New Comping feature, Highlight any section of an audio track, and Right click chose the feature Copy/Move highlighted area of current track to another track" A box pops up and allows you to place this on a destination track of your choice. If comping three vocal takes just add the parts to the next track as you feel is best. Easy and simple. no frills just effective.

Audio drag feature. Hold control and drag just like before, but not the you will see the wave file move rather than just a "ghost" box way more intuitive.

Maybe be able to add tracks rather than showing all 256 empty tracks ?

I just tried what you said, it looks better but it was a bit sluggish:

Yes it is a bit sluggish. This is because it is not clip based by design. Jeff was able to make it look like it is moving the wave file, but it is not really until it is released. so there is a tiny time delay. hopefully someday soon. I ask for only track chosen in beta. I believe it would make it better visually. The problem is the tracks, and busses are hard coded and would require a full rewrite to do that. So maybe a solution is another hide button like the busses to just show what is being used on the tracks window. We will see i guess.

On my 2022 laptop with PCIe Nvme SSD, it's only around 3 seconds for RB to complete the move of a 201 bar stereo track with the song's tempo being 120bpm. Thanks.

One idea instead of adding tracks (potentially for a future RB version, not this release) would be an option to autohide unused tracks higher than the highest used track, but it would still have one unused track showing above the highest used track, if there are no unused tracks below the highest used track, so someone could record on it without having to keep adding tracks just to record a new track or generate a new RT, etc. Thanks.

That is a good idea.

I think instead of adding a button as an option, make that the default and add a way to unhide more if desired.
That would at least give the illusion of the effect as the default without having to futz with it in the first place.

As an improvement I would suggest that last available track is the default setting; ie if someone has it set to default to stereo tracks, that last extra available track is stereo, or if they have it set to record both L&R MONO then two mono tracks would be there.
I'll let Jeff decide how doable that is.

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."
