I am waiting for Windows tablets to come down in order to use my BIAB files as an "electronic" fake book. I would LOVE to see just the Leadsheet rendering code ported over to (Android especially) so I could use a cheap tablet with decent battery life and no hard disk to look up / sort / display / transpose tunes.

I don't know how hard it would be to port just that portion of BIAB, but I can see a huge market for musicians to take their set lists on such a device to gigs, and be able to transpose at will.

Options might be :

1. Transpose
2. Hide intros/ending
3. Display / Hide lyrics
3. Net / Previous Page

Nothing fancy, but I have been using an old XP Fujitsu tablet with hard disk and 11" screen for this purpose for years. The stylus is a pain, and the full BIAB interface is overkill for what I need. It still beats carting a bunch of Bb/ Eb paper books with me.

It's not what you were asking about, but you may be interested...

"There's an app for that...." It's 900 RealBook tunes leadsheets on Android App. Works and looks pretty good.

I have that ... It is pretty good, but tough with a phone form factor (and not enough to make me buy a tablet <g>.) Thanks, though. It is nice to have. Wish my eyes were what they used to be !

The latest version even plays chord progressions in a (very limited!) BIAB manner, at least on the iPad: http://www.irealb.com/

And: there is a web editor: http://www.irealb.com/editor/

Get To Know the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab Feature - Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows

One of the new features we added with Band-in-a-Box® 2017 is the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab RealTracks. Click here to listen & watch this new feature in action!

Detailed information:
New! 12-Key "Woodshedding" RealTracks
Many people use the RealTracks feature in Band-in-a-Box® to learn how to "play like the pros." This is because you can see notation, tab, on-screen guitar, and more as you hear the music. Now we've taken this to a higher level, by providing some "12-Key" RealTracks that have been recorded in all 12 keys! In previous versions, you might decide to learn to play by studying the parts played by the RealTracks artists, and watch the notation to do so. Many people have found this a great way to learn, but it had the following issues:
-Since RealTracks were based on only 5 keys, they were transposed much of the time, which would make the guitar part unplayable for a student in some cases.
-The tab/notation was good for guitar, but lacked some precision and graphical representation of bends, pull-offs, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.

We have solved that by creating some Guitar RealTracks with recording in all 12 keys! So you can see what a pro would play over an Ab chord, and you won't see them play on a G transposed up to an Ab, and carefully transcribed notation, with correct bend/hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides... So now you (we!) students have no more excuses! You can watch and learn from the pros!

Plus, Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts are available with highly accurate and readable notation, including new graphical markings for bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs! To see these in action, load in one of the 12-key Hi-Q notation RealTracks by Brent Mason. You can also enter your own guitar notation using these features. Just right click on a note to set its properties to include bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.
