I upgraded to BiaB 2017 last month and, during browsing the Real Track groups that I'd gotten on the PG Music web page, I found a specific Real Track that I really liked after listening to the band demo of the specific track on the web page.

I'd like to load this into my work area from the new version, but in attempting to do so, a different demo song is loaded for that Real Track.

My process was: I identified the Real Track and in clicking the demo song, I noted that it wasn't the same song that I'd heard when reviewing that particular Real Track on the website review of the Real Track groups.

Am I making sense? Anyone have an suggestions on how to load the song that I'd heard into my work area to be able to manipulate?

What is the real track demo song that you bought and paid for ?

Perhaps others reading your posting may have more and better ideas to help you .

Am I correct in assuming that it is a songfile (i.e. SGU/MGU) that you a loading into to BIAB and that when you generate that songfile, it's different from the one you heard with the demo?

I have the Windows version of BIAB and, if the above it the case, my experience is that the songfile is determined by the style file (i.e. the .STY file). If the Realtrack you head is included with a number of styles, it would be necessary to identify which style the demo used.

Regards,
Noel

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.
