Why do i keep getting this same message no matter how many times i order a complete rebuild ? Also for greater certainty after i have done the rebuild today i quit my Mac BinaBox ( 2018 Audiophile ) then do a restart of the programme and do another rebuild and get the same message . Actually it's too bad that the rebuild process does not note what are those 8 additional styles found today . Although maybe it does and i just don't know where to find them in the " log " file .

Quote: I taught music teachers Band in a Box software for 30 years. During my 30 years I became familiar with just about every piece of music software out there. Of all that software, Band in a Box was my absolute favorite for what it could do. Amazing, think about it.....as a sequencer, notation product, improvisation, teaching musical form, musical styles, digital audio, call and response, arranging for big band, accompanying software, transposition and re-arranging.

Hi there good folks, Over the last couple of years I have become increasingly fascinated with aspects of music production--not so much in the sense of mixing and mastering, which I admittedly know next to nothing about--but with using MIDI, constructing various pad sounds, and also by using wacky effects that are applied to audio to make fascinating textures (In fact there are some incredible things that are being done nowadays using traditional effects, such as delays, filters, and noise gate

Jump to new posts Folder where the Midi Supertracks are installed-Solved by musiclover @ 12/17/18 04:00 PM

Hello folks, Just noticed that on one of my backup copies of biab, the midi Supertracks are playing ok, but on my main install a lot are missing, though on the list. Rather than go and find all the installs for previous years, does anyone know whereabouts I might find them in the bb folder, so I can copy them over to main install of bb? Still on biab 18 Update The HiQ_instruments_Soforzando patch from the 2016 install seems to have solved this one. Thanks a lot.

Hi, New to BIAB and have started to try and use the record to audio today, with not very good results so far. I am using an Avid Eleven Rack as my musical interface to my Mac. The microphone for vocals is plugged into the 11R as are the headphones. I hear the vocals perfectly when recording along with the other song tracks, however when I go to play the song back I can only faintly hear the vocals. The vocal rig of the 11R is maxed out output wise. The BIAB record input meter shows a healthy l

Hallo beste forumleden, Mijn vraag is wie BiaB 2019 al heeft geinstalleerd als upgrade? Ik heb het in ieder geval gedaan en heb enkele lastige problemen: BiaB geeft aan dat JBridge niet is geinstalleerd, terwijl dit wel zo is (al jaren en met de laatste upgrades). Geeft problemen met VST's. Maar lastigste is dat ik niks kan opnemen, mijn Asio audiointerface van Steinberg (UR28M) ziet het programma wel, zoals ook in de vorige versies, maar dan geeft ie aan dat sdeze niet is aangesloten en geluid

Så kom julegaven til alle musikere: Den årlige opdatering af Band-in-a-Box. Og der er mange nyheder. De vigtigste er: 1) Den største nyhed er som sædvanligt alle de nye RealTracks og Stilarter. Man har dog ikke lavet flere stilarter med video, men det var også en ret unødvendig funktion, synes jeg. 2) Biab er nu 64 bit. 32 bits udgaven findes stadig og det er nok den der åbner automatisk, når man lige har installeret. Ændr til 64 bit ved at gå til BB mappen og find bbw64.exe. 3) De

•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
