Jump to new posts Keyboard ackorddiagram? by ollake @ 02/15/18 06:37 AM

Hej på er! Funderar på att skaffa mig BIAB men har en liten undran först. Jag skulle vilja kunna skriva ut en melodi med ackordbeteckningar ovanför som samtidigt visar hur ackorden tas på ett keyboard. Alltså eg samma som symbolen för ett gittarackord det med ett litet keyboard istället. Går det att göra i BIAB? Mvh Olle

I run Cubase 9 and BIAB 2018 on the same computer. They work great together. I export all of my tracks individually to Cubase and do my mixing, mastering and other recording there.

I haven't been on the forums much lately because of real life and participating in FAWM.

Hi Al-David! Thank you for your kind comments! I had a lot of fun with this song, I hope it put a smile on your face too! I wanted to do something different with the guitars to make you wonder (what the heck was that)? The organ on the left and the horns on the right were an ambush on your ears. The strings and piano were there to keep everything in line. The falsetto was not that difficult (all you have to do is drop a few ice cubes down your shorts and presto)!!! =D Thanks again, Dave

Jump to new posts Re: Unable to add Lyrics in Real Band by jford @ 02/14/18 10:20 AM

You don't need to necessarily enter the melody; just bang out the rhythm for the melody (they can all be the same note). It will take as long as listening to the song one time. Then add the lyrics to those notes, mute that track and you've got your lyrics. The notes ensure that the lyrics align correctly to the music. By muting the track, you keep everything there in case you have to go back and edit anything.

Thanks for the +1 Trygve. The workarounds are so complex for something already built into Real Band, I would think more people would have jumped on this earlier. Every year we get a host of improvements. perhaps this year we'll get OUTPUT CHORDS TO ALTERNATE MIDI DEVICE.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
