I didn't touch it in a few years so trying to relearn it. 
I used to be able to print to jpg so that I could email the lead sheets when needed. I still can but cannot find where you choose the folder for the life of me. Anyone know?
Thank you in advance.

Re: Problems with BIAB 2020 UltraPak

From what I can see, with BIAB 2020, V 723 or 724. a rendered audio file in the folder with the      biab file, causes an Audio track to show up in the mixer, but not containg any audio.  If you try to kill that blank audio track... it now deletes the track that you rendered manually.  This behavior appears to be new.  Don't know if it's planned behavior, but it's weird.

I think when  you have the audio file in the same folder it uses that as
the melody track. So you'll still be hearing that "behind" whatever
chord changes you are trying make subsequent to that. Moving the audio
file somewhere else is the way to stop that or you might be able to
"disconnect" that file from the melody track.

There are a lot of error messages on PC machines dealing with destination of the files. To better understand the issue please post the entire error message.

You're not trying to open the .zip file inside BIAB are you?

I've never seen that error message -- perhaps you can tell us which .zip file you're trying to unzip?

Problems with BIAB 2020 UltraPak

Monty Harris
 

I have been having problems with BIAB 2020 UltraPak ver.724. I sent an email to PG Music on June 30/20 and have received nothing other than that they had received my email. The following is what I sent and in anyone has any answers, please let me know...thanks in advance 

 
good morning...further to my email yesterday, I think I discovered what the problem is re not being able to make chord changes in A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square. I had saved the song as a MP3 to send to my friend in Van. and kept both the MP3 and the BIAB file in the same folder. I had five BIAB songs plus the MP3 files in the folder and when I moved the MP3's to a different folder I could make changes to the BIAB song. I'll keep you up to date if this changes...thanks...
 
 
I am using BIAB UltraPakPlus 2020 x64 (build 724) on a Windows 10 Home laptop. Lately I have had so many problems that I am considering going back to the 2019 or 2018 version. If I went back to an earlier version, could I copy the styles from the 2020 version to an earlier version. I use BIAB with two different vocalists and sometimes myself as a solo pianist. I live in Mexico and during the high season I work 4-6 days a week so BIAB is very important to me. One of the vocalists goes back to Van. during the summer and we have been trying to add some new tunes but the manner the BIAB is working for me, it's becoming most frustrating. The following is a list of problems I have been having. 
 
 
 
I have attached the song A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square...this morning I changed the intro to the current chords. I had previously used the chords from bar 29 to bar 32. It still plays these chords instead of the ones that are shown in the intro. I have saved it, closed BIAB, reopened and used another song first...then opened Nightingale and it still plays bar 29 to bar 32 as the into. After closing and restarting 4 or 5 times it actually played the new intro correctly. 
 
some tunes when I change the style from Bossa to Swing, it doesn't work...drums will swing and bass keeps playing Bossa
 
auto find repeats does not work
 
count-in instrument varies...I like just sticks...I've set it to sticks and I get different sounds, some very loud
 
switch between A and B variation...sometimes the bass still plays in 4 when I want it on 1 and 3...it may change after 3 or 4 bars or it may not
 
lately if I am using a bossa style using only bass and drums and decide I want to add the guitar comp it will not play the guitar until I save, shut down BIAB and then restart
 
if I close the mixer while a song is being played there is a hesitation in the playback
 
key interpretation is poor...for example the song Comes Love starts on a Gm and end on a Gm and I keep getting the message that it's in Bb
 
weird display of chords that make no sense    B-9/E (P4)   Bb-7/Eb (P3)    what is (P4 or P3)

An additional advantage of the long form for the lead-sheet is that you can then copy/paste whichever sections you want to solo over onto the end of the basic song form and can define the "chorus" to be whatever you wish with however many repeats you wish to have.

OK I'm trying to do something a little different here and I'm wondering ow to set it up

The song is Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson

The form is a'AABA

The a' section is a 4 measure the introduction (repeated twice)
The A sections are 16 measure melody (repeated twice)
The B sections are a 12 measure Cm blues where the improvisation takes place and this section has to repeat a variable number of times without a melody

The problem is A and B sections have a different chord patterns

Do I treat the A sections like an extended introduction

I can supply the Aebersold lead sheet if needed

Thanks
Steven
