I don't think I need to elaborate or 'make my case' on this one.

Mac 2015 should have it as Win 2015 does.

Nope, and that pic is from your Realtracks list anyway. I am talking about the need for such a thing for USERTRACKS.

And now that I look at this closer, we don't even have this for our Realtracks!

Yes, this feature is present on the Windows version 2015, and we expect it will be present on Mac BB 2015 too.

Coming straight from the top like that, I have to say this is very reassuring, thank you smile

It's about high time the Mac version gets properly and completely caught up with its senior PC counterpart.

Actually, your 'bad' did the discussion a favour by pointing out that we're also missing an audition interface on the "Quick pick" Realtrack menu crazy

So the Mac department has even more catching up to do that I was aware of! smirk

It works both ways with Mac & Win, before the Mac versions we use to get more Updates & Fixes and a new version mid year as well as the end of the year, but now since the Mac release we don't get that. Once the Win version is released a few fixes are done but then it's straight on to the Mac version.

I think it's interesting to see how something you may no longer get versus something we never had somehow translates into "works both ways" in the minds of the privileged majority. I say interesting, since being already a 'member' of a socially defined minority in my daily life, I can't really say I found this line of logic all that surprising wink
Anyway, I certainly didn't intend this thread to turn into a philosophical "minority v. majority" debate, and if it makes you feel better, you're quite welcome to simply write me off as "the loud minority syndrome" grin

Just keep this in in mind: I'm not asking for anything more for us than what you have already got.

I have the Mac version AND I have the Windows version.
It is a trade off, for me to have the Mac version I now get less Windows. As I said in another post:
"they don't seem to have the time, they might only have one programer that has to do it all Biab, RealBand, Biab Mac, Power Tracks Pro Audio. . . and he probably gets stressed out with the pressure."
I go to do something on the Mac but I can't because it don't have the same feature as on Win, then I can't do something back on Win because it's not fixed. It works both ways.

Don't you see, those things you're not getting on Win are also not on Mac - but not the other way round! The Mac version is more or less just as buggy as Win overall, and if something is "not fixed" on Win it most certainly isn't on the Mac either.

So drop that "both ways" line already, thank you. Your elaboration just now was actually doing quite well there until you reverted back to that part.

Hey it works both ways for me but not for you because you don't have Win only Mac. This is NOT an attack ! win version has been here since 1845 they only started development on the Mac version a few years ago so they can't be identical over night ok. As I said before if it is too stressful use Parallels or boot camp. It is not the Old Mac vs Win#$% get over that, I have them both that is not an issue to me, I even use Linux. Loosen up man.

Right, there comes yet another - I'm inclined to say modification, but let's go with elaboration - almost to the point of now being a whole new statement from the original.

Nor did I ever say it was, it just reeked (have to make that past tense now, I s'pose) of that condescending "we're both on the same boat" vibe (it's that damn 'both'!). So maybe it's just poorly chosen words initially that set me off, I don't know.

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.
