Jump to new posts Re: Forced to ditch PTW - RB convert by jazzmammal @ 12/13/17 12:21 AM

Glad RB is working for you but there's no problem with PT, all you missed is checking the box "ASIO always on" in the audio drivers window. Do that and you can hear and record at the same time. It's the same thing with RB if you use ASIO but as you found out WAS is just as good. Bob

It is normal to install BIAB on top of all older versions. If you didn’t do that, then the Bonus Paks have always been unique so I recommend you install those. The others I’m not certain, but it does no harm to install them again even if you have the files. One other tip: BIAB 2018 puts files in different places, but the old installers won’t. Run the Cleanup utility after you install older files. It’s in the /BB/Data folder.

Jump to new posts Re: Change combos by jlbelard @ 12/12/17 06:06 PM

No I was not talking about styles. A combo is the association of specific patches for bass, piano, guitar, strings... Until BIAB 2012, there was a button on the upper left corner named "Combo". You could scan through 10 combos Maybe you got rid of this possibility because it does not apply to real tracks. However when a style is made of only MIDI tracks, it was interesting to try different combos

The instrumental is cool. The 2nd track is also fun - rhythmically. it's a terrific trad style of lyric - thematically and the repeats. Well done.

Your plan sounds fine except your step 2. I don't see why it is necessary to delete the files. If I understand correctly, you essentially have a 2017 audiophile on your internal D and E drives? I'm assuming you've made changes to the program on your D and E drives, and you are thinking that you want to preserve the changes and that to do so you need to copy the entire thing. I would suggest instead that you copy just the bb folder files over. The RealTracks and Drums folders should be almos

+1 That or a picture of Alec Guinness to replace the DAW icon. Simply shrinking the window to make it look like a VST is one of the things that make BIAB & RB seem like from the stone ages. They do a pretty good job of supporting the standard, why not got that extra step a be a plugin.

Hi , I have 2017 hard drive BIAB v. I'm trying to input bar lyrics. Every time I input, the file starts to play even though its on stop/pause! Also the font is too big! I'm using the BAR LYRIC setting because there is no melody line. I'm a singer and pianist so just need to create a fake chart. Any suggestions? Thanks
