How are you 'importing'?

Did you save a file in Biab and Open in RB, or export tracks and trying to import to RB, or?

There are lots of ways to do this, knowing how you are trying to do it, and which version of RB/BiaB you have will help with suggestions.

Saving in BIAB and importing into real band. vs 2018 Just installed on Sunday. Getting an access code violation. an exception error has occurred. You can save the file and then reboot program. address 0040d1dc in real band,exe 0000000C

The drums do not import. I tried converting drums to a wav file and it comes over asking if I want 1 or 2 tracks. Either way the drums are no longer in stereo. The song also starts over again after it finishes. It loads itself more than once in succession.

Rich,

Have you tried opening the MGU/SGU file that you saved in BIAB directly in Realband? It's not necessary to import.

Also, when you startup Realband, do you rightclick on the startup shortcut and then select "Run as administrator"? (If this hasn't been set permanently on your system, let us know and we'll tell you how. It's different from logging in into your computer as Admin.)

Regards,
Noel

I opened Real band as admin. and opened the sgu file as instructed. everything including the drums came over. It doubled the tracks and added a vibraphone track??? And the song repeated 3 times. I think that may have to do with the BIAB setting. Maybe I have to change the chorus to 1 before I open in real band. The added tracks is still a mystery.

Rich,

Firstly, both Realband and BIAB need to be run in administration mode to get the best out of the programs.

To set running as administration mode permanently...

1. right-click on the program's start-up shortcut

2. select "Properties"

3. under the "Compatibility" tab, activate the "Run as administrator" option

4. do the above with both Realband and BIAB shortcuts

If the Realtracks that you used had notation present, this notation will also load in as a track when you open the SGU in Realband. The tracks can be deleted if you don't need them.

To tell if a Realtrack has notation, have a look at the file in BIAB and there will be a line under the name if notation is present (see the graphic below where Bass, Piano and Guitar all have notation present).

Regards,
Noel

Thanks I will set that up. I failed to mention that the information on these other tracks were random lines. I assume it was midi data? Don't know how it got there but I will go over everything tonight and reload the song from scratch.
Thanks Rich

It is midi because Realtracks notation uses midi.

okay, I still get the extra midi tracks for some reason. I just deleted them. Another question if I may. Can I replace the drum track with a different style in real band without having to delete the song and re-open from BIAB? I have looked but cannot find anything about it. I also notice when I switched the drum track style in BIAB the style name does not change in the box below the title even after re-generation and a reboot.
Thanks again,
Rich

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
