#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

#TipTuesday - Style Changes in Band-in-a-Box®

Head to our Tips & Tricks forum to read what other Band-in-a-Box users have discovered about the program!

Like mrgeeze's recent post Style Changes within a song.. another great BIAB feature.

...My arrangement's bass Real Track was 397 (bass Acoustic Paul).
Solid but not really what I wanted for a solo.

I hit the F5 key to bring up bar setting and poked around till i found the Real Tracks command button in the upper right.
Clicked on that & quickly change the bass to 452 (Soloist (bluesy).
12 bars later I did the same and switched it back to 397.

The results were excellent...

Rebuilding the StylePicker in Band-in-a-Box® #TipTuesday

PG Music's Ember shared a great tip to our Tips & Tricks forum recently regarding rebuilding the StylePicker within the program:

Something I see come up fairly frequently, specifically with Pro and MegaPAK users, is the inability to change styles. A lot of the time, this is because they missed the important message that they need to do a rebuild of their StylePicker after they install.

To do a rebuild to force the list to update and only show what you have for Styles (unless you specifically choose to filter for N/A Styles or Show All Styles), go to Style | StylePicker (Browse All Styles) | Rebuild. You'll want to do a slow rebuild or complete rebuild, and that will update the list. You should then be able to select any of the Styles in the list.

**Note: If you are using the newer interface and not the classic one, you can find the "StylePicker" option by clicking on the magnifying glass button on the interface.

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows Feature: Drag & Drop Files

When it comes to opening songs in Band-in-a-Box®, you can use the traditional File | Open command and navigate to your file, but why not try out one of the new 2020 features, and Drag & Drop Files to Band-in-a-Box?

With this added feature, now you can drop many file types onto the Band-in-a-Box® screen and they will be loaded into the program, either as a new file or added to the current song. File types include Band-in-a-Box® songs (.SGU/.MGU), MIDI (.MID), and audio (.WAV/.M4A/.MP3). Simply drag the file and drop it anywhere on the Band-in-a-Box® screen, including various windows.

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows - Simpler Arrangements

Although we think that Band-in-a-Box does a phenomenal job creating unique accompaniment for any program user, maybe you're not looking for the accompaniment to be "too embellished"?

Good news! There's a Simple Arrangement feature within the program!

Click here to read the "Options for Simpler Arrangements" topic within our online manual, which explains how the [Simple] button on the toolbar allows you to set individual tracks or all tracks to un-embellished arrangements on a song-by-song basis or for all songs.

This option is also available in the Master Button menu, where a checkbox makes the RealTracks for the entire song play a simpler (less busy or embellished) arrangement.

Want to see this feature in action? We have explained this feature using our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows version: Click here to watch.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
