I just upgraded from 2014 to the 2019 MegaPak. When I play a song from my 2014 version the beat of the music is not at the same time as the black bar that moves as the chords play. The music plays and then the bar moves to the chord about 1/3 second later. I have not tried making a new song yet to see what it does. Thanks Bill

Hi. There are several possibilities here. First, I don’t think it’s related to the song file being from 2014. I routinely open files from as far back as the early 90s.

The audio driver is the first place I would look. BIAB 2018 and after default to the WAS driver, and I would try changing that to MME or ASIO, whichever worked before in your 2014 version.

If that isn’t it, consider checking for updates to your video drivers, though this is less likely to be the cause, as BIAB does not stress the video system.

Well Matt, Thanks for the guidance. I didn't think it was the 2014 songs really. After I posted I put in a new 4 bars and ran it and it was still doing it in the new 2019 version. What you said to look at was really way above my level of knowledge but the words audio driver caught my eye. I looked in help for audio driver and started to read about it, couldn't find MME or ASIO but I did find the word latency which I thought might be relevent and then found a link for MIDI driver Wizard. Opened that but didn't understand a thing about the options I was given but I clicked OK and darned if that wasn't it. My sample song works ok and my 2014 song is right on the money with the sheet chords and music being right in sync.
So thanks for the help. I hate to upgrade programs because this always happens.

Bill

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

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.
