I think I may have seen some bass real tracks that do what you are asking, but I couldn't find them if I looked. Maybe other know or know how to narrow the search.

You might look into the "chord settings" and select pedal bass (lower left) and make your selection for the number of bars that chord is playing. With this method you'd have to repeat the process at every chord change, but not (necessarily) every bar.

You might also have some luck with "slash" chords. There is a setting that will force only the bass to play the slash note.

In addition to Tangmo's suggestions you can look for a realtrack bass part that has a "simpler" version available and check the "Simpler" box:

If you want MIDI styles, it's easy to do in the StyleMaker. The beauty of MIDI is that you can do millions of things with it that you can't do with Audio. The downside of course is that if you want it to sound as good as the Audio loops you have to spend a few bucks on a decent synthesizer module.

Hi Montxo,

I don't know what version of BIAB that you have so you may or may not have the below Realtracks. The ones below are worth checking. They might do what you want.

2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085
2475: Bass, Acoustic, HeldSimple Ev 085
2476: Bass, Acoustic, Held Sw 085
2477: Bass, Acoustic, HeldSimple Sw 085
2478: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 110
2479: Bass, Acoustic, HeldSimple Ev 110
2480: Bass, Acoustic, Held Sw 110
2481: Bass, Acoustic, HeldSimple Sw 110

Regards,
Noel

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.
