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

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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
