Band-in-a-Box for Windows
Jump to new posts No WAS for XP Users? by sixchannel @ Today at 09:40 AM

I have installed my new 2018 on the usual XP drive without any drama. However, my first test shows that the newly feted WAS driver to be used in preference to MME and ASIO, IS NOT available when running BB in XP. It does not appear in the drop down menu at any rate. Update 505 installed. NOTE - it IS there if running the BB in Windows 7. Could other XP Users please check and advise. Cheers Ian

Danke für deine Antwort und die Willkomenswünsche! Und zum anderem Post würde ich es hier gleich fortsetzten. Es freut mich sehr, dass es ein Deutsches Forum gibt, weil besonders für Spezifische Fragen ist es auf Englisch für mich schwer das richtige heraus zu filtern. Es ärgert mich gerade sehr, dass ich nicht gewartet habe für die Band in a Box 2018. Aber ich wusste es leider nicht. Jetzt habe ich seit nicht ganz einem Monat Band in a Box 2017 gekauft für den selben Preis. Ich habe die

When you are playing live, and it is time for the vocalist to shine, do you not instinctively butt out? Isn't that really the mark of an amateur to just hog along, stepping on the soloists lines? No,

I've got One Man Band (have had it for many years across several upgrades). It generally works and is designed to be used with Yamaha styles (for which there are thousands available - don't know about the more recent Yamaha offerings though). It is strictly MIDI and the interface is not as intuitive as BIAB (or Jammer Pro for that matter), but it does work and lets you play the various parts of the Yamaha style to generate songs. As I remember, you can export to MIDI, which you could then bri

OK, I see your point, but here is what I recall this QWERTY Wizard function was for when it was introduced many years ago. There were two main purposes: One was to be able to noodle around and play along with the song, and there would be no 'wrong' notes. It was really just for fun. Another more serious idea was to enter difficult rhythms. You could record rhythms without caring about the pitches. Then you could go back and drag the pitch of each note up or down as appropriate. There are
