Ok so here's a real beginners question.
Why is it that when I click a part marker to presumably change a drum beat say on the 4th bar, it shadows out the next bar as well as after bar 32 for 3 bars after that??
Its all good when I change the marker on the first bar on any line.
I understand it will not alter the sequence of the song buts makes it harder to produce. Am I doing something wrong here?

Cheers

Hi,
The help file under Part Markers explains this better than I could:

"When you’re reading a book, a new section begins on a new line, with space between. Band-in-a-Box does that for chords too. Whenever a new section occurs (a part marker), we start the new section on a new line and draw a grey line above to clearly mark the new section. You’ll see each section on a new line so that the form of the song is easier to see.

For example, if you have a song with a 7-bar section, followed by 8-bar sections, earlier versions of Band-in-a-Box wouldn’t start the other sections on a new line. The result was that it was hard to delineate the sections, as if an entire story was told within one paragraph."

You can prevent this behavior by clicking Options then Preferences then Display. Remove the tick from the box labelled "New Line For Every Section"

Regards,

One tip if you only want to change the drum beat pattern, rather than place a marker, right click on the bar number and select another pattern. A red line will appear beneath the number indicating you have made a change, but there will not be a marker placed. Many styles have multiple patterns to choose between and makes your drums more versatile.

Thanks again, I have a few more questions but trying to read with difficulty the small typed manual first. Like the idea of the alternate drum beat procedure.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
