I splurged and bought the Audiophile for Mac as a first time user of BIAB this week! After 24 hours, I'm liking the powerful tool that this is for me as a saxophonist and vocalist. I'm learning a ton from the tutorials and just playing around with the program. I bought a spanking new MacBook Pro 13" with all the bells and whistles so that this would work lightning fast and have plenty of storage. I'm not disappointed! I have noticed some weird glitches, and not sure if they are Big Sur rel

Jump to new posts Problems recording to audio track after 2021 install by dpresley @ Yesterday at 06:26 PM

One of the best new features for me is using utility tracks since I play several instruments. Although I finish up in Cakewalk I prefer using Band In the Box for setting up the arrangement. Immediately after the install Bbox 2021 allowed me to record one audio track which was in stereo but should have been mono. It played fine although only through the left speaker as recorded. Next I set up a user track to add a new bass line. After my first try I can no longer record audio although the mixer

Hi, I have actually found a solution to this but I point out a few things. So I have a few songs where I use 3 to 5 repeats of the chorus. However I only had the melody in the 1st chorus and I wanted to copy it to all Choruses. I could not get the copy special process to fully do this as the attached picture shows. Where I put in "Keep changing this" in the picture I had to set it to all the choruses. Also as shown in the picture I had to un-check the "Copy 1st chorus to whole so

Jump to new posts Anyone Know Where to Obtain the Finhol Blues Bass Board? by cchallum @ Yesterday at 06:54 AM

Take a look at the Finhol Blues Bass Board on YouTube (just do a search on these descriptor words)....I want one very badly but supposedly there’s no more available!!! Does anyone know any way to get one or know of an equivalent device. What I particularly like is that it has the capability to play in the I, IV and V chord sequence for several choices of these.....and it is simple and just sounds great AND VERY BLUESY. Any info or discussion about this would be greatly appreciated!!!! Cecil

Jeg har rodet rundt efter noget der kunne bruges til Kim Larsen/LillePalle "Den største sorg". Det ser ud som om Kim bruger bas streng på 1 og 3 og kort akkord på 2 og 4, men ret mig endelig, har svært ved at høre om et nummer er 4/4 eller 8/4. Ingen problemer med akkorderne.
