Have you ever been working on a non-music project and thought to yourself, "This would be better with music."? I mean, I'm sure you have - we're all lovers of music here!

But with the legal issues that can arise when sharing a video that includes a song (for instance), it can be hard to find the "right" song!

That's where Band-in-a-Box® comes in!

You could use the SoundTrack feature in Band-in-a-Box® to 'produce' the accompaniment, choosing your genre, length of time, and fade-in/fade-out options. To use the SoundTrack feature, choose the Melody | Generate Soundtrack menu item. More information can be found here.
*Windows only

Know the chord progression of the song you'd like to use? Enter it into the Chord Sheet, and choose a style using the StylePicker "Song Titles Browser" feature (search the name of that song, and the program will update the Style lists to show the Styles that fit the elements of that song).

Don't know the chord progression for that song? Use the Audio Chord Wizard to analyze that song, send the chords to Band-in-a-Box, then use the "Song Titles Browser" feature in the StylePicker window!

For me, I'll definitely be applying this to shared pictures of my Dogs - that's something practically all my family and friends are saturated with. I'm going to refrain from posting my dog pictures here (it's a slippery slope...), however - my next "picture share" among my circle will definitely be a slideshow accompanied with a little tune created in Band-in-a-Box (already working on something with a "Doggy in the Window" chord progression)!

What projects, events, or tasks have you improved by adding your Band-in-a-Box® songs to?

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
