My behringer audio interface has it's own asio drivers that work fine but when i plug my midi keyboard into the usb port i have to use the creative asio drivers which are a bit unreliable.
wsa drivers would give me low latency and reliable drivers without having to power up and plug in other hardware

+1

Ulterior motive for supporting this wishlist request. I looked at 2018 RealBand audio drivers and WAS drivers are not supported in RealBand either so I'm hoping when PowerTracks Pro gains WAS driver support RealBand will also. grin

Windows Audio System drivers are indeed now in RealBand 2018.
I have moved to RB from PTW after installing a midi controller keyboard.

Garth Bird,

Interesting. I'm using 2018 build 4 RealBand and mine does not offer the WAS audio option even though Band-in-a-Box does.

Could PG Music released more than one build 4? YES THEY DID!

I downloaded and installed the patch and the (hidden) release number incremented from 0 to 1.

Another place to look at the 2018 PowerTracks Pro feature list is +++ HERE +++ !

Question: Can anyone expand on this feature?

Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTi plugins that support this is now implemented.

Hi Jim,

Some VST plugins can have audio or MIDI dragged and dropped into their control panels, and the Drop Station now allows you to drag and drop into these plugins, rather than just into other applications.

Thanks

I'm curious: Why does everyone here want WAS drivers? Have you tried the ASIO? If you don't have an ASIO driver, there's a program call ASIO4ALL that will give you a virtual ASIO driver, and it's quite good. Really gets the latency down.

Just wondering.

WAS drivers are supported; however, WAS drivers don't necessarily work with every audio interface (there's a whole long thread on that on the forum).

Another benefit of WAS is it has two operation modes that some programs allow the user to select, normal and exclusive. Normal operation allows multiple program to share use of the device audio stream. Exclusive operation restricts use of the device audio stream to one program and is similar to the way ASIO operates.

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.
