PG Music has released Beta Build 233 of Band-in-a-Box Version 2007.
Summary of changes:
- Added: You can now mute an audio track by right-clicking 'Audio' in the instrument panel at the top of the screen.
- Improved: Audio status is shown in the instrument panel. Audio label is either displayed whited (no audio track), yellow (audio track present), or red (audio track muted).
- Added: Fly-by help hint added for audio label in instrument panel.
- Fixed: For songs without 2-bar endings, RealDrums volume changes were not working correctly in some cases.
- Fixed: Error when selecting 'Line-based lyrics | Auto-update all songs in folder to note-based lyrics'.
- Added: Audio Chord Wizard - Right-click menu item "Estimate Tuning". Right-Click "Estimate Tuning" on a bar, and it attempts to find the pitch tuning of that bar. Then a dialog is presented giving the pitch estimate in cents (100ths of a semitone), a confidence rating. The results dialogs gives an opportunity to either Accept the Tuning Estimate (set the ACW Tuning control to that value), or to Cancel and not accept the Estimate. This feature improves chord detection accuracy on many songs. Note: The Tuning Estimation only works on one bar, because analysis of larger sections would take a very long time.
- Improved: Audio Chord Wizard - Harmonic/Chord analysis has been accelerated. ACW should analyze audio and draw the screen updates two or three times faster than previous versions.
- Improved: Audio Chord Wizard - Chord Symbols are resized to fit the bar-space when the view is zoomed-out.
- Improved: Audio Chord Wizard - Saved bar information is now imported back from Band-in-a-Box. When the user returns the chords to BIAB and saves the song, BIAB saves information about the Bar One location and edited Bar locations inside the song file. If the user later re-opens the saved song into ACW, ACW will now load the saved Bar One and Bar Edits from the previous session. So a song can be re-opened into ACW, the bar locations further refined, and then the updated chord and tempo-map information can be sent back to BIAB.
