In BIAB I have fine tuned my leadsheets (including visual transposition for my Saxophone track for a song.
If I open this song now in Realband I would like to have the same leadsheet as I have it in BIAB without doing all the finetuning for the leadsheet again.

Thanks
HansSax.

I don't use a lead sheet but many users seem to. I can understand why a user does not want to duplicate their work.

HansSax,
May I ask why not begin a project with RealBand?

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your response. What exactly do you mean with opening a project? What's to do?
Kind regards
Hans

I see this is going back a few months but, he means starting your song in RB in the first place. RB has it's own chord grid, can generate Biab tracks, has 48 tracks to play with. In many ways it's superior to Biab but they are different programs.

I suggest start your next song in RB and see how it goes.

Bob

Hi Hans,

I apologize for not answering your question in a reasonable period of time. I did not see your question until now.

A project is a song file. Band-in-a-Box creates SGU or MGU song projects. RealBand creates SEQ song projects. You can start a song in Band-in-a-Box, save the song as a SGU or MGU file and then open the file in RealBand. However, Band-in-a-Box can't open a RealBand SEQ file.

Even though you can move a project from Band-in-a-Box to RealBand, some settings don't follow. However which settings follow and which settings don't is not documented so you have to learn by experience what settings transfers from Band-in-a-Box to RealBand and which do not.

I'm not sure why song files are called projects instead of song files but it is a common practice for every music program I know. Even hardware digital recorders store settings like tempo, key signature and audio files in project folders.
