I created a melody for my song in BB and then imported it to RealBand. During the audition of the song there were three odd sounding bars. When I examined the midi I was surprised to see that an extra long note had been introduced in parallel to 'wanted' notes in that bar. This was in a verse that I had copied in BB. There was one other bar where a shorter note had been added to the 'wanted note'. I suspected that I had introduced the problem when working with the note editor in BB, so I went back to look at it in BB, but all was as it should be. I did the same in RB and this was all OK also.

It was easy enough to simply remove the unwanted notes but I just wondered if anybody else had come across this behaviour?

Hi Jonel, what version of Band-in-a-Box are you using and which build? You can check the build by going to o to Help | About Band-in-a-Box. Afterwards, near the top of that window, it will have Version 20xx and a number in brackets. That number is your build number. The RealBand build number can also be found under Help | About RealBand and is also a number in brackets in the new window.

Are you opening the MGU/SGU file in RealBand, or are you exporting the individual tracks to a MIDI file?

Band in a Box Version 2021 (842)
RealBand Version 2021 (9)

Both x64

I am opening the MGU/SGU file in RealBand

This 'anomaly' only occurs in 3 measures of the 104 measure song.

It's a good idea to stay up-to-date on both Band-in-a-Box and Realband. It looks like you have the latest for RealBand, which is great! Here is the newest patch for Band-in-a-Box:

https://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#844

Would you be able to send in the file to use with the tracks frozen at support@pgmusic.com and we can have someone take a look? You can either include a link to this forum thread in the e-mail or include a brief description of the issue with the file so that we have context for the e-mail. Once we have the file it will probably be fairly easy to tell what's happening.

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.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
