hello

it would be nice to have the same mixer window in the stylepicker window as the main bb mixer rather than have to keep using track settings.
sometimes i just want to click mute or freeze or visa versa while still in the stylepicker.
thanks.

I'll go along with that. There are several 'clicks' too many to mute/unmute a track from within the StylePicker. A small mute or solo button directly on the control would be very worthwhile.

+1 here.
Seems to be enough room for solo/mute buttons, right at the end of each black bar the show the instrument name.

There IS a button at the end of each track of the Style that you choose in your Stylepicker. One of the clicks is "Track Settings", then just go to "Mute".
It does require you to have an SGU on the go at the time though and choose the "Play current chordsheet for this song" option and untick "4 bar preview"
However, it WOULD be nice if that existing button had a "mute" directly there.
Of course, it will not affect any of the pre-made Demo's - that would be a Big Ask, I think.

Everyone agrees that the present solution is not ergonomic at all : too many clicks to mute/solo one or more track.

Everyone mentioned mute but paulpaul's request is for the Band-in-a-Box mixer to be duplicated in the Stylepicker window.

What about the solo, freeze, volume, pan, reverb and tone settings for each track? What about the Plugins, Pianos and Patches windows?

Excellent idea. I always end up dropping back into the chord chart window because muting and soloing is so unergonomic within the Stylepicker ‘mixer’.

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

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

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.
