Welcome aboard, Mike.

Which version and release of BIAB are you using (PC or Mac)? Lots of folks here are happy to share their experiences, as well as tips, tricks, and work-arounds.

Welcome Mike to one of the most friendly sites on the web. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Here the only dumb question is one that is not asked. Most all of us are willing to help.

Have fun.

Welcome to the forum, Mike. In case it is helpful, there is also a French language forum here in the International section of the forums. If you post about a problem here, in addition to John's question, let us know if you are using a different language keyboard and/or non-English version of BIAB; sometimes it helps to save time when troubleshooting.

Hi Mike, glad you've found us. You're going to like the folks here! Best bunch of music friends ever.

Be sure to add a byline to your signature (like mine below) so we all know what type of equipment you're using. It helps us give you specific advice when we know what equipment you're using.

Good day:

My guitar teacher has been at me to get this program for years. I am composing, and find this to be a wonderful resource and learning tool so far. I am getting through the manual...oof.... Nice to know I can bounce my questions around here as well. Notation and writing melodies to my chord progressions will be a challenge once I can get to that

Welcome to Band-in-a-Box and the forum.

Nice introduction. Looking for to hearing your compositions. Which package are you starting out with, is it the Pro, Mega, UltraPlus, Everything or Audiophile?

We will be looking forward to your questions if you encounter any bumps along the way.

Also you may want to consider adding the BiaB package information to your signature to avoid questions in the future.

Welcome, eddieknuckles -

Feel free to ask your questions. Clearly you have experience with computer based audio, since you also have ProTools, ACID, and Sound Forge.

You should find us a friendly, helpful bunch here. And then hopefully you will post some of your original music in the User Showcase forum.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows - User Programmable Functions

But, what if you want to be able to tell the program to do MORE than that?

Head to Chapter 14: User Programmable Functions within the online manual, and you'll learn more about programmable features like:

The StyleMaker
Create brand-new styles or edit existing styles!

Making RealDrums Styles
Template file included! You can either record a drummer, or you can piece together a wave file using drum loops!

The Harmony Maker
Create or edit your own (or existing) harmonies!

The Soloist Maker and The Melodist Maker
Define your own Soloists or Melodists in whichever style you'd like!

The Guitarist Maker
The program will intelligently arrange any melody to a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. There are many preloaded Guitarists to choose from, or you can customize existing Guitarists’ settings or make your own Guitarists from scratch using this feature.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

Check it out! www.pgmusic.com/?vid=2AgfV7emdLQ

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
