The intro 4 bars of my song should be drums only, however...after playing the lead in there is a piano chord on the downbeat followed by the drums only for the intro 4 bars .

How should this be setup so that there is no piano chord on the downbeat just drums ? and why is there a piano chord on that downbeat ?

screen shots may be helpful

The problem is that your first chord is a "held chord" (3 dots). You want a "rest chord" except for the drums (1 dot).

Gm7.d means to rest all instruments except the drums
Gm7..d means to play a shot (hit) of all instruments, but the drums keep playing
Gm7...d means to hold the chord, but the drums play on through

Hope that helps.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
