Please excuse this self serving BUMP.

But I have done all I can think of, including trying tips from PG Music tech support along with writing support backup emails outlining continuing and in some cases new developing issues. I am toying with the idea of purchasing another 2017 hard drive, although really feel like I should not have to. As my issues continue on all three computers on which I have installed 2017, plus the hard-drive itself. Therefore this old non-techie thinks the issue might be from a faulty copy of 2017 containing some sort of glitch.

1st time since 2004 I have to say while I still love BIAB, I am not in love with it anymore. As these issues really make gigging a hassle.

Hopefully this squeaky wheel post will bring me some promising rain.

Later,

Danny,

I cannot see that purchasing a second hard drive will solve the problem. Before doing that, can you email me one of the unco-operative files and I'll see what happens on my system? My email is under my profile that's accessed by clicking on Noel96 (left of this post).

Regards
Noel

I will Noel, and I thank you but I have already mailed the same to PG Support a couple of weeks ago if memory serves me correctly and nada in return. So I will give them another week to replay.

Apologies for the frustration that may start appearing in-between the line. I promise I am doing my best to erase it.

Later,

Hi Danny, this might be a dumb question, but, have you turned off everything in your count-in preference dialog?

Cheers

Mike B.

Yes I have Pete, but it was "almost" worth the pains in the butt to see your smiling face again, LOL!

How have you been?

Hi Danny,
I'm having the same problem, but only on some songs. I'll send an email to Support, and maybe they can have another look.

This week I tried to play my saved tracks and none of them would do the audible count in. Just the silent visual count in, in the top right hand corner. It is 2016 version. I di go into the preferences and then metronome but nothing I do there makes a difference.

Sorry you are having issues, although I would swap with you in a heartbeat. Lol, just shows how one man's problem could be another's blessing.

Best of Luck,

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
