loop mute and count in swingbabymix Yesterday at 03:27 AM Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Some music styles are not drums, but LOOP. This will result in COUNT IN not making any sound. But I found out that if I mute LOOP at this time and check the "LEAD IN DRUM..." option in COUNT IN So, there will be a preparation sound. However, the correct logic is that since I have checked the option, there is no need to click on LOOP to mute, because if the music style is LOOP, there will be no sound in COUNT IN. So, when I check the "LEAD IN DRUM..." option, I have to choose LOOP mute every time to make a sound ready to start This logic is incorrect and very cumbersome. [Linked Image]

It seems the option to play your actual chord chart is missing in the style picker that is accessed by clicking select custom midi style. Please add this option as it is in the style picker. Thank you!

Salut, j'utilise souvent les editions de realtracks avec F7 ou F8 etc, c'est très efficace, par contre ça ne fonctionne pas avec les drums tracks, y- a t'il un moyen d'éditer juste une petite partie de drums (sur mac)?

Rock Guitar Tobin - PG Music Inc. 02/22/24 05:37 PM Forum: Styles and RealTracks Wishlist Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Hi everyone, There have been quite a few posts from people who want "more rock guitar" in general. But, a lot of those requests seemed to be in unrelated forum posts, which is fine, but I thought I'd make a dedicated post here where people could add specific requests for rock guitar styles they'd like, that we don't already have covered. So, youtube links, or just artist+song examples would be great! thanks!

Get Away from WMA musocity 02/21/24 07:32 PM Forum: Band-in-a-Box Wishlist Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Biab Win should be able to be made to use m4a and aiff as well as wma wav, you need the latest Biab version to install the latest RealTracks and if it's backward compatible it will still decompress your old wma RealTracks. This will allow the way to have crossplatform installers. It's a pain also that Biab don't work under Wine because of wma, something needs to be worked out there to allow BiabWin to work under Wine on Linux and Mac. Other audio apps work flawlessly under Wine Biab should be the same. For very little cost you open the market to Linux.

環境:27のパッケージ版を買って30オンライン版にバージョンアップしたのですが、画面は27のままで、youtubeなどの解説動画と画面構成が違い、その時点でおかしいのかも。
バージョン30でなく27が起動しているようです。バージョン30を起動したらスプラッシュ画面には30が表示されます。ヘルプメニュー>Band-in-a-Boxについて で表示されるダイアログにも30が表示されます。もしスプラッシュ画面でも「Band-in-a-Boxについて」のダイアログでも30でなく27が表示されていれば27が起動しています。バージョンアップした場合、旧バージョンと同じフォルダに新バージョンをインストールして旧バージョンを上書きするのが普通ですが、もし何らかの理由で旧バージョンを残して新バージョンをインストールした場合は、新しい方の起動アイコンを使って新バージョンを起動するよう注意してください。

Working In Biab & Reaper Simultaneously and Instantly musocity 02/18/24 08:52 PM Forum: Add-ons and UserTracks for Band-in-a-Box Jump to new postsJump to new posts
New GUI script Set-SGU-MGU-single-frozen-track-or-section-to-import-to-selected-track-GUI.zip Just extract all the files/folders in the zip to the Scripts folder then in the Actions window load "Script: Set SGU MGU single frozen track or section to import to selected track GUI.lua" Edit the script to change paths if you are not using default C:\ drive and wma use 2 \\ in file path see pic below. This allows you to set the current SGU you are working on in Biab and instantly import any frozen track or section, so each time I generate a new bit or freeze a different track I Ctrl+ S Biab first to save then click the Import SGU in Reaper. Any section you don't like in the DAW can be updated instantly by first removing that section then generate up the same section on an empty track in Biab, freeze it, save it, Import SGU. This will automatically fit the track sections to a varying tempo map allowing you to easily add Biab tracks to any live recorded DAW session. This won't create new wav files to fill up the hard drive as it will just reference the Biab source files wma, wav, m4a, aiff or any other format that you can batch convert RT & RD to, using Change-selected-realtrack-source-file-type.zip You can also use Video RealTracks/Drums using Change-selected-realtrack-source-file-type.zip to .mp4 that will replace the audio track with video/audio track. If you want to import all tracks at once initially use Open SGU in Reaper [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Hello everyone. Thanks to BIAB I've been performing in restaurants, bars, and private parties for over 20 years. I just wrote a short "How To" book for getting gigs. Since I'm a sax player it's from a horn player's perspective but most of the tactics apply to a vocalist or any other soloist. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CVVTQ64...+for+horn+players%2Caps%2C190&sr=8-1

BiabWin Under Wine musocity 02/15/24 09:58 PM Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Macintosh Jump to new postsJump to new posts
If PG get BiabWin working good in Wine then you would not have update/upgrade issues, not matter what Mac version you use or update to it will just keep working. You will also get the latest version and not have to wait 6 months for it to be translated to mac. When I tried it under Linux there are only a few issues that need fixing to work well on Wine, it was as fast as Win or faster. The main issue was it needed Windows Media Player to play the wma demos and this didn't work under Wine. You can use Parallels Desktop but then you need to buy it as well as Windows.
