Thanks, you're very kind. grin It's probably time to do some more live recordings as I tend to edit and change everything like sound patches etc I have over 70 songs now in my repertoire! - other changes are due to memory loss! wink

The very first tune I did using band in a box, 9 years ago.
I had a 25 year break from playing the accordion due to tendonitis and my wife decided to buy me a small midi keyboard. I soon got bored with the sounds and downloaded band in a box. I was Messing around with a melody and my wife said that it would sound lovely on the accordion. It came out of it's case and Farewell to Kintail was born. Kintail is a beautiful part of the western highlands where my Granny lived.

The tune has since been recorded by several others

It's funny in that I just uploaded a BB song to facebook. It is totally composed in BB using all real instruments. I was going to put it up for a listen by the members but I first had to convert it to a video file before I could upload it to FB. If any of you would like to critique it just Click on this spot and it'll open the file.

Don't pay attention to the flying. I was just messing with a quad copter. It was short enough and would upload to FB.

Thanks,

Hi Josie,

Go the the "I Just Heard Band-In-A-Box on Youtube" forum and scroll all the way to the bottom.

Under "Display Options", check that "Show Topics" is set to 'FROM ALL DATES'.

I've noticed that sometimes this settings seems to get reset to something different.

Hopefully this will solve the problem.

All the best,
Noel

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.

#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.

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!
