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.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
