When I play a RS (with RT's) in DAW plug-in files are in perfect sync with DAW metronome. When file is exported to DAW as a wave file it's out of sync....

I'm sure one of you guys quickly can tell me what I'm doing wrong.....


Thanx :-)

Is your DAW session using a sample rate other than 44.1khz? Did you allow your DAW to resample the audio when importing?

Logic will convert sampling rates but may change pitch or tempo — or even do both. It's supposed to be governed by Preference settings—like any DAW—but sometimes it glitches for no apparent reason.

When that happens, close LPx, reboot and try it again.

When I get files that come in wrong, it's always from Logic users. I let them know to reboot & export again. The files will now import correctly.

On the rare occasion where the timing is right but the pitch is wrong and I'm in a hurry, I open the file in Melodyne or ZTX, repitch about 3/4 step and it's good. I used to open these in my own copy of Logic but re-pitching is faster.

Among my many projects, I direct online choirs and praise bands these days. I get files sent to me from many apps in many formats. Digital Performer usually converts everything automatically except the occasional Logic export. No one knows why, including Apple.

I get that issue from Cubase users as well. The issue is that Cubase "asks" you to "convert to project settings" with a checkbox to allow Cubase to not ask again - it's not exactly well worded, so quite a few people click "Do not ask again" and get confused when pitch and time are messed up.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

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.
