I noticed a thread about Jbridge from a while back. I got this to use on here with East West play. Was fine until windows creator update screwed everything up.
Sooooooo, on Monday I formatted my windows drive and re-installed windows 10 ( Pro )
Sound problems I had have been solved by this, BUT, Jbridge won't work now as biab says in a flash message I have an older version on Jbridge which isn't compatible.
GRRRRRRRRRR.

I got in touch with Joao who sent me his latest update, but I just can't unzip the damn thing. It tells me that I have the wrong password. I've used 7 zip, winzip and winrar and all give the same error. Anyone else had this issue and how did they sort it ?

Ok, one the one hand it's good that reformatting solved your audio issues but you didn't learn anything by doing that. It would have been better if you managed to figure out what you did to mess things up. Now, all that's going to happen is you're likely to do it again. Whatever. As for unzipping a file Win 10 will unzip it. Just double click the file and click open. It will ask you where to unzip it.

When you say you contacted "Joao" you're talking about someone with JBridge? I'm not sure you want an updated version from them. Biab works with a PG version or at least it did originally. Did you purchase it from PGM? I would contact Support first before installing one directly from JBridge they can easily send you a new download for it.

Bob - Joao is the "J" in jBridge. It's his program.

Graham - jBridge works fine with more recent versions as long as you received the registered version via email from Joao. I started with jbridge long before PGMusic started using it, and as long as you are using the most recent version, it works fine with BIAB and RealBand.

As long as you originally registered your jbridge, you get new versions by requesting it using your registered email address on the jbridge site. This is not the same as the demo version you can download from the main page. That version will not work with BIAB.

It will arrive as a double compressed file. The file you receive is in 7z (7-zip) format and it is password protected. The password to unzip it will be in the email you received (PM me if you can't find it). You can use either 7-zip or WinZip to extract to the second compressed file, which will be in .zip (WinZip) format. The second file is not password protected and can be extracted with either 7-zip or WinZip. That will give you an executable file that you can run. Right click on it and select "run as administrator" and it will install jBridge. That puts information into your Windows Registry that BIAB can read. There is a utility that comes with it called jbridger, but for BIAB you don't need to run jbridger; BIAB gets all the information it needs from the Windows registry.

7-zip is a free download; WinZip is not, although they may have a trial use period.

John, I suggest you write a short post on Reinstalling JBridge for the Tips and Tricks Forum, and request it be made a sticky.

You're right John, I forgot about the double zipping. Graham, Win 10 will unzip regular zipped filed UNLESS someone specifically uses another format so my procedure should work on the second file.

That's a good idea, Matt. I'll see if I can do that (with screen shots) this evening after work.

As far as the password, there could be a zero or letter O confused, a number one with a small case L, etc..... If there's a way to copy and paste the password, that may be better.

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.
