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 2014 for Windows - Swedish Update!

Band-in-a-Box 2014 Svensk manual för Windows finns nu för nedladdning.
Download...

Det finns några nya spännande funktioner i Band-in-a-Box 2014. Vi har gjort om GUI, snyggare och med bättre känsla, och många nya tidssparande funktioner tillagda. Nya Verktygsknappar, Sång/Stil områden, on-screen mixer, omgjort ackordblad med handskrivna "verkligt" utseende på ackordfonter med mera. Du kan nu skapa egna RealTracks – vi kallar dessa Användarspår – och du kan använda dem som vanliga RealTracks. Spela in dig (i en DAW), tillsammans med några BB sånger, lägg dem i mappen Användarspår, och du är klar! Det finns en bekväm Snabblyssning av stilar, RealTracks, och RealDrums så att du snabbt kan lyssna på dem för att välja ut de bästa till din sång. Loopar stöder nu Acidized Loops, så att tempo/ackordgrundton nu är automatisk. Stöd för FretLight® gitarr har lagts till. Du kan nu höra Band-in-a-Box sjunga, med inbyggt stöd tillagd för den populära online vokalsynten "Sinsy." En Legato Stråkar funktion optimerar automatiskt MIDI stråkstämmor för att undvika att spela om samma toner. Allt kan bli starkare – en ny Master Volym låter dig höja volymen i alla sånger med en enda inställning.

Video - Simple RealTracks

Most RealTracks in Band-in-a-Box have the option to play in simple mode, which means less embellishment, alteration, more consistent rhythm, and less fills. Learn how easy it is to use this feature here.
