November 25, 2019 Your Band is Always Ready with Band-in-a-Box®!

We thought it rather fitting (since yesterday was "Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day"), to remind our program users that not only can you write a song with Band-in-a-Box®, you can play along with your very own band with Band-in-a-Box® too!

With so many features available in the program, it can be easy to forget the Band-in-a-Box mantra:

Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you'd like, and Band-in-a-Box® does the rest, automatically generating a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns in a wide variety of popular styles!

And playing along with your very own on-demand backup band is the best way to master your skills, your Unique Talent - since no one plays quite like you!

Have you recorded your own performace with Band-in-a-Box® backing you up? Share it here, and we'll celebrate your unique talent too!

November 25, 2019 User Showcase Song - The Narcissist's Wife

Here's a song built from the ground up with BIAB.

Mixed and augmented in Reaper. click here to listen

1st guitar as played by my co-writer from 76 - Eric Drabwell... click here to listen

2nd BIAB CELLO solo... click here to listen

I used two lots of compression as well as overdrive on the cello to help it cut through a thick mix.

I started with a couple of chord progressions and the lyrics, (rejected by a couple of potential users because of the theme).
Chord sequence placed in BIAB and a full arrangement built in there.
I then, slowly, replaced the BIAB guitars & bass with my own playing to get the sounds/riffs I wanted.
Stephen accepted the challenge.
The vocals have been manually de-essed using a pre-fx volume envelope. In the choruses I opted for a send parallel vocal track set up with overdrive and a flanger & blended with the original to give the vocals a boost & some grit.
Vantage Bass, Fender Squire Bullet Mustang, Fender 12 string acoustic, super cheap spring reverb pedal and some handy Marshall Cabinet impulse responses helped liven things a little. I also double tracked the arpeggio guitar - one set DI & the other mic'd amp.
BIAB Real Drums, organ & Ahhs remain from the build process.
I HOPE to have a real solo by next week.

November 22, 2019 User Showcase Song - The Way of the World

I haven't posted a song in a while and made the decision to get to work and get something up here again. Sorry I've been gone for a while but life tends to get in the way. This tune is a little bit "preachy" but I promise you I was looking in the mirror often on this! It's about how we are just not as caring for our neighbor as we used to be in society. Thank you all for your time to listen and comment! I appreciate it so much!

November 18, 2019 Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.

There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Hi all wrote this a little while back. All comments welcome.

A fast rockabilly folk style that features a classic rockabilly electric guitar
playing blues and rock 'n' roll licks.
Two acoustic guitars strum similar patterns
but one has six strings and the other has twelve.
The acoustic bass plays "in 2", often alternating between the root and fifth.
RockabillySwing^ RealDrums play in their first variation,
which includes simple toms in the A section and tom 8ths in the B section.
This song is in the key of A and uses pop and dominant chords that change every 2 to 8 beats.

November 12, 2019 User Showcase Song - Drive Time - guitar instrumental

Ever wanted to get in your car and just GO? Here's some guitar music to do it to. I hope you like it - Song Link - Drive Time

This Country Rock style guitar Intro came out of experimenting with some BandInABox styles.
I'm not very conversant with American country music but thought that _CDRIVIN.STY was superb so put this tune to the Style. I hope you like it.
One of the inspirational Floyd Jane's writing concepts is used here - A-B-A-B-C-B, to break up the run of the tune.
Guitar is my hand-built Strat, Kinman FV pickups, with a touch of Boss CS-3 compressor, Behringer US600 Shifter pedal, echo via an ancient Alesis Q2 unit, Joyo ACTone amp sim.

November 07, 2019 User Showcase Song - Not Today, Blues

This song I made in 2018, but never brought it to this forum. The recording wasn't too well then and it was hidden somewhere between other songs. At that time I didn't know how to deal with Soundcloud. But I liked the song very much so I re-recorded it these days. I believe it's improved now, but you have to judge if I'm right at that.

Not Today

It is Blues, so it is sad. But I think you might like the sologuitar the most.
I made it after sitting in a car for hours (as a passenger) with aweful music on the radio. At home, making this song was the first thing I did. I don't make Bluessongs so often, but sometimes I have to make one. Like that carride...

The style is Soultry, the tempo 95. The key C#.
I haven't change one instrument, only added the sologuitar: 576 RealTracks.
