Hola, Carlos. Cuando quise enterarme de tu respuesta/petición, ya lo habías hecho al mensaje de JORD'A. He seguido las instrucciones de tu contestación y me he dirigido al soporte de la página web con la siguiente respuesta (yo también tengo el BB 2016): We don't have a Spanish language update available for the Mac version, sorry to say. We only have language patches for French, German, and Italian on the version you own. Thank you, Deryk PG Music Inc. Según dicen, no hay parche en

^ Thank you Mr Icelander for the explanation that PG should have provided in the " Memo " files. And yes, i do more than often read the memo files provided with the styles/demo's.

Said, tu peux effectivement editer une ligne de basse mais uniquement pour une piste MIDI. En effet, les RealTracks ne sont pas éditables. Une fois que l'édition est terminée, il faut geler la piste de basse sinon BIAB regénerait la piste de basse et l'édition personnelle serait perdue.

Could you email us a 'frozen' .SGU that has the issue you describe?

Another trick to make up for the crudeness of that "bar-by-bar" shortcoming, is to fiddle with the number of measures per bar over the slow-down bars (set this inside the Bar Settings dialogue). The theory here is to chop down for example a 4-beat bar into four bars of one beat each, and set a gradually slower tempo on each of these. This can, however, be quite tricky to pull off with a realistic result... I myself have actually never done this Also mind the resolution option for any

It would also be helpful (and this goes for all of you, new or old) if we knew which platform you're on, pc or mac, before we attempt to deal with the issue/questions. Quite often the answers will differ depending on platform (e.g. here, where there is no Sequencer button on Mac BBox), so it speeds up the process to know platform from the get go.

Добрый день. Михаил, я право не знаю как сделать такую выборку. Закономерности не заметил. Как писал выше, после установки BiaB2017 и обновления до 2018 с только родными стилями (без RealTracks и сторонних стилей) устанавливающимися при инсталляции программы – поведение аналогично.

First of all, I thought that was suppose to be normal behavior, because it's been puzzling me what the BB tracks are even for. I understand that I'm new, but I was wondering why sometimes the BB tracks are not being generated in the BB slots?

Leider auch dieses mal nach der neuinstallation keine besserung. Ist genau so geblieben wie es war. Ursache ist völlig unklar. Leider gibt es weitere gravierende Probleme. wenn ich einen Song abspeichere und ihn dann wieder öffne, fehlt zum Beispiel die Drumm. Angeblich fehlt der Realtrack... Das macht kein Spaß mehr. Ich lasse es einfach. Alle eingegebene Akkorde sind weg! Wozu also speichern? So ein schlechtes Programm! Wie kann sowas blos auf den Markt kommen.... Von den Realtrack sind 18

Die Sache mit den Wiederholungszeichen ist immer ein wenig tricky, am besten und musikalisch am flexibelsten ist die "Ausformulierung" aller Parts - wenn das Notenbild/Leadsheet nicht ausschlaggebend ist. Du gibts einfach alle verschiedenen Parts Intro, Strophe, Refrain, Outro einmal ein und dann gehst Du auf das graue Tools Feld und wählst Songform - Songform Dialog. Dort gibst Du die Taktzahl (Anfangstakt und Taktlänge des jeweiligen Parts ein) und unten im Fenster die Reihenfolge

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication:

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me":

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
