I hesitate to raise such a mundane matter, having glanced at other recent posts.......
I'm gradually using RealBand more, mainly as I find VSTi's and VST's I'd like to use. Over time, my screen is getting cluttered with these sub (specific function) windows parked along the bottom. Most of them I have not deliberately opened, or ever used. But the thing is, they seem to be immune to the close 'X' button. And going to Windows>Close all has no effect either.
I obviously need guidance (a) how to get rid of them and (b) how not to trigger them !

Hello idgraham, could you clarify which windows these are, or upload a screenshot of them?

Hallo, Simon

There are currently 7 in all. Maximising them in turn I find they are:
Classic Tracks View
Bars
Tempo Map
Sysex
Guitar
Mixer
Meter Map
The Mixer is probably my default view. The others I have never actually used. I may have invoked them involuntarily.
And here's the thing: all present with the standard Windows 'x' to close - but they don't close when that is clicked. They just 'park' at the bottom of the screen, just their topbars visible.

Sincerely
Ian G.

i think that's normal - it has never bothered me. you'll find its a quick way of switching windows when you perform various tasks. i think in RB its probably designed that way because the windows are all likely to be used and having them 'parked' means instant access.

an even quicker way of changing windows is the icons on the view bar. apart from tidiness why would you want to delete them?

by the way you'd be better posting in the RealBand forum

smile

and if they really annoy you drag the bottom of the open window down to cover them

The minimized window headers are hidden from view when the window in use is maximized. I don't believe there is a way to actually delete the window headers.

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus). Il y a des améliorations un peu partout dans le SongPicker, les Intros automatiques avec Basse/drums ou drums seuls, l'extension du nombre de titres avec + 3.400 titres nouveaux, MusicXML, la guitare avec vues "gaucher" et "élève", la fonction glisser-déposer, l'affichage multi-fenêtres de l'Assistant Accord Audio et bien plus encore !

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

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.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
