Hi, all--

I have a simple 12-bar blues that I want repeated 9 times. On the last time, I want BB (Win 2020) to stop dead at the first beat of bar 11. What BB gives me the last time is the full 12 bars plus a couple extra bars. When I try to set up some kind of first ending/second ending, then things really get balled up. Obviously, I don't want to unfold the song to 107 measures, if I can help it! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

This forum is about "UserTracks" if you post it in this forum "Band-in-a-Box for Windows" you will get more help as this current forum is pretty well abandoned.

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.
