Hello all.


I am trying to compose a song, and keep running into a problem. I write the intro in one style, then try to use F5 to use another style for the verse, but after selecting another style, I get the following error message in a yellow box at the top right of the screen:

"Playback generation is already in progress. Load another song if this message persists."


What am I doing wrong?


Thanks.

You make the intro the main style and then click on the bar you want it to change at and F5 to change the chorus's style . Works for me , hope this might help .

That's what I'm doing, then I get the error message.

Works OK here as well.
Return to factory settings.

I did that as well. What I have is an intro consisting of just a piano track, then I'm trying to change the following bars to another style. It recomposes the entire song with the changed style.

Sounds like you're hitting the F5 after you hit the play button. Use your chord sheet and place the cursor in the measure where you want to change styles, then hit F5.

That's what I have been doing. I tried it again, and it worked. It starts the song at the beginning, and the styles change at the correct measures now. Is there a way to just start composing from the changed measure without recomposing the previous bars?


Thanks.

No, and you would likely not want to. BIAB needs to see the whole chord progression to make some sense of it when it generates. You should try RealBand.

A possible workaround in BIAB would be to leave a long rest in a track, freeze it, and then work with another track to 'fill-in' the missing part until you get what you like. To my knowledge, though, it could not all be done on one track.

Thanks Matt. Do you have any idea why I am getting that error message? Have you ever seen it before?

No, I have not seen that message in normal operation. I think I did see it once as suggested above, by accidentally pressing F5 after clicking on Play, but that was user error (mine).

By the way, I edited my prior message with a few other clarifications; take another look.

Thanks. I am using RB, but mostly just to add instruments to the BIAB tracks, then exporting the WAV's into Sonar.. Aside from that, I haven't done any composing in RB. Is it easier?


I have only just begun to scratch the surface of these programs.

You don't have this right. You don't use RB to add anything to BIAB. The RTs & RDs live in BIAB folders.You can do a song in BIAB & then open it in RB to add more but not the other way around.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. That is what I am doing; originating the song in BIAB, then opening it in RB to add instruments.

Different problem entirely here. This is not the yellow warning from BIAB you referred to earlier.

Try Opt., Return to Factory Settings. and if that doesn't help, Reboot the PC.

If that doesn't help, please describe your system: OS, BIAB version, MIDI output choices, and the steps you took that led to this error. Is the error always repeatable?

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
