Good evening friends and fellow BIABers...!! I think Callie is going to post this on the PG Music YouTube page in a day or two as well but invited me to post here if I wanted to! Honestly, the least I could do is be a courteous enough fellow user to say hola, howdy, hello and how ya' doing!! Although...I am rarely around..*here*.. I am always close if ya'll ever need anything. Easy to get in touch with!

So...If you have friends on the fence about BIAB, this may help. Another professional user video and perspective, layed out pretty dang simple…and a bit of my work flow here.

Thank you all for what you do in support of this great tool! Appreciate it, and you!

Cheers and infinite blessings, RG

That is a super video!

IMHO the best line was "you can not outgrow this software". That is so true and should be a slogan for PGMusic.

Rodney - that was most excellent. As a very long-time user, I don't need convincing about BIAB, but just really enjoyed hearing you play and using very tasty selections for the backing.

That was a great video. You really explained the qualities of BIAB and eloquently went through the way you personally used the software. Really enjoyable and skilled performing too. I really think so many musicians just don’t realise how great a tool BIAB is and maybe get put off by the fact that the interface looks a little cluttered and maybe also because it’s been around for a long time. However great software takes a lot of time to develop and BIAB is certainly great software. Congratulations in showing showing this so effectively

Cheers Tony, thanks for the good words brother! Yeah, I hear ya! Very few musicians are inner-directed enough when it comes to choosing gear. There is very little about BIAB on the surface that is sexy, chic or hip. It still emits an educational vibe and a bit of an archaic GUI. But those are the things that I LOVE about it. A metaphor for so many quality experiences missed due to surface judgment. The irony (to me) is that those qualities seem to be intentional with the intent to best serve the majority of users. That said, BIAB seems to maintain a dedicated and long term user base with a slow steady and growing following. When you are in it for the long term as a company, sincere and steady growth at any pace is a welcome result. Long lasting influence is best transmitted through subtle consistent integrity and that is what I experience with PG Music. cool RG

Rodney Gene,

Nice to see your presence on the forum again. The forum always feels a little smaller when you're not here. Very interesting video to watch and listen to. As a dedicated Band-in-a-Box fan it's pleasant to have an accomplished musician reinforce my positive feelings for the product.

Cheers Rob! And best back to you! Nah, it was fun work - always a pleasure to support something you believe in. But yes I would dig an intensive self study into BIAB for a few weeks stretch to see what I could learn. I have so much to do as an independent muso that I find I am a "learn as I go and only what is necessary to get the job done kind of user"...LOL. I miss out on alot of my equipment's potential.

Here's an update on the Gibson Double neck...

Realizing the Provenance of the guitar is greater than just it's value to our family because no one in our immediate family beyond my brother and myself ever knew our mother, and no one in our family beyond my brother or myself play guitar, and finally the fact the guitar was up for some maintenance, I sold the guitar to a museum late last year.

I was able to do research and interviews with older, distant family friends and relatives and secure photos and stories to provide the museum so that the provenance of the guitar and the guitar itself will now last for generations. The history of the guitar intact.

The museum's assessment, inspection and evaluation of the guitar was an amazing experience. They flew a luthier/curator in from NYC to Myrtle Beach, I picked him up and we went to a nearby music store I do a lot of business with and they provided us a room for the inspection. 3+ hours -- and not only was the gentleman involved but using his iPhone, he discussed and sent photos back to NYC where 5 others participated in the evaluation.

Interesting fact I learned from the museum's research into the guitar is that it isn't a 1959 model but was made in 1957. It is also the actual guitar used in the sales catalog that had survived and was always kept in the guitar case over the years.

The guitar has a permanent home in Chattanooga, TN at Songbirds Museum. I didn't know it at the time but they have actively been accumulating as many of the original 46 double neck guitars as possible. So it was quite a catch for them.

One of the things they do at Songbird is allow celebrity and world class musicians to do concerts at the museum using vintage guitars from their collection. So, old Betsy will likely feel the excitement of a stage again sometime in her future.

There's an interesting side note about that $250,000 guitar for sale on Reverb.com you put me on to that I'll save for another day... Suffice it to say the head curator was well aware of that guitar.

Have a good one,

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.

Fixed: Some bars for the B section of RT 2529 were dropping out.
Fixed: Some Bass and Nylon Guitar RealTracks (including 2718, 2724, 2722, 2725, 2719) have RealCharts added.
Fixed: Several Piano and Organ MIDI SuperTracks have been edited to remove spurious MIDI events (e.g. mod wheel sometimes caused 'warbling' effect).

Fixed: Sforzando might not automatically be added to the VST list, causing Hi-Q patch selection to fail.
Fixed: [Video] > Render Video(s)... menu item should launch the Make Chordsheet Video dialog if Video RealTracks export is not available.
Fixed: When choosing a compressed format for rendering files, and "One file per track" is enabled, the resulting files are .wav format instead of the compressed format.
Fixed: Dragging a single track to export MIDI causes that track to be permanently soloed.
Fixed: The About dialog said 'for Macintosh' instead of 'for Windows'.

Fixed: Audio > Edit Audio > Timeshift Audio would crash the program if the Audio Edit window was not open.
Fixed: Close button in Select chorus start/end dialog should behave like Cancel, ie user clicking on bar afterwards shouldn't do anything.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.

See this new feature in action when you jump to the "Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Fretboard" topic in our 2020 New Features video: Click here...
