I've done a little chord sequence with a realtracks sax solo - 16 bars repeated 4 times. It has put the solo over all 64 bars but I only want it in the middle 32. How do I clear out the first and last 16 bars without having to click and delete each single note?

You have a few options, but, tbh, the simplest way to do it would be via the bar settings (F5) and mute, and unmute at the relevant measures.

Hmm ... thanks but that seems a poor ... maybe they'll correct it in future releases but that seems quite a basic feature that is missing in a product as mature as BiaB.Thanks anyway smile

Hi,
Did you try the option that DeaconBlues suggested?
It's quite easy to implement, it would take less than one minute to undertake.
There's no need to delete any notes.
I can't think of an easier or quicker way.

There is a quicker easier way. Real Band. When you want a solo in RB you simply swipe the part of the track you want to generate, if it's 24 bars that's what you get, 24 bars. What I like to do with solos in RB is to generate them on several different tracks so I can cut/paste the parts I really like into one final track, then delete the original "working" tracks. If someone isn't familiar with RB, it has 48 tracks to work with.

The reason I don't like the way Biab handles solos is the generation times. I've tested this in the past, adding a solo track to a song increases the generation time by a lot. Way more than simply adding a regular instrument track. That means when Biab generates the entire song with a solo when you only want 24 bars you're being forced to wait that much longer when you're testing different stuff. Change one chord and regen and you're waiting for that entire solo to generate even if you did mute the bars you didn't want.

RB does 95% of what Biab can do plus a whole lot more. If you need that 5% then generate it in Biab and open it in RB.

It's not a missing feature. Using the Soloist feature or alternately the Melodist feature has been around for a long time and they give you many options to when, where and how your Solo will play and when and where it plays. The same applies to the Melodist. They operate identically.

Generating the entire Soloist track us just a fast and simple way to create your Solo Track.

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.
