Its gonna have to be a whole lot better than the Arturia B3 that I use now for me to buy it.

But it would be fantastic if they produced some grooves for a B3.

Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

At the risk of going off topic … I’m quite pleased with BiaB’s organ MIDI Supertracks and Logic Pro X’s Vintage B3 sound. Plus it’s cool to watch the Leslie speaker rotating.😜

PS Logic is a top tier $199 for life DAW that includes hundreds of sounds, amps, pedals and more with free frequent upgrades and more effects regularly. Yeah, I sound like an ad but it is a fantastic package - at least for those of the Apple inclination.😀

Mario, you will enjoy this little tidbit which shows the provided midi and controls.

Purchased and installed. I haven't had time yet to give it a good run-through, but I'm impressed so far. There's more modelling going on than I expected. The download size was only around 54 MB.

Good for you mate. You beat me to it. Problem here is I have a project I have been working on for a couple months and I have promised myself no new stuff, until this project is completed cry. So it will take a few more days. grin

I really hope they add some MIDI packs specifically for this B3. There is SO much going on in the MIDI that ships with it that takes advantage of the B3 and EZKeys 2.

Just read this thread.
Paid my $$ and downloaded EzKeys B3.

Opened up a BIAB project and. created a Super Midi Track (Funk) Organ track. Drag and dropped it to my Logic Project with a bunch of Real Tracks.
Selected the EZkeys b3...
Off and running.

It sounds great.
I too liked Logic's B3 voice a lot.... So far this one sounds excellent.

What a hoot! Actually 3 input midi channels, one for Pedal, one for lower manual and one for upper manual. So the midi library provides demos which contain all that is needed.

A couple hours of fun with EZKeys and the new Session Organ. This is why I like working in EZKeys. Even if I am not working on a project this program is just a ball. And this messin around helps hone my skills for when a true project comes up.

Normally I would have held purchase until this video came out. But in this case it as a couple days delayed for me. But I love the new Session Organ even more after watching this. So if you need to know more before purchasing, this should answer all your questions and likely will push you over the edge.

Its very convenient to use


I'm working on a latin tune. Basically an exercise for chord cadences.
Guaracha 3-2 Clave.

I took a BIAB piano comping real track- simplified.
Saved it as a midi file & dumped it in my daw.
Changed the midi track from piano
to the ezkeys organ.
Its not pefect but its pretty good.
I'm swapping piano for organ (and vice versa) throughout the exercise
Reallly helps to break it up.

I can't wait to start using it where I have existing b3 real tracks.

I have noted that the B3 organs have no variable velocity. You have to handle volume changes with CC11 (Expression). This works out surprizing well with the BIAB RT Midi since it also will not always have velocity setting.

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
