On importing a track into ACW, I get a note that states "Unanticipated host error" with a tick button below it that says 'OK@. There is no option but to click OK. The track then finishes loading, tempo and bars and beats are worked out BUT the 'Play' button is kind of greyed out and there is no response if you click on it

What kind of track?
How do you import it into ACW?
RB or BiaB?

Also, does the problem exist with other audio files? (BTW, what version of BIAB do you have?)

Sorry, I had a feeling I might not have given enough detail. Latest version fully updated of BIAB 2012 (349) and I get the file (either mp3 or wav) by opening RB then under <File> selecting <Launch Audio Chord Wizard...>

Hi Sam. So, you solved your 'no sound' problem earlier today?

Now I seem to have found the solution to this and my other sound problem by changing from ASIO to MME. But why should this solve it?

its the dreaded ASIO gremlins. They get everybody at one time or another.


my theory is that ASIO stands for

Shucks (or some other similar word)
It's

whereas MME stands for

Music!!
Eeeeyahoooo!


or not. Maybe I dreamed it.
(Seems to work that way for a lot of people though...)

"Now I seem to have found the solution to this and my other sound problem by changing from ASIO to MME. But why should this solve it? "

incorrect, corrupt, or incompatible ASIO driver .. or just wrong ASIO driver chosen.
At this point, If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Yes.

There is NO difference in the sound quality.

Both ASIO and MME/WDM create the same kind of PCM Audio .wav files.

Sam, the only reason to use ASIO is if you're playing/recording the sounds of a software midi synth in real time as you're listening to other tracks. ASIO reduces the latency (delay) you hear using MME. A hardware external synth has no latency. Unless you have a midi guitar or you're playing a midi keyboard through your PC and using a software synth, no need for ASIO.

Here's the difference in a nutshell (as seen by rharv)

When you use ASIO, the idea is to play a keyboard and have the MIDI from a keyboard come into the computer and generate a softsynth. Or to record audio and use the realtime effects on the input. Example: sing into a mic and hear the reverb from a DXi or VST effect in real time.

If you don't use those features you don't need ASIO. You may want to, and on some systems these drivers actually work better, but this helps determine the need.

The reason: when the MIDI comes in (or the audio) the computer is tasked with creating a sound right away. The sooner the better! So ASIO runs in the system with much lower latency (delay) because it makes itself a priority. By doing this it adds stress to a system. Some systems and drivers are fine with this, some not so much.

MME, on the other hand, doesn't respond as quickly. This is because the audio buffer it uses is much larger, so it doesn't tax the system so much. It still creates the same sound, but just does it with less stress on the machine and a bigger buffer.

This buffer comes into play in many ways, but most are not needed by many users except in the above two examples.
Some others would include:
Response to a mixer interface (including the program mixer)
Milliseconds of time between hitting play and the file starting (buffer load)

Things that require immediate response.
Otherwise, they are indistinguishable in the end.

Have you taken a look at the updated Chord Chart with Band-in-a-Box 2016? It's been enhanced with new look, feel and customization! Watch the video: www.pgmusic.com/?vid=iKUE4vSfISc&t=1324

A list of these updates:
-All layers can be customized with font and color.
-Now you see the chord where you are typing it. Previously, chords wouldn’t appear until you hit the Enter key, and sometimes wouldn’t appear at all if you made a typo.
-Colors for all elements on the Chord Sheet can be customized.
-Mouse-over indication shows which bar, cell, or part marker you are currently hovering your mouse over.
-You can now select a region of bars by just using the keyboard.
-There is now a Superscript option (separate settings for the chords and the Additional Chord Display layer).
-The number of columns can be customized.
-The "Extra space between columns (pixels)" option allows you to choose a border thickness between columns.
-The "New line for every section" option previously required that each section was at least 2 bars long, but now there is a "minimum section" setting.
-The "Show bar lines" option displays a bar line next to each bar number.
-The "Show bar numbers" option lets you choose how often bar numbers should display: never, always, only at part markers, or only at new rows.
-The "Use substyle colors for bar #s, etc." option controls the color of the optional bar lines, bar numbers, and section letters.
-The "Gray out chords beyond time signature" setting grays out chords that won't play in the song.
-The "Display ‘2’ as ‘sus2’" and "Display ‘sus’ as ‘sus4’" settings will show suspended chords more explicitly: ‘sus’ implies ‘sus4,’ and ‘2’ implies ‘sus2,’ but you might want to see the full extension name.
-All of the settings and colors can be saved and loaded as a .csc file.
