Has anyone compiled a list of what RealTracks/Library/Holds… folders correspond to what instruments?
and if so where can I get it?
Thanks...

Does my question make sense?

I would like to import a particular "hold" into a Cakewalk Sonar project...
I know where they are... but they're numbered, not labeled...
I need a list of which instruments correspond to which Library/Hold folder #

I could do this myself, but it would take quite a lot of time... 173 Holds_### folders
I'm hoping someone has already done it.

It must exist at PG Music, but to my knowledge, we users do not have access to it.

Wishlist?

Wishlist... good suggestion, but that could take a lot longer than compiling the list myself...
If I have to do it myself, I will, and I'll certainly share it with the forum.

It would be very helpful to me and to others I'm sure.

Thanks Matt...

A workaround might be to hit New in BB and then enter the chord you want held, with the right Rested instruments assigned, then invoke a RealTrackk on some free track and generate just the hold for Export or Drag 'n Drop to your DAW software.

In the RT picker dialog, there is a column on the far right side labeled Holds. I think those number are the folders containing the hold.

For RD, those are defined in the .txt files found in the specific RD folder. The BIAB manual has the details on this.

I apologize for not mentioning the info in the final column of RealTrack selecting. Kudos as always to Rachael. I had incorrectly assumed from your third post that you knew of this, because without that info, I didn't think this job could be done by a user at all.

The good news is that about one-fifth of the RealTracks do not use holds (or PG Music hasn't provided them yet; they keep updating and improving). The bad news is that a few use more than one.

I also would like to see a numbered list of which holds belong to which RTs. 2546 plays 119 holds ... a banjo sound. Trying to find the right folder is too time consuming without a list ... F

So as mentioned above the holds used are listed in the holds column in the real track picker.
Location
X:\bb\RealTracks\Library\Holds
X:\bb\RealTracks\Direct Input\Library\Holds

A list of what guitar is being played for Holds_1 Holds_2 . .
and what guitar is being played for each real track would help.

Holds are 85bpm

To create a holds list
click the holds column to list the holds in order
in the real track pick choose copy list
save the txt
open excel or open office
open the txt file
import using tab delimiter
delete the rows without holds
delete the columns other than holds
now you have a list the you can search



To change holds used open soloist dialog

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
