I don't know of any tutorial series that covers everything Band-in-a-Box can do and all the different ways to do it. The +++ Groove3 tutorials +++ come close. I've got the 2015 Band-in-a-Box for Windows Explained and had the 2014 Band-in-a-Box for Mac. Both follow the same format and are pretty extensive.

It is critical to establish beat one bar one, as mentioned, and if the tempo varies, I press F8 to sync each measure to be sure. The last time I used this utility, it recognized two chords per bar maximum, if that matters.

Jump to new posts Re: How much RAM are you packing by eddie1261 @ Today at 06:40 AM

Many times a performance issue can be remedied with a better graphics card. I have an Nvidia Gforce with 2GB of RAM and it's too slow. Right now just viewing a TV stream and being on the web I am using 67% of the GPU. If I open another window I will be sharing that with yet another task and all 3 will run with jitters. My problem is that I need 4 HDMI outputs and a card to fit into a PCIe slot that won't cost me more than my car did. Simon, you are a good "hardware nerd" source! I

First I'd like to ditto what Dan (firesong) says about your vocals. This is a really good song because that's what you write, and it's, of course, so well sung. As I was listening the first time I was all about this song is really good and needs nothing. Then on the second listen I found myself in Ray's camp about making the instrumentation more distinct --verse compared to the chorus. Also, that "Sometimes... sometimes... sometimes... sometimes it's love" is a good idea in chorus

Jump to new posts Re: Change Timebase of Real Tracks during a song by Matt Finley @ Today at 05:29 AM

I agree. From my experience with timebase settings other than Normal, this one may be hard to implement. I hope they can. I haven’t tried a workaround with generating multiple tracks of different time bases, then editing Utility tracks. Assuming you are even allowed to do that, the muting/unmuting is probably easier done in a DAW. +1

> Add me to the list of users disappointed that there are no current plans to provide Native Apple Silicon Support for BIAB. I expect that we will have a silicon native version sometime in the future, especially as the share of Macs with M1 chips rises. The M1 machines have been around for less than 2 years now. It’s not simply a matter of recompiling, all of the various tools we use to make the programs also need to get updated, which takes time. But the “good news” in the silicon/

<< 4. On a related note, the Bar Settings dialog box seems to be limited to 8 instruments. Since it is in this window where volume/muting changes are made it would be very handy if this dialog was not limited to 8 instruments but in fact contain the exact number of instruments that you have chosen to add to your song and in the same list sequence that appears in the Mixer window. >> BIAB can do this on both Mac and PC versions.
