Dear Experts,

I have taken a look at the User Track Templates in the zip files mentioned but have no idea what they mean or what they are used for. The "10 minute" version is like 33 bars with maybe five chords created in each key.

What do you do with these?

The "30 minute version" is like 4 chords....Huh?

Is there a user manual?

I know I am being stupid so don't laugh at me, but I don't know how this works. I have created my own user tracks by building a long chord template and playing along and that worked, fine, but I have no idea what these templates are for or what 10 and 30 minutes mean. Are you supposed to stitch them together?

Again please don't laugh, but I am feeling dense and confused here.

How good do you want to make them ?
The more material recorded means more variety from bar-to-bar when the UserTrack is used.

Hey Pipeline,

Thanks. I saw that, and am still confused. The 30 minute pop template contains 33 bars and about 5 chords. If I started recording, I would be done in about 2 minutes. How does that equal 30 minutes?

The 30 minute pop template contains 27 SGU's (21 in the 100min)
Don't just record 1 of the 30min templates, record them all then place them in the user track folder along with the wavs.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
