Biab-random-instrument-picker.zip (contains AHK script and ReadMe)

Install www.autohotkey.com V1 then set C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe to Run As Administrator by right click if you are running Biab As Administrator.

*Before first use, go into RealTrack Picker, "Show All" and uncheck "Show RealTracks that are N/A" then click the "Copy List" this may take some time. Do the same in the RealDrum Picker. You will then have RealTracksList.txt and RealDrumsList.txt in C:\bb\Data.


Open the ahk script with NotePad or text editor, set it to your paths then save:

RTtxt := "C:\bb\Data\RealTracksList.Txt"
RDtxt := "C:\bb\Data\RealDrumsList.txt"
RTdemos := "C:\bb\Demos\RealTracks - Demos\"
RDdemos := "C:\bb\RealTracks\Data\RealDrums Demos Audio\"

You can run the script from anywhere or create a folder C:\bb\Scripts
Select the Mixer Track first you want to Inject in.
This needs the Audio Demos for RealDrums so if you don't have them:

Thanks, very good - they both works fine.

A very good tools for random play and auditing a selection of Styles, RTs and RDs.

Just a thought… random is good to get a feel for what is there, but for structured auditing it may be a bit difficult to get a feel for how much is there, how much have gone through, and how much is left out.

An added option to switch to Linear auto play, showing the number of items in the selection, and an option to set the starting point would probably make it into an efficient and structured auditing tool for Styles, RTs and RDs as a complement to the style picker (which I find completely useless for searching and auditing).

So it just needs to play the search results in the list one after the other for x secs ?

Yes, but need to be able to set the entry point into the list (so it don't start over from the beginning every time) and be able to see how big the list in order to see how far it got and how much remains. To be able to set the play time in seconds would also be useful.

Try this, I need to fix the search as there is a bug with the button, I put two there if one don't work. Just let it finish current search before starting another.
CSVQF-Biab-Styles.zip

Install www.autohotkey.com V1 then set C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe to Run As Administrator by right click if you are running Biab As Administrator.

*Before first use, go into The Style Picker, "Clear Filter", then Actions > "Copy List to clipboard" this may take some time. You will then have StyleListTabDelimited.Txt in C:\bb\Data.

Also Actions > Set Dialog Options > Show current style in list even... > "never"


Open the ahk script with NotePad or text editor, set it to your paths then save:
Line 32: these are defaults, if you have everything on C:\ you should not have to edit.
STYdemos := "C:\bb\RealTracks\Data\Style Demos Audio\"
STYtxt := "C:\bb\Data\StyleListTabDelimited.Txt"


You can run the script from anywhere or create a folder C:\bb\Scripts

CSVQF-Biab-Styles.ahk is the Biab Styles script

CSVQF.ahk is the original that you can open other csv or tab delimited files with

Double click will play

Ctrl or Shift click will select multiple styles to play with "Play All Selected"

Set the Play Time Sec or Full

I have made some initial tests of the CSVQF-Biab-Styles.ahk.
It works fine. Very good.

Exactly what I have been looking for for a long time.
Many thanks.

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."
