Posted here; http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=459895#Post459895

I was working with another song today and the same happened. Then I realized what might be the reason for it, tested it out, and there it was. It is a bug. It is when I want to reduce the choruses, then regret it and hit cansel. BiaB reduces the chorus anyway. Cancel is supposed to cancel the action I was thinking to do, right? But it does not. But when it despite of me hitting cancel, just do it anyway, it does not do it fully. It cuts only the real tracks and half of the melody track. That¨s why the end of the song will not be recognized, because some notes of the melody is still there, hidden somewhere..

The song I worked on today did also something else unusual. 3 notes that was there, just refused to play.. I deleted those notes and clicked them in again, then they played, but this time with wrong length.

For me to see if this only happen to me, could someone try to take in a song with more then 2 chorus, click the chorus window and click a lower chorus number, then hit cancel, and see if really cancel the whole action or reduce the choruses anyway with the same result as me?

Hi Leo

You have found something regarding the change of choruses

Strangely the panel says -Yes - No - Cancel

Surely it only needs - Yes and Cancel which should revert back unchanged

I am no sure exactly which Cancel button you are referring to. When I change the number of choruses, there is just a popup menu to choose from, and not window with a Cancel button. How are you reducing the number of choruses?

Another way to change the number of choruses is to open Song Settings, then open Title/Chorus, and that opens a window that allows you to change the number of choruses. I tried this, and hit Cancel, and the change was never applied (ie the Cancel button appeared to work).

Hi Trygve,

You're referring to the "OK to adjust Melody track to fit new # of choruses?" question, correct?

If so, it looks like No and Cancel do the same thing. Neither answer stops the number of choruses from changing, but does tell Band-in-a-Box not to adjust the melody.

I'll make sure this gets reported. In the meantime, if you've shortened the song and answered No or Cancel so still have a melody that's too long, change the number of choruses back to the original number, reduce the number of choruses again, and choose Yes.

Thanks
Kent

Just the one that come up when selecting number of choruses to the right of the style window, and start and end of choruses...that shows the number of choruses...

Hi,

"No" is still a valid answer, and does need to be included.

The question isn't asking whether you're sure you want to change the number of choruses, it's asking whether you want to adjust the melody to match the the new number of choruses. If you were switching from two choruses to 3, and didn't need a melody on chorus 3, that does need to be an option. If you don't have a melody, it doesn't ask anything at all.

The only issue here is that Cancel is doing the same thing as No, when they should do different things.

Thanks

This might be a good place to add that I never attempt changing the number of choruses after I have a melody and especially after I added a tag. The result is unpredictable (or I would have reported it) and the tag melody is always displaced. I have never been able to copy or move melody that is within a tag, so I wind up reentering it.

Moral of the story: get the song form right, including number of choruses and tag, before copying the melody from the first chorus to the last, and before entering the melody in the tag. [Where I say melody, I also include the soloist track. ]

I wish it weren’t so.

Hi Matt,

That's very good advice.

By the way, I did recently discover and report a weird problem that can occur when copying notes into a tag, so a lot of that unpredictable behavior will likely improve soon. smile

Excellent!

I know that measures copied into a tag have a displacement and I think it’s related to the length of the intro before the bar that is the start of a repeat. But I’m not sure, especially when overlap or truncation occurs. When you change the number of choruses, all manner of trouble occurs and it has always been so.

I look forward to testing the fix. I’ll help if you like.

And I always answered No to that prompt. Maybe I should have tried Cancel?

I hadn't considered the length of the intro being a factor, but I'll do some more testing with that in mind, thanks for the tip!

Regarding no/cancel, it wouldn't have made any difference. smile

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.
