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.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
