Hi,
I would like to use the BIAB app (on android phones or tablets) for displaying song chords during live performances.

For this purpose I would suggest the following functions to be included in a future update:

- Making the size of the chord symbols adjustable would allow to read them from a distance during a performance

- BIAB should allow to adjust the orientation of the screen(in order to be able to switch from portrait to landscape mode and to zoom in on the chords or notation)

- BIAB should allow to change the number of bars displayed in each line or it should automatically adjust the number of bars per line depending on the chosen font size

- It would also be great if one could not only read the chords but also the melody on the device either by including a note or leadsheet mode on the app

These adjustments would greatly enhance the usability of the app which already includes the basic functions and I am sure that they would attract a lot of musicians who want to get rid of all the paperwork.

Thank you for making a fantastic app even better,
Jo

I had a wish for BB2GO for android that I thought I had mentioned but I can't find it so THIS looks like where I should have posted it - here goes.

I would REALLY like to see a default "Juke Box" mode based on the folder that the last song was opened from. This would allow us to construct a SET of Songs to practice along with - or just listen to for Chord Change Ear Training - WITHOUT having to use the Open File Dialogue for each song - Amazing

Not much action on this idea - Maybe I should explain it better.

I have all the DEMO songs loaded onto my Android phone and it's great for ear training for chord changes in all the differnet styles.

The only problem is when I want to move on to another song the OPEN File menu defaults to the SONGS folder.

What if we wanted to use an SD Card for more songs? Being able to change the default folder would be a GREAT option in the Preferences.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
