grin Digital Audio Player.

It seems that this means an MP3 player on steroids!!

Why the marketing folks make life more complicated by using strange terms I dont know.
"MP3 player with lossless file capability" may be longer, but it makes immediate sense.

Thanks John! I don't mean to hijack your thread but I am now "all over this" but can't seem to find a portable DAP on Line that has more than 128GB storage which will fill up pretty quickly I imagine smile

Do you know of any portables with 1-4 TB Drives ?

Thanks,
Stefan

2TB with a suitable card. No experience of it, so can't tell you anything definitive..... Thought I might buy it myself...... 4.4 jack? Unknown quantity.

That’s a joke about 128 GB not being enough, right? How many open mics do you play?

You load files onto these players via a USB connection to your computer. Files can be loaded onto a folder, but they can be erased, too. Folders can be added but they can also be erased.

If I played non-stop using my MP3 player (excuse me, my DAP with WAV files), I don’t think I could live long enough playing open mics 24 hours a day for the rest of my lifetime to come anywhere near running out of space, even if I didn’t delete any files.

Hmmmm...... I'm sure Banj has his reasons for wanting a high storage capacity. Regarding laptops, I for one would never trust them to be reliable, and of course, they take up space.... You could much more easily use a portable widget.
BUT, I don't know. I'm simply learning here.

My SONY digital player is about 15 years old. It has 1 GB of storage. It’s still more than fine for everything I do. Most of the new players have SD cards and ship with a 4 GB card, although you could swap that for one with more capacity. I can’t imaging using it as a player and needing more than 4. If someone is using it to record, especially if they are composing multitrack songs, then I understand.

FWIW, I've just looked at the USB pen-drive I use in my car's MP3 player to get a size example.
There are 2819 songs taking a total of 16GB. They're a 128ksps (the car's sound isn't really good enough to warrant much higher).

Yeah ... it's just a "me thing" for sure! I am definitely over the top when it comes to memory, I'm the guy who always gets the MAXIMUM available memory in any device that I buy. Plenty of reasons in my little brain-hole ... unless someone wants to know I'll spare the audience!

If you have too much memory, you don't have to use it.
If you have to little it's, um, let's settle on "it's an inconvenience".

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."
