FYI, the Latest version (602) has been in all the installers since 5pm Saturday dec, 1 PST. So you don’t need to update to it unless you downloaded before that (you can confirm that if you see 602 in the help about box)

It is getting late I am a bit sleepy, I think I saw 64bit...
64BIT????!!!! And other cool stuff!

I still do not believe it. I will have to check in the morning to see if this was hoax.

If true, Thank you!!!

This is a huge step forward.

Daw plugin with multi riff function...
Awesome release!

Video presentation for DAW plugin was great too. This guy (I recognize the voice, but not the name) should do more such demos or educational videos!


Again,
Thank you!

Hello,

Super but a bug !

Bonjour à tous, bug dans BIAB 2019 acheté aujourd'hui : La sauvegarde des tracks au format wave propose uniquement l'extension ".W" et non l'extension habituelle ".wav" comme dans les précédents BIAB. Il faut renommer l'extension une fois la sauvegarde effectuée. Cordialement, JCB.

Translation:
Hello everyone, bug in BIAB 2019 bought today: The backup of tracks in wave format only offers the extension ".W" and not the usual extension ".wav" as in previous BIAB. You must rename the extension after the backup is done. Sincerely, JCB

Greetings Bourdrant,

I am unable to duplicate the issue (The backup of tracks in wave format only offers the extension ".W" and not the usual extension ".wav" as in previous BIAB). Please provide step-by-step instructions how you are creating backup tracks.

Google Translation:

Salutations Bourdrant,

Je ne parviens pas à reproduire le problème (la sauvegarde de pistes au format wave n'offre que l'extension ".W" et non l'extension ".wav" habituelle, comme dans le précédent fichier BIAB). Veuillez fournir des instructions pas à pas sur la création de pistes de sauvegarde.

so..... VST Plugin ....

a question:

If one has dragged some generated audio or MIDI tracks from the VST plugin window into the DAW - and then one modifies the chord progression i some way and regenerates - do I have to drag the tracks into the DAW again or do the track displays just auto-update with the new BIAB content in-place?
is there a mode where one doesnt have to drag the tracks at all and instead the plugin just pipes the audio into a track as if it were a multichannel plugin like Kontakt?
And similarly can it just pipe MIDI from a MIDI or MIDI SuperTrack out of the plugin into the DAW MIDI input of a MIDI track and then just get processed by any plugin instrument hosted in the DAW instead of one hosted in BIAB?

nonchai,

Drag the yellow music icon (inside the red square) from any RealTracks track that has the icon to an empty daw track and the RealTracks notation midi will be copied from the VST to the daw.

PG Music has a +++ VST Plugin Help +++ webpage which describes some of the VST features.

I'm sorry but I don't know the answer to your other questions.

I got an answer from PG Tech support directly.

< do I have to drag the tracks into the DAW again or do the track displays just auto-update with the new BIAB content in-place?>

YES

<is there a mode where one doesnt have to drag the tracks at all and instead the plugin just pipes the audio into a track as if it were a multichannel plugin like Kontakt? >

NO. THERE IS NO routing of ANY audio in real-time from the "plugin" into the host.

<can it just pipe MIDI from a MIDI or MIDI SuperTrack out of the plugin into the DAW MIDI input of a MIDI track and then just get processed by any plugin instrument hosted in the DAW instead of one hosted in BIAB? [/quote]>

NO. No MIDI is going at all from the plugin into the DAW host.

So to cut a long story short - this is a highly disingenuous release, since it is the expectation for both VST and AU plugins .... ***FROM THE DAY STEINBERG CREATED THE VST STANDARD !!!! *** that a VST or AU plugin provides audio for the DAW host to use and process. And same for MIDI output - although not all plugins support that.

PG Music News
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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.

#TipTuesday
