My songwriting partner has been approached by someone offering her an account over on Musicoin, https://musicoin.org/for-musicians

Does anyone here have an account there or have an opinion about this site?

I heard about this a while back, and it peaked my interest. I've never met anyone who uses it but I can definitely see how it'd be beneficial. I'd love to hear some feedback from any user's who have potentially used it before.

Maybe I'm a fog head this morning but from first quick look it seems a bit complicated. I think I'd stick with distribution that deals in good old real money unless somebody explains it to me better than their homepage.

I think they just threw out a large net as I know many people, even lil old me, who have been "offered" an account there. Other than that I am sort of like Schultz, "I KNOW NOTHING"!

I've signed up as I already dabble in cryptocurrencies. It's would probably be a bit of a leap if you're not familiar with blockchains and cryptocurrencies etc. I'll keep you posted if it seems of interest. A possible brave new musical world or so they'd like us to think.

Hi All

Since I am already interested and investing in crypto currencies, I am also trying out musicoin. I was invited by the guy who mixes some of my music who has already had quite a good experience there.

I have loaded a song and posted it to the user showcase forum. Here is a direct link to the song

https://musicoin.org/nav/track/0x83988a2967206002e55e36003a64658048c6ba34

I will keep you posted with the progress. It does seem a little complicated to covert musicoin to cash, you probably have to convert to bitcoin first and then have a bitcoin "wallet" that you can convert to hard currency with which you can buy some wine.I will let you know when I have managed to buy a glass of wine with my music smile

My songwriting partner went ahead and created an account for us over there and uploaded a few of our songs. So far she has made $14.00 in Musicoins over a period of four days.

So, might be a good thing?? Very interesting concept, no question about that.

That is great news Dave. I certainly think that the blockchain could be used for music distribution. Did she manage to convert that to hard currency yet?

She hasn't tried as far as I know, I think she is just going to let it ride for now.

She is up to 1630 musicoins as of this morning, which is supposed to be worth $34.57 USD, that number must be based on the current market value of a musicoin.

So, seems like there may be something there, I haven't seen any obvious pitfalls yet.

A good indicator to look for in the world of crypto-currency is if the company has a White Paper document. A White Paper is a general blueprint of what the team wants to do with the project and usually has anticipated deadlines. Its by no means a definitive indicator on how well it will do, but it shows a bit more credibility. I am intrigued to see how this coin develops in the future.

Always do your own research before making any investments.

So here's the deal, if everyone on the BIAB forum can send me their secret info, private data and logins I will send you a blockbit crypto license keyswitch to add a hot key standone zipkit for a bitcoin tranfer to:

david.egypt.kremlin@cyrptoknot

I need to be out of the country for a few years but I swear I will explain all of this when I get back.



Kidding!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Dave, can I have some of that coffee? It is coffee, right? You wouldn't have poured a Foster's Oil Can in there I'm sure, right??

Ha ha! Good catch, not sure how you guessed but it is indeed beer. That picture was taken in Cuba a few years ago.

One question please?

but when they say that I must have the rights of my song it means that I have to register it somewhere befire or it is enough I created the song and posted it somewhere as "Soundcloud" or "Pg Music forum"?

thanks for replies but I have never approached this subject.

They have an interesting business model. Apparently some folks including myself who are Apple users are not able to play songs from the site. I'm an avid music streamer and this is the first time on ANY site I've ever encountered this. And yes, I have a new iMac, with the latest OS and the most recent version of Safari. And no, it is not a flash issue. Meh.

Sergio, Copyright rules differ between countries so your question is difficult to answer. Generally speaking though a formal copyright issued by a government is easier to enforce should there be a need to go to court.

Others have said it works fine on their Apple devices. I know sometimes I'll have issues getting it started on my Android phone but all you have to do is simply press the play button on the bottom of the screen.

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
