Thanks, you're very kind. grin It's probably time to do some more live recordings as I tend to edit and change everything like sound patches etc I have over 70 songs now in my repertoire! - other changes are due to memory loss! wink

The very first tune I did using band in a box, 9 years ago.
I had a 25 year break from playing the accordion due to tendonitis and my wife decided to buy me a small midi keyboard. I soon got bored with the sounds and downloaded band in a box. I was Messing around with a melody and my wife said that it would sound lovely on the accordion. It came out of it's case and Farewell to Kintail was born. Kintail is a beautiful part of the western highlands where my Granny lived.

The tune has since been recorded by several others

It's funny in that I just uploaded a BB song to facebook. It is totally composed in BB using all real instruments. I was going to put it up for a listen by the members but I first had to convert it to a video file before I could upload it to FB. If any of you would like to critique it just Click on this spot and it'll open the file.

Don't pay attention to the flying. I was just messing with a quad copter. It was short enough and would upload to FB.

Thanks,

Hi Josie,

Go the the "I Just Heard Band-In-A-Box on Youtube" forum and scroll all the way to the bottom.

Under "Display Options", check that "Show Topics" is set to 'FROM ALL DATES'.

I've noticed that sometimes this settings seems to get reset to something different.

Hopefully this will solve the problem.

All the best,
Noel

The top twenty nine songs were recorded using BIAb as the writing tool &/or for at least one instrument...

Looks like there hasn't been a post to this thread for a while so I thought I'd revive it with a recent post from my Lot2Learn Jazz Instructional Channel on YouTube.

I used BIAB to create the backing track and then recorded a Rhodes piano solo over it. I then used a screen capture program to capture the notation of my solo as displayed in BIAB to superimpose over a video of my playing. The "Split-Hand" feature in BIAB is extremely useful for this and it helps my viewers visualize the notes I am playing and hopefully helps them in their learning.

Enjoy! And feel free to ask me any questions!

That's a nice tune, well-played!

I found your main website, but had to do that manually. I couldn't find a link to it from your sales page.

I noticed that your main site is HTTP only. There are a number of web hosts that provide HTTPS certificates for free now. Getting one used to be expensive and a pain in the butt.

Ok, here's one that came to mind straight away - You genuinely use an actual Rhodes? I mean, that sound now days is included on just about every keyboard in existence, but the instrument itself is getting quite rare, hence I wondered.

The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

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!"

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."
