The season is about to change. A neighbor has his Halloween ghost projector lamp shining. My wife is starting to think about Christmas. It's time to get a little crazy. It's time to play "What Date Will 2022 Band-in-a-Box be released?" What new program features will we see?

Please, don't make this a gripe session. Instead get wacky and have some fun!

My guesses:

Release date: Friday, November 26, 2021.

Most significant new feature: Graphic interface improved with high resolution windows that can be resized and displayed on multiple monitors of different sizes and resolutions. Window positions will be remembered between sessions.

Jim,
is this like off track betting?

I like that date you proposed +1 smile Good few weeks to polish splinters and put on varnish.


Unexpected feature: Chord Progression logical tool / AI suggester Based on existing progression. To give a different sectional variation that "would make sense" with option of suggesting a more complex or simpler resolutions...based on musical style and/or RT chosen.

Nov 29th. Cyber Tuesday.

And new Real Tracks by different people. I KEEP saying Tom Bukovac. I KNOW he'd do it. He'll do just about anything for money!!


I am using the new 1040XTRAEZ form this year. It has just 2 lines.

1. How much did you make in 2023?
2. Send it to us.

My predictions...

It will be released Monday, November 29.

It will have 49 new features (most we didn't know we needed) and 202 new RealTracks (approximately 25% jazz, 40% pop and 35% country!)

I will be disappointed with the new features (even those that work when released) but excited about the new RealTracks (so I'll prolly upgrade once again.)

If anyone wants to know the exact release date before VideoTrack has his answer next year, I'll be able to answer at Christmas.

I predict Biab 2022 will be released on Saturday 27 November, with 202 new realtracks, 50 new features and Utility tracks having full Realtrack functionality, 25 new bugs but not to worry, an update will be released on Tuesday the 30 November with a further two updates to follow in the same week.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
