Hi All :-)

With budget constraints in mind, we offer our full band at a price (5 piece) and can then whittle it down to 4 and 3 piece band.

As a three piece we would forfeit the drummer in favour of programmed drums.
I have never worked with BIAB but am fairly good on the mac.

I do not think that the full BIAB (audiophile) is necessary to produce just a drum track.
For instance, if I wanted to cover Bublé's version of "Sway", could I load in the mp3 and have Real Drums do the rest with some tweaks at the end?

And, which, (lean as possible) package would I need for this?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Pierre

Hi. All versions of BIAB have the same core program. The differences are audiophile (AIFF uncompressed for Mac) versus M4a compressed files. You should look for the various add-ons to see the genres you prefer and consider purchasing some add-on paks. PG Music Sales can probably give you some good advice on this.

You will probably want to use some form of DAW software, perhaps Garage Band, to make your final edits.

Another topic will involve what you use to load and play back your MP3 files and amplify them on the gig.

Hi Pierre,

If you only require Realdrums and not Realtracks, then you might also
want to consider PowerTracks.

This is basically a cut-down version of Realband, but it still has the ability
to generate Realdrum tracks.

It might be the cheaper option.

ROG.

And PowerTracks 2018 was just released. It's $49 new or $29 to upgrade from a previous version.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
