Is there a way to regenerate just a couple measures of a solo, or of a RealTrack accompaniment part?

Yes but it's not intuitive. By design and default, BIAB generates an entire track and regenerates the entire track.

In a situation like you describe, if you're happy with all of your solo except two bars, regeneration still does the entire track. If you have a Windows version of BIAB, your program will include another program called RealBand, which is a DAW and you can save and open your file in RealBand and generate just the two measures of your solo.


If you don't have RealBand, it can also be done in any other DAW but there are more steps involved.


It can be done in BIAB but again, additional steps that are a bit complicated are involved as well as having at least one free channel in the mixer.

Right, you would need two tracks. Freeze one, and use the other to regenerate until you get the two bars you like. Then use F5 to mute the appropriate places on each track.

Absolutely yes, use the VST plugin +++ VST Plugin Sales Page +++ and +++ VST Plugin Support Page +++

As mentioned on the support page the VST plugin has three pages to support three different track types. Page 1 is named Style, page 2 is named Single/Special and page 3 is named Multi-Riffs.

Quote:
The first page is used for Style tracks and will be the default page when there are no tracks (or only style tracks) selected. The second page is used for single tracks like RealTracks, UserTracks, Loops, MIDI SuperTracks, RealDrums, MIDI Soloist, and MIDI Harmony for a MIDI Melody. The third page is used for multi-riff tracks. Note: The second and third pages will become visible only if they contain a track. Otherwise, the track table view will default to the first page for style tracks.


Multi-riff is a feature first presented in RealBand. Highlight to select the bars you want to regenerate, select regenerate and seven variations are generated with each residing on its own track.

This is a popular item in the BIAB Wishlist Forum, to be able to stay in BIAB and do it easily like in RealBand.
