Andrew:

I got to thinking that the problem always appears when there is a RT or RD present and wondered if the audio driver might be causing the problem.

I have an M-Audio 2496 and have used ASIO (always on) for years with no problem.

As an experiment, I switched to MME drivers and the tempo problem stopped.

My song slowed down near the end as it supposed to and then when the song stopped, the tempo reset to the original tempo.

I don't know what this tells you.
Why would MME drivers allow BIAB to reset the tempo but the m-audio ASIO drivers cause this problem. I've never had a problem with ASIO before.

Thanks.

John

Dang, silvertones, okay. We get it. You aren't having the problem at your end.

But this fellow obviously IS having the problem, so let's pitch in and try to HELP solve it, 'K?

Mac has suggested that I look at what midi output I'm using and I think he's on to something.

I was using Delta AP midi to an external synth when having problem with the tempo not resetting.

When I switched to the the internal VSTi synth (with the box checked for "route midi thru to midi driver") the tempo problem stopped. Now I can slow down the tempo of a song at the end and the tempo will reset at the end to the original file tempo.

I would never have thought of this as a solution, especially since I had tried all-midi songs playing through my external synth and was not having the tempo reset problem.


Thanks, Mac for a good idea.

John

I think this may be a bug.

A bug that only shows when using a *hardware* MIDI output in BiaB...

Software synth, like the DXi, it does not show up.

Hardware output to synth, it shows up.

John, be sure to send an email to PGMUSIC DEVELOPMENT directly with this important piece of information -- and a link to this thread also.

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
