Jump to new posts Counter for the GUI by zedd @ Yesterday at 08:41 PM

I still wish for a minutes and seconds COUNTER on the GUI which would reveal amount of time into a playing song, so that we can quickly tell that the second chorus is starting at the 48 second mark, or whatever. I have learned to get by without it, but I often wish it was available... even as a separate palette (like Big Lyrics, the Guitar or Big Piano). Then it could be used by those who want it and ignored by those who don't.

Hi, I've been using various RealDrums in a song where I need the drums Timebase in Half-Time. No problems until I add shots/holds in the song, the drums ignore the shots/holds and just play a fill. The Timebase Normal-Time plays fine. Brian

Jump to new posts Is anyone using a Casio WK1800 keyboard? by Keith from Oz @ 04/04/20 09:41 PM

If so, do you know if it'd possible to split the volumes on the keyboard? I'm finding the volume on the lower part of the keyboard is too loud, and I'd like to reduce it. The manual only talks about splitting tones, not volume. Any help appreciated.

Jump to new posts RealBand presets have disappeared [Resolved] by mkg50 (Mike G) @ 04/04/20 08:22 PM

I tried to use Amplitube (in RealBand) today, only to discover all the presets have gone. I haven't use Amplitube in the last six months so I'm not sure when this happened. It's the same problem with Band in a Box. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Mike

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
