I posted it here, as nobody seems to read the wishlist:

Who wants the songpicker's old folder selection functions back?

1) YES
2) NO
3) MAYBE IF: ......

YES, YES, YES

At least we deserve a response of some kind from PGMusic.

I have been using BIAB since the days of floppy disks back in the 1990's and in my opinion this years update on the Song Picker has to be one of worst changes I have seen in the past 20+ years. I absolutely hate it. PGMUSIC has the opportunity to redeem itself by going back to the 2018 version of Song Picker. Keep everything else that came out in 2019 but please get rid it this abomination!

If you can't do that for your loyal user base, at least give us the following back:

1. The ability to sort on the columns.
2. The ability to remember the last used directory instead of defaulting to this thing called the "home folder".

So +1 for the yes.

Please read ALL the comments about the SongPicker, not just the above.
I, for one, MUST have the feature back that plays the song when you click (or was is double click) on it.

Tony, I also agree. Double clicking on the song only loads it, it does not start the playback like it used to.

I'll take any version that can sort by columns. Its ridiculous that column sorting has been disabled. I don't like this "new feature" at all!

Yes. Absolutely! I have sent emails about this to Pgmusic. My main issues is that I want the ability in songpicker to type the first letter of a song and have it jump to the first song that begins with that letter. Like it used to! Playing live it cuts down on finding the next song greatly. Otherwise it's....scroll, scroll, scroll! It sucks! I have been told they ate aware of the problem.That was 3 builds ago!!!
Unlike some on here I am able to double click a song and it will start. Plus with all the crap at the bottom of the page there are fewer songs displayed. Bring back the old one or give me the ability to use the old one!

BTW if you know the name, or part of it, select any folder or couple of folders, and type it in: the find function works fine.

What I am seeing in the Song Picker is a Filter Function not a Find Function.

I think it now behaves differently for those of us who have selected "pause play until midi or key received" in the options. With the old version a double click on a song would load the song which would play as soon as I touched my keyboard. Now I have to do a second double click on the bar I want to start from before the song will play in response to my keyboard's first note.

Yes! !!! I don't understand why it was changed. Most aggravating.

I just read through all the posts previous to mine. It is unanimous. Bring it back!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Holiday Hours

Monday, October 14th is Canadian Thanksgiving!

Our Holiday schedule that day is:
Customer Service: 8:00AM to 4:00PM PDT
Technical Support: Closed

We will be back to our regular schedule Tuesday, October 15th.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
