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)

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.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows Patch Update Available! (Build 643)

Still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows? Build 643 is a free update full of updates for version 2019, and includes a VST DAW Plugin update to 1.16.29.

Learn more and download here. | Direct download

Note: this patch is not intended to update your version to the recently released Band-in-a-Box® 2020, which is available for purchase here.

Summary of Changes for Version 2019 Build 643 (Jan 14 2020):
Fixed: Practice window | Master Solos | Blues Piano, displays N/A.
Fixed: The Drop Station would not update if dropping a file onto Presonus Studio One.
Fixed: Possible freeze when importing compressed audio files.
Fixed: Crash with error "external exception C06D007F" while launching if using Windows XP.
Fixed: Access violation in Song Titles browser if no song is selected when clicking [Close].
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash during bootup if there is a problem with font installation (usually after upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10).
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash during bootup if an ASIO driver was previously selected, and the device is no longer connected to the computer.
Fixed: If an ASIO driver cannot connect during bootup, the default WAS driver should be used instead.
Improved: BootupLog.txt will include more elaborate information when troubleshooting bootup problems. This only applies if WriteBootUpLog.txt is present in the Data folder.
Fixed: RealTracks #2975 (Vocal Oohs-Aahs) sometimes played incorrect chords for m7b5 and C7.
Fixed: Some bars for the B section of RT 2529 were dropping out.
Fixed: Some Bass and Nylon Guitar RealTracks (including 2718, 2724, 2722, 2725, 2719) have RealCharts added.
Fixed: Several Piano and Organ MIDI SuperTracks have been edited to remove spurious MIDI events (e.g. mod wheel sometimes caused 'warbling' effect).
Updated: PDF and help (routine cleanup/updaes).
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash when opening a song that contains note-based lyrics.
Fixed: Lyrics would not display in the Big Lyrics if "Show chord symbols above the lyrics" was enabled.

Fixed: "There is no audio file currently recorded" error message when using Audio > Plugin.
Fixed: If using the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box, the BB2Go window would display an erroneous QuickTime version, and converting files to .m4a would fail. QuickTime is only available for the 32 bit version, but is only required if using Windows Vista or earlier.
Fixed: Sforzando might not automatically be added to the VST list, causing Hi-Q patch selection to fail.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.

See this new feature in action when you jump to the "Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Fretboard" topic in our 2020 New Features video: Click here...
