Hi,

I just noticed when I click on the <Prototype> option in the stylepicker, I get an ERROR that comes up with BBW.EXE.

Kevin,

What do you mean by <Prototype>? It's not a term I'm familiar with and I cannot see anything in Stylepicker that mentions prototype.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel,

When I go into Stylepicker, right click on a style, and click on "Mark as Prototype..." I get an error box that comes up.

Kevin.

Thanks Kevin.

I've never noticed that before even though I've opened that menu many, many times! I appreciate your letting me know about it.

I get the same error, too.

Regards,
Noel

"Prototype" is a description that BIAB/RB used to have back in the old-style style picker which then disappeared when the new style picker interface was created. It was actually added back in by my request.

"Prototype" is used to identify styles that are similar to the one you designate as a prototype, without going through all the other filtering options.

So, let's say I find a style is close to what I want (as in it is, for example, even versus swing, 110 tempo, 4/4, and some other parameters I would have to look up right now), I would use the "prototype" feature to list other styles that match those parameters.

It worked when it was re-introduced, but seems to be broken in the new version now. My guess it will be an easy fix.

I thought this was fixed for BiaB in Build 508 as seen in this post

I didn't realise that RealBand was still affected.

BIAB has had two updates (508 and 509) since the last RealBand update (build 4 on Dec 18th). I suspect that may be related to the problem.

John,

Thank you for requesting this earlier feature. I used to use the equivalent in older versions of BIAB regularly. Now that it's been brought to my attention, I'll definitely be using this regularly, too.

Regards,
Noel

Will this be brought to the attention of the BIAB team so it can be fixed in a future build? Thanks. Kevin

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
