This works for both MIDI styles and styles containing Realtracks.

If ever the need arises to set a number of BIAB/RB SGU/MGU files to the same mixer settings, the below procedure will accomplish this in one fell swoop (as the saying goes).

The following instructions are based on BIAB (Windows) 2018.

= = = = =

1. Copy the files to be processed to a new folder (don't move them because you want to keep the originals in case something goes wrong).

2. Use "File >> Open" to open one of the files in the new folder containing the copied songs.

3. With the song from the new folder that's now open in BIAB, set the mixer as you want it to be (i.e. pan, volume, tone, etc...).

4. Right-click on the Master track (to the left of the Bass track on the upper menu).

5. Select "Save current mix as default".

6. Now go to "File >> File Utilities >> Change all songs in current folder to Default Mix".

7. When the process opens, check and double-check that the path name is correct for the new folder because the procedure that's about to happen is not able to be undone.

NOTE: If you come across the word 'Combo', this is the old name for the Master track.

8. Choose "OK/Yes".

Regards,
Noel
