Good Day
Is there a way to addin the Ooh and Aah RealTracks in RB 2018 (4). I cannot seem to locate them using "Generate...."? I may be missing something obvious?
Thank you

In Generate RealTrack section, scroll to bottom and look for Vocals .. they should be there.
If not, try re-installing the RT set 278, or rebuilding the Styles list.

The styles list is different than the RT list, but it affects the RTs that Realband can see. (RT's are included in Styles).


Make your sound your own!

Roy, here's what I had to do to get the Ooh and Aah RealTracks in RB 2018 (4).

When I initially searched for the Ooh and Aah RealTracks in RB 2018 (4), Search for the Oohlala Style wasn't found. All of the BGV RT's showed as **NA** in RB StylePicker even though they showed normally in the BIAB StylePicker.

I did a complete rebuild of the BIAB StylePicker and although the BGV styles were searchable and appeared ok, the rebuild found 29 additional styles although my total number of styles did not increase but stayed the same total as before the rebuild (6094).

Then I opened RB and did a complete rebuild of the RB StylePicker. The rebuild produced the same results in the RB StylePicker, adding 29 files but with no difference in the total number of styles.

I was able to search, load and generate a song using the Oohlala style and using the 2975 RT after taking these steps.

You may also need to rebuild your RB StylePicker. I see Rharv posted the same as I was composing my comment.

Thank you rharv - problem solved. I loaded an sgu file into the new RB2018 without going to the stylepicker. Just opening the stylpicker triggered the style and RealTrack rebuild (or the rebuild button also works)
All styles now visible.

Thnaks to Charlie as well!

Yup, same here. First time I launched the style picker in both BIAB and RB for the first time (2018) it re-populated the list.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
