It would be cool if you could create a "Style Machine Gun". This tool would allow BAIB users to load (i.e. add) however many styles they wish to audition. The user chooses the styles they wish to audition and then each of the styles would be played consecutively being replaced after X bars or X choruses. For example I select 15 styles to audition with my BAIB song and I would set the utility to change styles every 8 bars. This is a quick way to get a feel for a number of styles. If this is not clear than you can call me or email me for clarification.

Peter, your idea is worthy of consideration. +1

Please also consider to edit your post and remove your direct contact details. Instead, suggest a P.M. method to contact you.

If you want to know who's looking that you don't know about, go to Users > Who's Online and look for Search Spiders. Currently there are 402 of these spiders online, each reading you telephone number. Not great, unless you want lots of endless unsolicited calls for solar panels, and, and, and ...

Just trying to help smile

+1 for your idea.

A BIG+1 for VideoTrack's suggestion. Like Niki says "just do it".

PG Music locks out archive.org via some robot.txt, yet allows commercial spiders and crawlers?

I'm not sure what might be locked out, but the Spiders have always been there.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

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?

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!
