Reaper Scripting for Dummies an add-on for BiaB
DAWs are much the same in what they can do but Reaper stands out because of it's scripting.
From the writers of WinAmp it's truly customizable.
Install https://www.sws-extension.org
Install https://reapack.com/
In Reaper menu Extensions > Reapack > Browse packages.. in Filter paste js_ReaScriptAPI
right click > Install > Apply

You can get Lua functions and scripting info with a simple web search.
Here's a simple script to print the current cursor position in the console.
File > Action > Show Action List > New Action > New Reascript...
copy and paste into empty script window > Ctrl+S to save and run.
This script will be in the list that you can select then click Run.
Code:
function print(value)
  reaper.ShowConsoleMsg(tostring(value).."\n")
end
cur_pos = reaper.GetCursorPosition()
print("Pos= "..cur_pos)

Excellent post @musocity ! I've been using Studio One Pro since forever, but have a license for Reaper good through v7.99. I have just installed it on my current laptop, so this post is perfectly timed for me!

It's a lot easier than working out Studio One scripting.
Here is some S1 scripting info if you ever need it

Reatrack is a script that is difficult for laymen to install.

ReaTrak_ver.47.ReaperConfigZip has not been updated anymore.

On YouTube, the official website:

the videos are silent. No explanatory lines.

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."
