RealTracks parts are not editable. You only can edit corresponding MIDI SuperTracks parts.

Best regards,

I'd like to expand on this a bit (perhaps Mikhail can translate),

RealTracks cannot be edited in the same way that MIDI tracks can be. With MIDI, you can open the Notation window and edit any of the individual notes (change the pitch etc.). If you don't regenerate the arrangement (i.e. the track is frozen) or if you are editing the Melody or Soloist track then when you play it back it will play the new notes. This is because with MIDI data, Band-in-a-Box is sending the MIDI event data to a synthesizer that generates the audio and plays the notes.

A track with RealTracks on the other hand is audio (wave) data that is assembled from actual audio recordings of musicians. You may still be able to SEE the notes in the notation window (or Piano roll), but you can't change them. You can see them because some RealTracks have "RealCharts", which means that the performances have been manually transcribed as MIDI so that the notation can be displayed.

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve (what types of edits you want to do), but there are a couple things you can do. It is best to do this in a DAW (e.g. RealBand which ships with Band-in-a-Box), or another DAW using the Band-in-a-Box plugin if you have version 2019. RealBand (and also the DAW plugin) has a "multi-riffs" feature which allows you to regenerate a specified region of a track, and choose from several different generations. You can save your song (.SGU) and open it with RealBand. This is handy if you mostly like the generated part, but there are a few bars that don't sound good.

There are also ways you can edit the audio waveform data to some extent, for example copying/deleting certain sections. You can even change the pitch with some DAWs, but you can't necessarily edit individual note pitches unless it was a truly monophonic recording (one note at a time).

Перевод сообщения Эндрю:

"Я бы хотел немоного развернуть эту тему.

RealTracks нельзя отредактировать таким же образом, каким можно редактировать MIDI-дорожки.
В случае MIDI Вы можете открыть окно нотации и отредактировать любую отдельную ноту (изменить ее высоту и др.). Если Вы не будете генерировать дорожку заново (т.е., дорожка заморожена), либо если Вы редактируете дорожку мелодии или солиста, то при воспроизведении Вы услышите отредактированные ноты. Это возможно благодаря тому, что при использовании MIDI-данных Band-in-a-Box посылает данные о MIDI-событиях на синтезатор, который генерирует аудио и восрпоизводит ноты.

Дорожка с RealTracks, с другой стороны, представляет собой аудиоданные (wav), которые формируются из реальных аудиозаписей игры музыкантов. Вы по-прежнему можете ВИДЕТЬ ноты в окне нотации (или клавишного редактора), но Вы не можете изменять их. Видеть их Вы можете потому, что у некоторых RealTracks имеется нотация "RealCharts", что означает, что исполнение было вручную транскрибировано в MIDI, с тем чтобы можно было отобразить нотацию.

Я не знаю, чего Вы хотите добиться в результате (какие исправления Вы хотите внести), но кое-что сделать можно. Лучше всего делать это в DAW, н-р, в RealBand, поставляемом в комплекте с Band-in-a-Box, либо в другой DAW, поддерживающей модуль Band-in-a-Box (если вы используете версию 2019). RealBand (а также моджуль DAW) поддерживают "мульти-риффы", что позволяет Вам произвести несколько повторных генераций определенной области дорожки и выбрать наиболее удачный вариант.
Вы можете сохранить Вашу композицию (.SGU) и открыть ее в RealBand. Это может оказаться полезным, если Вам в принципе нравится сгенерированная партия, но в ней есть несколько тактов, которые звучат недостаточно хорошо.

Существует также несколько способов, позволяющих Вам до определенной степени изменять имеющиеся аудиоданные, например, копирование/удаление определенных секций. С помощью некоторых DAW Вы даже можете изменять высоту тона, но высоту тона отдельных нот Вы сможете отредактировать только в в том случае, если они были записаны в монофоническом режиме (по одной ноте за раз).

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® 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".


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.
