Well, what a mess. Installed 2018, v 504, copied all the stuff from the 2017 (Audiophile) folders, re-run quite a few old installers from bonus packs even from 2015, but still a lot of RTs and most soloists are missing when checking "what add ons do i have". Any similar experiences? I mailed support about this with more details ...- F

Fiddler,

I wonder if the old installers did not work properly with the new 'clean installation' that BIAB 2018 introduced.

There are very few files in \bb these days (less than a hundred on my system).

Regards,
Noel

LoL ........ i am going crazy trying to get to grips what they're all about. Been busy for about 6 hours now to figure this one out, no success, it seems all styles are there, even soloists. 504 seems stable, but yes, there is at least one bug too in this baby. Section text only shows once in the notation - printing window. .... Sometimes wonder what them programmers do at PG; guess it must keep them quite busy, keep track of all those files and what they're for. -F

Fiddler,

Matt Finley has just posted this quote from Peter Gannon regarding the new versus old installation.

It was in the below thread.

User Blog - Recording and Processing Vocals Using RealBand...

Joanne Cooper's latest blog post is a "start to finish" of how she records and processes vocals for her songs using her three "go-to" programs: RealBand, Melodyne, and Nectar from Izotope (with a little help from Band-in-a-Box...)!

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.
