I like the video it explains a fair bit. However, it seems I have the oohs and the aahs a bit confused in RealTracks. I load an aah and get ooh. Load an ooh and get an aah.

Hi Tony,

That was indeed a problem with the initial release, but should be fixed with the patch released yesterday:

http://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm

Try installing the build 506 patch and see if that fixes the problem. Let us know!

Ok I'll play this silly game. I can add the oohs and aahs to a new song and they are correct. I even imported the chords from the existing to a new song all is fine. I cannot seem to get them correct in the offending song. I can even delete the RealTracks save the song load the song again re apply the oohs that come back as aahs and visa versa. Not that it matters by playing around I have a combination that suits me better. The oohs are more suptle than the aahs and mixing a bit of both has me getting what I want.

Hi, no I have deleted the offending tracks by setting no real track for the tracks. Played the song and the tracks are gone. Saved the file with the tracks greyed out. Reloaded the song re entered the aahs played the song and they came out as oohs.

I then imported only the chords of the song added the aahs and they were correct. But in the original song they keep coming in wrong. It is as if the song is corrupt rather than the RealTracks.

Not that it really matters it just looks confusing is all.

Corrupted songs are very rare but they can happen. It sounds like you did all the necessary tests.

Tony,

Try opening the "offending" file in RealBand then save the imported file as a SGU file with a new name. You are saving with a new name so the original file is not overwritten.

That is a "trick" user Noel96 gave me one time and it has proven to work more often than not.

Thanks Jim. Yes I have both files. I ended up just playing to see what the results would be. (That is my way of learning)
