#444765 - 12/12/17 10:29 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] Why has the .WAV Button has changed the way it works

In the past version BIAB 2017 I used to select the save wav button and it would ask the various types I would like to save. I chose a directory and gave the file a name and tell it to save each track as a .wav. It named each files by Song Name_render_RealTrack_instrument. Now it seems to store the Rendered file by name (mix as per BIAB) then store each individual track as temp_wav_render_RealTrack_instrument. This had me fooled a bit as I could not find the individual tracks.

I guess I will have to create a folder for each song now?

Any ideas

Tony

I'm not a fan of this behavior either and hope there is a way to get back to having the song name in the individually rendered tracks. I'm currently working on a project with 11 songs and I try to keep everything organized in a single project folder and it was much easier when all the rendered files let you know what song they belonged to. Also have to rename them to import into my DAW for combining with other instruments we are recording. a real workflow killer. Someone please help if you know how to resolve this.

Edit: One more thing. It overwrites the individual tracks from the previously rendered tune with no warning.

I found I just had to create a folder for the song and put the files in there. In a sense it is a better way to go. Initially however I was fooled.

Tony - Yeah I'm doing that as a work around but we have a home studio with multiple clients and as we are working out tunes/tracks (ultimately replaced with real players) we typically organized by client folder. This now creates another step in an already defined workflow and the no warning of an overwrite is really dangerous.

I've opened a support ticket with PG Music. I would really like to see this where the song name is preserved in the individually rendered tracks.

Individual folders has a flaw as well. Do you create different versions of a tune as you're working through it? For example, trying different chords in the chorus or bridge? I do this a lot and save as song_name version#. Now I'll have to create folders for each different version number or track renders will overwrite each other.

May need to roll back to 2017.

I miss the old way of saving of individual files and selectable format very much. Besides, i take it that this is the new version, but it has a bug. Selecting "one file per track" only exports one track OK (first, bass?), and the rest of the tracks has just a few bytes; a time consuming workaround is load the song in Realband, and export from there ...

This issue (saving of individual track wave files) is fixed in the Build 507 update which will be available later today.

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.
