Help! Tech S.O.S (Off topic)

General tech help for computers or music equipment.

The purpose of this forum is for people to get assistance from the community for any computer related or music equipment tech question. Anything remotely tech or musical is fair game.

Examples:

  • my guitar sound has a buzz when I plugin to my guitar
  • which type of guitar strings are best for a telecaster?
  • my iPhone won't charge -why?
  • what's a good set of home speakers for a living room.
  • should I buy an android or iPhone?
  • what's a good entry level saxophone to buy?
  • is a 4K TV worth it?

Note: This is an "Off-Topic" help forum. For assistance with Band-in-a-Box and other PG Music Products, you should post on the appropriate "PG Music Product" forum.

Band-in-a-Box® Resource: Installing Your RealTracks

Properly installing your RealTracks and setting up the directory should be done before you try to create a song with Band-in-a-Box®.

During the setup process, make sure you note the location you've installed these to when you're looking at the "Select Destination Location" window (typically this is your C:\bb folder). Then, when you're in Band-in-a-Box, visit the RealTracks Preferences (settings) window and double check the "Custom RealTracks folder" location to confirm it's the same as your installed location. If not, simply place a checkmark next to "Use a customer folder location..." and update the path.

The next time you open the RealTracks Picker, choose [Rebuild and Fix] button, and you'll see the entire list of your installed RealTracks... don't forget to [Rebuild] your StylePicker too!

Note: the same steps apply to the RealDrums.
