Ever since I downloaded the updates for Real Band & Powertracks my songs load without the FX parameters. What I mean is that my mixes are gone! Volumes, equalization, reverb, everything is gone. I followed PG Music support's link to download the "fixes" but these do not work. Very frustrated as I have been a user for at least 15 years but can't get a straight answer as to why this is still not working. I'm running Windows 7 Home. Focustrite sound card box. Computer built by Sweetwater with Intel i5 core. Any help appreciated.

Greetings Larry,

This forum section is mainly for PG Music to post frequently asked questions so I suspect this thread will not receive the views and responses your question deserves.

May I suggest you post in either the +++ RealBand +++ section or the +++ PowerTracks Pro +++ section.

It will be helpful to know what year and build of the program you are using.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.
