Bonjour et Bonne Année à toute la communauté Band-in-a-Box,

Il faut savoir que la saisie des accords dans Band-in-a-Box doit se faire à partir du clavier en mode MAJUSCULES. Sinon (en mode minuscules) çà marche quand même à l'exception du # qui ne fonctionne pas.

Voilà enjoy Band-in-a-Box 2018 et sachez- pour ceux qui n'ont pas commandé cette version 2018 - qu'il y a une promotion sur les tarifs jusqu'au 15 Janvier.

Avant tout Bonne année à tous présents ici sur ce forum.

Je suis tout nouveau sur ce forum et cherche à me renseigner sur Band in a box 2018. Cette version est apparemment déjà sortie en version anglaise.
Je suis intéressé par la version française 2018 mais selon PG Music elle ne sortira qu'en février ou mars.

Tu parlais d'une promo 2018 avant le 15 janvier je suppose qu'il s'agit de la version anglaise et je me demande si je pourrai en avoir une aussi si j'achète la version française en février ou mars ???

Aura t-on également l'offre gratuite "bonus 49-Pak 2018".
Au cas où tu possèdes cette version 2018 j'aimerais avoir ton avis ?

Merci d'avance pour tes réponses

Bonjour Michael,

Band-in-a-Box 2018 actuellement en promotion jusqu'au 15 Jan est en anglais. Ceci dit, dès la sortie de la version française, tu auras une mise à jour pour franciser Band-in-a-Box. Cette mise à jour sera gratuite.
Les conditions en vigueur pour la version anglaise du Bonus49 Pak, sont applicables à la version française.
Enjoy !

Bonjour Daniel et merci pour l'info,
Je rajoute qu'on peut rester en minuscule et avoir le #, il suffit de:
- Soit en cliquant sur 3 (du pavé numérique)
- Ou bien sur Shift+3 (du pavé alphabétique)

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: - 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

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 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.
