There is also a song settings option to vary styles for the middle choruses. This option will play the first and last chorus with whatever part markers you use, but play the song as if the "B" marker had been set for the middle chorus(es).

The track settings section for "force track to simple" is greyed out and cannot be changed back. It just says track alrady set to simple. How do you change it back to normal? Thanks

Jump to new posts What stand alone guitar tuner do you use if any? by musiclover @ 53 minutes 21 seconds ago

Hi folks, Just wondering what stand alone tuner do you use for your guitar (other than the clip on headstock type) I have been using this one for last 20 years, same as this one advertised on ebay, Wouldn't mind a second. |Lock on guitar Tuner I do a search now and again but very few available in UK and the US ones are usually a good price if I was to pay the cost to ship to here. I have found it to be a great little tuner and so easy on batteries, usually I just reuse the smoke alarm

Jump to new posts Re: Using BIAB in a live setting by Frank Alves @ Today at 09:12 AM

I transfer all my BIAB tracks as WAV files to a Digitech JamMan Solo XT looper pedal. I am able to store them as single files and not loops http://digitech.com/en-US/products/jamman-solo-xt I then use a DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch to scroll through the various tracks and to start and stop. I'm able to do everything by the use of the foot switch, which I think makes it less obvious to my audience. The pedal is connected to my Bose LI. That's my way to do it, but I know there are many m

Have you tried inserting some (probably any) MIDI command at the point you want the song to end. Try inserting a patch change (even if it's just changing it to the same patch, or a pedal off, or whatever you want past the point of the last note and see if that helps out. Just hit the F2 key on a MIDI track to bring up the event list. Go to the end of the list and you can create new events directly from the list and specify where you want it to be. I can't test it right now, but I think you o

Hmmm... Not at my music computer right now, but i do know that I performed this action earlier this morning, so I know it works. Probably not your problem, but make sure you are double clicking on the white part of the bar, not the bar number, as that is used to change part markers.

Quote:BUT unfortunately, the issue I mentioned above is not fixed in BB2017.457. Still can not trigger the default soft synth via Midi Thru using ASIO driver with transport stopped. I don't understand why this is so hard to fix when it works in RealBand, and it worked in BB2016. This really needs to be fixed. If I'm working out a part on the keyboard, I don't necessarily need the chord progression going, but I do want to hear the solo instrument. Once I work it out, then I'll hit either play

I've had experience with TEAC/Tascam as far back as 1974 starting with the 3340s 4 Track in our practice/recording room with Angel Oak. I had use of my brother's 3340s for several years. I've had experience with the DA38, two 4-track porta studios, and 8 track porta studio, a 24 channel mixer, several cassette decks and double cassette decks, cd player/recorder, guitar practice cd player and several digital multi track decks. My personal experience is that I've never had any kind of failure

A little late to the party and our word of choice has already been used but here it is again: CLASSY You are a great singer but added to that is how well you mix your vocals and whatever effects you use seem to be so subtle and effective. Yep, heartfelt indeed. J&B
