I have an old Dell Inspiron laptop with a Sound Blaster X-Fi Go USB card.

I want to use Master Tune in BiaB 2019, but my current external card doesn't support that function.

Can anyone recommend some other kind of hardware that would let me run the Master Tune function?

Thanks for any guidance you may have.

Steve

My soundcard does support master tune, according to BiaB's soundcard master tune capability test dialogue but, when I then alter the master tune setting in the master tune dialogue, and click on 'OK', the tuning change is not carried over to the songs.

Have I missed out a step in the above?

Can you guys tell us exactly what "master tune" is. Google says it has something to do with a bicycle.

This setting (Options | GM Settings | Master Tuning) is only for MIDI, and would not affect RealTracks at all. In addition, I'm not sure if this will work for VST synths at all, so is most likely not very useful these days - unless you are using a dedicated external MIDI module...

I agree with Andrew, it is not that useful unless you are using a dedicated external MIDI module.

It is also useful if you are recording an acoustic piano that is not tuned to A=440Hz. My wife's piano is tuned to A=432Hz because the old wooden parts could break if it was tuned to A=440Hz so if I were to record it and add some tracks those tracks have to be set to 432Hz via master tune.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
