It could be, though if someone is let down by the product and gets negative responses for venting it may put them off coming back here.
These things do happen I think I've had it with RB, rather than being defensive about PG products we can accept that there are problems and push to get them fixed and make the product better, Constructive Criticism and Venting, if we stay stuck in the past and don't stand up, so to the product will.

I lost the tweeter in a powered speaker - I didn't lose any gigs. I turned up the good one, and compensated (I mix in mono) and the next day brought it in for service. It's still not back because they had to order a new tweeter.

But the gigs go on because I have my old passive speakers and my old QSC power amp.

More to lug but Tuesday's gig went great, no gig today but tomorrow and the weekend is covered.

I agree the original post was a BS troll, but it opened up a nice thread about needing redundant gear for gigging.

You have to be a "The Show Must Go On" performer or get out of the business (and if you don't get yourself out, the customers will do it for you).

A fair point, Jcubed. You haven't been around long enough to remember the utter disruption caused by a troll in the past. Some of us have too-long memories.

MF, yeah I've only been here 5 years but I have been using forums for a whole lot longer than that. And, as it turns out the OP was probably not a troll as Pipeline showed in links to the guys profiles elsewhere. He was just a frustrated BIAB customer. I don't blame him for not coming back to this thread!

Sorry, JJJ. Until he responds, he's a troll. Most of the responses to his plight were helpful, But he never came back to offer any more information/clarification. For all we know, it could have been poor electrical power at the venue, or his computer, or yes, maybe BIAB. But he left it with just the one negative post.
It's been over a month. Only one post on the entire forum, negative content. It's pretty clear to me he just wanted to drop a bomb and run.

So, what is it Mr. Graves? Are you really interested in figuring out what went wrong? Lots of folks here are happy to help you (myself included), and even the ones that called you a troll. Come back and let us know.

I truly think (and know in my own case) that the "You should have done this or that" posts were in the spirit of being helpful so that the same thing wouldn't happen again in the future.

I often post about having redundancy, and I hope it's never misunderstood, because it is always to help my fellow musicians avoid future problems.

Through my life I've welcomed helpful advice from other musicians, I've learned a lot, and the best way to shop my appreciation for their generous help, is to pass down the information to help others.

Troll? Disgruntled customer? I can't say for sure, and it doesn't really matter, does it? I don't think anybody on the BiaB forum is going to think less of BiaB because of that post. And we shared some helpful information.

Why would anyone want to come back to such a nasty thread?

There were plenty of helpful responses after he posted. He didn't bother to come back. Maybe he did and just read. It may have been just a "flaming" post, putting down BIAB, while the fault of losing this gig was clearly his own fault. If you are playing gigs to make money to support your income, you should plan for possible disasters.

What's ridiculous is that this thread even still exists. It should be removed as it proved unproductive from the get go. Now this thread is just causing nothing but arguments among people who normally get along just fine.

The O/P created the account, made complaints about everything except his own stupidity, made one post, and hasn't been back since, not even once.

In fact, from what I could establish, I don't even think he has an account anymore.

We all know that BiaB is not to blame, not even 1%

Maybe it was an 'Ivan' event.

Regardless, we can put this to bed now, I'm fairly certain of that.

#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
