I can’t seem to get half time to work on Realdrums within RealBand.

poltad,

Welcome to the forum and to RealBand!

Please provide a little more information.

What version of RealBand are you using? For example I have 2019 RB build 3.

What tempo is your song project?

What RealDrums do you want to use?

Are you selecting the RealDrums using the RealDrums Picker or is the RealDrums one instrument in a style?

Did you import a song project file, SGU or MGU, you started in Band-in-a-Box or is the song project all in RealBand up to this point?

What tempo is your song project? 250

What RealDrums do you want to use? Any of the Train Brush RealDrums

Are you selecting the RealDrums using the RealDrums Picker or is the RealDrums one instrument in a style? I think I’ve tried both ways

Did you import a song project file, SGU or MGU, you started in Band-in-a-Box or is the song project all in RealBand up to this point? I’ve attempted both ways and it just plays the drum part in hyper speed. The half-time works in the stand alone BIAB.

poltad,

Thanks for answering my questions. I appreciate your patience.

Have you tried using "CountryTrain8"? It's meant for use in normal time between tempos of 200 to 290 bpm. Based on the description, reprinted below, I suspect the timebase has already been shifted.

Quote:
A fast Train groove on the snare drum, using brushes for the 'A' section and sticks for the 'B' section. Designed so that it will work with 8th-note based Band-in-a-Box styles, but uses the same audio source as CountryTrain.
Note in the screen shot below that "CountryTrain" audio is sixteenth note based while "CountryTrain8" is eighth note based.

Also, looking at the DrumPicker if you see an "X" in the column named "X" the DrumPicker is telling you the style won't work. From the RealBand manual:
Quote:
X indicates a style with a tempo that is out of range for the song.

Description: CountryTrain8 tempo 200 - 290 bpm.

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.
