Actually, despite my efforts, I'd been unable to get to the specific Brent demo for which I was looking. This is it!

I want to use this as a basis to expand the song theme further within the program. To clarify, am I now able to import the band .m4a file into BiaB directly and make modifications to the file and expand the song? Will the import separate the demo into component instruments from the demo and place the individual notes present in the demo in the individual cells on the chord sheet, or am I overestimating what it can do? Am I on the right track or thinking I can do more with this .m4a file than I can really accomplish?

Thanks for getting these files for me! Greatly appreciate it!

I'm afraid a lot of those questions have "No"as the answer, so let's try narrow it down:

You can load it into the separate Audio Chord Wizard application to try establish what chords were used in that particular file. Those chords can then be entered into BBox, regardless of what style you choose, in where you can work on it further like it was any standard BBox song. Chances are high that you will want to use either of the styles that contain the instrument you liked so much, but you can change any of the other instruments as you see fit.
What you can however not do with BBox is isolate any given sound from a group of sounds in an audio file. For that you will need a much more DAW-oriented application than BBox ever presumes to be. And even with many DAWs you'll be hard pressed to find a way to do this, Melodyne might be just the only application that I'm aware of that might crack such a digitally specific task.
But all is not lost, you could still put your own transcribing skills to the test, now that you have the audio file locally to listen to as many times as you like, and try make out the guitar notes by ear yourself. That is the closest you will get to the actual playing in that particular file, for even if you find the exact chords and use the exact same style, BBox is designed to not repeat the actual playback of anything twice unless a track has been 'frozen'.

I hope this clarifies a few things for you a bit better.

p.s. You probably had the file all along and just didn't know about it. Now that we got the correct filename, try do a search in your Realtracks Demos for "2650band.m4a". It should be there wink

Thanks for your help on this topic. I'll try your suggestions and see how it works. As you said, I can always "use my ears" and figure out the chords.

BTW, I listened to some of your tunes on Soundcloud. Excellent! Jazz is some of my favorite music, especially when done well. I'll be back to your site. Noel (also on this forum) has some excellent original music also.

If you get a chance, check out some of my originals on Soundcloud, done in large part with use of BiaB for Mac. Waiting for the 2018 version!

Just to stress a significant point, the Audio Chord Wizard will be able to help you with the chords, melodic things are a different story. So in case you are hoping to crack the precise notes/playing of that guitar separately, ACW won't help there beyond giving you the general chords estimation.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
