Just doing a little Jerry Lee tribute using BIAB, used the Texas Blues, rocakabilly style. Corey will add some Jerry Lee licks to this when he gets around to it, and I will resubmit the song. Thanks Cliff

https://soundcloud.com/cliftondykes/rockin-with-the-killer-tonight

Well we were sittin on the couch listening to some rockin songs
the radio was giving us a taste of rock a billy tone
an Jerry lee was cooking up a little bit of rock n roll

He was making that radio jump like a fly on the wall
we were gettin into it listening to ole Jerry lee squall
his piano was bouncing every particle in our soul

Chorus
There was a whole lot a shakin and bakin going around
and great balls of fire from heaven were coming down
I can tell you Dr Jerry had us all feeling just right
Preacher dont teach it, we're rocking with the killer tonight

Instrumental

We had to get a little air and rest between a couple of songs
but only for a minute cause they played them all night long.
He had the bull by the horn and he wasn't gonna leave it alone

Chorus

Chorus

Well done Cliftond, this was wonderful! Excellent mixdown on all of this and the instruments are layered nicely. Quite enjoyed those guitar licks and the lyrics are quite fun too. Thanks for sharing!

Thank You sir, we were listening to his album last man standing done in 2006, how good he still played and sounded then, and of course we were listening to all of his classic hits to kinda get the feel here.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very cool toe tapper. Definitely a Jerry Lee vibe in this tune. Very cool vocal, guitar work and harmonies. Well done

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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
