That new Video Render Button is great, I loaded _CBGE_PD.STY put some chords in and this came out:
lol, no I helped a friend with some songs years ago just after RealTracks came out, recorded a video with just a few HD Cams, mixed it up and sent it in to CMT and it was played on air. It was made straight out the Box so to speak with _CBGE_PD.STY just regenerated the pedal parts to fit in RB. He was using Magix Studio and told me it was the best ! I said Dude forget Magix ! So just another sample of what can be done with this incredible program.
That is really professional and no wonder CMT played it. Cable TV took CMT off in the UK a while back and I had that on my TV permanently during the day till that day heard some absolutely great tunes back then
Wonderful job all the way around!! This is a really cool song. The arrangement is a perfect backdrop and your vocals sell it very well. I also would like to hear more from you. Very good stuff!! Take care. Greg
Proving once again that less is more and professional quality is the end result. People worthy of BIAB are hard to find. Einstein said we are barely beginning to understand everything around us I can say that about users of BIAB. Really great songs written using BIAB are not easy to come by beyond this forum and I am not talking about commercial backing tracks. You have tapped into something great and you understand that.
How enjoyable was that?!!! Man, really nice job. Great song. Good message. Great video and sync. And so cool to see the town square... I love those...I miss seeing them. They don't build 'em like that up here in the Pacific northwest.

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!
With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.
Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!
Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!
If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!
With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!
Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.
Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!
The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!
The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.
In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.
Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."
