If a song has bars of mixed time signatures e.g. 3/4, 4/4, 2/4, you need to start the song using the highest count value and then use F5 to set the time signature at certain bars. This works, but often the phrasing is less than ideal, with critical accent beats being cut-off etc.

The song can also have the style changed at any bar, but this generally sounds like you changed bands mid-song and is less ideal again.

Many contemporary composers embed different time signatures to articulate their phrasings. The above methods don't generally do justice to the song or meet the objective.

Band In A Box would significantly benefit from a better range of time signatures that use the same "style", but have accents that work properly with the specific signature (4/4, 3/4, 5/4 etc).

So when changing from 4/4 to 3/4 the system doesn't cut off the last beat, but rather the same (real-tracks) style actually plays that part from a library of correct time signatures (but recorded using the same style).

This would be a great enhancement to an already fantastic program.

If you are working in BiaB in 5/4 it would likely help to move to RB.
Whole different world.
This doesn't address your wish, and is not meant to lower it in any way; just a suggestion.
I think it would be cool if BiaB supported odd-times better too. But for now RB does it much better.

Thanks for the suggestion Rharv, I've been exploring Real Band. Yes, perhaps better, but like you say, still not the most ideal method. Hopefully the process for creating/using mixed time signatures this can be improved in an elusive future version.
