September 29, 2017 User Showcase Song - Far Beyond The Clouds (Remixed Version)

”Far Beyond The Clouds” is the song I posted on Nov. 3 last year. The most notable point of the song is that I used "Granular Electric Guitar 1" for the instrument of the melody which is very unique and beautiful, and fits to the melody very well. I think it is one of my best songs so far and I like it very much. This time, I made its remixed version which has more classical flavor. I believe this new version is like a new song and is as good as the original version. I am posting it to share it with you. I hope you like it.

I have been asked many times why don't you sing. Well here's why.

BiaB style = BEEB Slow-slow 12/8 blues

I kept the drums, bass, and piano. I am playing the slide, rhythm and lead guitars as well as trying to sing.

What do you think about this one?

September 26, 2017 Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training! #TipTuesday

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

This folk song is dedicated to my good friend. The music itself has got inspiration from celtic artists, especially from a scottish band called Runrig.

Everything else (except the wind sample) was created by another friend of mine, Band-in-a-box smile

September 21, 2017 #TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!

September 19, 2017 User Showcase Song - Kapapa Island waltz on the lapsteel

My latest tune composed within the last week. Kapapa Island waltz. Just stuck an imaginary pin in Google maps and came up with the name

I DO hope I've managed to capture the Hawaiian flavour with the backing here. In my opinion the pedal steel from BIAB gives the tune a fantastic lift.

September 18, 2017 Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

Hello Friends,

Here's a little blues rock ditty that David Snyder and I co-wrote. David was on the road so I mixed it. First time I've used Neutron Elements.

It was great working with David. He is so talented and easy to work with. It's been such a long time since I've done a collab or posted anything new on here. Thank you David! Virtual hugs.

Comments welcome. Hope you enjoy.

September 14, 2017 User Showcase Song - Tune 1 (Spontaneous Groovin' Combustion)

Tune-1 was built around a little seven note sax riff I stumbled upon while practicing.

This is my very first production with PG Music software.

I would love you to suggest a great name for this tune! Café des Amis was one thought.

All tracks are RealTracks with the exception of MIDI acoustic bass and my six tenor sax tracks.

The Basic style was Jazz Fred I believe.

Other than BIAB/RB, only Audacity was used for a dash of post-mix editing (crop, Amplify, Fade Out).

The 10-band EQ and PG Reverb were used on most tracks, with a dash of Chorus/Echo on the sax solo only.

Thanks very much for listening!

September 13, 2017 User Showcase Song - Sedona Sunrise

With this song I am continuing with another instrumental. A few years ago I accompanied my mom on a trip to Sedona, Arizona. I feel the Red Rocks area around Sedona is some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever find. This place left a lasting impression on me, and as a result this song was born! I recorded this for my mom because she loves this area so much. I was going for a "Southwest" feel/sound with this track and I feel that I got pretty close. I hope someone enjoys it! Thanks, Torrey

September 12, 2017 User Showcase Song - I'll Never Let You Go

For this song, I've used BIAB instruments from four different styles and I've spent a lot more time than usual on the overall production. I hope this is evident to the listener.

Apart from the vocals, electric lap steel solo and Roland GR-20 guitar synth backing vocals, all provided by myself, I've used Drums, Bass, Baritone electric guitar, gritty electric guitar, organ, and two different pianos.

The theme will be familiar to anyone who has heard my previous songs.
Past personal relationships and their sometimes painful consequences have certainly provided me with plenty of subject matter.

September 07, 2017 Macworld Review - Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

Keith White has just shared his Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac review with us: Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

While working with the new Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac version, Keith spent some time using the enhanced Song Titles browser feature within the StylePicker - make sure you check out his song links to hear his results!

I have used Band-in-a-Box for over 20 years professionally and have found it one of the most professional and useful programs in my arsenal. The 2017 version takes a great program to new heights.

Pros: vastly improved user control of interface; fabulous range of new sounds from all over the world: useful improvements to Song Titles Browser and Style Picker.

Cons: (as usual) can you have too much of a good thing?
