jford,


Here is what I posted a couple of days ago. Does this answer your question about me having it or not. I will look at what have said about turning off the filtering.

__________________________________________________________________

VideoTrack

OK I overwrote BIAB. All 7 discs. I opened up BIAB and clicked on the STYLES button. The style window opens and I put in at the top on the filter line _SWOON It pops up. I tried another style that had gone missing _SKYLAKE. It pops up. Great problem solved.

I do a rebuild as the header said I should. When rebuild is finished I look for _SWOON and _ SKYLAKE by putting each in the filter window. They are not there.

__________________________________________________________________

QUESTION

When I put into the computer the discs for the 2019 upgrade, does the upgrade consist of only the stuff that has been added since 2014 or does the upgrade consist of a total 2019 BIAB package and they are overwriting the 2014 stuff?

Bill

I had done a slow rebuild

Yes I did your suggestions. I searched for M and R and also third party styles of which I have some. It found all 3 kinds but not _SWOON or any of the other missing ones

I search C: for _SWOON and another _SKYLAKE but found nothing

If I open bb\STYLES, I cant find _SWOON there either so I dont think it is in the computer. I am about ready to reinstall all 7 CDs again just to get back the missing .STY s back.

QUESTION
When you do a slow rebuild does BIAB look for .STY just in BIAB or the whole computer?

So what your are saying is that BIAB will list all kinds of .STYs whether or not they gave it to you in a Pak. They will just put N/A in front of the style. [N/A] [R/T n/a] _SWOON 12-8 country

That's exactly what I'm saying.

When you say you initially saw it in the StylePicker list, did you actually try to load and use it?

jford,

So I just played the demo for SWOON but when I click OK it doesn't put it in to the song style window, I will have to say I probably didn't actually put them into the song and play them. So just because there is a demo doesn't mean there is a RT. Doesn't make sense to me but I am not a software developer.

Just to satisfy myself I am going to overwrite the 7 dics again to see what happens.

Thanks for hanging in there and for everyone's time that I used up.

I'll be back with the results.

Then I can post a new question with my next problem!!!

Bill

jford and others,

Ok I overwrote the 2019 upgrade program and it works as you said and so for sure I didn't run the style in the song. I went thru various searches before and after I did a slow rebuild and now I understand how this works

Also I figured out my other problem.

Thanks to everyone who took their time to work on this

Bill

Glad you got it sorted.

The demos are just already recorded audio files that are either loaded from your hard drive (if present) or streamed from the internet (if not present).

If you like the program, I would think about upgrading to the UltraPak, but I would wait until this December when the new version generally comes out with everything on sale. If you buy all the XTRA style paks to it also (usually sold separately), you will have almost everything available BIAB-wise (minus a few minor things that have been made available separately over the years).

Thanks for the info on the ULTRAPak. I was already thinking and looking into an upgrade.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
