Hi,

Been using BIAB for years, but never needed to change a style in mid song. I did the dumb thing: selected some bars, change style, but of course that didn't work.

What's the procedure? Help did not offer anything immediately obvious.

I'm still using 2008

If you are using MIDI styles, you should be able to press F5 at the bar where you want to change the style, and select it in the dialog box.

If you are using RealTrack styles, you will need to upgrade. I don't think that feature was supported until about a year ago.

Hi, well, don't know if I am in the right thread here... Seems my question why the patches/instruments does not change when I change style in middle of a song is answered in many ways but not one of the concrete kind
Trying to get reggae slow to move over to cubanstyle in bar 17 - to speed up things - but the darn thing keeps the instruments from reggae... I know that Cuba and Jamaica are neighbors but this is ridiculous...
It still plays cuban allright but with reggae instruments??? Anybody know what this is? Can't change patches at F5 either. Please help"

Hello Patrick in Lapland and welcome to the forum! Pressing F5 opens the bar settings window which includes settings to directly change tempo by beat per minute (bpm) or change tempo by percentage. I've highlighted the selections in the screenshot below.

Assume the song tempo is 100 bpm. In the top setting, entering 90 will cause the program to change the tempo from 100 bpm to 90 bpm on the first beat of the bar. The song tempo remains at 90 bpm until you enter a new tempo bpm setting at a later bar.

Or you can enter a positive or negative number in the second tempo will speed up or slow down the tempo as a percentage of the existing tempo. Entering a setting of 100 doubles the existing tempo while entering a setting of -50 slows the tempo by a half. Assume the song tempo is 90 bpm. Entering a value of 100 doubles the tempo to 180 while entering a value of -50 halves the tempo to 45 bpm.

By the way, telling us what year and package of Band-in-a-Box you're using helps us respond to your questions more accurately.

Also it is customary to start a new thread when asking a question instead of tacking a question on the bottom of a seven year old thread.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Dr. Dave" Walker (Dr. Dave On Music) recently received Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac, and he absolutely loves it!

He's written his thoughts in detail, which can (and definitely should) be read here: Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Band-in-a-Box 2020 is a huge advance over even BB2019, with easier to use, more powerful features that give you more information while creating more musical results. You have never had more control of more features which are now much easier to find. The move forward with this version is astonishing. Again … WOW!

My very highest recommendation. Just upgrade! Or if for some strange reason you don’t have it yet, BUY THIS ONE! It will change your musical life!"
-"Dr. Dave" Walker
