#453479 - 01/24/18 07:41 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Macintosh] Hearing specific band demo track in RealTrack

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

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
