I have been using RB a lot lately, and I'm noticing a recurring problem with the MIDI event list.

For whatever reason, all the events get copied and re-added to the event list multiple times. This makes it hard for me to edit parameters because I might not notice there are 5 copies of the same event, so any edit I make in the top copy gets overwritten by a subsequent copy. True, I can defeat the symptom by watching for extra copies (which I do)... but it shouldn't be happening.

Furthermore, it happens randomly. Some files never experience the problem while other files experience it multiple times in a session.
If anybody else makes use of the MIDI event editor and is seeing the same thing, please verify.

If Jeff ever has a free moment to look into it that would be great. Til then I'll keep watching for random extra events.

Just tried and not able to get that to occur. Any chance the Track for the Event List is to "Multi" and the extra events are on a different track?

Pat, I took a look at this and cannot duplicate. Jeff Y's response below is one that I have seen many times as I use the "multi" event listing to look for just the type of issue you are describing. Once I find the issue using the "multi" I can pin point the track, channel and time that the offending event occurs and then go to that track and time to fix it.

I don't think so, but I'll check. I store mostly patch changes and continuous controller info, rarely notes. In order to get the data sent to the right device, each set of events is labeled for a specific channel. (I'm controlling multiple devices so having it set to multi would not work for me)

I create my tracks on one computer then move them to another one for performance. I wonder if saving the file on different computers could trigger such a phenomenon...?

As I said, it's random... and I haven't been able to pin down a common denominator between the times it happens and the times it doesn't. So I'm not surprised the problem isn't easily reproduced.

It's not a big deal. It has been happening here for years, and I know now to look for it when I edit a CC parameter and the results aren't what I specified. I mention it mostly for quality control, since it *IS* happening (just often enough to keep this old man confused)

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."
