I'm just starting on real band, so please let me know if I'm missing something....

It doesn't sound like the instruments are playing the correct notes on a very simple progression.

The chords are Ab Db, Ab Db, Ab Db (2 bars each)... etc. But on the third Ab all of the instruments sound like they're still playing over Db. I soloed the bass to confirm, and it is still playing the Db root. I even started a new song and put in the same progression and had the same issue.

Is this a common glitch in Real band? I didn't have the same issue when I was making the same song in BIAB. Any suggestions on a fix?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

Have you tried regenerating the track to see if that fixes it?

You might already be aware of this but just in case you are not.....

In Realband if chords are changed, it's necessary to regenerate the tracks because regeneration does not happen automatically (like in BIAB). Always keep in mind that no changes are implemented until tracks are regenerated.

It's possible to regenerate tracks individually or in bulk.

From what you've written above, it sounds like you need to regenerate the bass track. To do this, click on the track and press CTRL+A to select the track. Now click on the "Generate" icon on the menu bar and select the appropriate option.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel, I have found even in BIAB changes are not always picked up but work after a regeneration. Or is it my imagination?

Hi Tony,

That's correct. Not all changes instigate regeneration.

The thing to keep in mind is that BIAB generates the backing and, once that's done, it plays. Any time a change is made, nothing is implemented until (re)generation.

Regards,
Noel

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
