April 04, 2017  -  Band-in-a-Box® Version 2016 for Mac Patch Update Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac users can download the latest patch (Build 156) here.

Patch summary:
Added: In the PDF manual, clicking on the Bookmarks navigation pane, Table of Contents, or Index will jump to the corresponding page. (Note: To use the navigational elements, you need to open the PDF manual in Adobe Reader.)
Fixed: Some modal dialogs do not allow copy/cut/paste of text (eg. the Song Memo dialog).
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash while booting up if Amplitube 3 is installed. This is likely to happen after upgrading to macOS 10.12 Sierra.
Fixed: The Plugins dialog would list MIDI plugins for tracks that contained RealCharts. All 4 plugin slots should only list audio plugins for RealTracks.
Fixed: Proper song location information was only sent to plugins during playback.
Fixed: It was not possible to add MIDI plugins to the Melody or Soloist tracks if they were blank.
Fixed: Pressing the Delete key while in the notation window would delete the current chord.
Fixed: It was not possible to enter chords while in the notation window.
Fixed: Shots, Holds, or Pedal Bass in B substyles RealTracks might play too loud or too quiet because the global Holds dB offset was not being applied.
Improved: Shots and Holds for Direct Input RealTracks can be assigned unique Holds library numbers, and unique decibel offsets.
Fixed: Choosing MIDI SuperTracks would not ask to load or un-load a Hi-Q patch.
Fixed: Many electric guitar styles, when using the DI versions, would have very loud shots and holds. These are now balanced.
Fixed: RT1795 & 2403 were mistakenly listed as 'Banjo'. This has been corrected to 'Acoustic Guitar'
Fixed: Record from any bar would open the record dialog instead of letting the user choose a bar to record from.
Fixed: Some dialogs would not respond to the Esc key for automatically pressing the Cancel button.
Fixed: Some VST plugins would show a blank window when first opening, and then show a blank ghost window when closing.
Fixed: Transposing song would not transpose any notes before bar 2 of the Melody and/or Soloist tracks.
Fixed: After importing an audio file, the audio track would not automatically open on the mixer.
