#604206 - 06/28/20 01:20 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] Extra "click" or "rim strike" or "pop" at end of song

I'm a newbie, but have been able to make some pretty good backing tracks for a jazz guitarist. One very minor problem is that in some songs, after the ending--which is often one bar longer than I would want--there is the sound of a metronome click or a drum rim strike or something like that. Does anybody else have this problem? Is there any way to get rid of it? Thank you!

That sounds a lot like an old problem which was very commonly reported in the past. What version of BIAB are you running. Then if you can tell us exactly the style contents of your song we can see if it can be repeated on a different machine/setup.

Thanks for the quick reply. Apparently my problem is inconsistent, as I cannot reproduce it on the 4 songs I was playing earlier. I am running BIAB 2020/64 Win (722). I will get back to you once I figure out which song (and style) showed the problem.

Keep you setup and configuration simple so that in the event things act strangely and inconsistently, you can hit the "return to factory settings" button. This cures a myriad of ailments.

Do you have looping set on for this song?

What kind of ending? 2-bar? 4-bar? Tag?

I have this problem on one system. It has a Kedron SD2 as the MIDI output device. BiaB definitely produces a Rim Shot (Side-stick) after the end of the song, and this is clearly reflected in the BiaB mixer VU meter display. BiaB also regularly misses the first beat of the 2-bar count-in with this setup in place.

If I change to use a VSTi instead of the hardware MIDI, the problem is 'more-or-less' resolved (sometimes there might be a slight hint of an unexpected note). However, this occurs on a RealDrums track, no MIDI is understood to be involved.

I have reported this to PG Music including a video/audio clip of the issue showing the hit coming from BiaB Drum Track on the mixer display, but it has never been resolved.

Have a look at this post also.

Okay, MusicStudent, here's the deal: I am running BIAB 2020/64 Win (722), and although the problem seems to be inconsistent, it showed up with _JAZZSWP.STY. I appreciate your help in trying to get things sorted out!

I listened to both demo songs and did not hear the artifact. But as said, others have reported this illusive artifact you describe in the past with no confirmed fix other than to remove it in the DAW.

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
