Hello,

when I try to build styles where I mix Real Track with "Select Custom MIDI style for this track" - I encounter that 3 out 4 times the MIDI style chosen is not the actual MIDI instrument being chosen by BIAB to perform the playback on the track?

Here is an example - I am working on the style _CMPFMDF.STY Campfire Medium, where I want to add a MIDI 43:Cello from the style THUNDER.STY,(the 2nd track, named Piano) but when I click generate BIAB will play a MIDI 19:Rock Organ.

I can't figure out, which setting I need to change to make it stop changing my MIDI instrument.

Anyone know how to fix this - I use BIAB 2020 for Mac

It's just keeping the patch that was originally assigned to the track. When you choose the style (i.e. Thunder.sty) from the StylePicker, look at the little mixer display at the bottom to see what patch it is using (pad slow). You can select this patch in your song.

Hi Andrew,

thank you for clarifying.

Would it be hard to change, so you can select and change MIDI tracks freely the same way you can do with Real Tracks?

That way you have the same logic for changing and building you own styles in a very flexible way....ok ok ok! Just because I would love that feature doesn't off course mean, that it is a good idea :-)

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
