Firstly, could you tell us exactly which style you are using?

There will be no change if the tracks are frozen, so these must be unfrozen first before regenerating.

After making the change (unfreezing) make sure you press Generate, not Play.

Make sure you don't have any existing audio of the song with the same name - you can mute the audio to test. Right-click the Audio radio button at top.

I didn't exlplain it corectly I think! I'm able to change style by using substyle. My probleme is that i just need bass, drum and piano and when I change substyles thats the part who dos'nt change.

Regardless of the SubStyle, you should be able to force the playback to only play Bass, Drum & Piano. Use a Chord with a Rest to do this: Enter the Chord, followed by a single period ( . ) followed by the instruments that you want to play.

E.g. C.bdp will play a C chord and rest all instruments except for the Bass, Drums & Piano.

Also, you will need to use the abbreviations for the default backing track names (from top down) of (b) for bass track, (p) for piano track, (d) for drums, (g) for guitar and (s) for strings. Melody and solo are not backing tracks.

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.
