Daw". In fact, a simple drag and drop of the audio and midi tracks is really all that needs to be illustrated.

Now when and if they create a true VST plugin of BIAB, then that will be something to see. grin

Very interesting for someone like me who doesn't use a DAW yet. Nice guitar playing. I would have liked to have seen more... vocals etc. lol

Very interesting. I do have one question, though: Is there a reason you didn't adjust the tempo in FL Studio to match the imported tracks?

Hi. Yes, it is good practice to match the tempo before importing the tracks and something I would do if I wanted to change any pitch or timing or add a time based plugin such as jamstix etc.

If you load wav / mp3 tracks into FL studio, it doesn't, attempt to adjust the tracks tempo to its default tempo setting. Any subsequent tempo change in FL would readjust the track tempo though, so, another good reason for matching them at the outset.

I really should get into the habit of doing that, to avoid any unintended consequences at later stages.

In this case, as the drum beat was imported as one of the tracks, I did not need the metronome to play the lead guitar against and this would have been the only thing that was tempo related.
Great question.

Thanks for stopping by to have a listen (and to everyone else who did).

Cheers.
Mike.

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)
Upgrade from Version 2017 or earlier or crossgrade: [color:#FF0000]$169[/color] (reg: $299)

Note: The difference between the UltraPAK and the UltraPAK+ is that the MIDI Songs & Lessons PAK is included in the UltraPAK+ package.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
