Ooops, it fixed all of the problems that I had at the time. But now that I can use Realband again, I made a song that uses tempo changes (percentages for part of it and an actual number in another part) and when I try to render, it gives me an access error and freezes the rendering process - thus making me force close the program.

The song also has style changes, but I noticed your patch had addressed tempo changes in a different part of the process, so I wondered if I might being seeing a related issue albeit downstream?

Not sure what you mean by a song that has tempo changes with "percentages for part of it". A tempo change in the song is an actual number. The tempo map only has actual numbers.

I just tried rendering a song with tempo changes and it didn't seem to have any problems.

Thanks for your reply Jeff.

I was referring to the option (at any bar) in BIAB to change the tempo either by a percentage or by simply typing the tempo you want.

I actually solved my above problem by first rendering all of my BIAB tracks to wave files. Then opening the song in RealBand file and deleting all of the band in a box tracks. Then I imported all the wave files. From there it rendered fine.

Thanks again,

Hi Jeff,

Still awaiting for the resolution of the accidental changes to Auditioning Patches using the Classic Tracks window where the + and - keys do not now change the patches in succession. This was the subject of an Email to Support which I understood was passed on to Development for solution. The latset PTW 2015 operates correctly, I understand.
