Maybe even half of CCM hits use a "4 on the floor", quasi disco, beat at medium tempos. BIAB is not updating with the times for this genre. I texted w/ Kent from PG music and he stated that BIAB 2019 does not address this genre. He suggested using house styles, but these are only for higher tempos.

Listen to klove.com They have 440 radio stations in the US and are the preeminent Christian broadcaster. BIAB needs more 4 on the floor rhythms at medium tempos.

Hi Ian, can you provide some song title examples of " a "4 on the floor", quasi disco, beat at medium tempos"? I'd like to have a try creating that sound with BIAB.

I'm with Charlie on this one, Ian. I've listened to KLOVE many times but am at a loss as to what you're referring to by "4 on the floor" CCM songs. I've also searched this term on Google and visited some of the links that were provided but still can't identify which CCM songs you are referring to (even after reading Wikipedia's article on this topic)---especially considering your claim that "maybe even half of CCM hits" use this beat. But even more importantly, however, is the fact that you posted your "wish" in the RealBand Wishlist forum instead of in the Band in a Box Wishlist forum. And because you never replied to Charlie's request for some song titles, perhaps you changed your mind about your wish. If that's the case, you probably won't reply to my post either. Nevertheless, if that's not the case, I suggest that you re-post your wish in the proper forum along with some song title examples, as Charlie requested. Thanks!

I also just noticed that there is also a Styles and RealTracks Wishlist forum. So, that would be a good place to post your request as well if not instead of in the BiaB Wishlist forum.

Hi Ian,

I listened to music you've posted to both your SoundClick and SoundCloud websites. Nice selections.

I believe this post was made to the wrong section by mistake. I believe you meant to post in the section immediately below this one which is the Styles and RealTracks Wishlist section +++ HERE +++

May I suggest instead of saying "listen to K-Love" you provide links to a couple of songs played in the style you want PG Music to make more of. Contemporary Christian is a broad genre so examples help.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
