Jump to new posts Held function not working as hoped for bass RealTrack by JRGariano @ Yesterday at 07:04 PM

I have an 'a' section of a song in RealBand that I'd like the bass RealTrack to play really simple (while the rest of the tune I want it play it's default way which is more lively and complex). I select that section and then the bass track, go to regenerate that portion and I check the "held" check box, but the generated result still seems just as lively and complex as the rest of the track. I was hoping the bass player would just hit the bass note of each chord and hold during that se

Hey guys! I'm back with another video that shows you some steps you can take or things to watch out for if you find that your song keeps looping. While veteran users may already know these tips, this can be a helpful reminder to many! This is applicable to both Mac and Windows, although I am demonstrating this in a Windows copy of Band-in-a-Box.

Sometimes a musician does not need to read off of sheet music and prefers just a chord chart to improvise over. This tutorial goes over how to copy the chords and other song project info from Band-in-a-Box and paste it into a document that you can then print or email to a collaborator. The steps shown in this video are the same in the Band-in-a-Box for Mac version. https://youtu.be/hFYfsDjde8I

I'm sure that most here are already aware of the IK Multimedia Syntronic2 Group Buy which ends with May in a few days. Right now it's 30 synth models for $50 with a very good possibility of hitting the goal of 33, converting it to Syntronic 2 MAX, with extra presets and multis (right now---and this is just a rough estimate---it's probably at around 5000 presets). I just joined the group buy and haven't yet downloaded the new GUI features (although you can try out some patches with the free Cus

Jump to new posts Songs in Search of a Singer by TuneMonger @ 05/24/22 02:54 PM

I haven't been active on the Showcase the past six months, but I have been writing songs. I started a Soundclick page with examples of the songs featuring my mediocre voice. For any of you singers who are looking for material, it'd be great if you would listen to my songs and see if any are worth your recording time and effort. The link is below, there are twelve songs to start. As I mentioned, they feature my crummy pipes, so you will have to use your imagination to hear them with a quality

Jump to new posts Multiple VSTi Changes On The Same Track by Pipeline @ 05/22/22 03:41 PM

If you want other VSTi's changes then you can use Free KV Element load it on the midi track now load the 2 sax vsti's into it setting one to one midi channel and the other to another midi channel. In Element you can chain midi VSTi but you can't in Biab for some reason. https://www.dropbox.com/s/arhdxm36f3psr9v/BB222-2-VSTi.mp4?dl=0

How to: Using Playable RealTracks in the Notation Window of Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Windows

With the release of Band-in-a-Box 2022, we added Playable RealTracks! These allows you to add MIDI notes to the same RealTrack that is playing, either at the same time, or alternating back and forth. This means you can get the RealTracks to play the notes you want at key parts of the performance, either augmenting or replacing what the RealTracks is playing, for the section you want to change.

See how to use and edit these in the Notation Window with our video, Using Playable RealTracks in the Notation Window of Band-in-a-Box®
