February 05, 2019  -  Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows Build 617 Available

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows users... Build 617 is available!

Learn more and download here.
The VST DAW Plugin update to 1.11.11 is included in this patch.

Summary of changes for build 617:
Fixed: After stopping playback the first time in a session, MIDI out to plugins will not work until song starts playing again. This only applies to WAS audio drivers when using "output always on".
Fixed: If switching from WAS to MME audio drivers, playback would be very distorted.
Fixed: The 64 bit version did not have the Drums window.

This patch update will also include Build 615-616...
Summary of changes for build 616
Fixed: Soloist track menu > Track Actions > Erase Track, would cause all menu items (eg. TimeShift Melody) to be applied to the Soloist track.
Fixed: Leaving the Leadsheet memo dialog will crash Band-in-a-Box.
Fixed: [Copy to Lyric Document Window] copies gibberish text to Lyric Document Window.
Fixed: [Copy to Lyric Document Window] does not work if the Lyric Document Window has not been opened yet.
Fixed: The Choose MultiDrums dialog will crash with error "List index out of bounds" if there are no MultiDrums available.
Improved: Windows Audio Session error -9996 should report a more informative error message on Windows 10.

Summary of changes for build 615
Added: 64-bit versions of the PG DirectX Plugins.
Added: Support has been added for the 64 bit PG Music DirectX Plugins. If opening a .TGS or a song file that assigns the 32 bit versions of these plugins, Band-in-a-Box will automatically load the 64 bit version. Song files will also save backwards compatible .TGS data so 32 bit versions of Band-in-a-Box will load the 32 bit version of these plugins.
Fixed: If using WAS audio drivers and "output always on" is disabled, MIDI notes will keep playing when song stops and Panic will not turn them off.

All of our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 patch updates are cumulative updates, which works from any 2019 build. You do NOT need to install each individual patch update - just the latest one!
