Hi Carlos muy buen trabajo!
I'd love to have this style to practice my piano solos. I've just discovered my future is latin jazz but nothing in my old BIAB 2008 sounds like my beloved Santana. It would help me a lot.
I'm affraid I have a lot of work to update myself because I can't play it with my old 2008 version and old realdrums and tracks. I tried but it didn't work.
I'll keep on trying because i do need it.
Thanks a milion I have discovered a new huge BIAB world.
Qué ignorante!

Hi again, I tried hard, I updated my BIAB 2008.5 to the 265 version, I downloaded from pgmusic all the realdrums and tracks that I could but yet it says I need theese files: REIGt060.ST2 and Rorg003.ST2.
Carlos, please, could you help me? I bet you could arrange some BIAB trainning here in my music school in Madrid. Now I have realized BIAB is a very important professional tool.

Hi Alberto, that refer to not found Soloist files. To be available, a Realtrack must have the Realtracks folder (RT Folder), and the ST2 (Soloist) file in the BB Folder. In your case can mean two things: you don't have that RealTrack or the corresponding RT Soloist file is not present in your BIAB root folder, for this last and assuming you own it , you should reinstall the RealTrack. Also, in order to know which RealTracks/RealDrums/Styles are installed, check 'Help/What add-ons do I Have? ' in your BiaB.

From your BIAB message:
RElGt060.ST2 is a Soloist file for: RealTrack Set #66 - Modern Nashville Pop
Rorg003.ST2 is a Soloist file for for: RealTrack Set #44 - Blues Guitar and Organ

The LatinCowboy style need the following set of instruments:

Piano - name: Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm ChaCha Ev 110 -------------------------- RealTrack Set #74 - Ballroom Latin
Bass - name: Bass, Acoustic, Rumba Ev 110 ---------------------------------------- RealTrack Set #74 - Ballroom Latin
RealDrums - name:salsaChaChaLatinJazz. ------------------------------------------ RealDrums Set #13 - Salsa Moderna
Organ - name: Organ, B3, Background Blues Roadhouse Ev 120------------------ RealTrack Set #44 - Blues Guitar and Organ
Guitar- name: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm NashvillePopClean Ev 120 (A:held)--- RealTrack Set #66 - Modern Nashville Pop (Optional)
Brass - name: 62 Brass Section, MIDI style included with BIAB (note this is the only MIDI track instrument used within style)

Alberto, since as said you purchased a important quantity or RealTracks and RealDrums I would suggest you to upgrade to newest possible BiaB version. New versions have expanded and improved the management of the RT/RD, enabling easier and even more effective control of features. Not to mention some bugs and details have been fixed.

BIAB clinics in Madrid, my wish and hopes, it could be really great. As I told you is part of my moving plans to Spain. I live in Venezuela and I must work *very hard* to achieve it.

Saludos amigo!

Carlos

Carlos

can I say what a wonderful song you have created, song writing is a gift and you most certainly have it, I love the overall vibe you created, some great guitar playing as well lets not forget.

Thanks for sending me the style file, I’m working on a CD project "white sands" which is smooth jazz, latin infulenced Im a sax player although my playing is a long way behind you guitar abilities and I can see a Santana styled track fitting really well, Ive only just looked at creating my own styles and your track has given me much inspiration.

Many thanks for your beautiful music

Adrian

Hi Josie, thanks. Not new fiddle, I have not changed anything in the song after I posted it here. Maybe the first time, you heard only the MIDI violin solo (1:51~2:23) which is a virtual synth patch performed with my MIDI guitar (the RT fiddle start immediately after at 1:52) Except for that MIDI based solo, all fiddle parts in the song are made with a RealTrack: Fiddle, Soloist Bluegrass Ev 130 #434 Fiddle, Soloist Bluegrass Ev 130 #434 . I did that with the purpose to note the differences between MIDI performance and RealTracks, since some real world instruments, like soloist strings, have subtle nuances hard to replicate with a synthesizer, even sample based. I am glad you enjoy it

Carlos

This is just amazing. Excellent from top to bottom. Guitar performance simply perfection. Mixed very, very well. What can you say- the sky is the limit with this and this track soars mighty high!

Carlos,
thanks for the link to your song file, much appreciate your sharing your knowledge. Your guitar playing is an inspiration, and your BiaB arrangement will hopefully help me get past the starting line. Thanks again.

I may have missed it Carlos, but what midi guitar are you using? I have an old Casio guitar synth that was quite a beast in it's day. I did a lot of gigging with that guitar and used the guitar/synth combo all the time, but never the midi side of it. Now, I'm thinkin..........!

Hi Dan, I use a Godin xtSA with Synth Access and built-in 13 pin connector providing direct access to all Roland GR-Series, it is a amazing guitar in every way, this guitar is constructed with MIDI in mind, RMS acoustic transducer, dense woods a la Les Paul for tons of sustain, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard assure an excelent note tracking for MIDI conversion at first start. I also use a Epiphone Joe Pass with a Roland GK3 pickup. About your MIDI guitar, maybe I guess what do you own is a Casio PG380 MIDI Synth Guitar or the MG510 , both guitars are excelent and so well constructed, the guitars themselves were produced under contract for Casio by Fuji Gen Gakki, who also built the Roland and Ibanez MIDI guitars. PG380 have a internal synth which is quick to respond, just the MIDI to external out was a bit slow for today standards, but it work. The adventage of Casio MIDI guitars is that don't need an external converter since the MIDI data is generated by a built-in electronic circuit, you only need a MIDI cable and a MIDI synth to connect it. Here is a forum thread with some insights about MIDI guitar and Band-in-a-Box: http://www.pgmusic.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=236233

In this video I use my Godin xtSA with Band-in-a-Box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLHoFoRudOM&fmt=18
Here my Epiphone Joe Pass with MIDI pickup GK3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VxCPlfV1lA
This video is Godin xtSA, not MIDI this time. The piano player is my half-sister Virginia, a gifted talented pianist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7BaLgnwpFk&feature=related&fmt=18

Carlos,
No matter how many times I watch your videos, your performance always amazes me. You are a very talented guy! And the videos are the perfect way to make your performances available for instruction or entertainment! Do you make them yourself? I must say, They are very well done. Your many talents inspire me on multiple levels. I thank you for making these videos available. I really enjoy them.

Yes, I have the PG380. Two of them in fact- my friend gave me his. Back in the day it was absolutely an amazing axe. I chose it hands down over anything else for guitar synth, at the time. Namely because it tracks very quickly, all six strings can track at the same time, and you can blend the synth with the guitar- all without extra fuss with everything built in. And midi too. All packed into a great playing guitar. I used it for years and flipped out many a keyboard player! LOL! I used string patches BIG time. I almost became a string section player exclusively because it added so much to our sound. I got really good at layering the thing for live work. Never did use the midi on it though. I didn't know the midi in it is any less than what you'd expect today. I'll have to try it out. The biggest reason why I stopped using that guitar for gigs was because the circut board in them was very fragile and as much as I babied it, it developed hair line cracks over the years and that creates problems on the synth side for tracking. And for todays standards, the sound of the patches are very dated now. I now use a variax 600 for gigs, with a podxt live. I love this thing. Although I have some great guitars to choose from in my collection, the 600 goes with me almost every time now.

I'll have a look at your vids too. Thanks man!

Dan

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
