Cathie.
kudos for sticking at it.
think of biab and realband like this....

its like xmas. except better lol or an easter egg hunt.
because you KNOW at xmas the presents are limited.
whereas with biab and rb one keeps on finding more and more little presents if one continues to delve into all the features of both pieces of software.

i used to be nuts on scuba diving so when i started out with biab/rb , i felt it was a bit like scuba on a reef and suddenly finding some new wonderfull world.

best

Mario, I knew it had to be operator error because sometimes things worked right and sometimes they didn't. I just didn't understand that BIAB requires a certain order in the workflow--for instance, having to make shots and held chords before you freeze the tracks--and I didn't know to look for things being checked off by accident, like the MIDI drums being forced. My guess is that nearly all of what frustrated me so badly in the beginning was due to my not understanding the order BIAB requires.

Guys, the manual still reads like Greek to me ...............


We are all glad that we can help.

Also we all went through the same growing pains that you are experiencing. It takes time to tame BiaB!

The manual reads like Greek to many of us.

Mr. Muso, Mario, thank you both so much!! Today was one of those headdesk days, couldn't get the computer speakers to work for love nor money--turns out the batteries were low in the remote. Had a heck of a time getting the compartment to open, which seems to be today's theme--the back door won't open either. I think we might have to take the doorknob apart. **eyeroll**

To do a new song all I do is listen to a style and something always comes to mind just have to sought the lyrics out which is the hard part
Getting the lyrics right. But, as you say. BIAB is unbelievable what you can do with it. Burton Trent
