December 10, 2019 49 of Your Problems Solved with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!
With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!
We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.
This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"
So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.

December 02, 2019 User Showcase Song - Xmas Blues
I used RD blues shuffle hard, 420 bass and 421 guitar. I have used 421 more than any RT, just a great track by Jack Pearson. I wrote the song, sang it (rare for me), played the harp part and played the guitar solo. I used Amplitube for the solo. Nothing great but it's Christmas.
Thanks to all who made me so welcome in this my first year on the Showcase Forum. What a great time I've had.
