What about our own Youtube channels, are those eligible when they contain our own BBox creations?

Great question Icelander! Yes, please feel free to post a link to a specific video you yourself have done using Band-in-a-Box in some way!

It's so good to hear that. To be honest I was initially concerned that this would just serve as another "let's pat ourselves on the back and get lots of praising we can use for free to promote BBox, yayh!" forum (See that 'other' recent forum you created, which has already backfired).
But with this angle added to the mix, at least this one may potentially also serve to promote our own stuff or other musicians along the way cool

What about this one - "Concept Video?
Is that too far outside the square?

In that case. These are some early backing tracks that I recorded with live vocals and guitar. (1st or 2nd take). I gradually change the backing tracks and external effects. Recently, I've been reprogramming my Nova Guitar effects. On my 'to do' list is some work on the VoiceLive 2 vocal effects.

Right, I'm going to resist the temptation of 'tooting my own horn' for at least this first tip (my YT channel is in my sig anyway) and instead point your attention to Maurizio's aptly named "Virtual Band" channel that I subscribed to: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdG-u1WGSAVUdl34PUwNdVw

And then there's this massive monster of a channel, by someone all the way from Australia (not really sure why that bit impressed me but it did), who uses BBox extensively, with some videos going up to 3 whole hours: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9GAPznIYJ6cmMWbY48NIA
Granted, to those of us on here that listen a lot to the songs & demos that come with the program, a few of the songs (mainly chord progressions) may perhaps sound somewhat 'familiar'. But seeing as this guy is giving a junk of his income from his albums to charity, I for my part am quite willing to let such minor niggles slide smile

Hi VideoTrack,

This video would be best posted on a WishList forum as it's showing what you'd like Band-in-a-Box to be, not how you or others use Band-in-a-Box currently. Very cool concepts!

Can I post cover songs I performed using backing tracks I've created with Band in a Box? I don't write a lot of original songs, but create a lot of tracks for covers I do with steel pan.

To clarify the types of posts for this forum....

*** Anything *** can be posted that is on youtube, and has some connection to Band-in-a-Box. The key word here is anything. So you don't need pre-approval.

Andrew,

Why not have a Band In A Box YouTube channel where users' BIAB videos could be accessed in one place? Like your Soundcloud channel? There are some really good vids being done by users (myself excluded) grin , and the visual aspect might help sell the program.


Regards,

Bob

I've got a couple of my own YouTube channels. It would be interesting if this could be done. You can't really repost videos to the actual channel without re-uploading the video.

You can, however, create a playlist akin to SoundCloud!

No word on if this will be done, but we do appreciate the great idea!

lambada,

Thanks for sharing your musical works. Great performance. Some unusual style choices. Really enjoyed your guitar picking on the Sky is Crying.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
