My one cent suggestion.

Perhaps you might consider putting this in the Wishlist section.

My modest thoughts after 1 year of use :

- more choice of drums variations. Right now you have a) and b) (in blue or green) and within them you have a few choice of drum variations but firstly not all styles have a a) and b) with different drums variations so it would be nice to implements variations in all RT styles ; and secondly it would be nice to have more possibilities so that we can really have more flexibility in terms of drum patterns during a whole song. It will make the song sound more real

- expand the numbers of tracks within the mixer to 12 or 16 so that we don't have to use Realband (which btw is clunky on my pc and doesn't work that well).

- add more solos for sax, trumpets, pianos etc so that you have more choice when you want to add a soloist playing in your tune.

- more Hip hop grooves. There are only a few and not all are great, which makes the choice limited. I don't think adding more country/americana or pop styles is important since the offer is already HUGE. So focusing more on others styles like hip hop would be neat.

- have a REAL 6/8 time signature !!!!!

- more 3/4 time signatures

- review the chords accepted AND correctly played by BIAB like minMaj7, minMaj9 etc.

- rework on the vocals (ahh ohhh) : sorry to say but they sound great when you audition them but once you add them to your song they are BAD!

More Real Yes(you can change RD's at any bar with F5), That has been suggested way back in 1954, there are even ways of doing it RealDrums Intros, Solos & 4 Bar Endings Tutorial

- expand the numbers of tracks within the mixer to 12 or 16 so that we don't have to use Realband (which btw is clunky on my pc and doesn't work that well). Hopefully this December !
......
- have a REAL 6/8 time signature !!!!! RealTimeSignatures YES, though maybe easier to implement in the Plugin version because of Biab limitations:
Notes: For TimeSigs higher than
4/4, each bar will be spread out
over 2 or more bars (eg. 5/4 will be
written as 3/4+2/4).

I will probably be ok with whatever I get this year. But some day (year) we will get greatly improved control over drums. Then I’ll be complete.

I would agree with this. Also, make it easier to create hybrid drum patterns. For example, I was looking for a kit that would give me snare on 3 in the verse and 2 & 4 in the chorus. After a half hour, you get tired of clicking on everything to see what it does trying to find something.

Plus the way it can double up on 1, hit random things on shots, or play through holds. Honestly, I would like the ability to take the parts that have been played, convert them to GOOD MIDI, and map it in BIAB to match EZDrummer or whatever drum sample software you have, and do a good MIDI export. 90% of the time, I'm good with what BIAB offers right out of the gate, but the option to use BIAB as source for other software when you can't find exactly what you need would be a nice alternative.

More than 48? Move your tracks to Pro Tools and you have what, 256?

What am I missing here? It seems like the major items on that list are already there.

MY wish list includes STOP CRASHING for no apparent reason. And instead of blindly defending the product, fix the problems. If it is only one person has the problem, it deserves attention. I can't tell you the number of times I have sent logs, screen shots, etc... only to be told "We can't recreate the issue." So despite my paying the same amount of money as people who don't have a problem, I just have to live with memory addressing errors and not be able to finish songs? I can't justify spending money on this stuff when every session is met by crash after crash, then blaming it on my computer. Also making the virtual instruments play as loud as the audio tracks. Whenever I use virtual instruments I have to turn down the audio tracks to almost completely inaudible levels to hear the MIDI tracks to play them in. Why should that be? I did it this morning when I was doing some horn parts. Couldn't hear them at all. I finally switched to analog and played them in on a sampler rather than having to alter 9 other tracks to hear 1.

Not holding my breath.

I suppose I shouldn't have even made this post because I use Real Band exclusively, but bugs are bugs and need to be fixed.

when i need to balance mid tracks and audio tracks i render the midi to audio then normalize

clunky but effective and it helps when midi tracks are not loud enough which i've experienced like eddie

I would like the possibility to create video usertracks, not only audio but also videos of musician friends who create video styles and that I can use for my songs with their physical presence in video.

Could you start a new thread and elaborate on this, please? I have no trouble with mMaj7 chords. There are a few things to consider.

mMaj9 chords are not supported in BIAB, so I'm not sure what to say.

That's a very neat idea. I can imagine it will be difficult to implement, and subsequently difficult to record your own video Usertracks, but I'll suggest the idea to the development team to see what they can do.

I suggested for them to record the RealTrack Artist with green screen so you can add them in your video smile

You can do all what you need in Reaper be it drums or instruments:

i'm kinda leery of user video implementations, if they "bloat" up the biab program executable.
next people will want fancy video editing tools, and so here comes the bloat.
why not use a seperate fancy video software with all the audio and video editing tools. ? once the song is done ?
i think other needed features people have asked for for a long time have higher priority.
wouldnt realband be a better solution for adding advanced
video features ?
yeh i know its a nice idea (eg add music to home videos/
band live events // gigs etc.) i'm just worried bout BLOAT.
best.
muso.
