Hi i'm new to biab and i have an issue with a style that i change a RT.

I choose the Style SWAYING.STY (Swaying 12-8 Country) and change the Guitar RT 526 and put the Guitar RT 993 instead in triple time time based. It play nicely for 8 bar. At the 9Th bar, the guitar play a chord and stop playing for the rest of the song.

I re-gen 100 hundred time, double check to be sure the track was not made mute in bar setting. I check all i can check from my knowledge of the software. If anyone have an idea of what to do.

I have another song with the same style, same instrument and the track work well all the song, but if i add some chord and re-gen it, the same issue occur ! The track play for some bar and after it stop and never come back !

Thanks if you have some tips !

Hi sebz77 and welcome to the forum!

You may receive more views and responses by posting your question in either the +++ Band-in-a-Box for Windows +++ or the +++ Band-in-a-Box for MacIntosh +++ forum sections.

It is also helpful to know what operating system your computer uses and your computer hardware. Many people put this information into their signature file so you don't have to repeat the information each time you have a question.

Also, if you have cloud storage (such as DropBox or Box) it may help if you post a link to the songfile so others can load the file and troubleshoot it.

How many bars is your song? Are you using the default (3) three choruses or did you change from the default?

Seb,

This could be due to a few possibilities and, as Jim says, it would help to know what version of BIAB you have and whether it's Mac or Windows.

In meantime, try these things...

ONE
If you have BIAB 2018 for Windows, go to the link below, download the latest build, close BIAB and manually install the update.

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

If you have Mac BIAB, then the latest build can be obtained from the below link.

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


TWO
1. Right-click in the middle of a some bar on the chord sheet.

2. Select "Bar Settings".

3. Right down the bottom of the "Bar Settings" window on the left side, select "Reset ALL bars"

4. Exit back to the chord sheet.

5. Generate the song.


Regards,
Noel

Seb,

I had the same problem in earlier versions for Windows. But it would play correctly on subsequent attempts. I haven't seen it on current versions though.

Another thing to try...Return To Factory Settings covers a multitude of sins and it can't hurt anything.

Please let us know what cures it.

And a hardy Oklahoma "welcome" and "howdy" to the most friendly and knowledgeable bunch of people on this planet!

Some of we old phartz have been in this bunch for decades and still have questions. You will never be flamed for asking.

Seb,

Also check that the track is unfrozen.

If it's frozen when it stops at bar 8, then it will always stop at bar 8.

Have a look at the image below. I've highlighted the symbol that indicates a frozen track. If this is on, click on it to turn it off and regenerate the song.

Here's the two files, it's the exact same song, the BAD one i only add a few bar and re-gen it and it dont work anymore. Guitar 993 now just play one bar. The other one, the GOOD the guitar 993 stay all the song.

BAD one:

GOOD one:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1zrvevac4h66v5c/Aline%20GOOD.SGU?dl=0

I think the problem is related to using triple-time Track Time-base. It may actually be an operational issue with BiaB though, I'm not sure.

Try setting the TrackTime-base to Normal and see if that improves your situation.

I expect that there's more to this than I have stated here though.

Work when set to normal time but sound really not good with my song !
The question is why it work with one and not the other ? The only difference is 8 bar longer with the one is not working...nothing else is different ! Very weird !

Yes, I agree with you. This is unexpected and confusing. That's why I suggested that there is probably more to this that we (I) currently know. I'll bring this to the attention of the developers, also.

I’m not at a computer to test, but are there more measures in the song than 255 divided by 3?

Good point. However the song is 1 x 64 bars, which would give a figure of 192.

The entire song plays. But the guitar track (#993) stops after 2 bars, including the (transcribed) notation.

However, thinking further, the the triple time-base is counted separately, there would be 192 bars plus another 64 bars for the rest of the song would give a total of 256 bars.

Stop press: I just noticed there is a sax part that plays as [Double-Time] so maybe that theory doesn't really work.

I have raised it with the developers. I don't know if/when there will be a response.

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.
