BIAB 2017
Hi,
the biab mixer seems to me poor of options and possibility of controls. If I adjust the volume of a track I see that the volume of the others changes too. They are not independent.
After I created the song with my midi and audio tracks, I would like to mix tracks, adjust tones and volumes. Maybe I'll have to export the created tracks and import them into another program.
What can I do?

Track volumes in the mixer are independent. It sounds like you've set something that's overriding these.

Perhaps, have you been using bar settings to set specific volumes at different locations in the song? These settings will override the mixer volumes.

No I did not do anything. I noticed that while I varying the volume of a track by moving the slider I feel that other tracks are affected .... for example, if the bass volume is low, I feel that the drum track gets up by itself ... even the trebles of the drum become more obvious.
Maybe it's just my feeling.

For mixing in BIAB, I view the volume controls in the mixer to be a master volume reference rather than volume controls. 90 is a relative level used by the program and mixer volume changes are percentage changes referenced to the 90 standard rather than just a gain change. When you render a mix, the volume and panning controls cannot be used in real time to alter volume and panning so they have to be set prior to a render and are static throughout the render. In order mix during a render, another process is necessary.

I automate my mix and render using bar settings. Gain changes and fades can be done at each bar. An example where I would do a gain change is at a solo break where I may increase the gain of my soloist while reducing the gain of other instruments so the soloist would be featured without interference. I would then lower the soloist and bring up the other instruments at the bar where the solo ends.

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.
