Hi guys,
I have bought BB 2019 for Windows and I have a problem when recording audio. The first time I open the program and record my audio everthing is fine but if I make a mistake and kill the audio track and record a new take then the audio is offset when playing it back. The audio is push in time a mesure or so. The only way that I can avoid this is by killing the audio track, save the song, exit the program and reload the program to record another take.
This is very annoying, is there a patch that I need to install to fix this?
Thanks,
Robert

What do you have your audio settings - Audio driver type set at?

AISO or MME?

Also are you up to date with your BIAB patches? Currently it is patch 628.

Band-in-a-Box shifts existing audio two bars in the song project timeline to accommodate the two bar count-in. Band-in-a-Box only has one audio track for recording and playback.

I do not consider Band-in-a-Box to be the most user friendly digital recorder available. May I suggest prior to recording that you freeze your existing tracks, save your project and then record with RealBand. RealBand is a much more user friendly program to use as a recorder. It will open open song project files, generate your existing tracks and provide you with a much better recording experience.

BTW RobSerry, you would have received Realband with your 2019 BiaB purchase. So no investment needed other than the time to check it out.

RobSerry, welcome to the forum. It's easy to sync audio after it's been imported into BIAB either by recording live or importing an existing audio track. The process is the same for any audio track.


Open the Audio Editor (click on the Audio Editor radio button or Ctrl Shift A or Audio\Audio Edit Window )

Place your curser at the very beginning of the first beat of bar one - This will place a curser line

Right click your mouse and a menu will open

Select Mark this point as Bar 1 of the song

Start the song from the beginning to confirm the audio is properly synced with the BIAB generated tracks.

If not, repeat the mark selection to set the mark correctly

With the audio properly synced, Right click again and select Permanently apply Bar 1 offset to track by deleting or inserting silence

EDIT: Just click ok to whether this edit adds silence or deletes it when that message appears.

Save your project and continue to work on your song.

Hi guys,
I have installed the latest patch and tried all of your suggestions but unfortunately I'm still having the same problem.

When I open a song and record audio, the audio is perfectly in synced with my song. If I delete the audio (kill the audio) and record another take, the audio is not in synced anymore with the song. The audio start a beat late. The only way that I can avoid this is, delete the audio, save the song, close BIAB, re-open BIAB then record one more time. I hope someone knows how to fix this.
Thanks,
Robert

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

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.
