Hi to all!
I am a old Band in a Box user, from the Atari only midi times. After upgrade to 2011 version I am everyday more happy with this marvellous tool for music creation. Thanks PG music!!!
I want to share in this great forum the first recording I made using realtracks. I create one chord progression, play & rec. Is a improvisation, only one take, with mistakes, but for me is a good demo on how Band in a box help us to quickly capture an idea for a song.
Electric Guitar, realtracks and some efx added on Cubase.
I hope you like (and sorry for my english)

I totally agree with others - a big +1.

I do like your style of play - it reminds me of Earl Klugh my favourite jazz guitar player.

Well done - Ian

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

I take it from the other comments that you are playing the guitar... is that correct? If so, nice job! Your tone and style merge perfectly with the backing tracks you put together

My only observation (personal preference actually) is that I'd have liked to hear the guitar drop out briefly while another instrument or two filled in. No matter how good an artist plays his instrument, ear fatigue starts to set in after about two verses.

Hi Pat, perhaps is not clear in my post. The song is not a finished song, is only a not edited long solo over the chords changes, searching for melodics ideas for the song. For finish I will add (I suppose) a B part and some arrangemment for add other colors and avoid fatigue.

I do not agree in the limit of only two choirs of solo.
One of the influences of jazz is freedom to do long solos that allow the development of the creativity of the musician. Of course fatigue depends on the quality or the inspiration of the soloist.
I never get bored with long solos from Pat Metheny, Larry Carlton, Bil Frisell, John Coltrane and many others, ... off course they are geniuses.

Thanks for your interest

Rafa, you can play all night as far as I'm concerned, loved it. You would get finger fatigue before I get ear fatigue.
I like the way you use BiaB to underline your playing, realy smooth.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
