When I record audio (from Microphone) (PT 2017) I can't hear what I singing through my headphones. I see the vu meter moving and It records fine. I can hear myself inside my head, but is there an option I'm missing to enable me to hear myself through the headphones?

Thx, Bill

It depend on your setup (signal routing).

Can you tell us how you get the mic to the computer?
And how you are listening to it when it comes out of the computer.

This could mean a setting in the audio device, or it could mean enabling advanced settings like Input Monitor .. depending on your use. Hard to say without more info.

rharv, I plug the mic into the mic input on the SB Live mp3 (internal pcb) and headphones are plugged into headphone jack of the SBL.

I have never been able to hear my voice through the headphones (while recording the vocal audio), even with the old PTPA from 2005 Ver. and also with a different sound card (external SB Audigy 2 NX).[i][/i][u][/u]

Pretty sure it's a setting in the SBLive Mixer/Driver combination.
It's been a long time since I used one of those.

Have you tried 'What U Hear' selection in the SBLive?

I'm sure you can do it, but you have to follow the signal path, and in recent years, you also have to check the Windows mixer setting to make sure Windows is using the SBLive as expected also.
Think routing; look at the signal from the mic from start to finish (including the 'recording input' for Windows).

What operating system?

I just found the answer last night. It was in SB mixer setting under advanced controls, There are 2 mixer volumes for " what U hear, mic, aux, line etc. "

The second of these 2 volumes needed mic to be selected. The problem was that you can't tell what is selected until you click on it and choose something else.

Thx Bill

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.
