August 28, 2015 Video - Generate a Guitar Chord Solo Automatically with Band-in-a-Box!

Band-in-a-Box has a "Chord Solo" button that launches the built-in feature where Band-in-a-Box will generate a Guitar Chord Solo!

This feature allows you to generate a guitar chord solo for any melody. The program will arrange the melody to a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. You can select from among many "guitarists" in order to create your arrangement. You can also define your own guitarists; choosing parameters such as strum speed, types of voicings (Pop/Jazz), embellishments, and much more!

August 26, 2015 User Showcase Song - Demon

I was listening to Annie Sellick's "Is You Is Or Is You Not My Baby/Hit the Road Jack" and a light bulb when off, OK I know Peggy Lee had this bass line first. So I quickly jotted down some chords in Band-in-a-Box and wrote a few lyrics. BobH came over, liked it so we finished the chord progression, finished the lyrics and laid down the vocal and lead guitar parts the same afternoon.

An interesting afternoon it was! BobH, our usual lead singer, was having some timing issues with the vocal so I sang the song to give him the idea. He said 'That's it, we are keeping this track. You are the singer for this song"!
I replied "OK if I'm going to sing you are playing the lead guitar part". Thus I am singing and he is playing lead. It is his first time recording a lead guitar part but what you hear was in one take, as was my vocal.

The BiaB style is Laid Back Blues (65RS).
We deleted everything but the drums. I modified the drums to better fit the song.

BobH is playing the lead guitar.
I am playing the rhythm guitar, bass guitar, and my keyboard controller using a B3 sound.

August 25, 2015 User Showcase Song - See You Next Time

A song for the boss barrista in my morning coffee shop I call "ginge" real name Lucy
An attractive 23 year old with auburn hair but I call her ginge because she greets me with comments like "look what the cat dragged in" calling me "her little dumpling" "tubs" and other insulting nicknames! She makes a great medium italian black coffee and our banter makes the few minutes we talk a day great fun. I almost enjoy paying, well almost grin

Somehow the conversation got round to me writing songs and she bet me that I couldn't write one for her. So this is it, I did the BIAB bit before my medical incident and the vocals last night and shall play it to her today. Altho' I will sadly have a decaf coffee *eugh* but needs must now cry

August 20, 2015 Video - Using Loops in Band-in-a-Box

With Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Windows, not only did we enhance the Loops feature in Band-in-a-Box... we also released 1,000 Killer Loops (included with all Band-in-a-Box 2015 purchases)!

To watch our "Using Loops in Band-in-a-Box" video, visit

2015 - Loops Dialogs Enhanced...
-Importing of more types of ACIDized files supported.
-Instant preview of loops by double click.
-1,000 “Killer” loops added, mainly Modern Pop/Techno/Dubstep/Wordbeat drums and basses. Visit the dialog and double click on the loops to check them out!
-There is now a Transpose Type setting. This is useful for single note mid-high pitch loops (sax, violin) where you can choose to transpose to the closest chord tone (triad or 7th) instead of always transposing to the root of the next chord. This achieves "Smooth Voice Leading" and makes a single note "root" loop play various chord tones and different notes.

August 17, 2015 User Showcase Song - Double D Waltz

Picture yourself in a smoky jazz lounge listening to some cool jazz. Most jazz genres are being played from cool to bebop jazz. After a lively bebop song the band played this song.

JonD was over and wanted to do something slightly different. So after coming up with another non-typical chord progression we decided to use a waltz theme.

BiaB style = Jazz Waltz Ballad w ELGT (85RS)
The drums are MIDI and I modified them to better fit the song.
The bass is BASS-RT-926, Bass Acoustic Jazz Waltz, SW 085
(OMG the world is coming to an end - MarioD used a RT!)

I deleted everything else.

I am playing an alto sax sound via my wind controller and JonD is playing the piano part via his keyboard controller.

We hope you like it.

August 13, 2015 User Showcase Song - Live Like Yesterday

This is just a pretty rough headphone mix, and needs some background vocals.... I thought I may just go ahead and post this & maybe work on trying to improve and polish it at a later date. I just enjoy writing, but have never been comfortable with the technical aspect of recording & mixing music.

I do want to thank an anonymous forum member who REALLY gave me some encouragement and help on the whole process. I have a long way to go, but am at least starting to get the hang of it. There are some very talented and super kind and helpful artists here - this is a great place to learn, and you guys (and gals) are awesome.

Thanks for listening!

August 12, 2015 User Showcase Song - Tangle With Love

I try not to post songs so close together in time, but this one fell together so I just let it happen.

I wrote this song in 2007 but I've never recorded it. At the time I wrote it I was convinced that I had moved on from her; but I know now that I never will. So many songs that I have written are about her...

As played on guitar the verses are in 6/4 on the up beat, and the chorus is 4/4. But I managed to work it out and record it in a reggae style with BIAB. (By some fit of manipulation and magic.)

Realtracks: 1153 Bass; ReggaeClassic^1 drums; 1154 Guitar; 587 Sax; 1156 Piano; 1155 Organ; 1949 piano; 1410 piano, synth; 2155 piano electric.

August 11, 2015 User Showcase Song - Bayou In My Blood

After moving to bayou country back in '99, I soon fell in with some special folks who showed me the wonders of the coastal marsh and the Atchafalaya River Basin. At the time, my work was also related to the river so it was a large part of my daily life.

Anyway, if you look at a Google map, you will find Carencro Lake in the coastal marsh just east of the river and SSE of Morgan City, LA, which is the region in which I learned the finer points of cast netting for shrimp, running trot lines for catfish, boiling crawfish and generally having a good time:) When the whistle blows at the steel fabrication yard, it's time to head for the water to catch some crabs or redfish or bass or sac-a-lait (crappie).

At some point, one of those friends was helping me find a nice cast net. We got to talking about the area and the culture and having to run from hurricanes and about how he couldn't think of living anywhere else. 'No,' I said, 'it's in your blood.'

Well, it's not exactly a universal song since it was inspired by and written for those local people who are now like family. When we get together they all sing this and harmonize. The two gals who are singing harmony on the recording are mother and daughter. Their family is one of those the song is for. I sing in choir with them. I've been waiting to record this for a long time and was thrilled they were part of it. They're accomplished vocalists/musicians and helped me dial in the mix as well. I hope we're close....

It's a simple tune, but it's one of my favs. I'll shut up now. Fire away.
