There have been times before, and I am at one again, that I need to snip and paste just a hi hat or just a kick from an exact spot to build a custom drum pattern. Those events are not always on a specific tick. When I position the scrolling transport line, I don't know where I am in a measure. Is there a way to toggle that on? If I could see that this is bar 1, beat 3, tick 55, that would help greatly in customizing these drum parts.



If I were to try and paste the bright yellow track to get JUST that tiny, almost subliminal event, how can I see position when I get to the paste function? If we were able to zoom in the beat markers of the measures down to at least 16th note resolution it would be easier. Is that doable?

In this case I am trying to move a kick drum and while I can move the kick drum, the hi hat behind it disappears. That tiny tick would be a hi hat that I need or the place where I cut and paste to will have a hole of silence in it.

Can you use the big or little clock ?
You have a Merge Paste option and you can set the from position.

It might be easier using the PG Drum kit "Rock Kit.sfz" in Sforzando VSTi and create up the drum track with the piano roll with copy & paste or modify a PG midi drum track.

You can also drag the C:\Program Files\PG Music Inc\Band-in-a-Box Sounds\Programs\Drums\Rock Kit.wav
into RealBand and copy & paste the hits.

Or if you want to add extra hits to a RealDrum add those hits with midi to the track below using Sforzando VSTi, you can use the metronome to add what hits where, then render the 2 tracks to a stereo wav.

Wow. That clock NEVER occurred to me!!! I always have it set on "clock" clock to time how long the song is but never on the counter. Now I know. Merci.

It's also noted in the bottom left corner of the screen in Pipeline's screen shot.
His is showing real time (HH:MM:SS;mS) like you mentioned.

You can see the time mark/selection in a lot of different ways, depending on your setup/options.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
