Hallo, ich habe BiB 2018 gekauft und installiert und habe nur eine englische Bedienungsanleitung, daher hätte ich gerne die deutsche Bedienungsanleitung für BiB 2017.
Kann mir jemand weiterhelfen?

Hallo Jacksteam,
willkommen im Forum!
das deutsche Handbuch und auch das deutsche Sprachfile zu Version 2018 wird erfahrungsgemäß im Frühjahr 2018 erscheinen. Bis dahin kannst du dir das deutsche Sprachfile für die Version 2017 installieren. Es enthält auch das Handbuch 2017 als PDF. Dort sind alle neuen Features der Version 2018 aber noch nicht beschrieben bzw. die entsprechend neuen Menupunkte im Programm also auch noch nicht übersetzt.
Das deutschen Language-Pak 2017 ist hier verfügbar:

Hallo, als Frischling im Forum, BIB 2018 friscgh aus Amerika läuft bei mir seit Ende Dezember. Hatte diesen Post gelesen und das deutsche Language-Pak 2017 gleich dazu herunter geladen, leider verlangt es in der Installationsroutine die Version 2017 oder besser, trotz Installation und Registrierung der 2018er. Auf Nachrage des Speicherortes habe mehrere Unterordner angegeben, das nutzt aber nichts. Gibt es vor der Veröffentlichung der 2018er Sprachdatei noch eine Mögliochkeit auf das Handbuch 2017 zuzugreifen?

Das stimmt, die 2017er Localization, jedenfalls die automatische mit der exe-Datei, funktioniert nicht mehr ohne weiteres, weil mit der 2018er Version die Ordnerstruktur von Band in a Box aufgegeräumt wurde. Da findet die Installationsroutine von 2017 natürlich nicht mehr die Ordner und moniert das. Es werden ja nicht nur die PDF des Handbuchs aktualisiert sondern auch die deutschen Menü-Punkte. Ich bin bis zum Wochenende nicht an meinem Rechner, dann kann ich dir die PDF des Handbuchs aber per PM senden. Ich bin mir aber sicher, dass das auch der Support ( problemlos machen wird, falls es eilt.

Hallo Brille, ich bin nicht sicher , dass ich das nun richtig gemacht habe. Ich habe unter My Stuff edit Profile "From time to time we send out emails regarding this community.
Do you wish to receive these emails?" den Haken bei "yes" gesetzt und hoffe dass es nun funktioniert.

#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

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 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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).
