How can I make a wav file from a seq and put it on a cd-rw so I can listen to it in my car? I can't seem to find a way to do other than a midi file. Thanks

Oh boy, I have had so many questions I love it when as a Newbie I can answer one. This is what I learned from Ray Thigpen re your question. Once you have saved your SEQ file you are ready to merge your mix to a stereo WAV file. Go to the Audio menu and select "Merge Audio and DXi Tracks to Stereo Wave File". I am making an assumption here that you have alread mixed and mastered your track and have the sound you want and have saved it as your master. If that is so you can just launc your CD Burner. I sugest you download and study the Basic Mixing and Mastering with RealBand by Ray Thigpen. He has made the process almost dummy proof.

Thanks for info, it worked out fine. What is this about mastering, I can't find anything like that in RB. I will also look into Ray's thing too.

I'm glad it worked for you. I will say that the RB Manual, Chapter 11 briefly speaks about mixing and mastering. The truth is it is very limited and only speaks to what RB is capable of doing. It says nothing as to how to actually do it and is not very helpful. Sorry Mr. Gannon because I love your products, but ...
Additionally when I read the responses to questions from some of the veterans, I am even more confused. They are very knowledgeable but a good instructor meets the student at the students level not the teachers and initially the assumption must be that the student knows NOTHING, or at best, very little about the subject. I cannot figure out what some of you guys are saying, but you sure sound smart. This is not a criticism just an observation. The manual should be written by the technical folks then handed over to the Ray Thigpen's of the world for editing.

I thought this was a fairly straight forward answer to the question.

You keep talking about a manual, when I got my ultrapak, I got the hard drive, Biab manual, 300 some pages, and a booklet with 2010 updates. Was I supposed to get a manual for RB too?

It's a .PDF file located in the Real Band folder. If you need printed fire up the old printer and a stack of paper.

Please accept my apology John, I wasn't necessarily speaking of you I was speaking in general which is always dangerous.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
