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.

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
