Earlier this year we launched our Band-in-a-Box Radio SoundCloud page, which is packed full of songs that have been shared on our User Showcase Forum.

With the SoundCloud iTunes & Google Play apps, you can play the Band-in-a-Box Radio songs wherever you go!

We've made listening even easier by splitting up the songs by genre: Jazz, Rock & Pop, and Country & Folk. We've also added playlists for Recent Songs and Featured Songs.

If you've been submitting songs to our User Showcase Forum, but don't have a SoundCloud account yet, please sign up for one and use it to share your songs in the future - that way we can add them to our Band-in-a-Box Radio playlist!

What about playing any of this via my desktop iTunes on my home computer? I still haven't found the way to do that. I tried using the "Playlist" saving feature on SC, which gave me an .m3u file but my iTunes had no idea what to do with it confused

Hi Icelander,

If you're on your home computer, why not just run it from the browser?

I did a quick search in YouTube for "How to get music from SoundCloud onto iTunes" and there are a few tutorials there that could help.

I have to be honest, I'm not overly familiar with the iTunes App for SoundCloud, but did look at the detailed description for it (here: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/soundcloud/id336353151?mt=8). Are you wanting to use SoundCloud offline? According to the App details, it's possible with a SoundCloud Go account: https://soundcloud.com/go

But, since the Go option isn't available in Canada yet, I was unable to test it.

Something like that, yes, or just to have it running in the background on something low CPU while I'm doing something else on the computer etc.

Same issue with Iceland smirk

Thanks for the info and the other reading material which I'll be looking closer at and see if it gets me somewhere further.

Interestingly, I did find a way to save the track list as an .m3u, like I mentioned above, and I've discovered that while iTunes can't cope with it, other media players like my Quicktime Player can (and same goes for the VLC media player). So I think I'll just stick with those until iTunes "Radio" makes a way to include SC (if that ever happens).

I found the following on page 369 of my BB 2016 manual:
"SoundCloud
When you upload an audio file to SoundCloud, a copy of the will be saved in this folder."

A copy of the what? Where can I find it?

regards,
Pietro

If that is an accurate quote from the manual, then obviously there's a missing word there, good catch. It should say "...a copy of the audio file..." (although the grammar geek in me would prefer it be simply "a copy of it").
And the folder in question is called SoundCloud, found within your Band-in-a-Box folder.

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
