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.

Boz/Sax, your post belongs in the other forum, Styles Wishlist. It will get the attention of PG Music there.

Good question, Steve. To my knowledge, this was not addressed.

For RealTracks updates, there is always a separate patch for the audiophile version, often supplied a day or two later. This BIAB update says it "updates some RealTracks" but did not specify if audiophile users need a separate version. As there was no separate patch, I concluded the answer must be No, and installed it on my audiophile system back in mid-December.

EDIT: I just searched the forum and found no answer, so I have written to PG Music about this.

OK, PG Music has confirmed that installing Build #349 for BIAB should be fine for audiophile users. Also make sure you have the update for RealTrack #146 that was released shortly after.

My favorite soundfont player SFZ+ is now working. Thanks for this update, PGMusic! The general midi soundfont I use is SGM-V2.01.sf2 and it covers all midi parts nicely. Before this update, SFZ+ was crashing BIAB almost every time.

#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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
