I like the video it explains a fair bit. However, it seems I have the oohs and the aahs a bit confused in RealTracks. I load an aah and get ooh. Load an ooh and get an aah.

Hi Tony,

That was indeed a problem with the initial release, but should be fixed with the patch released yesterday:

http://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm

Try installing the build 506 patch and see if that fixes the problem. Let us know!

Ok I'll play this silly game. I can add the oohs and aahs to a new song and they are correct. I even imported the chords from the existing to a new song all is fine. I cannot seem to get them correct in the offending song. I can even delete the RealTracks save the song load the song again re apply the oohs that come back as aahs and visa versa. Not that it matters by playing around I have a combination that suits me better. The oohs are more suptle than the aahs and mixing a bit of both has me getting what I want.

Hi, no I have deleted the offending tracks by setting no real track for the tracks. Played the song and the tracks are gone. Saved the file with the tracks greyed out. Reloaded the song re entered the aahs played the song and they came out as oohs.

I then imported only the chords of the song added the aahs and they were correct. But in the original song they keep coming in wrong. It is as if the song is corrupt rather than the RealTracks.

Not that it really matters it just looks confusing is all.

Corrupted songs are very rare but they can happen. It sounds like you did all the necessary tests.

Tony,

Try opening the "offending" file in RealBand then save the imported file as a SGU file with a new name. You are saving with a new name so the original file is not overwritten.

That is a "trick" user Noel96 gave me one time and it has proven to work more often than not.

Thanks Jim. Yes I have both files. I ended up just playing to see what the results would be. (That is my way of learning)

Hello

Merry Christmas to all

I am new to this forum and to BIAB

I have an issue with vocal ohhs and ahhs, I cannot find this style in my style picker. Is it something I missed during my installation or is this something additional I must purchase

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.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
