A cracking all round track. Slight latin feel to the rhythm which gives it a real kick !

Will,

This is a great listen. EXCELLENT use of BIAB!

I always appreciate when someone uses a RealTrack or RealDrums that we haven't heard before and brings to our attention. Those RealDrums are very cool! (I hadn't heard them before - so thanks for that!).

All the instruments sound good. Excellent mix.

Cool track.

Will,
Nice flamenco dance tune.
"minor chords can be used in a happy context" - liked that smile
Pretty complex arrangement for this genre. Mixed very nicely. Good job!

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, Floyd!

Yes, I have a lot of fun going through older RealTracks... there are a lot of gems hidden within BiaB.

Thanks a lot for listening!

Hi Misha,

Flamenco? Well, maybe we can call it Flamenco-disco? smile

I really appreciate your kind comments! Thanks for listening.

Very uP.
The piano dominated from the right on my set up.
Reading my way down the page as I listened I'd have loved the piano part to be Flamenco guitar just for the fun of it but it's perfectly fine as is - similarly a clean solo would've served my fruit platter but your choices are excellent and I think you achieved your end.

Great composition and choice of RT's and the RD. Gotta check out those drums for future ideas.

Minor key and happy feel = mission accomplished!

The mix sounds excellent on the monitors.

Kudos!!!

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

A great rhythm section you have going on here! Very nice guitar work also. An interesting selection of RTs and RD that were mixed to perfection.

Great job on this!

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.
