Some have pointed out the 56k MP3 conversion didn't cut it.
It's a decent tune. Here's a WAV remix. Sorry, I realized after posting I had only thought I had cut the length down to :03:10

I was going to compare it to your original...
But I guess you removed it (404 Error)...
IMHO... You don't have to upload a wave file unless thats what you want...
Though a 56k MP3 is a pretty low ,,,
A 160k or 192k MP3 should yield sufficient sound quality at a lower file size.

Yeah, I did remove it, Jim. My bad, but really did sound terrible. That instaud.io has a limit. The version on there now is 256 bit MP3 and under the limit. It is a good site to pass tracks around among friends.

Ed,
yes! Sounds clear and full! Very nice and enjoyable blues tune indeed!

Thank you for sharing!

P.S. I would stay at a minimum of 256k MP3 to retain quality.

Misha.

Def better. To be honest, in this age of FLAC et al I won't listen to less that a 320 if I have a choice.

Nicely done - really calming to the ears. Nice and peaceful, and the format of this one is nicer as others pointed out. You should be proud of this one smile

Thanks for sharing!

Much better. I always upload as good a quality wav file as I can, and let Soundcloud do the conversion. Just make sure there is no digital clipping in the wav file. Soundcloud will compress it and adjust the volume to their standards, so it's better to have the overall volume not too hot. I am usually fairly happy with the results from Soundcloud.

This version sounds much better, and more clear. I enjoyed it!

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

SC and others recommending loading a .wav for the best sound following the run through their compression algorithms. FWIW that's what we've uploaded for many years.

This is very nice and many apologies for missing it the first time around. Man, there are a LOT of songs being posted!

We love the blues so this was right in our wheelhouse!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
