As i made a midi backing track of it for someone, i am now kind of curious how one can make a style/song MGU version of Sting's fab country ballad in BIAB ... and i really don't mean that simplified Johnny Cash version. Thus in it's 5/4 or 9/8 beat. Using BIAB 2017 i couldn't do it easily as i hoped, but had to use Cubase to get it sort of right. -F

Hello Fiddler2007,

Band-in-a-Box works the best with 4/4 and 3/4 time signatures. To replicate more complex time signatures like this song you would need to adjust the number of beats per bar using Bar settings. Right click on the bar you would like to adjust and go to "Bar Settings", then in the top left corner of the window you would need to adjust the number of beats. Repeat this process until you have reached desired results.

This thread topic is for posting suggestions to add to the song database. For further solutions and how to's in Band-in-a-Box, visit our support page at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.htm

My Favorite Things - Seemingly Unlimited Flexibility!

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
