Yes, I understand that. But different BiaB files can use different sound sources. Smile

Some use strictly a GM, GS, or XG software sound source, or a hardware synth like a Roland SC55, to create the audio, like a Midi file does.

Some use a mixture of a sound source along with the Real Drums & Real Tracks that are available.

And some use nothing but Real Drums & Real Tracks.

I was just wondering if the uploads are limited to one type, or if any of them can be used. Of course there are limitations to the Real Tracks that can be used, because each person would have to have the same ones for the file to play correctly.

For example, I have the newest BiaB 2014 Program itself, but NOT the newest Real Tracks, I only have up to Real Track Set 154, and there are now 205, thus I am missing 51 sets. So if some used, say, Set 178, I would not hear it the way they intended. Sad Cool

It should just sub for something if you don't have it.
I would think you can just pick and choose from what you have but it should work no problem.

I just noticed there is a public file in my dropbox that may be a better idea for this. Anyone tried it or have more experience with this type of cloud type situation?

Try looking in the little green arrow in the upper right hand corner of your computer.

In win 7 when you down load.. on my computer ... I am using Firefox browser. it goes quickly up to the right hand corner an arrow between a star and a little house.
What this does is putting it in your download folder.. If I click the Microsoft button in the lower left hand corner, in mine click my name Ken so look for your name. Click on the downloads file and that's where it should be.

Copy and paste into BB file in biab.

I don't understand the problem.
Everyone make up there own folder and share on demand (ask if anyone has it) from storage files and add it to their folder. Here's an old file I have no idea what it is but I know you can download it from my storage files. It just gets to complicated to do it any other way. It's a lot easier to ask for what you want than to have to wade thru acres of songs you don't want.
some kinda crap
I make my desktop my folder and put that as a folder in my BIAB Favorites. so when I download a file it goes to my desktop and then I select it from the desktop folder in my BIAB Favorites. To upload I just go to Box.net where my files are stored and copy and paste the url as I did here. I'm using Audiophile 2012 and I upgrade to another Audiophile every 3yrs costs $299 to upgrade. It originally cost me around $600.
I'm not bragging I'm complaining.

I would have to agree... and when I started this I was thinking that some examples of styles, walk ups, changes in the middle of songs etc. used as examples for questions or discussion. But it seemed to go from very little interest to a very wide spread of ideas for use.
I stated in the beginning it is so easy to email songs that there is not much point in creating a large library of songs as Jim Barron has done this for us.
There are experienced users and day one people trying to learn.
It seems as bad as trying to organize a steel guitar club.

I am going to suggest concentrating on styles. Most people,I think, use BB to make backing tracks for practice. That is what I use it for, but I am neither a rocket scientist nor in any way special.

Making a basic backing track with BB is so simple and fast, it takes less time to make one from scratch than it does to download one.
Frankly the free styles that come with BB limp.

If there are better styles floating around that are free and user made, that would be helpful.

Is there anything other than backing track that BB is good for? If there is it would be nice to know what those things are.

Do you have up to date BIAB with Real Drums and Real Tracks? There's people making radio ready music with BIAB. It requires a good deal of expertise and often some MIDI knowledge. A quick practice backing track can be made in a few minutes, but higher quality music requires some tweaking. I use BIAB provided styles, and styles that I've made myself, or made by others. You can learn to create your own styles using "stylemaker". A good starting place is to create a style from a MIDI song. b0b has some good Ray Price shuffle styles for sale here on the forum. Bob Norton has plenty of styles for sale, and also many BIAB songs already programmed. www.nortonmusic.com

There's a lot of stuff out there, but the good stuff is not free. I love BIAB. It can really help produce some good music, if you take time to learn it.
