So which one are they part of? I thought I had bought all the realtracks sets and I don not have them, so it would be nice to know where they should be. The install info screen for 202 says they are in it !!

Merry Christmas

For what it's worth, double-check that "Show if tempo is out of range" is selected in the Realtrack Picker.

If this is not selected, only those Realtracks in the range of the current BIAB tempo will be shown.

Thanks for reply Noel.

Just wondering if you can see what set the NA come from as they are certainly not anywhere else on my ultra pak, unless they are part of a bonus pak, or something not yet released.

Thanks Axey

Hi Axey,

In a post above, Andrew from PG Music mentions that those bass styles are not part of Set #202. With this in mind, I went and had a look in the \bb\Realtracks folders that corresponded to those RTs.

In every case, what I found inside the folder was a text file indicating that these tracks had been renamed and were no longer using the names/sets that Realtrack Picker assigned to them. (The below image show what's inside the folder \bb\Realtracks\Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Half,Half Sw 110. There are no audio files as one would expect.)

So I went through each of the text files and compiled the following information.

The below pdf summarises what I discovered (right-click and "Save as" will download it). In a nutshell, the Bass tracks are now considered 'normal', 'simple' and 'very simple' rather than 'quarter, quarter', 'half, quarter' and 'half, half'. (It seems as though 'Set 202' was used as an internal grouping by PG Music at a time when '202' was far removed from the set numbers that were available.)

Hope this helps,

Noel what more can I say, this is a first claas piece of detective work taking the time and effort to get to the bottom of the missing realtracks.

I'm more than impressed and feeling a bit guilty for putting you to that trouble.

A happy new year to you, the trouble that you go to help people is amazing for want of a better word to describe it.
