Why? Why put it on a wishlist?
This is advertised as a done deal.

UserTracks videos are out...
Why would you short-change yourself?

...also share, sell, yada-yada...

So, what seems to be the problem?
bump, bump, bump!!!

Good morning, everyone,
First of all I would like to thank you all for the help you give on the forum it's great.
But as far as usertracks are concerned, it would really make sense for one of the pgmusic managers to tell us what they intend to do about the missing features in usertracks ( artefacts problem , does not take into account the fisheries and agreements maintained, limit the number of key transpositions, the BIAB reading engine should transpose at most half a tone, not more than we could create, say, a UT with 6 keys so we will not lose quality if the sound is transposed by half a tone)
In this thread. Peter Gannon had announced that he was updating the features of Usertracks in January 2016 so maybe all of us biab users deserve some explanation and to know if there is a future with usertrack.
I thank in advance on behalf of all users of biab to pgmusic for giving us one or more answers.
I apologize for my English, I use a translator.

You expressed yourself well. The translation is very good.

Three fixes have been made.

PG Music has licensed Zplane Development's Elastque Pro pitch and tune engine for some time. The pitch and tune engine is now version 3 which is a substantial improvement.

How endings are handled has changed.

3/4 time now works.

The program manages UserTracks better than it did when the feature was first introduced in 2014. But much works remains to make the feature more useful.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
