It would be really appreciated if, in a new version (or an update of 2018), the status of the MASTER VOLUME in RealBand could be saved with each song.
All other areas of the mixer are saved, why not the Master Volume.
When I render a Realband song to a .WAV file, I need to keep paper trace of each song and write the number for the Master Volume that I rendered it at in case I need to come back and readjust the volume. It's terrible!!

Serge,
My experience is that one of the master volumes saves per song and the other does not (it remains a universal setting).
Knowing this I can usually get the response I want/expect. Personally I never move the master slider located between the tracks and the outputs (#1 in image below), but rather make adjustments on the Audio Out master (#2 in image below), as these do save per song. At least for me.
Hope that helps

Never thought about that, thank you, I will try it.
But I have an EQ and a compressor on that output, will that change the amount of FX applied to the output?
For example, if I bring the Vol down to 50%, will I have less of the EQ on the tracks?
If the answer is yes, then each song will sound differently... which is not good obviously.

If all of the faders on the right could be sub groups then that MASTER ALL knob would make sense however oneof the faders has to be the MASTER OUT so the ALL knob is useless.Leave it full as Rharv said.
That knob was his idea. All his fault grin

Honestly, that fader has been there forever and I don't remember any reason to use it so I just leave it on 100%

If this was my fault, it was one of the first things that were my fault.
That fader has been there a looong time.

Good question. April 2014 was his last post on this forum.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
