The other day my computer got stuck in an auto repair loop. So I had to reset and reinstall some programs, including BB and RB. Now, a song that was close to finished has this unusual problem. On one midi track, the sound is piano for 36 measures. Then it changes to something else that sounds like midi guitar for two measures. Then it changes back to piano.

Anyone have a notion about the cause and the fix? Thanks.

Hi
I would open the song then press F5 and see if there is any voice changes set for the two bars in question on your piano track,
Mike

Like Mike stated Program Changes will do that. I will add that if that MIDI file was imported from a source other than BiaB that Program Change may be on another track. This is especially true of downloaded Internet MIDI files.

Good luck

Thanks to both of you. All the tracks are from BB. Still, I will try that.

Hi 2bSolo,

Window - New - Event List (or F2) will bring up a list of every single MIDI even on every track, it's an invaluable troubleshooting tool for any MIDI-related issues as you can peek under the hood and see a lot more info that the Notation or Piano Roll windows provide.

You'll find the Program changes that way, guaranteed.

Cheers

Thanks, Kent.

Funny thing. My function keys no longer work. I have looked on the internet and I haven't found a solution yet. But you gave me a set of commands. I will try that.

Hi 2bSolo,

The solution to the Function key issue will likely be specific to your keyboard.

Are you using a USB keyboard, or the keyboard built into a laptop? With model of keyboard or laptop is it?

Hi 2bSolo,

Does hitting or holding down the FN key (to the left of Windows key) not do the trick?

No, it just makes my monitor dim.

Thanks for trying.

Try holding down the FN key while pressing the desired function key.

Hi Alphanumeric Onl,

Can you send the file as an email attachment to support@pg music.com please? I'll be happy to check it out.

In the future, I'd highly recommend starting a new topic for any questions you have, more people will see it that way. smile

Thanks

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.
