Just a short note to remind everyone there has been a Band-in-a-Box UserTracks group since UserTracks were offered as a feature with the release of 2014 Band-in-a-Box.

You do not have to have a Yahoo email address to join. The group is independent of PG Music.

+++ UserTracks Group +++

Did not know of this one, me thinks, so I clicked that link and got:

Oops!
Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content.


And nothing else worked, couldn't join, browse or anything smirk

Your security setting in you browser protected you from a "pop up ad" which wants you to join and download some stuff. Try a different browser and I suspect you will have the joy of clicking on the popup to get to the Yahoo site.

Eddie,

You do have to request to join the group. This action was taken to prevent the group from being flooded with SPAM.

I just tried the link again and it worked fine for me. However, +++ HERE +++ is a fresh link, just in case.

I really do hope you and all users interested in UserTracks will join and start discussions. I started the group so users will have an independent arena to discuss UserTracks. Unfortunately to date there have been numerous users join but very limited discussions.

Fair enuff, thanks for the info and the new link. I'll give it another go, then.

Looking for more easy ways to get more free stuff, no doubt. I'm not in the least bit surprised smirk

p.s. Upon trying your "fresh link" I've just discovered you not only need to "request" joining, it requires you to register to yahoo in the process.
I'm not too keen on obligatory registrations in general, and if the place is as poorly used as you suggest, the incentive is even less.

But well, at least now we all know of the option a bit better (and that fresh link works), so I guess that's still something.

All Yahoo groups require you to register with Yahoo. Just set up a throw-away account, if necessary. But that same account can be used for membership in multiple groups, and when you go to Yahoo Groups logged into that account, all the groups to which you belong will display.

It's been that way for as far back as I can remember (20 years or so).

+++ MIDI KAR or MIDI Music With Style! +++

+++ MIDI KAR (Restricted Group) +++

Thanks Eddie. I thought so too.

It's been awhile since all the group links were posted at the same time in one post, but it has been done before so I wasn't the first to think of it.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."

Convenient Ways to Listen to Band-in-a-Box® Songs Created by Program Users!

The User Showcase Forum is an excellent place to share your Band-in-a-Box® songs and listen to songs other program users are creating!

There are other places you can listen to these songs too! Visit our User Showcase page to sort by genre, artist (forum name), song title, and date - each listing will direct you to the forum post for that song.

If you'd rather listen to these songs in one place, head to our Band-in-a-Box® Radio, where you'll have the option to select the genre playlist for your listening pleasure. This page has SoundCloud built in, so it won't redirect you. We've also added the link to the Artists SoundCloud page here, and a link to their forum post.
