Hello All,

I am running into, I think, a similar problem as another user.

I have loaded my audiophile version and am bringing old sgu files to play in the new environment. There are some glitches.

The most troublesome is when a song starts and a track is muted initially (I use F5 to set these), it will not resume when it is told later in the tune to go "Back to Normal."

All the tunes still behave as expected in last year's version of the program. Any suggestions? When the tune starts, the initially muted tracks are in red, incidentally.

Are you running Build 814? This was supposed to be fixed... Hold it, yes it was fixed in Build 815 coming out soon.

Fixed: Issues with Bar Settings un-muting tracks.

Yes, I am running the 814 build which I upgraded to just a few days ago before running my new install for the first time.

Thank you for your reply! I will be looking for the new 815 when it comes out.

I am having trouble with my BIAB 2021 with the bar setting not muting the drums or unmuting the drums or muting and unmuting instruments relating to the setting i put in the bar setting cells. I have patch 814 installed on my windows 8.1. is there a new patch out soon?

Are you able to provide a sample SGU file that demonstrates this issue? Somebody here could test and hopefully verify the source of the problem.

Hi,

There will be a patch release soon, most likely tomorrow. In the mean-time you could install this pre-release build if you want, and see if it fixes the problem. In my testing I am not having a problem with F5 muting/unmuting in this build.

I had the same problem using a few different styles. Muted the drums in bars 1 & 2 and even though I told BIAB to un-mute the drums in bar 3, they stayed muted.

Just installed the pre-release 815 build and it fixed the problem.

Program works normally now after installing the 815 patch.

Having seen the amount of times this month he's still in the office when I leave, I can attest to this.
