So here I am making a simple backing track - John Denver's "Be back home again" using Hanks1 style (limited at the moment until 2017 updates arrive).
At the chorus the drums are good, guitars (which I will mute) are all good but the Pedal steel seems not to accentuate the beginning of the chorus - so its a bit airy fairy. I have tried to generate/play without success.
Is there anyway I can use this real track to come in strong on the beginning of the chorus bar or in fact any bar??
I've tried working with pushes but don't yet understand what they exactly do.
Cheers

So I've just muted the steel guitar and added a soloist steel and have "fixed" the problem but if there is an answer or other suggestions to the initial query I'll take it on board.

But yet another issue...the drum beat changes at the chorus and have no part makers to indicate it should, not sure how BiaB knows its a chorus.
Think I'll start again!!
What does ^^D mean at the beginning of a bar?? and how did they get there??
Sorry about all this..

You might be better using RealBand to get it just how you want as you can regenerate any section, change instruments/drums anywhere, you have MultiRiffs and up to 48 tracks.

Type the caret symbol ‘^’ before the chord. (The caret symbol is located above the 6 on the keyboard.)

Type a single caret to get a chord an eighth note before the beat.

e.g. ^C7

Type a double caret to get a chord a sixteenth note before the beat.

e.g. ^^C7

In Jazz styles (and other triplet feels), the chord will be pushed by a triplet, regardless if there is a single or double caret (^^).

"^^D" means that for the "D" chord to have told it to push by a 1/16 note. You can get rid of that by going to the chord settings (Alt-F5)

If you drum beat is changing and you don't have a part marker there, did you possibly change to a new drum part for that bar? You can tell, if you did the bar number will have a red underline. "F5" brings up the bar settings, including switching to a different realdrum track.

Yup... if one track doesn't work like you expect... try another. I do that all the time. Also regenerate the track because each regen is slightly different. If you get something you really, really like.... freeze it and save it...or if you're taking it to a DAW, export it right then and there. Otherwise, you're libel to lose it.

Could this be what is going on?. BIAB will by default insert a drum fill and switch to "B substyle" at the start of the middle chorus. You can change this in Song Settings by removing the check.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
