Hej, Jeg sidder og vil gerne bearbejde et akkompagnement der er lavet på nodesystemet Primus. Dette kan exportere i XML fil, og den vil jeg så arbejse videre med i BiBo. Er der nogle der har et godt tips?
Nodeprogrammet kan også eksprotere i MIDI, men jeg ved ikke om jeg gør noget forkert, for det fungerer ikke som jeg gerne vil... importerer mine akkorder samt mine noder...

Hello. Google Translate says that your post is asking if you can export from some other software into BIAB by XML. No. At this time, XML is not supported by BIAB.

I think you also said your software can export a MIDI file and you want to import the chords and music into BIAB. Yes, you can import any MIDI notes into BIAB but no, unfortunately, the MIDI standard does not support chords.

BIAB does have a function called Audio Chord Wizard that can help you guess what the chords are. If you already know them, you can just enter them into BIAB on top of the MIDI notes you import.

Hi Wayne. Thanks. Can you read Danish, and did I get this one right?

Hi, Matt -

Based on being half Norwegian (well, it's been a long time), you got it pretty close. The Norwegian and Danish written language is pretty close. I find I can read Danish, but not so much Swedish; but I can often understand a spoken Swedish, but not spoken Danish.

My translation (from memory, so I imagine I'll get a bunch wrong) is:

Hej, Jeg sidder og vil gerne bearbejde et akkompagnement der er lavet på nodesystemet Primus. Dette kan exportere i XML fil, og den vil jeg så arbejse videre med i BiBo. Er der nogle der har et godt tips?
Nodeprogrammet kan også eksprotere i MIDI, men jeg ved ikke om jeg gør noget forkert, for det fungerer ikke som jeg gerne vil... importerer mine akkorder samt mine noder...

"Hey, I am sitting and would like to make an accompaniment that was created in the notation program Primus. It can export in XML file format, and I would like to take that and work with it further in BIAB. Are there some good tips there? The notation program can also export in MIDI, but I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, because it doesn't function like I want it to - to import my chords along with my notes."

I got the sense that he wants to export from his notation program into BIAB with both chords and notes, so your answer is correct; however, if the notation is chordal in nature, the BIAB can figure out the chords based on the MIDI input.

I love his moniker: Verdens Mindste Big Band

That's translated to the "World's Smallest Big Band".

By the way, PriMus is a notation program I had not heard of. It looks like it's a German program. They have a button for English on their web site Columbus Soft, but only parts are in English. Looks like they have two versions - PriMus Classic (169 Euros) and PriMus (349 Euros).

Thanks, John. I didn't want to comment on Primus.

I also love his name. Very creative.

Thanks, Jan - don't know if I'll always get it right, but I figure I might as well try. Hopefully it will help someone.

Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac Patch Update 152 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac users can download this free patch update here.

Included in the update:
Fixed: Audio could not be pasted beyond the end of the existing audio data.
Fixed: Audio importing would fail.
Improved: If making a tempo map after using the Audio Chord Wizard, and the current style has a different time signature, you will be asked to choose a different style. If possible, you can choose to keep the current style, but the time signature of each bar will be set for you.
Fixed: Automatic updates were not working.
Fixed: Some VST plugins' GUI window would not close properly, and leave a ghost window on the screen (eg. the Expand!2 plugin).
Fixed: The Expand!2 plugin would cause all menus in Band-in-a-Box to stop responding.
Changed: The new hot key for opening the Record MIDI dialog has been changed to control+R.
Fixed: The "Piano, Acoustic, Bright Grand Sforzando" patch was missing from the Hi-Q list.
Fixed: "Could not load Hi-Q patch." would show if trying to load the "Organ, Electric, Rock Sforzando" patch.
Fixed: "Could not load Hi-Q patch." would show if trying to load the "Organ, Electric, Jazz Sforzando" patch.
Fixed: Clicking on the Guitar window would show notes on the Melody mixer piano instead of the Thru mixer piano.
Fixed: VST plugins that have been uninstalled should not appear in the plugin list.
Improved: Plugins can be chosen by double-clicking on them in the list, instead of having to hit [Return] or clicking [OK].
Fixed: In the Japanese version, when opening the Email dialog, you would be asked to save the song even though it was already saved.
Fixed: In the Japanese version, attaching a rendered song to an email would produce a rendered file with garbage text in the title, and it would not be attached to the email.
Fixed: In the Japanese version, a song with an audio track would not give the option to attach the audio file.

RealBand 2017 Patch Update (Build 4) Available!

RealBand 2017 Users can download this free patch update here.

Included in the update:
Fixed - Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).
Fixed - Spurious warning about rebuilding style picker when not needed has been removed.
Fixed - FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed - the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed - saving to XML would result in the timing being wrong, if the song's PPQ was not 120.
Fixed - when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed - a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows Patch Update 459 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows users can download this free patch update here.

Included in the update:
Fixed: Audio Edit window was not displaying lines for audio stretching features (bug introduced in build 458).
Fixed: Clicking on the Mixer piano (Thru track) does not display notes on the Guitar or Big Piano windows.
Fixed: The select bar dialog would conflict with keyboard input.
Fixed: Email Song dialog would not show options to attach Artist Performance Tracks if they were WMA files.
Fixed: Hitting the [\] key (forward slash) while in the notation window would crash Band-in-a-Box with the "Cannot focus a disabled or invisible window" error.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash on bootup with "Not enough timers available" error.
Fixed: The RealTracks picker might freeze if using a custom RealTracks folder location, and this folder does not exist (eg. an external hard drive is not connected, or re-connected with a different drive letter).
Fixed: If using Windows 10, holding down the mouse anywhere in the chord sheet window and scrolling the mouse wheel would cause Band-in-a-Box to immediately crash.
Fixed: When saving MusicXML files, slurs would be rejected by other programs that opened the files.
Fixed: After performing a drag and drop, the previous state of soloed tracks was not restored.
Fixed: Drag and drop of audio track would render Bass track instead.
Fixed: When using multiple monitors, some popup windows would be forced onto the primary monitor (eg. changing song title, changing track label).
Fixed: When using multiple monitors, Band-in-a-Box would not properly open to the previous size, position, and maximized state.
Fixed: Previewing chords in the chord sheet (Shift+Enter) or using the chord builder would eventually stop playing all the notes in the chord if using the "always on" setting for the audio driver (MME or ASIO).
Fixed: Splash screen was missing if running program in any language other than English.
Improved: Shots and Holds for Direct Input RealTracks can be assigned unique Holds library numbers, and unique decibel offsets.
Fixed: If using a 3/4 style, Band-in-a-Box would switch to the ZZJAZZ style (4/4) when launching the Audio Chord Wizard. This would cause an incorrect tempo map to be made afterwards.
Improved: If making a tempo map after using the Audio Chord Wizard, and the current style has a different time signature, you will be asked to choose a different style. If possible, you can choose to keep the current style, but the time signature of each bar will be set for you.
Fixed: Automatic updates were sometimes not working
Fixed: Rendered WAV files would not be acidized if the option to normalize was enabled.
Added: Drums name is more descriptive in the drums panel of the mixer, e.g. saying "snare and high hat"instead of "snhh"
