Thanks S.P

FYI, RealBand does not have this limit, if you want to move a very long song over to there.

The most obvious apparent reason is that 256 is the highest number one can count to using a base 2 8 bit counting system.

I just recall to all BIAB users that the real time duration of a song given in BIAB is erroneous. this has discussed in the BIAB forum some month ago, and PG people are aware of this issue. Waiting for some fix.

Hi!

Using BIAB to do transcriptions like http://djangoreinhardtforbandinabox.shoply.com/ i definitely need more tracks than 256 for jazz solos from the big ones! As for Real Band i think it's a heavy program that's doing fine the job, but I'm still in love with BB.

Thanks S.P.
