Every time I try to record audio it is out of sync with the song I created originally in BIAB. There are only two real tracks in the song, no midi. The vocal track on playback is always behind. Please help. tech support is not open for a couple of hours.


Figured it out. I originally saved track as a punch in. Do not know why that is an option yet but that is what messed up my timing. Explanation wanted please. I need to better understand what I am doing.
Thanks Rich

The punch in feature is designed to record in sections or phrases of a larger recording piece. A punch in/punch out is many times use to re-record a section of a larger recorder where a mistake has been made or a performance is sub par so as to not have to redo the complete recording again. Over time, you will find it to be a very useful tool.

Some people record a track in phrases rather than attempt to record a complete recording from start to finish.

I'm curious. How do you save track as punch-in?

I've used RB for many years don't recall seeing that option.

As familiar as I am with sub par performanxce, let me add that if I need to do that I just record the "patch" to another track and paste it over the clam.

A dialog box comes up after I finish recording in RB 2018 asking if I want to save the take as a punch in.

Sounds like you have "punch-in" turned on. When you record and punch-in is turned on, it is basically asking whether you want to save the entire take, or only in the defined punch-in region. That doesn't affect whether the timing is off (as that is usually a soundcard/computer configuration issue), but the feature is there to ensure you don't lose a whole take because you left punch-in enabled.

The subject and the post content are difficult to tie together.
They appear like 2 different issues.

The Punch In setting is right beside the record button in the newer version. Uncheck any boxes for punch in, unless you intended to do that.

If the subject is accurate and the new audio is out of sync; is it consistently off or does it waver?

How are you listening to the existing tracks while you are recording the new audio tracks?

I stated in an edit on my original post that I solved the sync issue. That is no longer a problem. I guess I should have put that information as a reply instead.

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!!!
