Jump to new posts Understanding the Different Band-in-a-Box PAKs by jford @ 48 minutes 20 seconds ago

The offerings from PGMusic sometimes cause a little confusion. First of all, the basic BIAB program is exactly the same in every PAK you buy; it's not like some programs where they remove programmatic features based on the level you buy. The difference is in the number of MIDI styles, RealStyle, RealTracks, RealDrums, and SuperMIDI Tracks you get. The entry level version of BIAB is the ProPAK. A number of folks on the forum have been after PGMusic to rename this, as Pro tends to imply "to

"part time user like most of us here years to figure all that out" Maybe it is partially because it was/is written a bit clunky...just maybe a little?

Hi Graham, As you always do, you found the perfect touch for this beautiful waltz. I enjoyed this very much. The key nodulation around 1:40 is a very nice touch. It's my opinion that key changes in a song give it a new energy and a refreshing sound. Nicely done, Graham! Alan

Hello ... Cool!From your info, i really wasn't sure what to expect. Vert creative use of BIAB and your lyric is equally creative. I've been a big fan of evolving choruses (which you labeled as a bridge here - makes no difference) when appropriate. It certainly works in this one! Enjoyed my listen - really cool song! My museum is still in the planning stages. Since I'm almost 72 years old, I'm not counting on its completion! Thanks for a great listen. Alan

Hi Soulagent, Are you clicking Generate and Play after entering chords, or just Play? When you describe "shutting down every five minutes and going to "run as Administrator", are you saying that Band-in-a-Box is crashing every 5 minutes, or are you closing it that frequently for some other reason? By the way, you can set BIAB to automatically run as administrator. Open your Band-in-a-Box folder (usually C:\BB), right-click on bbw.exe and select Properties, then click on the Co

Thanks Jim. Actually, that's my eldest son, Gordon, not Don Junior. I think Gordon has the best-trained voice in the family.

Hi rharv, Thanks, but I understand the math. I was just having a senior moment figuring out how to make it happen between BIAB and my DAW. Floyd pointed me in the right direction and I have it sorted now.

"BTW, did you see anywhere that tapping the FX send will shut off the internal FX?" Tapping the Fx send does not shut off the internal Fx. The internal Fx is either turned off by having all of the Channel Fx knobs turned completely down and/or the Fx to Main turned completely down. The design intent seems to be to have the Fx Send dedicated to an external Fx and return to a clear Channel. The Fx Channel knob for the Channel used for the return should have the Channel Fx knob turne

Makes sense. However I can't support the suggestion for the same reason given by Matt, I use many "non-standard" instruments as do many styles.
