I just upgraded so now it is 508. Good to know what that number is. Do they send out a message when new upgrades come online?

I wonder if they will fix the problem of the played note not turning red in lead sheet or fake sheet view.

All new updates to BIAB are announced at the top of the BIAB for PC or BIAB for Mac user forums as appropriate. They are always a sticky post (they stay at the top).

As to this, you should start a new thread: problem of the played note not turning red in lead sheet or fake sheet view.

No. To change the key, select the bar and press Function key F5 (or right-click the bar), then change the key using the Bar Settings dialog:

Part marker and key changes are independent, but there is a good reason to use them together. One of the things the part marker does is call for a fill in the measure before. It usually sounds good, and appropriate for a key change.

I am trying to enter the notes for a song that has a has a fill between key changes. Is there some way to indicate that the notes are a fill, and not to be played or sung? (I am making a "play along"). And is there a way of independently controlling the volume of the notes in the fill?

Another question. The part of the song after the fill is the same as the irst part of the song. If I copy the first part of the song into the second part, will it be transposed when I change the key? I want it to be transposed.

This forum has amazingly helpful people. I am so grateful.

1. You could use a text box to enter some text like "not sung" or "instrumental".

2. The volume of the notes is controlled by velocity. There are a few ways to change this. If there aren't too many notes, the easiest way is via right-click on the note head and select "Edit Note" when in Notation Editor.... once there, just set the velocity to (say) 70, if the velocity is set to 90.

Copy the notes first using "Edit | Copy Special | Copy from... to...", then transpose using 'Edit | Transpose | Transpose from... to..." and, lastly, add the key change.

Regards,
Noel

Ok, Noel, I copied the music and transposed it. How do I add the new key signature in the middle of the music?

Click on the bar where the key change occurs and press F5 (Bar Settings) to set the new key. (See Videotrack's graphic above.)

That should do the job for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

....Not sure I understand.

BiaB creates the fill notes when you press "generate," but only in the bass, piano, drums, guitar and strings tracks. BiaB does not create anything in the Melody or Soloist tracks.

If are entering the notes for a song in the Melody or Soloist channels, BiaB will not enter the notes of the fill.

If you are entering notes in another channel, freeze it first. Write whatever you want. Take out the fill notes if you like. Freezing will prevent BiaB from changing what you wrote.

What would be the purpose of having fill notes marked "Do Not Play?"


This forum has amazingly helpful people. I am so grateful.

You got that right! It would be a good idea to experiment with Noel's advice. Its a very useful tool.

Right. Thanks Noel, that worked-- the key changed from C to D and then to Eb.

I had to go back and add the bars for the fill, and I think parts markers (caused from copying) are causing problems. How do you delete them?

I'm trying to make it look like the sheet music I am copying it from, so I can play along with it.

To delete part markers...

... simply click on the bar number until there is no part marker.

For example
One click on a bar number without part markers will add a blue part marker to that bar.

A second click on the bar number now enclosed in a blue box will turn the part marker to a green one.

A third click on the bar number now enclosed in a green box will remove the part marker (unless it's a style that has more than two part markers available).

Now I'm wondering if I am not dealing with a parts marker. Clicking on the bar number doesn't seem to do anything. There is a red square outline around the bar number in notation mode. Does that indicate a parts marker?

In the chord mode there is a red line under the bar number. When I click on the number in chord view the box around the number changes colour, as you say, but I can't get he red underline to go away no matter how many times I click it.


On another question, is there anyway to make some of the notes smaller, about the size of grace notes? I want all the notes for several bars to be that size. This is what the notes on the "fill" are like on the music I am copying from.

Thank you!

The red underline indicates a Bar Setting (Function Key F5) is in place.

The Part Markers are demonstrated here on bars 2, 6 & 10. Each time a part marker is clicked the next available part marker type is selected, usually in this order:
- No Part Marker,
- a: Blue: Part marker type 1,
- b: Green: Part marker 2

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
