Question Any other Band-In-A-Box users here?

I have been using Band-In-A-Box (BIAB) since the mid 1990s, starting with DOS version 7, then version 11 Pro for Windows, 2006 Ultra Pack, currently on 2009 Ultra Plus Pack. I am eagerly awaiting version 2012.5 or 2013.

When I was introduced to Reason 3 in 2006 I thought it was a match made in heaven. Blow out General MIDI beds in BIAB, port them into Reason for revoicing and massaging--marvelous. At the time I had to port everything into a third DAW to record audio. Now I can do everything in two grand steps, from BIAB into Reason 6.

I have met only one other Reason user on the BIAB forums (www.pgmusic.com --> Forums), so I thought I'd approach it from the other direction. Show of hands?

Regards,

Richard

Hi Richard,

I've been using BIAB since late 90's and Reason since version 1.0. Agreed it's awesome combo now.

Juan,

What version of BIAB are you using now? I'd like to know anything you can tell me about the music you make and how you do it.

I believe I still have a copy of PT version 1. It came free with BIAB version 7 for DOS. Both were on one or two floppies. Problem is finding a copy of DOS, a Soundblaster 16 sound card to run it with, and a PC that will support either. Wait--I've got a 486 with a 50 Mb HD I could sell you, cheap!

These days BIAB comes with a program called Real Tracks, which is a hybrid of Power Tracks (which is still made) and BIAB. You might want to give it a shufti (look).
