This may still have a few bugs.

Install 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"
Do the same in the RealTrack and RealDrum Pickers, "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:
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\"
RTdemos := "C:\bb\Demos\RealTracks - Demos\"
RDdemos := "C:\bb\RealTracks\Data\RealDrums Demos Audio\"
STYtxt := "C:\bb\Data\StyleListTabDelimited.Txt"
RTtxt := "C:\bb\Data\RealTracksList.Txt"
RDtxt := "C:\bb\Data\RealDrumsList.Txt"
AllDrums := "C:\bb\Data\ALLDrumFolderNames.txt"

Audio Detection is used when playing multiple selection of styles using the chord sheet, it will sense when the audio has stopped to play the next style. To use this feature use the Windows MME audio device driver in Biab.

Columns can be moved by dragging the column title.
You can run the script from anywhere or create a folder C:\bb\Scripts
CSVQF-Biab-Multi-Picker-Injector.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.
*Have Mixer in Floating Mode showing all tracks.
Make sure Looping is disabled for previewing Styles with chords.


I couldn't access the tracks in each style only the RT set they may be using.
