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.

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
