Hi thanks for feedback,

The problem seems to be:

1. Demo the features seems to work.

2. But when you get deeper in a project, Bugs in this
feature create worsening problems. Problems till its
unusable.

{ using 2018 }

KGU,

Could you elaborate a little more on point 2 above?

When you say... "But when you get deeper in a project, Bugs in this
feature create worsening problems. Problems till its
unusable."

... what do you mean?

I'm not sure how to interpret "deeper in a project". What kind of things are you doing that BIAB doesn't agree with?

Regards,
Noel

USING MAC BIAB 2018 ON IMAC PRO

Styles … Most BIAB Styles Have 2 Substyles, ("a" Blue 1/2 Note Bass, "b" Green 1/4 Note Bass); To Set Substyle "a", Toggle Bar Number To Blue; To Set Substyle "b", Toggle Bar Number To Green

Set Bars 1-4 To Blue (Half Note Bass)
Set Bars 5-8 To Green (1/4 Note Bass)

TRY To Eliminate Part Marker Change For Bars 1-5, Back To Blue

DOES NOT MAKE THE CHANGE NO MATTER WHETHER ...
BLUE, GREEN, OR WHITE PART MARKER PLACED ON BAR 5
ALSO IGNORES CHECKMARK ON "NO CHANGE IF SUBSTYLE"

Hi JDW,

Welcome to the forum.

Did you regenerate the song after changing the part markers? Also, if any of the tracks are frozen, they need to be unfrozen before generating for the part marker changes to take effect.

Regards,
Noel

Thank You For Your Response, Noel
I did try that late last night and it worked.
I was surprised because there is nothing in the Mac manual about using GenPlay for that purpose.
Again, thank you so much
JDW

Also, don't forget the song setting "vary style in middle choruses". Even if you have "A" and "B" part markers within a chorus, they'll be ignored in all but the first and last choruses. It will just play the "B" part marker in the middle choruses.

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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
