re!

bon, cette fois, c'est le cauchemar!!!

- Le piano ne sonne plus du tout, sur aucun de mes titres!

Précisions:

- Le vumètre indique pourtant qu'il joue! Il n'est pas "muted".

- Il ne sonne que sur les démos, et sur rien d'autre!

- même si je "charge" le style entendu en démo, rien n'y fait: piano parti!!!

- ATTENTION, GROS MYSTERE: à l'instant, en manoeuvrant le curser du volume, j'ai fait revenir le son du piano.

Croyant que c'était réparé, j'ai stoppé le morceau, et l'ai fait rejouer depuis le début: rebelote plus de piano!

Peut-être un indice: il y a une heure environ, j'ai créé un style "hybride", par le Style Maker".

Tout marchait impeccablement.


Le problème n'est arrivé qu'après!

J'ai pourtant immédiatement supprimé mon style hybride, pensant que c'était la cause du problème,

mais ça n'a rien changé: le piano ne sonne plus sur rien, sur aucun style appartenant à Biab! Aucun!



J'ai un semblant d'explication, mais que je ne crois pas vraiment crédible:

Un morceau, chez moi, ça fait 11 chorus. Dois-je croire que c'est trop lourd pour le programme?

Pour une version moderne, ça m'étonnerait!!!

De 2000 à 2008, j'ai fait parfois tourner des titres à 18 chorus, sans le moindre problème!


en résumé: HEEEEELP! AU SECOURS!

si vous avez une idée, je suis preneur, vous l'aurez compris!

amicalement

re-re!

voici ce que j'ai tenté, et qui semble prouver que le problème vient de Biab:

- Afin de vérifier les choses, j'ai téléchargé la version gratuite d'un "mixeur",

nommé MixPad.

- Depuis Band-in-a-Box, j'ai exporté, par "MID" (en haut à droite, onglet "Fichier)

un morceau en format MIDI.

- Ensuite, j'ai ouvert MixPad, et, quand il a été ouvert, j'ai glissé dedans, par

drag&drop, le fichier MIDI de mon morceau

- MixPad l'a lu sans aucun problème. J'ai même pu "muter" la basse et la batterie,

et isoler le piano, il sonne parfaitement!


- Alors j'ai voulu savoir quel pilote utilise donc MixPad pour parvenir à lire un truc

que Band-in-a-Box, lui, ne lit plus!

Je peux donc vous dire que MixPad utilise un truc nommé "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth"

C'est écrit sous la piste.

Je me demande donc si je ne devrais pas faire quelque chose au niveau des pilotes

utilisés par Biab? Curieux, car pendant 48 heures, il a tout lu, sans souci.

Le problème, c'est aujourd'hui, il y a quelques instants seulement!


Précision, pour ceux que les intrigues policières amusent:

- pris d'une intuition, dans Band-in-a-Box, j'ai manoeuvré le curseur de volume, comme

dit dans mon post précédent, et le son du piano est revenu.

Alors, sans arrêter la lecture, j'ai cliqué sur l'icône disquette pour

sauvegarder de nouveau ce morceau.

eh bien voici le résultat:

Le simple fait de cliquer là-dessus pendant la lecture a suffi à ce que le piano

se volatilise de nouveau!!!

Comme si cela avait créé une sorte de secousse, allez savoir!

En termes de roman policier, ça s'appelle un crime impossible... shocked

je vous renouvelle donc mon appel au secours!

grand merci par avance!

amicalement

That's very strange.

Do you hear the piano if you go to Options | MIDI Driver Setup, and de-select Use VSTi/DXi Synth?

Try closing BIAB, then delete the file MySetup.dk from the bb\Preferences folder. Then open BIAB again and see if that fixes it.

Hello Andrews!


a great thank you for your answer, answer that leads to another question, which I ask you at the end of this message


Yesteray, I had an intuition: in the "Options" menu,I saw this: "reset defaults".

I did. And since I did this reset, the problem seems to be fixed...

Here comes the question:

On the MIDI config window, it says: no MIDI input, no MIDI output

But on the right on this window, the box "VSTi/DXi Synth" is already checked,

and the box "direct MIDI through to MIDI driver" is also checked


So the question is: what did I do wrong, between the moment I used Biab for the first time, 3 days ago,

and the moment the problem with the Piano sound appeared? In other words, what can cause that problem?

I ask only to be certain to avoid doing the same error again in the future!


Anyway, I took note of your answer, which will certainly be useful to me one day or another!

Sometimes, I would like to be Hercule Poirot in order to understand the mysteries of this new version of Biab...


thanks again, and have a nice day!

I thought maybe the channels got messed up in Options | Preferences | Channels. But I don't know why that would happen. If it happens again, zip your Preferences folder and send it to us, and we can test it...

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.
