This video shows how to search for a Vocal Oohs RealTrack for your Band-in-a-Box song, as well as find a specific RealTrack. The steps are shown in Band-in-a-Box for Windows, but they are the same steps in the Mac version. To open the RealTracks Picker on Mac, click on the track in the Mixer, then the menu items are labelled as Select RealTracks | Choose RealTracks.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

I'd like to use this opportunity to iterate my previously submitted request that the search string ought to include results from the RT's Memo text and not just from its name.
Case sample: There are far more rhythm guitar RTs that do chops on 2 & 4 than indicated by their names, and currently it takes far too much effort & time to find them all, much due to this limitation.


Thank goodness words aren't knives.

Eddie,

Do you mind redoing the wishlist request so I can add my support to your suggestion? I haven't been able to find your wishlist request.

I think I might have to regardless, for even if I found posts of mine just now (within another request) where I reference having made such a request, I too seem to have been unable to find that particular post itself at the time, let alone now confused

p.s. I do have a knack for saying things in the most convoluted ways, eh crazy


Thank goodness words aren't knives.

hello,

yes, way too vague and actually un-musical.

how about being able to simply DRAW in the beats/lick, onto a timeline grid. then search.

in addition, when rendering, i'd like the actual index# for the instrument to be printed on the file.

this way, one can easily backtrack. this shows in the audio mixer but does not when rendered.

what have I got to do? write them done? how quaint.

this program is showing its age - needs a total revamp from the ground up.

that will never happen if customers don't complain.

robbo.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
