Thanks Noel, your help greatly appreciated. Done - but there's a rhythmic glitch. My rhythm is a shuffle (style _BTGSHUF.STY - Baritone Guitar Blues Shuffle). Putting in a typical pattern (F F A# A C C D C, all 1/8 notes against an F chord), they don't quite align rhythmically. Is there a process where I can "swing" the input to be a better fit? Gordon

I have been working on a tune in BB. I took it to RB and I am about ready to add the vocals. Does anuone have any recommendations on mics, techniques, etc.? Is there a tutorial that has already been posted? Any feedback is appreciated.

Hello out there. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I want to do a song in the style of a New Orleans funky parade band. Something like Big Chief/Indian Red. Is there a BB style like that?

Thanks heaps Scott, Robert and Rob. Man I've put some hours into this one. Rob I know what you mean about the intro. I've kinda been ignoring it the way that you do until someone mentions it. It's not the drums; it's my guitar tracking at the beginning. Easy fix in the DAW. Thanks!
OK, I've got a song I'm working on, which is still a MIDI file . . . well, actually I've saved it as an RB file, but still it's MIDI. Anyway, it doesn't end exactly at the end of a measure. But I want the song to continue for a couple of more measures because I've added some stereo delay to the mix and I want the delay to ring out and diminish. Well, I've found the command for inserting measures (Edit> Insert blank bars into song...), but this has to be done at an even measure point, and if

Jump to new posts How Many Songs by rworkman @ Today at 11:56 AM

I'm totally new to BIAB, and have the Ultra Plus Pkg. I'm not sure which folders to scan when building the song list in the Song Picker Dialog Screen. How many "Songs" are there? I have a "50 Songs" folder, is that it? If I scan the entire BB folder, it seems to load everything; styles, riffs, etc. What am I missing here?

Jump to new posts Re: problem with substyles by Dave @ Today at 11:41 AM

I agree with MusicStudent - they are midi styles that support more than just an A and a B substyle. It might be an instrument change, or a change in pattern, but I don't think it was much more than that. I think the intent was to have a different "feel" for the intro, A, B, and bridge sections. I believe you can build multi-styles with the Style Builder, perhaps with more than 4 substyles (but I haven't tried it). You can identify RT in a style with the style builder, so you coul

Perhaps you could post a list of the missing styles. This can be done in the stylepicker by 1.listing only styles that are n/a 2. Pressing copy list (which copies a tab delimited text list to clipboard) 3. Pasting that text list here (Note that the list would look better pasted into Excel, and then you'd only need to post a column of the stylenames here. But if you don't have that handy pasting the full list is fine too )

<< I might be getting hung up on definitions here. I want to use the same style through the entire song, just different forms of it. >> Use the method described by Wendy in that case. Unfold the song into one continuous chorus and use part markers to change between the A/B styles of one style. You are correct in your understanding that the method Noel described allows you to change Styles but not substyles. Noel's method will work if you find two styles that use the same instru

Get To Know the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab Feature - Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows

One of the new features we added with Band-in-a-Box® 2017 is the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab RealTracks. Click here to listen & watch this new feature in action!

Detailed information:
New! 12-Key "Woodshedding" RealTracks
Many people use the RealTracks feature in Band-in-a-Box® to learn how to "play like the pros." This is because you can see notation, tab, on-screen guitar, and more as you hear the music. Now we've taken this to a higher level, by providing some "12-Key" RealTracks that have been recorded in all 12 keys! In previous versions, you might decide to learn to play by studying the parts played by the RealTracks artists, and watch the notation to do so. Many people have found this a great way to learn, but it had the following issues:
-Since RealTracks were based on only 5 keys, they were transposed much of the time, which would make the guitar part unplayable for a student in some cases.
-The tab/notation was good for guitar, but lacked some precision and graphical representation of bends, pull-offs, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.

We have solved that by creating some Guitar RealTracks with recording in all 12 keys! So you can see what a pro would play over an Ab chord, and you won't see them play on a G transposed up to an Ab, and carefully transcribed notation, with correct bend/hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides... So now you (we!) students have no more excuses! You can watch and learn from the pros!

Plus, Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts are available with highly accurate and readable notation, including new graphical markings for bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs! To see these in action, load in one of the 12-key Hi-Q notation RealTracks by Brent Mason. You can also enter your own guitar notation using these features. Just right click on a note to set its properties to include bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.
