What style are you referring to? If you tried to attach a file they are stripped from posts. It has to be put in the files area.

Folks why are you not going directly to the Band In A Box web site Support\FAQs section (https://www.pgmusic.com/techfaq.htm ).  They have all the content you’re citing on Sweetwater and several of the articles have been updated.

On my Windows 10 computer (with only the built-in Windows Defender anti virus), I did not have the same experience.  The page loaded correctly and it did not have any Flash Player messages.  I don't know if it makes a difference, but I use the Google Chrome browser.

Don't go to that site. The first time I went to it, it loaded correctly momentarily and then it redirected to one of those bogus "Your Flash Player is Out of Date" warning pages. I don't even have Flash Player installed on my computer yet the warnings were made to look like they came from Flash Player.

So, just for you guys, I went back to the page and selected some pertinent text and did a search. The first result turned up the exact same article published on the Sweetwater knowledgebase. https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/band-box-make-song-endings-more-natural-hold-last/

I don't know what this site is, if they have any original content, if the Flash Player warning was a scam or if the site has been hacked, but I don't think it's worth visiting and the mod may even want to ban him and/or remove the links. I will check the others the same way in a moment.

Thanks to everyone for their views.  Being in the UK I was not aware of Sweetwater, but having visited their website, and in particular the SweetCare resource, I'm happy to get the information from there.

Kind regards

Chris

Make sure that the styles you are trying are all Real Styles and not styles which have a combination of Real and Midi instruments.

If you pick a style that has MIDI instruments you need to use a midi device for output or a softsynth such as Coyote.

You can substitute real instruments for midi instruments, so you can still make use of some of those mixed styles.

For what you're trying to do can I suggest that in the StylePicker window you select Real Styles Only to begin with?

You can select a style that's close and change the bass and drums to the real tracks that you prefer.  There are many biab tutorial videos on YouTube.

Re: How Can I Make My Song Endings More Natural?

David H. Bailey <dhbailey@...>
 

I've clicked on the links several times over the past month or so and have suffered no ill effects. I did *not* click on any links which appeared on the pages with the tutorials I checked out.

The links are to short tutorials about different aspects of BIAB.

Not particularly helpful if you're not interested in what the subject is, but helpful if you can't figure something out.

One of our members has already mentioned that at least one of the tutorials was helpful for him.

ah
thanks for the sleuthing Joe. 
I would prefer to have the Sweetwater reference


Re: How Can I Make My Song Endings More Natural?

Joe Muscara
 

I have checked the other articles he linked to. Every single one of them is already in the Sweetwater knowledgebase. Most of them led me to that Flash Player Out of Date page. I don't know if Carl's account was hacked, if he's a real person, if prezhost is a real site or if it's a scam or it was hacked, but what appears to be useful info is really available elsewhere and actually belongs to them, not prezhost.

Be warned.
