Just a short note to remind everyone there has been a Band-in-a-Box UserTracks group since UserTracks were offered as a feature with the release of 2014 Band-in-a-Box.

You do not have to have a Yahoo email address to join. The group is independent of PG Music.

+++ UserTracks Group +++

Did not know of this one, me thinks, so I clicked that link and got:

Oops!
Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content.


And nothing else worked, couldn't join, browse or anything smirk

Your security setting in you browser protected you from a "pop up ad" which wants you to join and download some stuff. Try a different browser and I suspect you will have the joy of clicking on the popup to get to the Yahoo site.

Eddie,

You do have to request to join the group. This action was taken to prevent the group from being flooded with SPAM.

I just tried the link again and it worked fine for me. However, +++ HERE +++ is a fresh link, just in case.

I really do hope you and all users interested in UserTracks will join and start discussions. I started the group so users will have an independent arena to discuss UserTracks. Unfortunately to date there have been numerous users join but very limited discussions.

Fair enuff, thanks for the info and the new link. I'll give it another go, then.

Looking for more easy ways to get more free stuff, no doubt. I'm not in the least bit surprised smirk

p.s. Upon trying your "fresh link" I've just discovered you not only need to "request" joining, it requires you to register to yahoo in the process.
I'm not too keen on obligatory registrations in general, and if the place is as poorly used as you suggest, the incentive is even less.

But well, at least now we all know of the option a bit better (and that fresh link works), so I guess that's still something.

All Yahoo groups require you to register with Yahoo. Just set up a throw-away account, if necessary. But that same account can be used for membership in multiple groups, and when you go to Yahoo Groups logged into that account, all the groups to which you belong will display.

It's been that way for as far back as I can remember (20 years or so).

Thanks Eddie. I thought so too.

It's been awhile since all the group links were posted at the same time in one post, but it has been done before so I wasn't the first to think of 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.
