My Grundig mini-disc player is just about clapped out and I'm thinking about using my laptop in future to play backing tracks. I can't find much ( any! ) info on creating playlists from my collection of MIDI files. I suppose if I create a folder and number the files in the order I want them to play, they'll be easily enough imported to VSC. However, I tried to move a file in the VSC playlist that I've so far created and was unable to change it's location by dragging it. Do I have to return to the folder I created for my playlist in this case, renumber them there, and reload the lot as a new playlist? I've searched Roland FAQs, searched this forum and searched Roland VSC Help files, all to no avail.

I'm not aware of VSC having a play list, it is a DXi synth that play midi output inside any DAW. Powertracks , Real Band and BiaB all have either Play lists or Juke Box features. Ya might try that.

Right now i am using RB as my playback system, but am thinking of switching over to PT to run the finished product due to it being a tad lighter load on the old laptop, plus it has the ahrmonizer that might be handy in a few songs!

The older VSC43 (nonDXi) has a playlist.

I don't think it is drag 'n drop, though.

A belated thanks for the input folks.
@Robh: If I open VSC it comes up with a playlist (or lists) and allows the saving of playlists. I was looking for a handy way of changing order of play within a previously created playlist, but I don't think there is one!

One of the things you might do is order your files by number, so 1-Charade, 2-Moon River, 3-The Pink Panther, 4-Peter Gunn, 5- Dreamsville... and that should put them in order.

However, when you get over 9, it may go 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, etc.

Put zeros in front of the single digit numbers: 01, 02, 03, etc.

One can also use the shifted number signs to place songs before the numbers in the order that the signs appear on the QWERTY keyboard from left to right: ~!@@#$%^&*()_+

So "!mysong.mid" will be placed in front of ")mysong.mid" etc. and before any songs that start with a numeral. I save those signs for quick moving of songs in a list to the top.

Band-in-a-Box® Version 2017 for Windows Build 464 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows customers can install the latest patch update (Build 464) here: www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#464

Added: The RealTracks Settings dialog now has a choice of low/medium/high for Elastique stretching quality, instead of just high quality on or off (high quality off meant medium).
Fixed: Chord sheet fonts were limited to a maximum size that would not quite fill the cells. This would cause superscript extensions to sit too high above the roots.
Fixed: Elastique stretching items were missing from the RealTracks Settings dialog.
Fixed: If pasting a single line of text into a layer using the layer context menu, nothing would be pasted.
Fixed: If pasting multiple lines of text into a layer, the last line would be skipped.
Fixed: Shift+Arrow keys were not working to highlight regions on the chord sheet.
Fixed: The "Select Hi-Q MIDI Patch Plugin" menu item should be available to the Melody, Soloist, and Thru tracks.
Fixed: The Help button in the MultiDrums dialog did not do anything
Fixed: The media player in the Hi-Q patch dialog did not have a volume control.
Fixed: The number pad keys 0, 1, 2 would trigger looping features are inappropriate times (eg. when in the song memo, or when selecting the chorus ending bar, etc.)
Fixed: The visual metronome would take over the StylePicker window when playing song demo.
Fixed: When running Band-in-a-Box with factory settings the floating mixer would appear in the top left corner of the screen the first time it was opened.
Fixed: When the "auto-resize" is enabled for the floating mixer, stopping playback should only move it back to the maximized position if it was in that position prior to playback.

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac - Toolbar Modes #TipTuesday

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac offers you more control over your toolbars!

With the redesigned GUI in Band-in-a-Box® 2017, there are now 3 modes for the toolbar! To switch between them, use the the Mode Selector buttons (located at the top left of the screen).

The three modes are:
1. Smaller, configurable toolbar with tabbed interface.
There's a [CUSTOM] tab in this mode that lets you select buttons you want to see in the order you want!

2. Taller toolbar with fixed on-screen Mixer, useful for people with hi-res screens.
All your buttons are there!

3. DAW Mode.
This makes a small screen, always on top, useful for drag and drop of files to your favorite DAW.

#TipTuesday Want a faster way to switch between your custom toolbar and the taller toolbar? Just select Cmd-T!
