Posted this on Youtube in 2012 and I have to thank Band in a Box for helping me get over 100 thousand views, of course a little guesswork as to what you think people might search Youtube for, helps too.

Doesn't have to be a great song either, all the tracks are midi, except for the realdrums, accordion notated in biab as well.

That's awesome! I had a question if you don't mind...do you make any money off those views at all? You don't have to answer if you don't want. I am thinking about starting a youtube channel and I am doing research. So I was curious.

Thank you for the consideration.

You can find this answer all over the internet. You can make money, it takes a whole lot of views to do so at any level that could be called real income. There are many who make tons of money, but they are the exceptions not the rule. It can be done, you have to persevere, make new content all the time, and get the word out. Understanding the algorithm is also vital, as it is how you drive people to your channel.
The real money is selling to your viewers, merchandise, memberships in your club, your music, or lessons or whatever it is you are selling. There is no shortcut. There are plenty of you tube videos that purport to tell you how to do this. There also plenty of scams that will try to sell you how to do this.
If you just want to have some fun and try, no harm of course. And, who knows you could hit the jackpot. It never ceases to amaze me what people will watch on their phones, tablets, computers etc. Good Luck!

I have seen this video before. I have no idea how I got to it then. But I have watched it again!

Thanks all for the extra views, No I don't make any money, to be honest just doing it for fun, not interested in the money side of things.

Anyways I think you have to have millions of views and thousands of followers to make any money.

There is another person on the forum who has a very good youtube channel who I feel you might address this question to Joanne Cooper, she is very helpful.

Thanks.

Thanks Ember, yes it's nice to check back now and again and see the views pass the 50k and 100k mark, a bit of a milestone for me.

What I am really impressed with in band in a box is how easy it is to notate in edit mode a simple melody line for the accordion in this case, though I have no great understand of reading or writing music.

Only for biab I wouldn't be able to put these songs on youtube with a reasonable backing, so its biab that is awesome here!

PG Music News
The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
