It's been about 3+years away from biab and need to relearn some stuff like user tracks.
For those who have heard the Chapman stick being played, it's quite an amazing instrument.Has anyone tried to make a user track?
The next thing, is it possible to take an audio recordings, such as instrumental songs(Chapman Stick) and derive enough chord info to create a user track of any quality?
My last biab version is 2017, is there any changes in user tracks in 2019?
Thanks Wyndham

I could make one up but what do you want it to play ?
Just remove the .mp4 extension, you may need to "show file extensions" in Explorer.

Wyndham,

Download the file to your computer desktop screen. Once the file is downloaded there's two things you need to do, rename the file and decompress the file. The steps are below.

Rename the file:

Click on the file one time. The file icon and name will be highlighted but did not open.

Press F2. That is a shortcut to the rename file command. A window opens around the filename and the filename is highlighted.

Use the right arrow key to remove the filename highlight and move the cursor to the right side of the 4 in the mp4 part of the filename.

Press the backspace key four (4) times so it deletes the "4", "p", "m" and "." from the filename.

Press "Enter". The filename should now be "Chapman_Stick_SFZ.zip".

Here's how you decompress the file.

Click on the file 1 time to highlight the file.

Right click on the file to open a submenu window.

Select the "Extract All ..." command.

Press the "Extract" button.

The decompressed UserTrack folder will be created on your desktop.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
