I asked about video editing because that uses 48,000. You said Not Really, instead of No. Fire up video, and it might change the sample rate. Not the bit rate, though, so:

I think it's equally likely the change is coming from running Pro Tools.

Well, I also said I don't do it on that computer. I have 6 computers. All are dedicated to specific things. The music computer does nothing but music. One is my day to day. 2 are music. 1 is web/blog stuff. One is my spreadsheets. The spreadsheet computer sits on my LAN but never hits the WAN.Etc....

The video I edit on that specific computer plays sound through the Windows sound bus, which is at default 16 bit 44.1 like all of them.

The next time I go upstairs, I will load a song and have my phone ready to take a picture of the yellow error box if it pops up. I am going to blame this on this latest Windows build. This didn't happen until that build 1709 removed and replaced my Windows.

When I had all that trouble when moving from RB to Pro Tools I did some tweaking in the Focusrite. However, I was still okay until that Windows build. Since then I have installed driver 4.36. I now need to locate that interface config tool and see if those drivers overwrote the firmware to a point where it reset default settings.

I am SO happy I don't work in IT anymore.... ALL DAY LONG we had to deal with this Agatha Christie mystery crap.

Eddie,

RealBand keeps a log of displayed text messages. You can display the log by going to "Help" > "Show log text of flash messages ..."

My apologies, Edie. I did not memorize what you do on each of your computers.

Warning! Your audio device is using a sample rate of 48000 which is different than the current song sample rate of RealBand (44100). This might cause undesirable ringing noise in playback. Click on this message to open the Windows playback control panel.

So following along from bottom to top, when I opened this song I go the popup about the sample rate of the capture device.

And here is where I get annoyed. I did NOTHING to the "capture device" between 1/30/2018 and 1/31/2018, and this is opening the same song I worked on the night before. On the same computer. Shut down about 11 the night before, got up at 10, read email, downloaded the NY Times crossword and worked it, and went back to the song, and got that message. And before anybody says "something must have downloaded", nothing downloaded. My computers are set up for manual updating only. (And as an IT guy, we don't work in "something". If "something" downloaded, we have to know what downloaded.) So I have no idea why doing nothing but saving a music file and closing the program does not come right back where I left off the next day.

Up to mess with the upstairs computer; a 1709 victim.....

Thanks for pointing this out, Jim. Never knew those were saved.

Eddie, are we in agreement that your troubles with your Focusrite settings had nothing to do with the Focusrite drivers?

Likely you are correct. I have not been back up there yet but am heading up later this afternoon. I am going to go through setting in Windows, RB and the interface itself and make sure they all match. I have to stop doing preliminary work downstairs if that's where the issue came from. Those latest drivers allowed me to work on Windows 10 build 1709.

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.
