great little program!

I would like it to have the following feature:
if a user enters a bunch of notes into a text box, the program would report all chords that contain those notes. I often know what chord I want to put into the BIAB or RB chord window, but I don't always know the name of it, or the best sounding chord with the notes I want

Alternatively, this could go in the chord builder.

Agreed. This would be a very useful app for composing.

In the interim, try using the separate applet on the 2012 BiB CDROM. It's called Guitar Chord Dictionary. It installs to the desktop as a standalone app. If you have an idea of the root or a location on the guitar neck, it shows a bunch of decent grips with each note spelled out in a list and on the neck. It's a timesaver.

I was using the 2011 BIAB Pro CD and upgraded to the 2013 UltraPlus PAK and have not found the guitar chord dictionary app on either. Is it possible it was a bonus during 2012?

I don't know Jim, but a call to PG Music Sales would tell you which bonus paks contained what when.

Thanks for the advice Matt.

I contacted PG Music support and they confirmed the guitar chord dictionary was not part of the bonus packs either time I purchased BIAB. They advised the guitar chord dictionary is a standalone program available for purchase here: Guitar Chord Dictionary

They also indicated a similar program is available for piano: Piano Chord Dictionary

Once again, thanks for the advice.

that's exactly the app I'm talking about. I do use it already, but I'm requesting the added feature as described in the first post.

I already have a spreadsheet I made that does what I want, but it doesn't PLAY the chord as the chord dictionary does. Being able to add notes in a specific order then hear how that combination would sound would be very helpful to me.

Well, BB has a feature that can name and enter a chord onto the chord grid when it is played on a MIDI guitar or keyboard.

Chord Entry via playing the chord. Naming will be by the lowest note played and is thus assumed to be the bass note.

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
