Liebe Foristen,

ich habe jetzt mal eine ganz banale Frage. Sowohl bei Version 2017 als auch bei Version 2018 werden die MIDI Sounds nicht mehr über den Lautsprecher wiedergegeben. Ich kann die real Band aufrufen und einbauen, die funktionieren; aber wenn ich einen Style mit MIDI Sounds meinen Stücken unterlege, kommt nur gähnende Stille. Das ist besonders merkwürdig deshalb, weil die Leuchtbalken der einzelnen Instrumente im Mixer angezeigt werden und ausschlagen. Trotzdem kommt kein Ton.

Wer kann mir helfen?

Hallo Saxharri,
das Audio-Routing von Band in a Box ist an sich logisch, aber nicht ganz trivial zu verstehen. Die MIDI-Ausgabe funktioniert, allerdings natürlich nur, wenn du damit einen MIDI-Synthesizer ansteuerst. Das kann sein ein Softsynthie wie der Microsoft GS Wavetable oder auch ein beliebiger MIDI-Softsynthie wie etwa Winlive. Du kannst die Midi-Signale auch auf einen Hardware-Synthie ausleiten.
MIDI hat den Vorteil, dass zumindest die ersten 128 Kanäle auch mit bestimmten Instruemnten vorbelegt sind, Band in a Box also weiß, welchen MIDI-Kanal er mit welcher Spur ansteuern soll, damit ein bestimmtes INsturment erklingt. Das erspart dir das zuweisen von Instrumentn zu bestimmten Kanälen.
Als alternatives Soundmodell kann Band in a Box statt MIDI aber auch Soundsampleplayern über DXi oder VSTI ansteuern. Dies sind beides Softwareschnittstellen, bei denen aber anders als bei MIDI die "Spuren" nicht schon standardmäßig bestimmten Instrumenten zugeordnet sind. Das musst du dort per Hand machen, aber für den mit Band in a Box jetzt mitgelieferten Sforzando-Sampleplayer sind bei den neueren Styledateien die entsprechenden Samplerspuren schon automatisch richtig voradressiert.
Du kannst nur MIDI oder DXi/VSTI verwenden, beides parallel geht nicht.
Die dritte "Soundquelle" von Band in a Box sind die Realtracks. Das sind kleine Audioschnipsel "echt" aufgenommener Musiker, die durch die Software zu einer durchgehenden Begleitung intelligent zusammengesetzt werden. Das klingt am besten, weil es eben echte Musiker eingespielt haben, die Musik also nicht computergeneriert wird.

Wenn du also keinen MIDI-Soud hörst, kann es einige Ursachen haben: Entweder hast du in den Audioeinstellungen von Band in Box beim MIDI-Output-Treiber keinen MIDI-Synthi zugewiesen oder du steuerst einen DXi oder VSTI-Sampler an (dann das Krezchen dort wegmachen). Evtl. hast du auch in den Windwos-Systemeinstellungen die Lautstärke für MIDI runtergezogen oder du hast einen zweiten MIDI-Player zusätzlich im System installiert und aktiviert (zum Beispiel passiert das, wenn du Finale gleichzeitig startest und dort der ARIA-Player aktiviert wird).
Das sind nur so erste Tips. Versuche mal, ob du damit weiterkommst.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
