First, let me say thanks to all the bright folks on the forum who know so much about this wonderful product - I've learned so much from your posts.

I'm having difficulties with the song form function I hope someone can address. When I create a song form (say, using folk guitar) the riffs will change when the song parts are arranged by the song form dialogue--even if the tracks are frozen and saved.

What I'd like to do is rearrange portions of the song and have them stay intact. Apparently, when a riff is no longer preceded or followed by the original chords, it will change. Is there any way to prevent this?

I imagine that you'd get more response to this post if you created a thread in the BIAB Windows or Mac forum. This forum is primarily designed as a place that users can post tricks and processes that they've discovered when using BIAB, etc.

In the meantime, I'll try and help.

I'm not 100% sure what you mean. Just to clarify...

1. I take it that you are referring to the Song Form Maker tool that lets a user define A, B, C, etc., sections and then allows the user to instruct BIAB as to the order in which these defined sections are played.

2. I'm not quite sure mean by "no longer preceded or followed by the original chords"?

Are you saying that if originally you had Section B follow Section A (and Section A ended on a particular chord), if you then change the order so that Section B follows Section C (and C ends on a chord different from Section A), then the two riffs leading to Section B (i.e. A to B and C to B) are different?

If so, this is how BIAB works, the riffs will be chord specific and it's likely that what the musician played for a riff on a C chord is different from what the musician played for a riff on (say) a G7 chord, etc.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks for the clarification. This is why I'm not able to "quilt together" a song through song form function because of the dependencies.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
