Hey Dave! Thanks for doing that. I am a bit of a BIAB newbie so wouldn’t have thought of selecting a pop style then tweaking the drums. Great idea, I will do it tomorrow and post back. Thanks for the suggestions on listening to the song. I haven’t heard the Robben Ford album but I do like his playing a lot. I have heard the original BB version on Regal. What an amazing album that is. I don’t usuall go for modern versions of songs, especially when EC puts his spin on them, but on this occ

HI Beatmaster Maybe because Guitars normally play an octave lower than they are notated. This keeps the notation in the treble clef for convenience Therefore the piano roll would reflect that but sound normal to you that is one octave higher than showing on the roll. I am sure Mat will come in on this if I am wrong, Mike

My \bb folder is just on 152Gb. I agree with Noel that if you are using the same drive from several years ago, the storage requirements will have increased with the installation of later versions. I think the suggestion of getting a larger drive is in order.

Anyone know of a way to get the ujam virtual guitar working with biab. It seems it is reading to low on the piano roll scales, if that makes sense. Downloaded the trial love the sound but..no good if I cannot use in biab.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing Thank you so much. It's good to hear that the attitude is coming through.

Jerry, You mention that you have the latest version of BIAB. You also mention (in your second post) that you are using a 149GB USB drive supplied by PG Music "several years ago". When I put these two bits of information together, it sounds like you have been updating the more recent versions of BIAB onto the USB drive from a few years back. Is this correct? If my thinking is correct, I imagine that USB drive that you are presently using is getting near the end of its ability to stor

I also support 16 tracks and virtual tracks, with the ability to export each individually, a select few, or all at once. This would let a lot more work get done inside BIAB before moving to a DAW.
