Buenos Días: Quisiera en una canción ya creada cambiar de instrumento, en concreto la melodia. Sin embargo cuando le doy a play vuelve a sonar instrumento anterior y no suena el nuevo que le he asignado aunque en el mezclador si aparece cambiado.
Solicito alguna sugerencia, no se si hay que cambiar alguna opción.
Gracias.

Hola ACA,

Primero descartemos algunos detalles y obtengamos un poco mas de información:

- ¿Ocurre el problema en un tema o canción creada por ti o es un demo de BIAB o cancion producida por terceros?
- El tema ¿usa RealTracks, XtraStyle o es todo basado en instrumentos y estilo MIDI? ¿o es un estilo y combinación de instrumentos personalizado por ti?
- ¿Que sintetizador virtual estas usando para la pista de melodía? (por ejemplo, Coyote, Edirol, Hyper Canvas, Sforzando, Hypersonic etc) ¿o un módulo/teclado externo?
- Debes verificar que el sintetizador virtual que utilizas tenga habilitado el "cambio de programa" (Program Change) lo cual permite que el cambio de sonido o "patch" deseado sea efectuado.

Adicionalmente: ¿Que versión y build de Band-in-a-Box estas usando? nota: debes asegurarte de estar utilizando Band-in-a-Box con el mas reciente Build o revisión/actualización correspondiente a tu versión, por ejemplo BIAB 2018 build520.

Estamos atentos a tu respuesta.

Saludos
Carlos

Gracias Carlos:
Tengo BIAB 2019 Build 614
He querido cambiar el instrumento de la Melodia que es midi, por ejemplo tengo un piano acústico de GM y lo cambiaba dando click a la pista en el Mezclador a Gm 12 o sea Vibes. Este cambio quedaba reflejado en el texto de la pista pero cuando le daba a play seguía sonando el piano. El resto de instrumentos que supongo que depende del estilo elegido son Real Tracks.
Esto me ocurría con canciones producidas por terceros o importadas la melodia como MIDI habiendolas editado previamente en un editor de partituras externo.
He probado lo que me indicas sobre el sintetizador que utilizo y que tenga habilitado el cambio de programa. No se si he actuado bien pero he abierto en Options, la ventana Midi/Audio Driver Setup y en la parte derecha central, aparece un botón que dice "Dxi Synth Settings [CoyoteWT]. Lo he activado y me aparece otra ventana con los slots. En la parte derecha me aparece Plugin y debajo Dxi Coyote WT y más abajo Forced Midi Chan = None.
Este último lo he cambiado a Forced Midi Chan = 1 le he dado aceptar y ya me ha cambiado el instrumento.
Lo que no entiendo es que he cambiado a otra canción y con los mismo valores anteriore (Forced Midi Chan=None) ahora si me cambia de intrusmento.

Gracias por tu ayuda.
Saludos, Andrés

Hola Andrés,

Gracias por describir el proceso que seguiste, es interesante como se ha revertido el problema y se ha logrado efectuar el cambio de instrumento, ya que el parámetro de Forced Midi Chan hasta donde se no tiene nada que ver, de todas formas voy a verificarlo en mi sistema.

Podrías también intentar probar de nuevo con la canción en la que tuviste el problema, volviendo a colocar el valor NONE en Forced Midi Chan, de tal manera que si se repite, verificar asi que el inconveniente proviene de dicha canción. De ser así podrías hacernos llegar el archivo de la canción para hacerle una prueba.

En caso de que todo continúe normal es probable que al salvar el archivo y cargar en fresco de nuevo Band-in-a-Box haya "limpiado" algún sector de memoria o comando, a veces sucede,y no representa mayor problema.

Yo suelo recomendar a los usuarios salir de BIAB luego de sesiones muy largas o donde se hayan realizado una cantidad relativa de acciones o ejecución de comandos, ya que eso ayuda a reordenar la memoria y desechar incluso pequeñas "impurezas" que podrían irse acumulándose en la RAM y causar fallas. Esto no es inherente a BIAB exclusivamente, es relativamente normal y puede suceder a muchos programas, después de largas o complejas sesiones.

Saludos

Carlos

Creo que ocurre con los ficheros con extensión MGX creadosen BIAB a partir de importar un fichero MIDI.
Te envio un ejemplo. He intentado cambiar el instrumento de la melodia de Reed (GM 72) a Vibes, lo hace pero sigue el sonido de clarinete (Reed GM 72).

Saludos.

Perdon, a través de File Manager no puedo enviarle el fichro con extensión MGX.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
