I was thinking just that, or the face to the voice, since Toby clearly is the guy who narrates a lot of PG's videos cool

Incidentally, does anyone catch the website the interviewer is plugging there? It appears that his team reviews BBox on a regular basis, so it would be interesting to check out what they got.

I remember in one of the NAMM videos from an earlier year Tobin was narrating the product demonstration. He is patient and quick with a response.

Next thing is , how about more midi super tracks with solo-accompaniement for singers. We are a bunch of would be singers who love to sing vintage songs along with the melody and we have tried some of your midisupertracks.. solo-accompaniement, and we find it dresses up the melody real pro style. We want more, much more in all styles , particuly vintage years 20s- to 60s. Using BBIB we do covers for fun. Also we would like more tracks for back-vocals. A quicker ,easier, simpler entry for note based lyrics. We use vintage melodies .
We are not musicians but we have come to BBIB to learn to sing on cue, all of the songs of our younger years.. and it is a dream come through. Granted BBIB is overwhelming for non musicians but we are learning... great hobby and great for the brain.
One last request, in your manuals , why not adopt the writing style of the ''for dummies'' series. It tells the why of things along with the how. It would open BBIB to much more people.. non-musicians.. just singers like us.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:
