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.

A few years ago, PG Music introduced RealTracks - audio tracks that replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). Now with Band-in-a-Box 2014 you have the ability to create your own RealTracks!

To make your own RealTracks, simply record tracks in any DAW, name your UserTracks, and add them to the UserTracks folder in Band-in-a-Box. They are now ready to use, the same as you use other RealTracks! Watch the YouTube Video: UserTracks Tutorial to learn more!
