February 01, 2017  -  Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Build 458 Update Available

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Users - a free patch update is available! (Build 458)
You can download this patch here.

(This is considered a beta patch because it is new; this is a cumulative update patch, which works from any 2017 build.)

Changed: The new hot key for opening the Record MIDI dialog has been changed to CTRL+R.
Updated: Band-in-a-Box help file.
Fixed: 'Allow Repeats and Endings for Any Song' menu item was not showing check mark.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash if opening or importing an audio file that is open by another application.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash if using the "Silence" RealTracks.
Fixed: Copy or Cut in the Audio Edit window would cause Band-in-a-Box to crash.
Fixed: 'Display Chordsheet in Fakesheet Mode' menu item was not showing check mark.
Fixed: In the Vocal Synth dialog, choosing the first English vocalist would not work (the resulting audio file would just say "shhh" for every lyric).
Fixed: In the Vocal Synth dialog, the vocalist selection was not sent correctly to the server (eg. choosing Matsuo-P would use Xiang-Lang).
Fixed: Multiple monitor support: floating windows would always open on the primary monitor. This applies to the Big Piano, Guitar, Mixer, Plugins, and Video window.
Fixed: Rendering to MP3 might fail with error "cannot get stream size".
Fixed: Rendering to MP3 will cause Band-in-a-Box to crash if choosing "MPEG Layer-3" as the codec.
Fixed: The "ASIO Always On" setting for ASIO audio drivers was not working (ie MIDI output was silent if song not playing).
Fixed: The "Output always on" setting for MME audio drivers did not work for MIDI playback (eg. clicking on the pianos, chord previewing, notation editing, etc.). It only worked for triggering MIDI directly through plugin GUIs.
Fixed: The activation window might get stuck behind the splash screen.
Fixed: The mixer might open off screen, and not be accessible.
Fixed: The splash screen was not showing.
Fixed: Tracks using the "Silence" RealTracks would display a blank label.
Fixed: Tracks with slurs might cause the Notation Window to freeze.
Fixed: Various situations will cause the Audio Edit window to crash. Eg. using the Vocal Synth dialog to import audio, opening the Audio Window, and pressing play would cause a crash.
Fixed: When disabling repeats, a spurious message would appear: "Repeats are now DISABLED. This will take effect when the NEXT song is loaded.".
Fixed: When disabling repeats, and answering "Yes" to delete all repeats, this was not undo-able.
