The Dance

Big Wave Modern Surf Pop with Synth (_BIGWAVE)
Category: Rock-Pop 3

I noticed this Big Wave is not in Callie's list, but I got this from my hard drive: C:\bb\RealTracks-Demos\Xtra Styles\Rock-Pop 3 and then the Style Picker for Big Wave has 2017/06 Xtra PAK.

2737:Bass, Synth, PepSquad Ev 165
2739:Synth, Rhythm PepSquadPad Ev 165
1266:Synth Pad, PopShiningVoice Ev 120
2574:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm SurfRockBrent Ev 165
SurfRockIsland: a: Ride, Snare b: HiHat, Snare

Saved as one instrumental wav file, opened in Audacity, added vocal (awfully close to the mic), and then 2016 Stereo Room, Large Room for instrumental track, and Dave Pensado Reverb for vocal. Added drum hits from Premium Drum Bundle, by Biome Digital, a freebie because I have a Focusrite Scarlett Solo audio interface.

The Dance

Walked inside a hammer of heat
Floor shakes violent beat.
You shot me a killer glance
Twisting in your red hot dance

Taj Mahal Kathmandu?
Shangri-La Xanadu?
Hypnotized by you?

Edge along deafening noise,
Pounding drumbeats stop my poise,
Stalking you as you dance
Looks to you like it’s chance.

Taj Mahal Kathmandu?
Shangri-La Xanadu?
Bewitched by you?

Do not wait to see your stare,
Sneak around stalk your chair
Faces up, rock hard band
You don’t feel the touch of my hand.

Taj Mahal Kathmandu?
Shangri-La Xanadu?
Maybe I’m stalked by you?

Spin around to my eye
Heart beating a rhythmic cry
On the floor poetic moves
Follow all your sexy grooves.

Taj Mahal Kathmandu?
Shangri-La Xanadu?
Don’t give a damn I’m touching you

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!


#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".


Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
