#537615 - 05/22/19 12:07 AM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] Sustained note plays through entire track when playing [Update] [Resolved]

Hey all,

This is driving me up the wall :-(

Whenever I play a MIDI style, or sometimes even a song/demo with a single MIDI track, I will get a random note that starts on count-in and sustains through the entire duration of the track.

If anyone could help me with this I would very much appreciate it!

P.S. I have BiaB 2019 (whatever the full one is called these days, but not the audiophile) with all latest patches/updates installed.

Update: First let me say that I had tried the MIDI Panic thing before initially posting this without success.

A few more things have since popped up which may help narrow things down (and I will paste this in the OP, for the newcomers who are reading from the top).

1. It's not just MIDI styles, or even files/sings with a single MIDI track I have this problem with. RTs are now having a audio note from one the random tracks sustaining throughout even where no MIDI is present at all.

2. (and this one is the oddest). I found that if I mute and unmute the melody track in the mixer panel the note immediately disappears--this is regardless of whether or not that slot is actually populated with a track(!)

So, in short, it appears that this is not a MIDI thing, and I'm getting a strange hunch that this may be a driver thing? I just updated all my drivers yesterday, so I have no idea why I'm getting this hunch in the first place...

Anyway, thanks again for all the kind offers of assistance!

Edit 2: Got weirder, adding to clip showing the glitch in action:

Hi
This is odd, normally caused by sending midi note on but no midi note off as in overlapping midi notes of the same pitch therefore keeping the first note on.
Can be most often caused by corrupt midi file or data stream sent to the synth.

Cant see that being your prob with BIAB stuff, but could be a prob with 3rd party midi files.
PS. can you clear it with Midi panic (shut off all midi notes) under the midi icon?

Mike

This happened during beta testing, but was fixed (I know because I experienced it). I would freeze a file that does it and send it to support with a reference to this thread.

What are you using for your MIDI sound? Have you tried changing it to something else to see if it could be related to your MIDI sound source?

In case you ever need it, go to http://www.nortonmusic.com/midi_cc.html (list of MIDI continuous controllers) and scroll down to continuous controllers 120 through 123 - you can turn all sounds, notes, and continuous controllers off with a MIDI message.

I've noticed that sometimes two overlapping notes on the same pitch, one shorter than the other might trigger a stuck note. A look at a MIDI event list might make it easy to spot the double. If you recognize the pitch and can figure out what bar it starts on, you can transpose one of the notes, shorten the offender and then re-transpose the note back to its correct pitch.

Also if this happens again stop the playback and look at the track in the piano roll view (PRV). If it is a MIDI track problem there may be one long note throughout the track. Also look for overlapping same notes as has been suggested.

As John said what sound source are you using? If the polyphony setting is lower that the number of notes being sent to it it may be missing the end of a note.

If it’s in the song, go to the Melody or Soloist track and do a Step Edit. You’ll see one note with an unusually long length.

You might also mute each track to see if it is in one of the BIAB tracks.

Deaconblue,

Mike mentions "Panic". The shortcut for this is F12.

I haven't used BIAB with MIDI for a while but the problem you mention seems similar to the one that I experienced earlier this year when I was writing a melody. Every once in a while, a midi note started playing and would not stop until I pressed F12. Then, after I'd enter a few more notes, the problem would start again.

Curiously, the above happened on BIAB64. When I switched to BIAB32, everything worked fine so I finished my song using BIAB32. Have you tried both BIABs?

Regards,
Noel

Thanks for all the input guys,

I have a bit of an update, but first let me say that I had tried the MIDI Panic thing before initially posting this without success.

That is weird!

Can you try selecting the Silence track for the Melody Track and then regenerate:

Yes... very strange indeed.

Did you try returning to factory settings?

Also, does this happen when (a) you change audio drivers (say ASIO to MME, etc.) and (b) if you change to a different softsynth?

Lastly, as mentioned in my post above, does this happen with BIAB 32-bit as well?

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel,

1. Tried resetting to factory settings.

2. Audio driver always on MME

3. Never changed default Softsynth (although I loaded audio and MIDI plugins/VST(i)s at times...and does not seem to be related).

4. Tried the 32 bit thing, and it GETS WEIRDER. With the 32 bit, both on songs or demos that all audio, all MIDI or mixed, there is a "chirp" that sounds like a MIDI GM-type distorted electric guitar that plays as a single "shot" at the first beat of the count in.

Oh, I also think I should note that this does not appear every time a replay or regenerate something. More like 80-85 percent of the time

A couple of additional thoughts...

1. Are you running the latest update? We're currently up to 628.

https://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm

2. If this problem has appeared after installing the latest update, try download a previous update, install that (it will overwrite the latest update) and see if that makes a difference.

Also, in this instance this is something I'd try, the ultimate factory reset is to go into "bb\Preferences" and rename "MySetup.DK" and "intrface.bbw" to something like "MySetup.DK.old" and "intrface.bbw.old". This effectively deletes them and forces BIAB to make new versions of these files. (By renaming them, it's possible to get them back if needed.)

Regards,
Noel

Well I'll be gobsmacked!

I was on update version 625, which is crazy cuz I'm usually obsessive about running the update checker utility.

Updating now, and will post, er..., update, lol

Well, that was an odd one.

When Noel asked if I was using the latest update, I almost took offense at the notion that I would post this whole thread and try a million different troubleshooting options without even making sure I had the latest patch...but there you have it. I updated it and it works.

Thanks Noel!

As an addendum, to take a stab at what may have been an issue (beucuse I never had this issue prior, and this was not an issue cited as fixed in the patch notes) I confirmed that I had installed the RealTrack patch which was issued at a later date than the v625 I was running the core program on, so maybe there was some sort of conflict there? Who knows?

All's well that ends well, as they say :-)

Thanks again to Noel, and all the rest of you, for your patience and assistance!

Very interesting. The theory that a later RealTracks update installed on an earlier build caused the problem makes sense. It would explain why this problem was not widespread.

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.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

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.
