So I read a post from the 2017 Xtra Style contest about the song

where MusicStudent posted about being able to input his chords into NI strumming plugin to create his own strumming pattern. How do I go about doing that?

Pipeline provided some instructions on this very topic.

About a year ago we had a good go over with Strummed Acoustic. There is also a video out there which I will provide a link.

Strummed Acoustic and ToonTracks EZKeys both work very nice with shared chord charts from BIAB.

I think Pipeline and I were the only folks here who did this. He give me the information. I made the video to remind myself how to do it. This was all year ago but I have used this many times.

Enjoy

We need a library to store these sort of power tips. Pipeline helped me with switching Realtracks from f/x'ed to DI but I'd have to search the forum to find that post should I want to do that again!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
