hello
is it possible to change the style of an individual real track at a specific bar without changing the style for the whole length of the track or the whole song.

i just want to change any track at any bar for any duration.
thank you.

I assume by posting here you have Windows version of BIAB. That being the case, the answer is yes but it is much easier to do in RB than BIAB.

You can easily change a style throughout a song but that changes all the instruments.
So, I would suggest the following. Save your project with the main style of your song.
Open Stylepicker and select the alternate style you wish to use.

This alternate style must contain the RealTrack instrument you are wanting to singularly change styles.

Generate the song using the alternate style. Save the RealTrack instrument as a performance track.

Return to the original style of your song and import the saved performance track onto a blank track.

Use F5 to mute/unmute between the two RealTrack instruments throughout the song alternating styles of the same instrument.

There may be a simpler way but as I said, I would normally do this type of thing in RB. If there is a simpler way, another forum member will chime in. Hope this helps.

Charlie

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
