Better endings would get me to upgrade far more quickly than adding new Real Styles. So put me down as being + 1

+1 for better endings, especially for styles using RealDrums and RealTracks

If only the endings were 4 bars rather than 2... or rather, the same 2-bar endings but with an extra two bars added on to allow more natural decay for the notes and the reverb.

Hi all - just a newby (well, aside from having tried BIAB probably about 15 years ago) - but yes, first and foremost on the wish-list, I think, is better endings using RealTracks and RealDrums. I thought it was me or my computer at first, 'til I checked the forums and found that "holds" don't work with RealTracks. After one day, I'm greatly impressed with BIAB 2009.5 (on Vista) - there are some minor glitches, but the big disappointment is the performance of RealTrack endings.

I'm thinking maybe of trying to tack on a 2-measure ending after a vamp-like tag, and slowing down those last two measures - does this make sense / has anyone tried this / any other simple-ish workarounds?

Welcome to the forum, John

You can adapt and edit the endings (slow downs, fade outs, etc) but you need to do it in RB not BIAB

Take a look

[I just happened to re-read this thread.]

This is another fine example of how PG Music acts on some items in the Wishlist. Tom mentioned having a 4-bar ending to allow the 2-bar ending to decay, and that's exactly what we have now in version 2010.

And you certainly can do slow downs and fade-outs in BIAB.

PG Music News
Article: The History of Play-A-Long (and More)

We came across this JazzTimes article, published today, called The History of Play-A-Long (and More), which highlights how technology has "blown the options for interaction music education wide open" in the last 50 years - and they mention Band-in-a-Box®!

Check it out! Click here to read...

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
