In RB there is an Options - Resolution setting.
Simply put, setting this to as high as your computer can comfortably handle allows more accurate edits.

The four images below are audio, but technically it also allows more accurate MIDI edits.

These first 2 images below show my allowed starting point for my selection using the default 120 resolution setting; I can't grab the start point of the audio exactly where I want to (the arrow shows the desired start point).
The second 2 images show the accuracy of changing from a resolution of 120 to a resolution of 3840.
The last (4th) image is zoomed in to show that it even makes a difference on how much you can zoom in on a track to edit it when you increase the resolution. At 120 you can't zoom in this close at all.

Thought I'd share in case it helps others.

I did not know this setting had any effect besides MIDI. Thanks for the tip.

Yeah, this setting is important during audio editing also, especially when you need to be a bit more surgical/exacting.

Glad it helped.

This is a VERY useful RealBand tip because the setting is so easily misunderstood or overlooked.

Misunderstood because most users would think Resolution is a MIDI only setting and does not apply to audio. Overlooked for the same reason.

In my forum responses I frequently suggest users change Resolution. I try to remember to credit rharv for the initial inspiration.

The only downside is that it makes the math a little more complicated for some things (like working with delay units that use milliseconds or working in odd times), which is why I created this handy 'music calculator' -

/if you find it useful and there are more features you'd like added, just let me know!

Thanks, rharv. Like Matt, I was unaware that this affected audio, too.

This is very useful information.

Regards,
Noel

Good on you for posting this here!

As I mentioned in my post-2019-release rant, the ability to change resolutions in RB is one of my favorite things about this year's updates...and I barely even use RB!

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® 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.
