June 30, 2014 Band-in-a-Box for Mac - So impressed by this upgrade!

Fellow Mac Users,
If you're still on the fence, and can't decide if the 2014 BB Mac upgrade is worth a look - go for it. You'll be glad you did.
The best features of the Windows version are now available to Mac users, and they are awesome!
I had tried running the Windows Version with Parallels on my PowerBook. ...worked so-so but also very slow. I am pretty limited in my time available for music, and spent a good deal of time waiting for the program to load. Any new entry or experiment with a new instrument track resulted in a lot of down time as well. It actually took a lot of enjoyment out of my favorite hobby.
With the introduction of BB 2014 for Mac, I switched back from the Windows version (after replacing my hard drive with a solid state drive - got a great deal on a 480 GB) and can't believe how fast this thing loads now! Any changes I want to try are almost instantaneous! And the improved interface is super! The fun is back, and I can take advantage of what time I have to actually feel like I've accomplished something!
Thanks, Peter and PG staff for the greatest product ever!

June 26, 2014 Band-in-a-Box for Windows - Newbie Questions and intro

I am very new to recording and using electronic equipment though I have been working in the computer service business for many years. That being said I purchased Band In A Box a few months ago before I had my audio interface (from guitar to USB) so I jammed with it a bit, programmed a few chord changes, and put it down for a while.
Please offer any suggestions...

Any suggestions, before I contact the help desk at PG?

June 23, 2014 User Showcase Song - For Love

It's a short song with a combination of talking and singing. The song was composed in Band in a Box. Next we entered the chords into Songsmith and used the 'Float 1' style (which is probably also present in the Ultra Plus Pak). The Garritan sfz's in Songsmith gave the style the timbre it needed for this song.
All Songsmith styles are fully compatible with BIAB since PG music created them.
(Additionally: not all BIAB styles are fully compatible with Songsmith, however most of them are).

June 16, 2014 User Showcase Song - Addie's Trail

This is a new folk rock song I wrote about discovering an old trail path and following it hiking up a mountainside. It's a love song for nature. I used two RT's I've never used before. The Koto synth and the Tres Guajira. I'll post a link to the video with lyrics shortly. Written in BB, tracks generated/recorded in RB, mixed with Reaper and Mixbus.

June 13, 2014 User Showcase Song - Take Me Down

Hello PG music community. This is a new song I've been working on. From a production standpoint, it is still very much a work in progress (scratch vocal and arrangement with everything playing all the time). I was inspired by the more serious subject recent works of Floyd and Gruverider and decided to post this earlier than I originally planned. It's very dark for me-the melody came first and sometimes the music just writes the lyrics. Try to listen through the off pitch notes. I am still learning the lyrics and it was rough (trying out my SM7B after hearing Gruverider's killer vocals, although I don't think it will have the same magic for me). Thanks for listening. Take care. Greg

The tracks all came together-I'll post the name later. I only put the string quartet on top which I felt worked beautifully. I'm constantly blown away by what this program is capable of.

June 12, 2014 User Showcase Song - Choking

1978 (or thereabouts) I lived in Lindenwold, NJ.
I've mentioned that before in another song from that era.
To suppliment the few acoustic-solo-act jobs I could find, I got a job waiting tables
at what appeared to be a former Steak and Ale (that Tudor-type building)
on the fabulous White Horse Pike.
At that time, the restaurant was owned/run by Lola who would play accordian
and sing from the small stage, dressed as if she had been a Las Vegas showgirl
20 years prior. (but that's another story...)

One day as we were rolling setups, one of the waitresses began complaining
about how bad her life was. I listened. She just needed that.

Then... I put it all in a song. This is her story...

June 06, 2014 User Showcase Song - Those days are gone

We thought it would be a nice idea to make a rock song (for a change). Uh....Bubblegum Rock to be more precise, ha ha.
We hope you like our new track:

Those days are gone

It's a song about the well-known "writers block". Rob wrote the song together with the drummer of the band he played in, back in 1995.
At that time the song had a totally different arrangement and rhythm.
The lyrics back then weren't exactly coherent (they sounded okay, but were actually about nothing).
Anne-Marie decided to write some additional lyrics which made more sense, added a background vocal, and suddenly we knew what this song was really about: writers block.
She also created the video.

June 03, 2014 UserTracks - Is there a measure setting for bar boundaries?

This is a complete orchestral template.

The UT is completed... tried it with some number of various styles.
End result every bar, and also every chord change abruptly chops it up.

The chord part would understand. However, did change the arrangement
deleting groups of chords. Leaving 2-3 blank bars open. On each bar
there is an abrupt change. Loses all the flow of the strings.

Is there some setting within BIAB that dictates how each bar boundary acts?
Am aware that BIAB software does use pieces and parts of a RT to create
the sounds we hear.
Apparently same thing happens with UT's.

One Friday night my friend JonD and I got together and after a few cocktails and came up with this chord progression. A couple of weeks later we got together and worked on it until it is what it is now. JonD is playing the Fender Rhodes and Vibes via his MIDI keyboard controller and I am playing the bass, lead and rhythm guitars. Band in a Box supplied the drums.

The BiaB style was Smooth Jazz Ballad (65 RS). We deleted every thing but the drums and played our own instruments.

We hope you like it.
