Hi
I am a newbie at this and don't know what I am doing.
I have a question. How many songs can I submit?

I am in the flood zone in the Baton Rouge, La. area. As I drove down street after street and saw how home after home had been destroyed I remembered a song I had written and all these homes were the pride and joy of families. Now all of the hand picked items that made this the perfect home sat on side of the road as trash.

I guest when I realized this it really touched my heart.
I went home reworked my song, added the xtra track and submitted it. I hope it will help us appreciate how nice it is to have a home to share with family and friends.

You've mentioned having the EverythingPAK and the 49-PAK purchased earlier this year, but did you also purchase the just-released Xtra Styles? The confusion could be that we are stating they use the RealTracks in the 2016 UltraPlusPAK, EverythingPAK, or Audiophile Edition, and 49-PAK - but the Xtra Styles are still an additional purchase: http://www.pgmusic.com/xtrastyles.php
(on sale until September 30th)

Hi William,

The rules for this contest do not state that there is only 1 submission per person, so feel free to submit songs for each genre/category if you'd like!

Callie: Thanks for setting the record straight. It seems that I shot off on a tangent. I interpreted VB's posts as saying that he had the XtraPAK.

VB: Apologies for leading your astray. The XtraPAK was only released a month or so ago and is not part of your Christmas purchase.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Callie:)

Yes the wording is confusing! That's what I started to suspect but was not sure. I will purchase the Xtra styles. I thought I was losing my mind:) LOL

Cheers!

Islansoul - Since the Xtra Styles will trigger the RealTracks & RealDrums that you already have installed, there's no need to offer a special uncompressed version. If you have the Audiophile, it will trigger the uncompressed files for you.

Thanks,
Callie

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
