    Hello music lovers.
    As most of you know I am an avid BIAB user. I would love to hear your fawm demos using this tool. Please post a link to your song here and I will try and listen and comment on each one. Have a great fawm.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 2019

    Most of my songs are BIAB.

    https://fawm.org/songs/89104/ used the vocoder from biab

    And https://fawm.org/songs/89395/

  • @terimariesings  Feb 2019

    All of my songs use BIAB, but I'm too new at this to figure out how to post a link. I'm terimariesings if you don't mind searching. First year to do this and only two songs posted so far.

  • @jcooper  Feb 2019

    @terimariesings Here you go. Just copy and paste the song link

    Two songs already! That is awesome

  • @jcooper  Feb 2019

    Here are my first three songs. All made with BIAB

    I had a bear of a time getting this to end like I wanted it. At first biab kept adding extra bars to the end of the song. Finally figured that out. Then I somehow put it on the wrong number of bars, so it cut off the end. Finally got it to hold the last chord and actually play. I'd still like to have the chord hold longer, but I'm not sure how to achieve this yet. Anyway, here's my first FAWM 2019 song in biab.

  • @keithcuts Feb 2019

    @valeriecox I struggle too sometimes with getting biab to end perfectly the way I want. Learning curve I guess. Mybe @jcooper can shed some light? My latest https://fawm.org/songs/92188/

  • @krayzie003  Feb 2019

    I'm not using BIAB a lot at the moment because of the electronic styles of music I've been working on. But every once in a while a real track adds a nice organic sound to the track. I used a realtrack piano in my latest creation. https://fawm.org/songs/92245/

  • @jcooper  Feb 2019

    Yeah. Endings are sometimes tricky in BIAB. I find the best results if the last chord of the song is the tonic and then I have a BIAB generate four bar ending (on the tonic too). So, in my latest song, the last chord (G) is in bar 116 (also the key of the song) and then I generate four bars of G (bars 117 to 120). If I write a song and I want to end on another chord I will usually fiddle around in RealBand to get it sounding like I want. @valeriecox @keithcuts

    Still learning, 😀

    I'm kind of an expert of the BiaB main program now, but haven't yet tried RealBand. Thus I do everything in my DAW. Got a feeling that RB would make everything a lot easier, though.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 2019

    @bithprod I do everything in Cubase. I tried using Realband on a couple tunes but I couldn't wrap my head around it that well. I just got my upgrade to BIAB 2019 in the mail the other day and can't wait to install it and try the new BIAB VST. That will probably wait till after FAWM though.

    Here is my latest FAWM song featuring BIAB. The piano, guitar and bass are all BIAB Realtracks. https://fawm.org/songs/92432/

  • @keithcuts Feb 2019

    @bithprod fyi your songs aren’t playing in the player at the moment. Tried a few different ones. Great you are mastering biab. It’s been a quest for me this year

  • @jcooper  Feb 2019

    @bithprod i use real band as my main daw. I do a lot of generating extra tracks and regenerating as well and I haven’t found a reason to change since I can do what I want to do for the type of music I produce (county/folk singer /songwriter type stuff) @krayzie003 is producing wonderful electronic pieces at the moment and I am pretty sure Rb is not the best tool for that.

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 2019

    https://fawm.org/songs/93460/

    Another BiaB homework assignment. 😀

  • @krayzie003  Feb 2019

    I used BIAB on my latest song for the funk guitar and electric piano. https://fawm.org/songs/93678/

  • @keithcuts Feb 2019

    https://fawm.org/songs/92673/ Really likes the way all the instruments and vocals came together on this one

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2019

    I’m new to BIAB and am struggling a little, especially with endings. I’m going to post a bluegrass song pretty soon however.

  • @folkguy  Feb 2019

    I started this out in BIAB, then rendered the tracks out and imported into reaper, added vocals and guitar, mixed, then exported to audacity to trim normalize, fade and encode as mp3. Seems complicated now that I list it out. But it wasn't.

  • @lvgd09  Feb 2019

    @jcooper Hi, I haven't checked into this thread yet so it's about time I do. Mostly because I have a new song I'm pushing...lol

    Longtime band in a box user here. I have been using band in a box for more than 15 years. I'm not into the real instrument stuff they offer and mainly stay only interested in the midi. Looks like I have a lot of songs to listen to in this thread. I will I just need more time because I was working on music too long and I'm out of time right now.
    https://fawm.org/songs/93890/

  • @keithcuts Feb 2019

    I have a similar process to @folkguy but without the audacity. 😆😆 that sounds funny. A collab here https://fawm.org/songs/93899/

  • @jcooper  Feb 17

    Hey @keithcuts your link doesn’t work. It takes me to the complete list of songs?

  • @keithcuts Feb 17

    Ah. Fixed it @jcooper

  • @valeriecox  Feb 22

    I got around to another biab song. The software is so good. It plays better than I do. 😝
    https://fawm.org/songs/96499/

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 22

    Here’s another tune that’s just me and BIAB. https://fawm.org/songs/96086/
    I did replace the bass track with my own however.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 22

    Here is one i did for a skirmish. Words and music recorded in Biab in less than 40 minutes. https://fawm.org/songs/89530/ You cant beat it when you are in a hurry and dont have time to play multiple instruments or get the crew round. Interesting comments on Real Band. I find it fantastic but ive done hundreds of songs in it so its second nature to me. I only go out into my other DAWs when i am finishing off for an album or putting song out for sale. Joanne Cooper who started this thread has a great set of videos on how to use Biab and real band. The lot for $10 i think. There is also an excellent PG music forum. I got great answers to questions there.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 23

    Here's one done completely with BIAB Realtracks. It's part of my annual murder ballad series. https://fawm.org/songs/96837/

  • @jcooper  Feb 23

    here is my latest creation wit BIAB. This one was in response to the same first line challenge.
    https://fawm.org/songs/96900/

  • @gemhughs Mar 19

    Here is a Biab song that @Klaus graciously recorded for me adding not only his vocal but also delightful background harmonies... I hope you will enjoy his performance as much as I do on "Blue Jean Baby"

    I used BiaB until a few FAWMs ago, when I got mad at PG Music for what I thought was deceptive advertising. The short story is that the upgrade ads implied (at least to me) that I was getting more in the upgrade than they actually provided. So I felt cheated, I wrote to them. They did nothing. So I stopped using them. But. . . . it's a very nice tool (as of course you all know) for roughing out a song quickly. So. . . I'm thinking about getting back into it.

  • @paulhenry  2 weeks

    BTW, anyone else have mixed feelings about PG Music as a company?

  • @kevinemmrich  1 week

    I have never had any issues with PG Music. But I first got the everything pak and then always got the Ulra-Pak upgrades, so I was always getting all the realtraks and accesories. Therefore, I couldn't be disappointed. The other options were pretty confusing, though!.

    I haven't upgraded or used BIAB in a couple of years, but I think it is a very powerful program -- especially if you just want to do backing tracks. I have BIAB 2017.
