Is this kind of piano rhythm available in RT? swingbabymix 4 hours ago Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Please watch this video. (At 3 minutes and 28 seconds)
Is this kind of piano rhythm available in RT? I can not find it. It's very difficult for me to find a similar rhythm. Is there a better way, such as importing automatic recognition? Also, every time I click to listen to RT, I have to click SOLO repeatedly. Can I keep SOLO forever? thanks

If anyone out there is interested I have a great many songs available under the following categories: Classic and Popular Country; Gospel; 50's, 60's and popular Rock; Great American Songbook, and Instrumental classics. For a complete catalogue, contact Peter Styles @ I have a limited knowledge of theory, ( )but my efforts seem to be acceptable to quite a few people.

RealTracks A Different Way musocity Yesterday at 09:47 AM Forum: Band-in-a-Box Wishlist Jump to new postsJump to new posts
With just a few days to go for 2024 I would like to see the same instrument/guitar mainly Direct Input (allowing whatever FX you like), to have lots n lots of different patterns so you can change patterns at any bar or beat and it will be seamless transition with no tonal change. You pick the guitar and tempo then over to the side you have a preview list with all the patterns (similar to RealDrums with the Variations). The same with a solo instrument. This would also cut down on the amount of Playable RealTrack sfz's you would need down the track, you don't need FX versions also, just the DI that will use a default vst fx. RealTracks are not added each year only new patterns to the existing guitars rather than having to go up/down to choose from a massive list of different sounding guitars with different levels and FX. Also, to go from playing a rhythm into a solo you want the same recorded guitar as a soloist.

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
