I want to demo some more Realtracks but the song demos won't play on my computer (Windows). I keep getting an error message that says I need Flashplayer 9.0 or greater.

I think I have Flashplayer 14 installed.

I used the "Search" feature to the right and could not find information on this.

Could someone please tell me if this is a common problem and if there is a fix.

By the way, I am loving this BIAB. I am getting deeper into playing music and it has been Godsend!

Welcome to the forums!

I agree... BIAB is brilliant software smile

What browser are you using? That could be the problem. I have Firefox 55.0.3 and the few demos I tried worked fine for me.

Just to make sure that we're working on the same page, I clicked on the "Listen" options for the Realtracks (highlighted on the image below).



Also, with Flash, I've found a few times over the last year or so that it must always be up-to-date to access some websites. I suspect that this is because earlier versions of Flash player had some vulnerabilities that made it susceptible to net nasties.

Flash player is currently up to version 27.

Thanks for the quick responses. I am really looking to buy more reaktracks and not being able to play demos is a bit of a pain.

To make sure I am clear, I was looking at RealTrack Sets, such as #10. You have an option for "Band Demo" and another for "Solo Demo."

Got to run but I will return and reread your replies.

Thanks again

Thank you for your assistance.

Sorry it took so long for me to get it. I had an unfortunate series of events that led to surgery.

Anyway, I appreciate everyone's input and hope to be able to capitalize on the great opportunities this program offers.

I am teaching my kids to play piano and some guitar, and the band-in-a-box program motivates them greatly.

Again, thanks and happy holidays. I plan to check in here more often as I try to increase my limited skills with BIAB!

I have since upgraded my computer to Windows 10 and everything seems to be working fine. I think that is what fixed my problem, at least in part.

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

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.
