Hi, brand new user.
I'm using the 2024 Daw version within Reaper and am pleased with intial attempts. However when I enter pushed chords (^F, or ^F... for a hold) the realdrum track does not play. I've checked in Chord Settings and everything seems ok. I am aware that I should be able to select and have the drums play through, but that is not the problem. The track just does not play. I've tried several fresh projects and it's the same everytime.
Anybody any ideas?

Great product, well impressed.
Thanks,
Fats

Hi also, and welcome aboard.

Please tell us what Style you are using, and exactly what version of BiaB?

When you mentioned the DAW version, I presume you mean RealBand that comes with the Windows version, but if I got that wrong, please elaborate.

Please give us as much information as possible so that we can attempt to replicate the issue, and give you feedback.

Hi, thanks for reply.

The style is Worship Pop M16SELC, build version 1106 - just downloaded over the weekend.

I was using within Reaper - loaded as a VSTi.

I have just tried in with same style in standalone and it works. Maybe I have inadvertently changed a preference or something?

I just tried it and it plays the Push on the Drum track, the thing with Reaper now you can edit anything so easily as you are working with the source files direct:

You can change the Push to a different one, or adjust the timing and volume of it:

Maybe I didn't explain myself clearly - with the push chords entered the drum track does not play through the song at all...from the start...

When i remove the push chords the drum track plays fine....

I tried it with the same Style M16SELC using VST 6.0.13 and Biab 1109
Save the SGU from the VST then try it in the Biab main app then freeze all tracks and save
then open with Open SGU in Reaper

Hi, thanks for your input. I'm just experimenting at the moment, getting to understand and know this fantastic kit.
To overcome the issue, I just generated the song without push chords, then just dragged the drum track into Reaper. Then generated with the push chords and dragged all the other tracks into Reaper. Not too much work, and gave me what i wanted.
Hopefully there will be a fix to this.

Thanks

Hi, I've just tried again with a completely different project in Reaper and a different style with a different but similar result.
Using _Yazoo.sty (Yazoo River Pedal Steel ), put a push on beat 3 of 2nd bar with a hold, except drums - (^A...d).
The drums played through bar 2,(the rest of band pushed and held), then no more drums from bar 3 while rest of band continued.
So removed that push and tried another the same (^A...d) on beat 3 of 4th bar, Same result - band held, drums played through the bar then no drums from bar 5 on...same when I input a shot (^A..d)
Am I missing a critical part of this?

Thanks
Fats

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."
