I have already successfully installed my upgrade from 2018 to 2019. Problem is, when I audition styles, there is no sound at all. But when I play my existing projects, there is sound. What should I do or check?

This is what I noticed now: When the style being auditioned is in /Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks/Data/Style Demos, I don't hear any sound. When it's from http://demos.pgmusic/audio/allstyledemos2, there is sound and even if I go offline, it still plays.

I also saw a tip in the yellow status box saying "Tip: Press > button to toggle between MIDI and Realdrums". But I can't find any ">" button at the current window.

That's strange. When this happens (no sound), do you see the little time indicator moving from left to right, or is nothing happening at all.

The ">" button only appears next to the Play/Stop controls when auditioning a MIDI style, since it toggles between an audio demo with MIDI drums and one using RealDrums.

I have all the audio setup correctly and the volume controls at the right level. Even when I play my existing projects, no problem with the audio.

Thanks

The slider does not move.

I also noticed that the folder icon before the speaker icon is disabled. This could be the reason. But I don't know how to enable it.

This might be kind of a longshot, but if you hilight the "/Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks/Data/Style Demos Audio" folder in the Finder and do "Get Info..." on it, what are the permissions set to ?

I have had problems in the past with permissions on the audio folders preventing me from playing the audio.
I will include a screenshot of mine below, and you will note that I have given my account read/write access to the folder.

If you are willing to try, it is easy enough to add your account to the folder with read/write access, then click the gear icon and select "apply to enclosed items".

That has fixed similar problems for me in the past.
Hopefully this helps.

- Jay

Hi JayO,

I checked that in the past and all rights are okay.

I think I solved the problem already. I just reinstalled the MIDI & Audio Plugins again and it seems to work. I'll observed further. But for now, I think it's already okay.

Thanks!

How to: Using Playable RealTracks in the Notation Window of Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Windows

With the release of Band-in-a-Box 2022, we added Playable RealTracks! These allows you to add MIDI notes to the same RealTrack that is playing, either at the same time, or alternating back and forth. This means you can get the RealTracks to play the notes you want at key parts of the performance, either augmenting or replacing what the RealTracks is playing, for the section you want to change.

See how to use and edit these in the Notation Window with our video, Using Playable RealTracks in the Notation Window of Band-in-a-Box®
