Hi,

in RB when I change the instrument i.e. Acoustic Grand Piano in piano track, if after I go in bass track I view this piano instrument assigned also to bass track.

The same thing happens if I set the bass track, I find the same instrument on the piano track:the tracks instruments.are not independent!

All midi tracks are setted with same instrument!!

in BIAB when I set a track sforzando ask me the chanel. In RB this does not happen.

Where am I wrong?

sforzando only allows one instrument at a time (it's not a multi-instrumental MIDI synth).

That said, I haven't tried to see if it's possible to load multiple, different instances of sforzando. I'll try when I get home tonight.

In the meantime, what you could do is load the Piano and then create a wav file of that track and load that wav into RB (and then mute the piano midi track). After that, use sforzando on the bass.

Regards,
Noel

You should be able to load multiple instances of Sforzando into each of the different available ports, then select a different instrument for each.

Just right click on the track and select the option to load a VST into a specific slot, choose the port, then the Sforzando VST for that port. Each instance will work independently of each other.

See this thread

Accompanied with the image below it should help explain.
sForzando synth plays one sound at time.
But you can load many copies of the sForzando synth at once; each with their own sound.

What you need to know:
Each MIDI track goes to a Port. When you use a default MIDI synth all tracks go to it unless you change this setting.

So assign each track to it's own Port and use another copy of the synth (or even a different synth) on that Port. Problem solved. This is how you use lots of synths in RB.

The image below is of the Right-Click menu of any MIDI track .. it should help figure out how to assign a given synth to a track using the Port

Track-> Port -> synth (either softsynth or hardware)
In the image below I have 16 hardware ports available in my Delta before/above the 16 softsynth ports. The options are there, but you need to set them up for the desired result.
You will likely see your default synth in Port 32 (softsynth 16) on your system.
That's where all MIDI gets assigned when the 'Use Default Synth' box is checked .. but you can change it for each track.

M-Audio Delta 1010 interface.
https://www.ebay.com/p/M-Audio-Delta-1010-LT-sound-card-DELTA-1010-LT-DELTA-1010LT-US41077/77161194


Be advised, in the above listing the seller says it will work in a laptop; not true.
It needs a PCI slot which is getting harder to find lately, so the low prices will likely get lower.

I have a couple different systems using these cards and they just keep working .. through W7 and W8 so far.
Haven't tried them on 10.

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
