I was having trouble opening/using a RB file recently (Error message: "Not enough memory to map soundfont").
In the ports dropdown, I noticed I had about six instances of SampleTank (I presume this was from trying different instruments for various tracks).
I'm guessing this is the cause of my "Not enough memory to map soundfont" problems.
But how do I remove these SampleTank instances from the slots?
Similarly, I've noticed in other RB files where I have rendered Kontakt midi tracks to Wav files, a black Kontakt screen flashes up (and disappears) when I open the files. Does this mean Kontakt is still using up memory in these files that have only Wav tracks? If so, how do I fix this?
Please help.
Mike

To remove synths from ports, just right click the track, go to Ports and change the synth selection to None (or default DXi).

I don't know about the black Kontakt screen.

Hi Rharv, thanks for responding but after I click the track and select ports I can see all the ports and their assigned synths but I still can't see an an option to select "none".

In that list click on the desired Port, then it's in the top drop down of the resulting window (from memory).

Or maybe, if that Track is assigned to that Port/Synth already
try clicking Edit VSTi/DXi
Then in the resulting dropdown change it from whatever it is to None.

Thanks rharv. Your second suggestion did the trick. Cheers, Mike

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
