OK, I've checked or unchecked something I can't find a solution for.

When I render a RT (now), the volume is very low. Extremely low. The sound band (name?) in the DAW (any DAW. I've tried 3) looks like a thread. (Just an hour or so ago, all were nice and wide.)

In the BB mixer, I have everything maxed, volumes set at 100, and I've taken them to 127. In the Master track, I have both maxed, green/yellow and even tried red.

In the Render to Audio File menu, nothing looks different to me. One wav per track, normalize, normalize indiv tracks, auto are checked.

I've open/closed, reloaded. I pulled up tracks from earlier today and they are normal. Wide and loud like me.

If you could help I'd sure appreciate it. (Honestly, I Searched, went thru the help index, Googled.)

Thank you.

Never heard this one before. Did you try Option menu, Return to Factory Settings?

Andy,

If you take the wav to Reaper, it's very easy to normalise there.

1. Click on the wav to select it.

2. Press the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+N

Regards,
Noel

No, I didn't Matt, but I will. I was concerned that going back to factory settings would require me to re-set everything as I get back into making/mixing. But I'm definitely at that point where I'll try anything.

Thank you, Noel. I make so many tracks, constantly trying something new, like 50 times a day, adding that step might be required, but I'd sure like to avoid it.

You both were my BIAB heroes today/yesterday, many thanks you to you, and to all that helped me yesterday. I pdf all solutions to a file, just in case they are needed in the future. It's a RUSH when a situation is solved, especially when an important, standard process is learned and nailed down, like Noel's simple directions for Reaper's changing tempo of an existing track, which were different than directions I could find anywhere. I feel like Superman!

And not fearing the factory reset is a growing moment.

Thanks!

Sound band thing= wave form.


Are you rendering them inside of Real Band and that's where they are small or is this on the export to a DAW that they show up small?


Normally, you should have very nice fat, full rendered waves from the RT's. Although I have seen some that are weaker..... but certainly not thin threadlike forms.

Hi, Herb. I was rendering in BIAB. I don't use RB (yet). The factory reset did not help... I'll call tech support if I can't fix by the time they open.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Though it didn't help, you would have noticed that Return to Factory Settings first gives you an opportunity to save your custom settings so you can reload them.

Yes, I did see that and saved, Matt, thanks. I wasn't sure about which reset to do so I tried the first option. I was fearful that the full reset that includes midi settings might give me probs, being as tech challenged as a newt. And it did require resetting midis, but BB gave me the 1 suggestion needed. That is awesome.

I gave it another reset (2nd option), closed, shut down the CPU, and did chores for a couple hours. I just restarted, reloaded; 1st, my render speed has returned to lightning fast!, 2nd the rendered volume has been restored. YES!

Yikes. When I did that, THAT fixed it! FAT! I've never even seen that screen before (drag regarding setting for render/acid). It make the selection in the rendering screen. This is great news!

Thanks, Pipeline!!!!

(BTW, I called tech support and just got the message that they were busy. It's kind of a weird message. I felt more than a little blown off. It's Friday, so I was racing the clock to get help before they closed. I chatted with Joseph, great guy, but we couldn't resolve. I started thinking maybe it was a DAW issue, but it isn't. Especially now that PL fixed me up!)

If you want to create sections/solos/riffs to fit tracks in a DAW, you can try this http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=371691
Biab and RealBand should have ReWire implemented sometime soon hopefully.

BTW, if you want to post an image, use the tag IMAGE rather than IMG on this forum.

I can't remember if it accepts the "CENTER" parameter, but you shouldn't need it to get your point across.

Hi, John.

I'm a lot tech challenged and I don't quite understand your directions. I've never "tagged" anything, so maybe that's something I need to learn/understand. I just select insert image and tried all the floats. They all require an http address. The Media Tag button pulldown has sites designated; Youtube, Myspace (is Myspace still in existence?... I guess so...), etc.

But thank you for your suggestion, John. It's almost always user error.

"Tag" in this contents means the instruction to the forum software on how to add a picture to a post.

It's just the dropbox link, it don't end in .jpg so the tag don't show the pic, they don't have direct links.

Yep, I didn't notice that originally and yes Dropbox doesn't allow direct display links.

And didn't realize that it now allows IMG versus IMAGE (IMAGE still works). I will change my ways to save a few characters of typing.

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.
