Is anyone using BIAB with an iPad? My father is a musician and has enjoyed using the Mac version of BIAB. He received an iPad for Christmas and really would like to be able to use the iPad with BIAB. He has downloaded the BIAB app for iPad and we tried to connect it with the BIAB installation on his iMac with no success. It asks for a server IP address, but when we enter the IP the app does not connect.

Thanks for any insight.

Techman,

It's probably worth contacting PG support for help with this. Try the support tab at the top of the page.

There's no server on the Mac. You create the mp4a on the Mac and then download it and the Biab file to the ipad. Look at the help file.

I have tried in vain to illicit help on this subject. I need to do exactly that. Control BIAB on my MAC from my iPad. Anyone else out there who has a solution. Streaming audio to my MAC would be an option. I tried "Airplayer" but could not get that to work either. As a musician I need to remotely control my BIAB on my MAC. THe iPad solution is supposed to do that!

I was told by onlline help that the apple version 2012.5 build 65 is inferior somewhat to the 2013 Windows version which apparently has a feature BIAB2GO to setup the server from the BIAB application on the MAC to connect to the ipad.

Any solutions PGMUSIC? I believe it is a serious offense to Apple users that you prefer Windows when Apple is a major player in the music industry.
I personally will never go back to using Windows.

You have to create a temporary wifi network on your mac (imac, macbook, mini) where your BIAB files are.
see an example:
http://beatsurfing.net/connect-mac-wifi/

step 1: create a temporary network on teh mac

http://beatsurfing.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/03-create-adhoc.png

step 2: connect the ipad to the new tempoary network

now you get in the BIAB ipad app, the ip address you have to use in the browser on the mac.

On the Mac, you can easily create m4a files for all SGU files in a folder.

If using version 2012.5 or higher:
This is done by the menu option (File- Batch Save all Songs in current folder to '.m4a). Version 2012.5 or higher required for that batch function. So to use that, load in a song from the folder that you want, and then it will be the current folder, and then do that command.

If using version 2012, you can only make one .m4a file at a time (File- Save Song as .m4a ) ). If doing that on a bunch of files, you need to load them in one by one, and then choose that menu option (since the batch file feature was introduced in version 2012.5)

Once you have the folder with .m4a and sgu/mgu BiaB songs, you just make a zip of the all of the files, and you will send this .zip to your iPad.
It is not needed to setup some kind of temp network as jodroog suggested. You just need to be on the same wifi network.

Watch the video that shows you how to do it (click on "Downloading Songs from your Mac"

Video - Explore the New Band-in-a-Box 2016 Chord Chart

Have you taken a look at the updated Chord Chart with Band-in-a-Box 2016? It's been enhanced with new look, feel and customization! Watch the video: www.pgmusic.com/?vid=iKUE4vSfISc&t=1324

A list of these updates:
-All layers can be customized with font and color.
-Now you see the chord where you are typing it. Previously, chords wouldn’t appear until you hit the Enter key, and sometimes wouldn’t appear at all if you made a typo.
-Colors for all elements on the Chord Sheet can be customized.
-Mouse-over indication shows which bar, cell, or part marker you are currently hovering your mouse over.
-You can now select a region of bars by just using the keyboard.
-There is now a Superscript option (separate settings for the chords and the Additional Chord Display layer).
-The number of columns can be customized.
-The "Extra space between columns (pixels)" option allows you to choose a border thickness between columns.
-The "New line for every section" option previously required that each section was at least 2 bars long, but now there is a "minimum section" setting.
-The "Show bar lines" option displays a bar line next to each bar number.
-The "Show bar numbers" option lets you choose how often bar numbers should display: never, always, only at part markers, or only at new rows.
-The "Use substyle colors for bar #s, etc." option controls the color of the optional bar lines, bar numbers, and section letters.
-The "Gray out chords beyond time signature" setting grays out chords that won't play in the song.
-The "Display ‘2’ as ‘sus2’" and "Display ‘sus’ as ‘sus4’" settings will show suspended chords more explicitly: ‘sus’ implies ‘sus4,’ and ‘2’ implies ‘sus2,’ but you might want to see the full extension name.
-All of the settings and colors can be saved and loaded as a .csc file.
