Have you download the November 2016 RealTracks update? From the ++ Windows Support Page ++

Quote:
This patch includes RealTracks updates completed during 2016, prior to the release of Band-in-a-Box 2017. If you purchased the Band-in-a-Box 2017 Everything/Ultra/audiophile, you don't need this patch as the fixes are included. A summary of the fixes and improvements is listed below.

Some audio files are updated in this patch, so users with the audiophile HD version can instead download this larger patch (700 MB)

Fixed: Some incorrect Shots assignments.
Fixed: Timing issues with "Banjo, Tenor, Rhythm DixielandFastA-B Sw 165" have been fixed, meaning the playing should fit much better with the other Dixieland RealTracks.
Improved: The RealDrum Styles ShakerCelticEv16 and ShakerEven8ths have had the groove improved so the rhythm sounds more natural. The endings have also been improved.
Fixed: The variations for BossaTerryClarke have been fixed to correctly describe the substyles being used.

Oh yes, and that's a good reminder:

It does pay to look at the Support page every so often, to find goodies.

Yep but note if you bought BIAB 2017 (Everything/Ultra/audiophile) you don't need this update and I quote from PG update area:


"This patch includes RealTracks updates completed during 2016, prior to the release of Band-in-a-Box 2017. If you purchased the Band-in-a-Box 2017 Everything/Ultra/audiophile, you don't need this patch as the fixes are included. A summary of the fixes and improvements is listed below."

Yes. Note the date of the update. It's one day before BIAB 2017 was released.

I assume from the release notes that if you remain on the 2016 or earlier or if your 2017 update is UltraPlus or less you want to apply the RealTracks update.

As always, if in doubt, apply the update. It won't hurt anything.

Yes, that's true. My understanding is that it only updates what it finds.

Related: see today's announcement of a new RealTracks update with a bunch of fixes.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
