Hi,

Been using BIAB for years, but never needed to change a style in mid song. I did the dumb thing: selected some bars, change style, but of course that didn't work.

What's the procedure? Help did not offer anything immediately obvious.

I'm still using 2008

If you are using MIDI styles, you should be able to press F5 at the bar where you want to change the style, and select it in the dialog box.

If you are using RealTrack styles, you will need to upgrade. I don't think that feature was supported until about a year ago.

Hi, well, don't know if I am in the right thread here... Seems my question why the patches/instruments does not change when I change style in middle of a song is answered in many ways but not one of the concrete kind
Trying to get reggae slow to move over to cubanstyle in bar 17 - to speed up things - but the darn thing keeps the instruments from reggae... I know that Cuba and Jamaica are neighbors but this is ridiculous...
It still plays cuban allright but with reggae instruments??? Anybody know what this is? Can't change patches at F5 either. Please help"

Hello Patrick in Lapland and welcome to the forum! Pressing F5 opens the bar settings window which includes settings to directly change tempo by beat per minute (bpm) or change tempo by percentage. I've highlighted the selections in the screenshot below.

Assume the song tempo is 100 bpm. In the top setting, entering 90 will cause the program to change the tempo from 100 bpm to 90 bpm on the first beat of the bar. The song tempo remains at 90 bpm until you enter a new tempo bpm setting at a later bar.

Or you can enter a positive or negative number in the second tempo will speed up or slow down the tempo as a percentage of the existing tempo. Entering a setting of 100 doubles the existing tempo while entering a setting of -50 slows the tempo by a half. Assume the song tempo is 90 bpm. Entering a value of 100 doubles the tempo to 180 while entering a value of -50 halves the tempo to 45 bpm.

By the way, telling us what year and package of Band-in-a-Box you're using helps us respond to your questions more accurately.

Also it is customary to start a new thread when asking a question instead of tacking a question on the bottom of a seven year old thread.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
