Hello,

I haven't come across someone attempting this before, so I am not aware of an export setting made for this, but I'll ask some colleagues and get back to you.

In the meantime, I think I've come up with a pretty good method.

It involves totally destroying most of your hard work and then undoing it, which can be a little scary, so it's not for the faint of heart.

So, open the Song Form Dialogue (in the Tools section). Let's imagine you just want to export bars 9 to 12. In the first unused section (A if you aren't using sections), under Bar #, you'd put 9, and under # of Bars you'd put 4. That would make section A consist of bars 9 to 12. Then in the form section at the bottom of that window, just input A, and click Ok- Generate form. Now your song is just those bars in section A and everything else has been deleted. AAAAH! It's ok, we can undo that after we export.

Export your song as a WAV file, and once it's done, hit undo (ctl-z on PC, command-z on Mac). That will undo the change to the song form and revert it back to its original form, bringing back all that stuff you lost. Repeat as necessary.

I hope that works for you, and I'll get back to you when I find out more.

Thanks David - PG Music ,

Glad to see people working to make this great program, even more useful.

This does sound a bit radical, I will gladly study it. Anyone
else verified it working yet?

Appreciate the response!

I consulted with some colleagues, and it turns out there is a WAY simpler method of doing this.

If you have a range of bars selected (shift+click to select multiple) when you are exporting, it will only export those selected bars. You'll know they're selected if they're highlighted in black.

So it was pretty fun getting creative to solve that issue in a weird way, but it was also totally unnecessary. Oh well, it's not about the destination, it't about the lessons we learn along the way, right?

Cheers

Hi David,

Is this Realband or BIAB? I cannot use shift+click nor ctrl+click on the BIAB chordsheet. (It could be that I'm doing something wrong.)

Regards,
Noel

Thanks, Trev. I misread David's post. I interpreted "multiple" and "range of bars" as two different things not the same. For example: select bars 5 to 8 and then, while keeping these selected, select bars 17 to 22.

Ahhh, I see. Yes, I hadn't thought of that, but re-reading, it was certainly possible to interpret it that way.
(I was also a little surprised that you couldn't do it blush blush blush. Silly me <ha ha> )

Yes. It's working for me.

I highlight a section of bars ie: 5-8

from the WAV tool bar at the top of the screen, click the drop down arrow

click: Export song as Audio File

My Export file settings are 44.1, 16 bit Wav

For your second question
To me the safest workaround would be exporting the whole thing as an audio file, then trimming that as needed ..
but as others mentioned, in recent versions you should be able to accomplish this.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
