Hello.

I own BB2016 ultraplus (all realtracks 1-253) and made BB2017 pluspak upgrade (including 254-277). Also I have in Biab xtra-styles 1-4.
Now the problem is missing RT components, about 100. Some in list:
-----------------------
N/A RT2665: Bass, Electric, RockNRollBritSwingA-B Sw 140 , Doug Elliott
N/A RT2666: Pedal Steel, Rhythm LushChordsSlow Ev 075 , Eddy Dunlap
N/A RT2668: Pedal Steel, Background WestCoastBallad Ev 065 , Eddy Dunlap
N/A RT2670: Pedal Steel, Background HippieTrainEddy Ev 110 , Eddy Dunlap
N/A RT2679: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm ModernPop16thsLowZane Ev16 090 , Zane Carney
N/A RT2681: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Pop8thsZaneLow Ev 120 , Zane Carney
N/A RT2683: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopRockWaltzZaneHigh Sw 120 , Zane Carney
N/A RT2686: Guitar, Electric, Soloist BluesSlow12-8BrentSimple Sw 065 , Brent Mason
N/A RT2690: Guitar, Electric, Soloist Slow16thsPopBrentSimple Ev16 075 , Brent Mason
N/A RT2692: Organ, Rhythm ModernPopSlowMike Ev 075 , Mike Rojas
...
----------------

In which RT package can I find those missing compinents and is there any clever way figure out answer to my problem.
Everything in RT tracks is ok until pluspak2017 upgrade. After that in almost every RT or xtra-pak contains missing components.

What have I missing in upgrade process ?

...Lasse...

The ones you listed are in the PlusPAK, so they might be installed to a different location than the rest of the RealTracks in your 2016 Ultra. Are you using a custom folder for your RealTracks? (Check in the RealTracks Preferences dialog). If so, you could move the /Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks folder contents to the custom location.

Hi.

I noticed that there was two "Direct Input" folders in filestructure. After that I studiet difference between old and new realtracks pkg-packages.
1-253 put files into "/Application/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks/Direct Input" folder (old) .
254-277 put files into "/Application/Band-in-a-Box/Direct" (new).
It looks like copy-script in packages have failure.

Then I copied files from "new" folder to "old" folder, made some music that uses missing RT-component.
I heard the missing sound but after rebuilding stylepicker it shows still that RT-component is missing. Somehow RT-component database is corrupted and I can't correct it.

What next?

...Lasse...

here is a quick screen shot i made of
which RT package you can find just some of those missing components

of course if you need to know the others just let me know




perhaps re-installing the PlusPAK ( s ) may be the answer

I don't know why that would be, but the Direct Input folder contains the Direct Input unamped versions of some (mainly electric guitar and bass) RealTracks. All RealTracks folders should also be in Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks. Try doing a search for this folder "Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopRockWaltzZaneHigh Sw 120" on your Mac HD, to see if it is anywhere. (that's just one of the ones you mentioned as being n/a. Also, if you are installing from a downloaded disk image, trying opening the RealTracks Packages folder and installing the packages individually, and see if that tells you anything...

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.
