Hello, I just entered a simple song sequence and for some reason the drums decided to stop playing just for these bars in the two red boxes. I have tried everything to make the drums continue playing, can anyone help me?

I don't really know why they would stop on those bars, however, press Function key <F5> (bar settings), and then press Reset All Bars then Apply.

Make sure that the tracks are not frozen, and regenerate.

(I'm not sure if it's somehow related to the two sets of repeats.)

Are you able to upload the SGU song file to Drop Box or similar and send a link. Other's might be able to test.

Thanks AT,
I decided to try creating the song all over from scratch and there is no problem with drums.
I don't know what I did wrong to cause this.
One of the first things I tried was bar settings for this bar but perhaps I couldnt see what I needed to do.
For interest I will try out your solution tomorrow though to see if it corrects the problem.
Thanks for helping.

Jademan, just so you know you are not alone, this has happened to me very rarely over a few decades. It's always a few bars of drums. I do not know the cause or the remedy.

Usually however, regenerating the song again fixes it. In other words, it is not likely to be anything you did wrong, but you can follow AudioTrack's advice and post the song so we can test it.

The next step would be to shut down then reload BIAB.

And if that does not fix it, perform the normal troubleshooting step whenever BIAB is not doing something correctly that you know it should be doing: go to Options, Preferences, Return to Factory Settings, Most. If you have made many customized settings, you are first given an opportunity to save them.

Thanks for posting your song. I tested it and it played the drums fine, so I think it's not the song and you can go back and try other suggestions.

I don't know this genre but consider removing some chords where the same chord is used in the next measure, like the second of the two bars of the A chord. It might make a smoother sounding backing track.
