I'd appreciate help setting up a 12-bar blues backing track just the way I want it (in BB 2020 Win)...

Here's what I'm trying to do:

choruses 1 - 4: just the selected style track
choruses 5 & 6: adding soloist tracks
choruses 7 - 9: trading 2's with a soloist track
chorus 10: just the selected style track

I think that by selecting "mute melody in middle", I can inactivate trading 2's in choruses 1 and 10, and I think that adding soloist tracks for choruses 5 and 6 will (probably?) inactivate trading 2's in those choruses, but how can I kill trading 2's in choruses 2 through 4?

Thank you!

Do you want to use "UserTracks" or "RealTracks"

If using RealTracks, it's a matter of programming and only requires two tracks. One track will contain Soloist Instrument 1 and the second track will contain a Medley of both Soloist Instruments to Trade 2's.
Then, it's a matter of muting and un-muting the two Soloist tracks at the appropriate Chorus's.
It's a similar but different process if using UserTracks or MIDI.

Preparation using RealTracks:
If necessary, add your soloist instrument to the Style. ie: RT1530 Guitar
Add a second Track of that Soloist instrument. ie: RT1530 Guitar

From the RealTracks Picker, Select the 2nd soloist track. Select the Medley Button.
In the Medley Window, the first track of the Medley sub-mixer should have your soloist instrument, ie: RT1530 Guitar.
In the 2nd track, select a Soloist RT to be the 2nd Soloist instrument for Trade Two's.ie:RT1956 Sax.
In the Medley Window, select '2 Bars'.
Ok to exit the Medley Window.

Program the song.

.choruses 1 - 4: To play just the selected style track.
In Bar Settings.
Select Chorus 1. Mute both of the Soloist Tracks at Bar 1.

.choruses 5 & 6: adding soloist tracks.
In Bar Settings.
Select Chorus 5 - Un-Mute the Soloist 1 Track at Bar 1. Plays the Soloist lead Guitar.

.choruses 7 - 9: trading 2's with a soloist track.
In Bar Settings.
Select Chorus 7 - Mute the Soloist 1 Track at Bar 1.
- Un-Mute the Soloist 2 Track that has the Medley Programming at Bar 1. Plays the Guitar and Sax.

.chorus 10: Play just the selected style track.
In Bar Settings.
Select Chorus 10 - Mute both Soloist Tracks at Bar 1.

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.
