I don't know either. i couldn't find a "RT picker icon." I assumed he was talking about the Real Track assign track window which I told him in my reply that I couldn't find an icon like that and I was making my "changes" based on the assumption he was talking about the RT window. If he says there is an "RT picker icon" in his reply, I'll let you know.

Open BIAB and hit the saxaphone icon that brings up the RT picker were you'll do the rebuild.

Hello Beagle,

Yes it should work...

First, make sure that when you installed your new RealTracks, you selected E:\bb for your Band-in-a-Box folder. You could run one of the installs again and you should find that it automatically chooses the E:\bb folder for your "Band-in-a-Box folder". You could also look in your E:\bb folder and see that you have lots of files with mid-2009 dates.

Next, make sure that you have selected E:\bb as your Band-in-a-Box folder in RealBand (Opt. | Preferences | Song Generation | Paths for BBW...).

It should work now. If not, then download and install the RealTracks 1-66 update patch from here:
http://www.pgmusic.com/support_windows_realdrums.htm#RealTracks01-66

If it *still* doesn't work, then could you open the RealTracks Picker window in Band-in-a-Box, select the "Show styles that are N/A" checkbox, sort the instruments by "#", and let us know what the highest number listed is. And in RealBand - what is the higher number listed there (to open the "RealTracks Picker" in RealBand, right-click on a track and click on "Select and Generate RealTracks".)

Andrew, thank you for your help. I am beginning to believe that I must have purchased the wrong thing and did not get any new instruments with this purchase.

first of all, tho, none of the files in my e:\bb\RealTracks folders have mid-2009 dates - the latest ones are November 2008.

I have checked the paths for realband and BIAB again, those are correct in both programs.

I have downloaded the realtracks 1-66 update patch and installed it.

I have checked the "show styles that are N/A

I have sorted the instruments in the list. BOTH BIAB and RB have the same list. the #'s are 361-436 all inclusive.

Kent from support sent me an email and told me to do the following:
Quote:

Sometimes, new add-ons won't show up until the Style List has been re-built... Please click your Style button in Band-in-a-Box then hit the Re-Build button.



I have done that.

Quote:

Once this is done, please go to Opt - What Add-ons Do I Have? This window will tell you exactly what you've installed. Which RealTracks and RealDrums sets are listed as installed?



here is the list of what is installed:
RealTracks sets in E:\bb\RealTracks\ : 1- RealTracks 1, 2- Country Ballad, 3- Swingin’ Country, 4- Modern Country, 5- Rockin’ Guitar, 6- All Metal!, 7- Jazz Bass & Rock Sax, 8- Country Folk, 9- Country Electric Guitar, 10- All Blues (Shuffle), 11- All Bluegrass (Rhythm), 12- All Bluegrass (Solos), 20- Dual Rock Guitars, 21- Clean Strat Rock, 22- Funk & Pop Bass, 23- Pop Acoustic Guitar, 24- Pop Swing 8ths Guitar, 25- Pop Swing 8ths Bass 1, 26- Pop Swing 8ths Bass 2, 27- "Dreamy" Pop Guitar, 30- Blues (Slow Swing), 31- Blues (Slow Even 8ths), 32- Blues (Fast Even 8ths)
RealDrums sets in E:\bb\Drums\ : 1- Rock and Jazz, 2- Waltzes, Country, and More, 3- Fusion, Hip-Hop, and More, 4- Pop, Rock, and More, 5- Latin, 6- Nashville Classic, 7- Nashville Swing, 8- Lite Pop, 9- Ethnic and Country, 10- Bossa and Jazz, 11- About Time, 12- Salsa Clasica, 13- Salsa Moderna, 14- Techno 1: Progressive, 15- Techno 2: Party, 16- Urban Pop, 17- Terry Clarke Modern Jazz, 18- Terry Clarke Classic Jazz & Bossa, 19- Terry Clarke Trading Fours, 20- LA Pop Jazz

none of this has changed my list. That is why I am thinking now that I may have purchased the wrong set of realtracks. I have the 2008.5 "SuperPak" - the SuperPak is no longer an option in 2009.5, but I do specifically remember that is what I purchased and I had listed it in my signature. I am starting to believe now that the SuperPak already had the 20-27 and 30-32 Real Tracks sets included with it and that is why I cannot see any new tracks in my list.

I would like for someone at PG Music to confirm that the 2008 SuperPak did indeed come with those real tracks, and if so, I would like to talk to someone in customer service about refunding my money, or giving me other real packs in exchange.

I will also be sending this same information to Kent via email and will show him this thread.

thanks for everyone's help - with PG Music's confirmation, I believe this snafu was my fault.

I see - yes with your upgrade last year + previous SuperPK you would have had most of those - I suggest that you exchange that for Volume 2, which are the new RealTracks.

Call PGMusic Sales, they'll likely be able to straighten it out and make you a happy camper, as they should have records of what you've bought.

They good folks up there, man. Not like other firms.

Ok Kent at tech support confirmed that the above situation is not the case. Superpak came with real tracks 1-12 and the rock #1 real pack set comes with 4, 5, 6, 10, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 31, 32 (so the only overlap I would have had from purchasing superpak 2008 and rock #1 real pack would be 4-6 & 10). Also, I can SEE there are folders in the e:\bb\realtracks folder with names which I cannot access from the Real Tracks picker window. (the StoneZ one referenced above being one of them).

in BIAB 2008 there is no option to show real tracks that aren't available for a particular tempo. so I changed the tempo to several different settings and still could not get any of the other real tracks to show up.

I reset BIAB to factory settings which changed the default location of real tracks back to c:\bb\realtracks. opened the real tracks picker and of course there was nothing there to choose from since I don't have any real tracks in that location. I then changed the location back to e:\ and it still doesn't see those particular tracks.

so then I copied all of the realtracks and real drums over to the default location c:\bb\ and then reset to factory settings again. still no go. it still is not picking up all of the real tracks 1-39. It does show them in the "what add-ons do I have", but they're not available for me to select.

I'm still working with Kent at customer service but I thought I'd report this to anyone else who might run across this same situation.

that's a good possibily Sam. but there's no "rebuild" button for real tracks- just for real drums in BIAB 2008.

I hope Kent can solve this problem for me!

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
