I've been following this thread with interest...

I'm not on the newest BIAB/RB where folks are using the new SFZ content (I'm way back on 2015). So, I just assumed this was already shipping, so ignore if this is obsolete....

I've always liked the sound of Oliver Gannon's electric guitar, for example on "RT1086: Guitar, Electric, Soloist JazzSwing Sw 110"

If there were an SFZ derived from the notes played in this RealTrack, that would be great! Pop an SFZ MIDI track in, go into Notation window, make up your own breaks using Oliver's tone and "Bob's your uncle!"

There's probably tons of existing BIAB WAV material that would be great source material for a project like that, on all kinds of solo instruments.

Again, I just assumed that PG Music was shipping this content now. Is that not the case?

Yes, u r right in that Chris. It came in 2017, Included with 31 soundfonts, all made from RT, if I am not wrong, or stil in La-La-Land. Time for u to upgrade? wink

I have not used all yet, but the one I have used, sounds pretty close to RT...

Yes, that is a possibility, but, as I read on another website; "In order to make a soundfont you have to understand the principles of sound synthesis, and a fair bit about how the physics of a soundwave work. You will also need to be familiar with recording techniques."
So, for me, not having that, I would prefer if PG-Music offer more of it.. But I guess they will do, little by little? Perhaps in package, like the RT? There is also another free program that some find better then Viena, http://polyphone-soundfonts.com/judownload/0_1502371177_e3tLlO/Polyphone_v1.8_win64.exe
Anyone tried it?

You can use Polyphone to create an SF2 GM set from the Band-in-a-Box Sounds SFZs.

http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=411193

http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=408973

SFZ you can use Keyswitches for Bends, slides etc.. but you can't do that with SF2.

If you use VSTSynthFont (1.096 / 2.096) - VST instrument as the default, that will load any sf2/gig GM or load a different SF2 GM for each track giving you more control over the sound as it's hard to find an SF2 GM that is perfect.

He is exactly right. The .SFZ is an old format for loading virtual instrument to in a virtual rack. In fact you could just upload your own VST into BIAB and have it play inside it.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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.
