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


Thank goodness words aren't knives.

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.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
