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)

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.

Band-in-a-Box® Drum Features!

Today is National Drummer Day!
(not to be confused with National Hug a Drummer Day, which is October 10th)

Band-in-a-Box® is a great resource for drummers! Practice with an on-demand back-up band, learn from the Pro's with RealDrums notation (RealCharts, new with version 2019), MIDI drums notation, or play in the Drum Kit Window!

Not a drummer? Add drums to your Band-in-a-Box® project with RealDrums! Whether you're looking for Bluegrass, Blues, Bossa, Country, Dance, Dixieland, Folk, Funk, HipHop, Jazz, Latin, Metal, Pop, RnB, Rock, Soul, Techno, Traditional, Waltz, or World (and variations within) - you'll definitely find what you're looking for in our RealDrums library - there are over 500 available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

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.
