Hey guys, while the drum kits are generally very well recorded, it would be wonderful to have independent control over the various microphone inputs. Honestly, I'd be perfectly happy with control over just the kick drum and the snare, with all other drums and cymbals residing on a third track. It's really those two inputs that benefit most from special EQ, effects, and volume control.Thank you!

Have a look at UJAM Virtual Drummer https://www.ujam.com/instruments/#drummer-select
they are actual RealDrums recorded from actual playing, with a mixer for each level and will also work from GM midi allowing you to make custom fills, rolls and riffs.

Been asked for many times. RealBand might be able to do this with RealDrums if the original drums have been recorded on separate tracks.

I really don't see why we can't have one track for every drum drum / cymbal. It would be a huge improvement on the entire BIAB package.

Okay boys.
Go to the folders that have the drum *.wma files. Open one in a daw.At the end are individual drum hits etc. Used for stops and holds. Use these to make a Real Drum track. I did this for kick and snare. Then blend in with the total drum track. I only play live though.

This should already be mapped in the system and ready to use with the midi drums.

Why is it not like that now? That would be awesome to have it built-in!

Rharv and I both asked for this during the first beta testing of Real Drums.The drums had been recorded as a unit.

PG Music News
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

Live Interview Today at 1pm PST - Aaron Short & PG Music's Tobin!

Check out Aaron Short's YouTube Channel today at 1pm PST for a LIVE interview with PG Music's Tobin!

Aaron's interview with Tobin is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative - it's a great opportunity to learn a little bit about the history of Band-in-a-Box!

We hope you can check it out! Click here for Aaron's YouTube Channel.

If not, don't worry - it will be available for viewing on his channel after the live event.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
