I own an Epiphone ES-339 Pro that I got in a trade. A real sweet guitar, well made, and with the coil tapping I can get a variety of great tones. I'm currently thinking of putting a Bigsby on it. Frank

Has this been fixed? I can't generate any of the tambourine real tracks. I gave up after trying several. I get a violation then have to close Realband. I'm running 2017 all the latest updates on windows 10. And running as administrator doesn't make any difference. Access violation at address 0098EDF6 in module 'RealBand.exe'. Read of address 00000AD4. Thanks in advance for your help. Oh, other real tracks generate fine - it's just the tambourines.

There are OBVIOUSLY many great things that can be said for this song. Many have already been said. Many have also said that many have already been said. So I'm going to focus on just a few.

Set the Tempo to the desired number: Then open Bar Settings (F5) In bar settings (F5):Reset all bars This is a quick way to do it if you have not made any other bar setting changes. If you have, you reset everything. or File\Open Special\Audio Chord Wizard Utilities\Erase Tempo Map This only erases the tempo map. Charlie

Jump to new posts Re: SOMETHING STRANGE by HearToLearn @ Today at 09:19 AM

I just heard this song for the first time thanks to the "featured" feature (strange to say) on the forums. What a cool way to hear things I hadn't before! Anyway, I really like the work you did! Personally, it sounds like a Sweet (band) song to me. Am not sure if you are familiar with them or influenced by them? Those are some really nice hooks, both vocal and instrumental. I am such a sucker for stacked vocals like that. VERY VERY COOL!

Jump to new posts Re: Midi keyboard Wizard and external keyboard? by Mike "ex-genius" Kelley @ Today at 09:14 AM

LOL -- sorry, yeah, it's a bit difficult to understand the right nomenclature, but I was indeed referring to having what this old man used to think of as a midi keyboard but nowadays is just a midi controller, external to the program, and invoke the midi keyboard wizard (which itself is a bit of a misleading term, I guess). The manual cleared that all up, and I could have sworn I looked there originally but couldn't find it. And now that I have one (the external controller) I find it does work

Jump to new posts Re: Piano roll velocity editing in Biab by jazzmammal @ Today at 09:10 AM

Funny, to me that's not a tip or trick, lassoing the notes is regular usage. Just click on the Help button in the piano roll window, it's all there and there's a vid on this too. The only problem here is when the midi is a drum track and you're trying to change the velocity of one note like the snare for example. That one note is buried by the other notes hitting at the same time. What I do then is use the piano keys on the left. If the note I want to change is a Bb hit Bb on the piano

Et problem nogle få brugere har haft: Band-in-a-Box kommer med et budskab, som siger at programmet er blokeret, fordi man har installeret på for mange computere.
