When you listen to a style demo in the style picker and then import that style into your chord sheet in BIAB by hitting OK, it sounds very different from what you hear in the demo. Why is this happening? I would have thought that it should sound exactly the same sound wise as in the demo. Am I missing something here. Can anyone shed some light as to why this happens. When I listen to a demo of a style I expect it to sound very close to what I hear in the demo regardless of the chords I have entered. Any help would be appreciated. I have checked with other BIAB uses and it appears they are getting the same results. Thanks for any help

Cheers

Nels

Nels,

What are the names of some of the styles that you've noticed this in? I'll check them out.

Regards,
Noel

I'm thinking it is by design since you have an option to audition the style as well as audition the style over the chord chart you've created.

It has worked out to be a great feature for me in both original projects and covers.

I spend a lot of time playing in the 2017 Stylepicker.
