I'm having troubles doing something in realband that I have accomplished in the past. I'm looking for help figuring out what I am doing wrong.

I've used the chord wizard to analyze 3 tracks that I imported, drums, bass, and an acoustic guitar. They are tracks of a song that a friend of mine recorded using a simple drum pattern from a keyboard. My goal is to have the ACW determine the tempo map (and chords as a bonus) so that I can add realdrums to the mix and have it sound nice.

The chord sheet looks great, the tempo map looks right, the bar lines match up, everything's cool. Then I add a realdrum track and it's like it chose it's own tempo map... Nothing lines up and it sounds like I just mashed two unrelated tracks together.

I know that I haven't done this in a couple of years, but I do recall doing this same thing in the past.... Is there some setting that I'm missing that tells the realdrum generation to use the tempo map?

I appreciate any input.

thanks,
Dave

I suspect the drum track is off 2 bars from the audio track. Realband adds two bars for the count-in. Try moving the drum track two bars to the left.

This has always worked here .. got any more detail, or a screen shot or something that may yield better clues?

You’re right. I’ll put together some screen shots and some more details this evening. Perhaps I’m misunderstanding how the tempo map gets used within realband. Is it per track? Project wide?

I think my previous efforts used a single song track. This multi track effort is confusing things.

Thanks,
Dave

The Tempo Map should get used on all tracks, unless you opt out of it during certain conversions.
I know of no settings that would cause this.
Like I said, it usually just works here.
Sometimes something weird like bit/rate mismatch can cause issues, but your issue sounds nothing like that.

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."
