My workflow is very simple. BiaB to Studio One Pro and sometimes, if I need manuscript, Musescore 2. I extremely glad to see BiaB get some good reviews. It's about time!

I'd use BB to generate a midi drum track.... trying to make a track that isn't boring is the hardest part. Then it's just a matter of directing the midi out to the drum machine and doing what you want with the audio. Use a good DAW to minimize the problems and confusion. Sonar or another good DAW can handle multiple midi tracks. Years ago when it was Cakewalk Sequencing software, I saw a live band using CW Sequencer to run everything except the guitar and the bass. The two guys had progra

I've been a user of BIAB for a long time now. I would really like to see some styles created for Traditional Black Gospel, like Mahalia Jackson, Marlon Williams, the Caravans, Albertina Walker, Alex Bradford...etc. Also would like to see more styles for Old Southern Gospel such as the Statesmen Quartet, Blackwoods, The Rebels, Cathedral Quartet. This would be awesome if you could do this. These are lost styles that would be great to be brought back. I work in a church setting and would love to

I use Cubase. Not sure if it has "groove" track capabilities like logic but I did recently discover the chord track on there that works similar to BIAB for any MIDI or virtual instrument. I've used it on a couple EDM songs by probably could use it in conjunction with BIAB tracks to add extra virtual instruments to a song.

Hola ACA, Al parecer el estilo correspondiente a _ARVAMP.SYT pertenece a un set "bonus" de RealTracks incluido solamente en las versiones UltraPak, Audiophile y PlusPack. Voy a realizar una búsqueda en detalle para averiguar exactamente a que conjunto de RealTracks pertenece y si esta disponible individualmente. Como acotación, y después de haber escuchado el estilo, quiero sugerirte que des un vistazo a los estilos incluidos en tu version PRO, entre los cuales se encuentran al

Hi Zonno, This might help: Right-click on MetronomPro.exe, select Properties. In the window that appears, click on the Compatibility tab, check the box marked "Run this program as an administrator", and click OK. That stops most Access Violation errors, please let us know if it doesn't. Thanks Kent PG Music

KeithS is so right. There is already a lot of new activity in progress with MIDI standards. Some of you may remember the MIDI Association announced two specifications back in January, 2018. One example is the +++ MIDI Capability Inquiry (MIDI CI) +++. MIDI CI enable devices to automatically inquire and set features that improve compatibility and simplify configuration.

I'm a big fan of the "Download Manager" within Band-in-a-Box® for Windows - it's a great tool to confirm or help with the installation of your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows program!

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
