Hiya Dave it gives you comprehensive instructions in the help file and there's also a video tutorial. Anyhoo, go to help / styles / style wizard
By the way would you be the same Shakey that plays pedal steel on you tube ?

Real tracks can provide you with a very simple solo piano for waltzes or slow ballads. They've come a long way since 2008. Nice to see you on here Dave, been enjoying your music for sometime

Hi Shakey,

Also be sure to check your BiaB Pak to see if you got the Video Tutorials.

There is one, "Secrets of the STylemaker" that sounds like what you are looking for as well.

I'm looking for Stylemaker help too, but can't find a "Secrets of the Stylemaker" video anywhere. I just got 2010.5 with a BIAB Disc and a Real Tracks disc.

Is there anywhere else I can find this?

Tried viewing this tutorial - and got this msg: Windows Media Player cannot play, burn, rip, or sync the file because a required audio codec is not installed on your computer. I'm using Win 7/64.... what codec do I need here?
My system is only 6 months old, so I am surprised I do not have this...

IIRC, the codec is on the disk with the tutorial/s. However, that knowledge dates from Win 2K and versions 11 and 2006. YMMV.

R.

P.S.: I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

Look or a file called TSCC.EXE. That's the CODEC used for most of PGMusic's videos. Just run the executable (you might need to right click on it and "run as administrator"). That will install it and you should be able to view the videos.

The only other thing I can think of is to try with a different player, such as WinAmp.

What version of the microsoft media player are you using?

You may have to use the Windows Update to get a later version...

Hi, is it true that you can make a new style from an existing Midi file?

So, for example, if I like the Midi version of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, I can copy that style and import it into BIAB?

I'm having the same issue. I upgraded from XP and it worked fine before. I went to support and downloaded their Tscc.exe file. Still didn't work so I rebooted and still didn't work. I'm using Win 7 premium home ed. now. I'll keep futzing with it and let you know if I can get it to work. Please do the same for us. Thanks.


UPDATE: Did some searching but no cigar. As near as I can tell, there is no version of this codec for Windows 7 or at least not the Home Premium Edition that I'm using. There was a drop down list from the Compatability Tab via Properties and it only goes up to Vista. There is nothing on Tech Smith's website about any upgrade to Win 7 that I could find. I may try to choose the Vista option and see if that works. Other than that I'm out of ideas other than to contact PG Music Tech Support. I was going to buy the tutorial video pak so I'm glad I found out beforehand that it won't work on my system.

2nd Update: The issue is an audio codec problem rather than the tscc.exe video codec. Sorry, I don't have an answer. Instead of trying to play the video from PG Music website, I remembered that I had already downloaded a number of .avi BIAB tutorial files. They play fine. I'm out of info and out of my league on this one.

Stan

Hi,
what you actually do, is import the midifile into BIAB
( STYLES: Style Wizard - Auto Create Style from Midifile option ) it chops it up into seperate style parts to create a style.
Haven't actually tried it yet with a song based midifile, so don't know how good a job it does.
