Dear Sir,
I purchased BIAB a few months ago.
Windows version 2018.

Opened up the book and it talks about and the new features including "Video Realtracks"

I tried for over 2 hours trying figure out how to use Video Realtracks without any luck.

I then went into your forum and searched and found nothing about where they are in the program.

I finally did a general google search and discovered that they are an additional purchase.

Ok thats fine but on page 20 in the summary of new features in your book it mentions nothing about purchasing. I wasted two hours trying to figure out what the hell is going on and why they dont show up in the style browser.

You guys should mention that up front in the summary of new feature but you do not.

Supposedly you get a free Video Realtrack when purchasing the 2018 version or something like that but I guess I missed out somehow.

Anyway I do like your program but not your write ups and some of the info in your manual.

best regards,

Dennie, welcome to the forum. When you say you bought BIAB 2018 "a few months ago", I was wondering if that was November 1, 2018 or after?

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
