hello
just trying realband out as a daw ,just to try keep everything within the biab environment .

scenario
open any style load demo.
open Plugin(scaler 2)
create individual chords corresponding to the realband song chords with phrases etc within scaler,
drag the created chords into realband track view(this takes about 10 secs, is this too long)im only doing 1 to 2 chords at a time.
the problem is that i have to keep switching back to the chord view to see what the next chord is.
is there a way in realband to show chords in the track view.

thanks

i'm not sure of your workflow. why not enter the chords direct in RB? i don't use scaler so i'm not sure what advantages it might give you but if you know the chord progression you can enter it direct - same as creating a song in BIAB.

as to chords in the tracks window i don't think its possible - the two windows are separate. maybe windows will allow you to display them side by side or on top of each other.

i'm also not sure why you need the two at the same time. can you give us a bit more detail of what you are trying to do? there are some real RB power users who might be able to help.

I'm sorted .I'll just open 2 instances of realband.


Scaler lets me edit chords/progressions by choosing different phrases,arpeggios timing etc then lets me drag into a daw as midi.a bit like the regeneration of a real track but it has some nice phrases.just another way to add bits and pieces to songs.

You could always do this instead of running multiple instances ..

I simply used the mouse to position the mixer on the right side and the chords on the left.
Resizing by dragging the corners of the windows. Once set it should 'stick'.

This is a great tip Rharv! Should be posted in the Tips and Tricks section.

Thanks for posting this!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
