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!

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

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
