Band-in-a-Box 2014 for Windows Patch Update Available

Attention Band-in-a-Box 2014 for Windows users! There's a new build 383 available here.

Summary:
Updated: Full Band-in-a-Box manual.
Improved: Guitar Tab notation entry improved. Clicking on tab in editable notation (after setting tracktype to guitar), will then set the next note to be inserted on that string.
Improved: In lyric editing more, going to the next lyric now highlights the text of the lyric.
Improved: Notation window, when note names are displayed, and there are blue lines shown for durations, now more visible note names.
Improved: For the audition play controls in the RealTracks picker and other dialogs, the play button now stays pressed in.
Fixed: Chords with 16th note pushes like ^^C weren't showing correctly using BigBand font.
Fixed: Drums demos with # in the name were not playing from the internet.
Fixed: Audio play from bar 1 offset fixed, on songs without tempo changes.
Fixed: Audio track, option in Render dialog to include/exclude audio track in render wasn't working in all cases.
Fixed: Audio Track volume not being saved with the song.
Fixed: When the option to show the Channel Numbers for the note names is selected, and you are in Staff Roll notation mode, the channel numbers appear behind the blue lines. This makes it difficult to see the numbers in this format.
Fixed: If I have all MIDI tracks in the song then changing the "THIS SONG" volume setting works ok within BiaB but makes no difference to the exported ".wav" file. That is you can have it all the way up or down but the exported ".wav" is still the same volume.
Fixed: Audition file for styles was looking for a RealDrums demo for some songs that already had RealDrums in them.
Fixed: Mute audio function doesn't cause a glitch now - happens immediately.
Fixed: When adding styles with StylePicker editor, the styles weren't being added to the new categories.
Fixed: Tab font was too big on leadsheet.
Fixed: & was displaying for some styles with & in the name, such as R&B.sty.
Fixed: F5 Bar report was missing bar numbers sometimes.
Fixed: Updating old mixer sliders wasn't updating the new mixer sliders.
Fixed: RealTracks auditioning issue if your home folder was named with "band" in it.
Fixed: If usertracks was chosen, loop dialog referred to the usertracks (and vice versa).
Fixed: Instrument radio button menu showing usertracks was showing for loops.
Fixed: Acid info file had wrong acid name sometimes.
Fixed: User Memo in RealTracks picker wasn't allowing spaces in memos.
Fixed: In notation, sometimes after pressing stop, the up/down arrows were causing notes to change in the notation window.
Fixed: Audio button on mixer was resulting in wrong notation windows width.

Review the RealTracks!

If you've purchased Band-in-a-Box within the last 6 years, you've probably used the RealTracks feature. We want to hear what you think! Post your comments here!

What are RealTracks? RealTracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). They follow the chord progression that you have entered, so you hear an authentic audio accompaniment or solo.

RealTracks are not "samples"... They are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing in perfect sync with the other tracks. Choose from pre-made Band-in-a-Box Styles, or combine RealTracks instruments to make your own band.

You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can! Adding REAL instruments played by TOP MUSICIANS to your compositions brings an exciting human element ... and that's just the beginning!

There are now over 1,200 RealTracks in the UltraPlusPAK or EverythingPAK! Over 2,000 hours of studio musicians recordings!

54 NEW MIDI SuperTracks are Available for Mac!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box 2014 for Mac we also released 54 NEW MIDI SuperTracks in Sets 10-17!

To learn more about these new Sets and listen to Audio demos, click here: http://www.pgmusic.com/addons.supertracks.php?os=mac

What are MIDI SuperTracks?

Instead of MIDI styles based on C7 chord patterns that get repeated over every chord, the MIDI SuperTracks are based on actual playing by studio musicians. When you play the SuperTracks with your favorite MIDI synth or VST plug-ins, you'll hear great sounds using MIDI. These new MIDI SuperTracks are an excellent option for those looking for the editing and control capabilities of regular MIDI tracks, but with the added bonus of incredibly good MIDI sounds!
