Band-in-a-Box 2012 Build 350 is available:
http://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#350

This will update your version of Band-in-a-Box to build 350 from any previous Band-in-a-Box 2012 build.

Summary of Changes for Build 350 (April 24, 2012)
  • Improved: ASIO stability and timing with large buffers is improved. MIDI soft-synth timing with large ASIO buffers is much better, although still will remain dependent on the speed of the computer, the nature of the DXi or VSTi synths used, and the quality of the ASIO drivers.

  • Fixed: Vulnerability related to multi-threading, which could explain some of the reported intermittent, un-reproducible crashes with ASIO.

  • Fixed: Song-based RealTracks were sometimes being removed when starting Band-in-a-Box by double-clicking on a song.

  • Fixed: Using a different MIDI style was sometimes wiping out another MIDI track.

  • Added: When picking a custom MIDI style, the stylepicker memo now names the tracks for each instrument.

  • Fixed: Loops were sometimes mono instead of stereo.

  • Added: Band-in-a-Box can now load more types of audio files for loops (unusual .wav formats etc.).

  • Improved: Flash message colors improved (green for messages that you can click on).

  • Fixed: MIDI from a style was surviving sometimes when a loop was set.

  • Fixed: Some mixer drawing issues for custom slider.

  • Improved: Safety code added to prevent plugins crashing program if memory/resources are low.

  • Fixed: Intermittent "lost plugins" issues when a set of plugins has been saved to a song, and then later when the song is reloaded some saved plugins do not get inserted.

  • Fixed: Jukebox crashing intermittently on loading new songs "too soon" after beginning playback, and intermittent timing irregularities.



Updated April 11, 2012

  • Updated: Some 'A-only', 'B-only', and 'Bluesy' RealTracks instruments weren't playing the correct variation.

  • Updated: Some simple bass ST2 files showed as missing, even though the parent 'regular' bass ST2 was present.

  • Updated: StylePicker improvements.

  • Updated: Fixes for minor miscellaneous RealTracks issues reported since Feb 1 2012.


Added Feb 1, 2012

  • Updated: The latest version of Band-in-a-Box Server (Version 2 Build 2939) is now included in the patch. Band-in-a-Box Server is used to connect to the Band-in-a-Box and BB Remote apps for iphone / Android.


Updated Dec 14, 2011

  • Added: AmpliTube .STY files and .SGU demo songs. These are styles we've made that load in specific AmpliTube presets. They can be opened from the AmpliTube category near the bottom of the StylePicker.

  • Added: Loops .STY files and .SGU/.MGU demo songs. These can be opened from the Loops category near the bottom of the StylePicker.

  • Fixed: Occasional 'BluesRockEv^ missing' error.

  • Fixed: Crash when using Band-in-a-Box Server with iPhone/Android apps.

  • Fixed: Some "BB2012 Tutorial" style demos not loading from StylePicker.

  • Improved: Some AmpliTube presets tweaked.

  • Improved: For Non-English versions, RealTracksFolderNamesX.txt implemented to allow fuller names of realtracks in various realtracks list.

  • Improved: Prefs-RealTracks-Verify function sped up, and report no longer reports bt0 file errors (not used anymore)

  • Added: Find and Fix button added to Prefs- RealTracks (it looks for missing st2/xt2 files in parent folder of RealTracks folder, and if it finds them, copies them to your BB folder

  • Improved: Rebuild button in RTPicker now Fixes problems (copying xt2/st2)

  • Fixed: Combo Plugins were not getting written when rendered

  • Fixed: Drum whack at the end

  • Updated: Styles list updated

  • Updated: 2012 Manual

Can you be more specific as to what this is?

Fixed: Drum whack at the end

I'm curious if this fixes the problem of an extra RD "stick on stick" beat heard at the end of a song. It only occurs when using an external synth and MME for audio.

Thx,
R

It's unlikely that this would fix that problem. Let me know if it does though. We haven't been able to dup that problem.

Thanks to your folks for these upgrades.
That is a pressure cooker also to get these out.

Appreciate this part of your product support.

>>> I'm curious if this fixes the problem of an extra RD "stick on stick" beat heard at the end of a song. It only occurs when using an external synth and MME for audio.

Hi Rachael,
You are correct, and we have been able to duplicate that. If (as you say) you are:
(all of these must be true)

- using MME,
- *not* using VST/DXi,
- and *not* using a loop at the end
- Using RealDrums, but NOT using any RealTracks.

then at the very end of the song you hear a brief countin tap from the first bar of leadin.

I guess we never tried that combination in awhile!

We'll fix that. BTW, there's a workaround, select a count in sound of "---- 1234" in Prefs-Count In. You'll just hear a 1 bar countin, but you won't hear that opening tap played briefly at the end.

Looking forward to the fix, and I never thought of that workaround either. Thanks.

Well the real track drum ending whack is gone... Now i find when i drag and drop in daw mode from the combo i get a cymbal crash on the fist beat of the count in...
Anyone else experiencing this. I don't use a count in very often but i need it on this particular tune.

thanks
Ed

You could just rest the drums in that measure. It's a workaround. It might need looking at what happens if you have for count in options.

The other thing that causes that is when you have a part marker right at the first of the song somewhere. Make sure there are no blue or green colours on the cell in chord view.

Will there be another post or build number when the 'non-beta' version is released ?

Mitch, if the past is a guide, No. The beta build turns quietly into the production release after a time. As they say, it's called 'beta' only because it is new, but I have always just installed them without any concern. The program keeps a backup of the older versions, in case you did want to roll back (I've never had to, at least in the last decade).

Any chance of giving us a Real drums file of 'Gene Krupa' style drum solos? I'd love to create a BIAB replica of Sing Sing Sing or Hey Patchuco (from The Mask)and need several 8 bar drum solos with tom toms.
