I choose specific VSTi for a track in Power tracks and load Session horns Pro, choose single instrument bass trombone. Then i go to a different track, choose specific VSTi as Session horns, choose performance (this is a horn section choice), it plays as bass trombone. Any help appreciated!

I believe that Single instrument and performance instrument are viewed as two different instantiations in
Kontakt.

Did you make sure that each track is using a unique channel, and then did you match the channel to each of the Kontakt instruments (Single and Performance).

If that doesn't work, then try loading a second instance of Kontakt into an unused slot for the performance track and load the performance instrument there; set the first track to play the first Kontakt slot and the second to play the second Kontakt slot.

Thanks so much John! The channels thing worked. I have never really understood how midi channels worked. Is there a tutorial some where?
Thanks again - Bernie

First of all, MIDI channels and DAW tracks are two different things. Channel 3 can be on track 7, for example. They do not match up (although you can make them match up if you wish, but they don't have to).

The track is nothing more than where music content is recorded and stored for playback. A MIDI track can actually have multiple channels in the content (each note has a channel associated with it), and you can also have the same channel play on multiple tracks (however, this can sometimes introduce some unintended sounds).

The general MIDI specification allows for 16 channels to work with. Channel 10 is generally reserved for drums. Assuming that the MIDI data on your track is only using one channel (and PTPA has a feature to rechannel the MIDI data to whatever specific channel you want), your MIDI track will send that data (the notes) to the MIDI synth using the channel defined for those notes (for example, the melody channel from a BIAB file is channel 4). The receiving synth (for example, Kontakt) must be set to listen for data on the specific MIDI channel. It will play back whatever arrives on that channel and ignore data from any other channels.

Some synths (such as the Coyote Forte or the Cakewalk TTS-1) are set up to automatically route each received channel to one of 16 output channels, so you don't have to expressly set the channel like you do with synths like Kontakt.

Don't know if that helps any.

Thanks -that explanation is very helpful.
When I thought about it, up to this point I've only used audio files and my Juno synth for midi. So I've never really had an occasion to utilize different channels. This goes to show that making errors can be a learning experience! Thanks again John!

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
