The tip published by PG Music on the 18th of September was how to save your BIAB file as a video. I never knew this existed!! I think I might enjoy this feature....

Here is a basic backing track in C major for Amazing Grace. You can use this track to try and pick out the melody by ear or to just play and sing along to.

I am busy with an ear training course with Musical U and I think the folks there, that don't have band-in-Box, may enjoy these videos.

Amazing Grace Practice Track in C Major (folk swing 110 bpm)

RealBand has that also now.
There's a free avi to mp4 converter here to convert the very large avi to smaller mp4 video:

Band-in-a-Box is really the most awesome tool (as if we didnt know that!)

Someone on Musical U said they wished they had this track in a Hawaiian style. So bang, presto, change the style in BIAB, make a video and upload to Youtube. In about 5 minutes flat! Btw, he then asked if that was me on the Pedal Steel wink

Band-in-a-Box Amazing Grace practice track in C (Hawaiian swing 110 bmp)

Anyway, dont get stressed, it was just a question, of course I can stay tuned to UTube and follow "amazing grace" all right...

Hi bernard. I live in South Africa so it is mid morning here smile

You can use a screen capture program as mentioned by pipeline. I also use www.bandicam.com to make videos from m the screen. You can save it to your C drive and view whenever you want.

Otherwise you can copy the settings and make your own Biab file smile

Wow, how can you not know this feature was in there, Jo, it's been included for at least 3 years now! crazy

Anyway, since this method gives you the chords right into the video, it could potentially make those "educational" clips of your cover songs a whole lot simpler to make cool

p.s. I know you were just whipping out those two demos real quick for the sake of showcasing the feature, and that you're obviously busy with other things, and I'm nothing but a big nitpicker here and yadayada, but well...both of them have the wrong chord at the end smirk

Hi

I get an audio recording on the video but just a black screen for the video itself on my PC. I've tried different codecs and different dimensions. I just used 'Show video file' not 'Upload to Youtube'. I've got two screens, a TV and a monitor and I moved BIAB to both, but still just a blank screen. When I export from BIAB to Youtube. it works fine. See below: (I was just trying to demonstrate/test lyrics)

https://youtu.be/gCVg3q56Ols

Also, the BIAB Save as Video pop up screen hides behind the BIAB main screen. (I reckon that's a bug.) I also have to import it into Youtube. The drag option won't work.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
