I would like to apply some quantize to audio tracks. In Real Bands Audio Edit Window there is a 'Snap' button which highlights when clicked. The tooltip states that if this is enabled, highlighting a region of audio data with the mouse will make the audio snap to the nearest beat. I have clicked on the 'Snap' button so I'm presuming that enables the function, but when I highlight a region of audio data nothing seems to happen. Is this meant to align recorded audio notes to the nearest beat or am I off track with this?

Thanks
Gram

The snap function allows you to highlight a section of audio so that it starts at the beginning of the measure or at any other interval of the measure on the beat. For instance if you wish to select the audio from measure 34-1-0 to 34-3-119 the snap function will let you do this easily. Without snap enabled you would click on the track in the vicinity of 34-1-0 but you might be off and would have to enter the exact coordinates manually to copy and paste.

Thanks for explaining that Del, it seems the 'Snap' function doesn't actually do what I was looking for but it will still come in useful.

Hi Del, Yes it will come in useful, is there any way to quantize audio in RealBand or is it only MIDI that can be quantized? I don't want to quantize everything but it would be a useful function to have for certain parts. I know there are other programs I could use to quantize audio if it can't be done in RealBand.

Quantize is a function of MIDI.

In RB you can use the Audio Edit window and zoom in to a section, highlight it, and drag it a small amount to line up where you want it by holding down the CTRL button and dragging the section.
That way you can line up the waveform peaks with the lines for the bars, which is what Quantizing would do ..

Glad I could help
Also, In RB there is a setting for Resolution that allows more accurate dragging.
It defaults to 120 per beat but can be adjusted up to 3840 which allows more accurate edits.
It is under Options - Resolution
The more granular you can get, the more accurate your edits are.

FWIW
I quantize audio in Studio One and UA Luna and I’m pretty sure it’s pretty much a standard feature in most DAWs

Just a point to remember, Since RB is not clip based it will not work like Studio One, but as RHarv pointed out there is a tool in RN to accomplish this. Different methods same results. RB is super deep and somewhat messy and needs some clean up, but is is slowly getting better.

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."
