I am looking for complete training videos for using BIAB for the Mac. Are there any videos which can be purchased - either from PGmusic or a third party?

Thanks -

Considering the nature of the interface training videos for BIAB would seem to be a very obvious idea. Do they exist or are they in production?

There are tutorials on the site and which come with the program. Have you investigated all of those?

Check out this new BIAB Wiki. There may not be any videos there yet, but there will be. The page is intended as a central repository for all useful information on using the program.

In the meantime, go to youtube to see what's available. There are some videos done by PG Music, others made by users.

If you're new, those should keep you busy for a while. *g*

Um, "for the Mac" folks.

I don't think that means for me, I think that means for the MACINTOSH version...

I just talked to PG Music on the phone and they are unaware of video tutorials for the Mac. Might I suggest that a tutorial expressly for Macintosh walking us thru the steps and details in dealing with BIAB would be a BIG help.

I have the 2010 Ultra Pak and installed to my C: Drive.
I searched and Windows didn't find any WMV videos in my BiaB folders.

In the PGMusic\Programs folder of your USB drive you should have two .exe installer files, "BB Video Tutorial PAK Vol1.exe" and "BB Video Tutorial PAK Vol2.exe"

Of course, you have to run those installers to install the actual video sets on your computer. There is also an offering to install a special codec that is needed to view them, if you aren't sure if you already have that TSCC or not, just say Yes and let it install it anyway, it would just overwrite the existing one if you already have it.

Thanks Mac. Found it.

Yup, I remember those.

They're from around BiaB Version 2, or something.

I'm sure the basic principles are the same but I'd think an update is in order.

Mine has some new ones added to the beginning of it, including an overview of BB2010.

I think they've been updated.

Make no assumptions, install and take a look first.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 Build 3 Patch Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 users can download a new patch update here!

Summary of changes with Build 3:
Added: Always on MME added (checkbox setting).
Added: Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTI plugins, that support this, is now implemented
Added (build 2): Localization support.
Fixed: a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues.
Fixed: FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed: Improved support for the Vielklang VST instant harmonies plugin.
Fixed: Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).
Fixed: Saving to XML would result in the timing being wrong, if the song's PPQ was not 120.
Fixed: the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed: The time location of time-based VSTi plugins was being continually advanced when RB was stopped. This has been fixed so that the VSTi time location now gets set to PT's current time location when playback is not happening.
Fixed: when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed (build 2): Code 740 error could happen after installation finished when launching program.
Fixed (build 2): Installer didn't show destination directory if PT was already installed.
