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 mad
heard some absolutely great tunes back then

enjoyed that a lot

Hi there SR.

Well, that's quite outstanding.

Even judged by the high standard of tracks on here these days, that still stands out as one of the very best.

Everything about that song/video screams out professional.

Yeah, you definitely need to post some more of this stuff.

ROG.

Great! from start to finish! I envy you guys that can produce a video, for there is so much more if you can see the results. Your production is very professional and I hope to see more.

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.

Thank You,

Keep Writing...

Yes, awesome track. We don't have a list of them, though that's a good idea. There are lots in the User Showcase, and you can access them from the PG Radio stations or The User Showcase forum.

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.

Thanks!

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."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
