Hello to everyone!
I just purchased Band in a Box 2019 yesterday, and am slowly going through the user manual trying to figure out the features.

I figure that I will have lots of questions about the software in the future, so I would stop by the forums and say hello.

I don't have any specific concerns or issues right now, with the exception that a 64bit VST plugin (Tube Delay) causes the program to crash every time I attempt to use it. Not a huge deal, just an annoyance.

Anyway, hello again to everybody.

Welcome to the forum!

BIAB comes with two versions, a 32-bit one and a 64-bit one. Do you know which you are running? If you need help knowing which is which, let us know. It sounds like you might be running the 32-bit BIAB and using a 64-bit-only plugin?

Greetings Noel1983,

Welcome to Band-in-a-Box and to the forum. I hope you are enjoying the program and the forum.

When you do ask a question it helps us to know some basic information about your computer system like the operating system, cpu, ram and storage space. It also helps to know which Band-in-a-Box package you purchased.

May I suggest you navigate to My Stuff > Edit Profile; then scroll down the webpage until you reach the Signature Text Box. You can enter any text you desire and change the text as often as you like.

Placing the computer specs and Band-in-a-Box (BiaB) package information in your signature saves us from asking for the information and you from having to provide the information multiple times.

I am using the 64 bit version.

I am not married to that Tube Delay, I don't even remember where I picked it up. It either came free with my FocusRite Audio interface, or was free from Plugin Boutique.

Personally, I never use any plugins in BB or RB. I use all plugs in my DAW, Sonar.

Crashes are normally from conflicts of one sort or another.

I write in BB, render audio tracks in RB and mix in X1

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
