Hi all,
I have watched several videos but am still puzzled with the problem I am having with Soloist. What happens is that it will create another instrument just as I choose but it does not create any notes/music. For exampe if I create an organ solo it will add an organ to the mixer at the bottom, either midi or real track, but there will be no music created.

Thanks very much,
Jim Lee

Jim,

When in notation view, or lead sheet view, do you click the icon to the right of the Melody track?

It's the one marked with the right-most "S" on the image below. I've drawn a yellow line under it.

Regards,
Noel

That icon is there, and will vary depending on the instrument I choose to solo, for example right now I have a "T" for Tenor Sax. But when I click on that nothing happens. I have BIAB 2018. What is consistent though is that when I choose Soloist it always puts the instrument that i choose in that bottom track on the mixer. Just no music?
So it creates the track but with nothing in it?

I wish I knew how to include an image but here is a link to two.

Jim,

The blue snowflake icon indicates that your Soloist track is frozen. With this in place, it will not be possible for anything to be written to the track because freezing tells BIAB that it "wants this track kept exactly as is".

Click on the blue icon to unfreeze. Add your soloist part. Now generate the song and play it.

See if that helps.

Also, regarding posting images, have a look at the link below.

I don't think anything will show until you 'generate' the track.

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.
