Summary of changes for Build 454 (since 453) (Dec 16, 2016):

  • Fixed: Problems saving custom toolbar configuration on some systems.
  • Fixed: Opening the Lead Sheet, moveable PianoRoll, or moveable Notation Window would cause the Audio Edit window to close.
  • Improved: Popup menus will open aligned to the button that opens them, instead of at the current mouse position.
  • Fixed: The Freeze and Simple popup menus did not display customized or auto-generated track names.
  • Fixed: The "101 Essential Riffs and Phrases" buttons in the Practice window would not open a song when chosen.
  • Fixed: Turning off MME "Output always on" would not take effect until exiting Band-in-a-Box.
  • Fixed: "C13#11", "C13#5#9#11", and "C13sus#5#9#11" were each list twice in the chord builder.
  • Added: "C13#5#9" and "C13sus#5#9" are new supported chords for Band-in-a-Box.
  • Fixed: Drag and drop from the drums track would not work if the track contained a RealTrack, and "Use VSTi/DXi Synth" is disabled in the MIDI/Audio Drivers Setup dialog.
  • Improved: If attempting to drag and drop onto the drop station, the [WAV], [M4A], and [WMA] quadrants might higlight red if the
  • render cannot be done. A flash message explaining why will be displayed if the mouse is released over the quadrant.
  • Fixed: "Select Hi-Q MIDI Synth Patch" was not an available menu item for the Drums track.
  • Fixed: When choosing "Select Hi-Q MIDI Synth Patch" a warning flash message would be displayed if SampleTank is not installed.
  • Improved: The Hi-Q selection dialog is resizable.
  • Improved: The Hi-Q selection dialog can exclude keywords (anything starting with ! is excluded).
  • Fixed: After done editing text in the Bar Lyrics layer, the Section Text layer, or editing a chord (eg using CTRL+F2), the application would lose focus and not allow chord entry. This might also cause a "ding!" to be heard.
  • Fixed: The width/height of print preview and save to jpg is preserved, and ratio checkbox added.

  • Fixed: A full install with all available Band-in-a-Box content was showing a few Styles/Drums missing in the StylePicker.
  • Fixed: The styles M_CTRYSM.STY and M_CTRYSW.STY were producing error messages related to guitar macros for some customers.
  • Fixed: Style filter to show 2017 styles was showing 2016 styles.
  • Fixed: Any track with RealDrums, other than the Drums track, would be labeled "Loop".
  • Fixed: BeStPlain Chord Symbols font was not using various dedicated chord symbols (eg. C7b9) on the chord sheet.
  • Fixed: BeStPlain Chord Symbols font was using various unwanted dedicated minor chord symbols (eg. Cmi7 instead of C-7) on the chord sheet.
  • Fixed: Clicking on the chord sheet when a popup menu was open could cause undesired cell selection.
  • Fixed: The dedicated [Open] button (mini-mode only) would open a popup menu instead of directly going to the file-open dialog.
  • Fixed: The dedicated [Save As] button (mini-mode only) would open a popup menu instead of directly going to the file-save-as dialog.
  • Fixed: When "Superscript chord extensions" was set to "auto", the entire bar would be superscripted whenever there were chords on consecutive beats, instead of treating each chord individually.
  • Fixed: The New Features button would open the wrong popup menu.
  • Fixed: Using the Options menu to Return To Factory Settings would cause the Custom panel to have no buttons in it.
  • Fixed: If the Custom panel button order is corrupted in anyway, it will be automatically detected and reset to defaults.
  • Fixed: If running the program in any language other than English, and a language patch was never installed, all of the main screen buttons would be blank.
  • Fixed: Sforzando was not automatically added to the plugin list, so loading Hi-Q patches would not work unless the user previously added the .DLL to the list manually.
  • Fixed: Error message removed "Track. Error in style, you need to Set StyleMaker-MISC-Guitar Macros Enable=true".
    Improved: Forced accidental entry and note type entry (normal, invisible, bend, etc.) both now use listboxes, so no pull down is required, and also now has a checkbox for making a bend displayed in notation window as quarter step below the target note.
  • Fixed: Notes at very start of a row in note roll were not visible.
  • Fixed: Wider than normal beat lines in note roll.
  • Updated: 2017 Help file updates.


Summary of changes for Build 452 (since 451) (Dec 2, 2016):

  • Fixed: If running the program in any language other than English, most of the main screen buttons were displaying in English. New buttons, and a few that have been altered will remain in English until official localized patches are ready.
  • Fixed: Using "L" in the chord sheet to loop bars was not working.
  • Fixed: "Separate files for each track" in the drop+ dialog did not work.
  • Fixed: After a drag and drop, the Audio track would appear to be muted even though it was not.
  • Fixed: The playback bar would not show the current bar.
  • Fixed: Clicking on playback bar would not select the current bar.
  • Fixed: The playback bar displayed some messy looking vertical lines.
  • Fixed: The 2017 upgrade manual was sometimes not found.
  • Fixed: The menu item "Help > Newest Features" was not opening the right help page.
  • Fixed: The menu item "Help > Help Topics > Tutorial Using the New Features of Version 2016" was not opening the right help page, and should say "2017".

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 Build 3 Patch Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 users can download a new patch update here!

Summary of changes with Build 3:
Added: Always on MME added (checkbox setting).
Added: Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTI plugins, that support this, is now implemented
Added (build 2): Localization support.
Fixed: a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues.
Fixed: FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed: Improved support for the Vielklang VST instant harmonies plugin.
Fixed: Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).

Fixed: the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed: The time location of time-based VSTi plugins was being continually advanced when RB was stopped. This has been fixed so that the VSTi time location now gets set to PT's current time location when playback is not happening.
Fixed: when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed (build 2): Code 740 error could happen after installation finished when launching program.
