This will access the mixer while the Style Picker is open.
Go to Tab 4.
This will work on 2020 down, the shortcut keys need fixing on the latest 2021 mixer for it to work (should be done soon).

If you are running Biab As Administrator:

To run script only .ahk install https://www.autohotkey.com/ and set AutoHotKey.exe to Run As Administrator

To run .exe set to Run As Administrator

EDIT: fixed Bass reverb down
EDIT: Slider focus on Mixer
* remove .mp4 from file name and unzip
BB Quick Menu & Mixer.zip.mp4

Good stuff! I have wanted to be able to mute the various instruments when in the style picker for a long time. Makes it so much easier to audit the styles played against the chord sheet.

Link updated above.
This all seems to work now in 2021 807 and older versions.
The mutes don't work if I focus on the Mixer window so when you Mute it will focus on the main window.

Not to take away from Pipeline's excellent script, just to advise one can mute, solo and many other tasks from the StylePicker page by clicking on the small box with two dots that's located just to the right of each track in the Instrument Display in the lower right corner. To Mute, Solo, Freeze tracks and more, click on the box and scroll down and select Track Settings.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
