Interested in submitting your own Band-in-a-Box® Testimonial Video? Read on...
How to Enter: Create a video testimonial that explains who you are and the kind of music you create. Be sure to answer:
What style of music do you prefer?
How do you use Band-in-a-Box?
Other information you can include:
How did you hear about the program?
How long have you been using the program for?
Do you use the Windows or the Mac version?
What are you favorite features of Band-in-a-Box?
Which Band-in-a-Box® features do you use the most?
The video should be 2-10 minutes long. We’re looking for a variety of video styles. You could:
Star in the video on your own.
Have someone interview you.
Use a screenshot of Band-in-a-Box® while you’re working with it.
Use images and recordings of you performing with your Band-in-a-Box® songs.
A few things to keep in mind:
1. If you're doing it in an interview style, it's best to answer your questions with the question as PART of the answer. For example, if you're answering the question "What's your favorite feature in Band-in-a-Box", rather than launching into it saying something like "The guitar window, because...", for the purpose of the video it would be better to say "I think my favorite feature is the guitar window, because..."
2. Any audio you have is great. For example, if you were filming yourself recording a guitar solo into Band-in-a-Box, rather than just including the video file with the audio from that, it would be great to also include the actual recorded tracks and Band-in-a-Box® files. That way we can sync them up and use the better recorded audio along with the video rather than using the audio recorded by the camera.
3. If you're able to shine a lamp or two directly at yourself when filming yourself talking, that makes for a much nicer looking resulting video.
If you need assistance putting your video together, just send us some footage - we can put together the video using your resources!
To submit your video, email firstname.lastname@example.org with "Video Testimonial" in the subject line, making sure to include your name and contact information. If you require assistance in submitting your video, please let email@example.com know (or post right here in the forum).

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit
We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!
By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.
The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens. (and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")
Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604) <--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released 64 bit application
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604) <--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released 32 bit application
We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!
With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.
-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.
Song Titles Browser Enhancement
-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
