I really should remember this - but I cant! blush
There is a toggle "somewhere" to turn off or on the RealDrums cymbal crash that occurs on SHot and Hold (X... or X..)chords.
Its not AFAIK in Options-Prefs -RealDrums
I turned it off at some point and now I'd like it back please - but WHERE is it! lol!! crazy
Cheers
ian

There are a few things that might work:

Hi Jazzman and Trev
Many thanks guys
Quite so - its in "Arrange" not in "RealDrums".
Brain Fade, I guess.
"First bar of CHORUS gets a drum cymbal crash" - its actually every time you change or add a Part Marker. As all my SGUs are 'unfolded' to ONE long Chorus, if it were as described, I'd only get one at the start.
BTW - It doesnt cymbal crash on both if you put, say, 2 part markers together - to get a 2 bar drum fill. Well, it doesnt when I do it. lol!

Good points.

Possibly related, on the more recent versions of BIAB, you can control the part markers and fills separately. VideoTrack showed this above in the second screen shot. I don't actually know what effect that might have on a cymbal crash.

I did uncheck that checkbox about a crash on the first bar of the first chorus.

Not sure the MIDI Push Velocity has any effect on RealDrums?

Hi Ian,

Here's another option to try:

Use the Simple button to select the Drums track, and if the Drums track has been set to be simple, the Drum track plays using a more basic arrangement, and is not supposed to play fills or post fills which should include cymbal crashes. Maybe yours could be set to Simple there?

Hi Trev
Thanks for the extra thought. It wasn't that smile
It was the Prefs-Arrange toggle.
I have used the 'simple' RD toggle a few times and its a very useful feature if you want a drum track thats more in the background as it were.
BTW - your GUI looks different. Was it 'customised' by you?
Ian

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
