I would like to compose a MIDI pattern over one, or multiple, measures and have the same intervals and note durations transpose to follow the chord sheet. It would be even better if I could compose a four pattern sequence, say in A major, and then if I have a minor playing for two bars, it would follow the first two bars of the original pattern, and if I input one bar in, for example, a half diminished chord, than it would employ just the first measure's pattern for that chord, etc.

Thanks in advance!

BIAB stylemaker should work - it does for me.

All patterns are built around a C7 chord. BIAB can then transpose and make all the non-major chords from that.

I built my styles using existing BIAB styles, although BIAB provides a tool called Hybrid which allows you to pick patterns from other styles to make your style. You can select pattern from any instrument. I guess you could use drums, but I stayed away and use real drums.

You can import a A part, a B part, or both, and even combine an A from one instrument / style with a B from another.

I never built patterns from scratch, but I did change octave on occasion.

I agree. If you want to use what's available in BIAB, it sounds like Stylemaker will do the job for you. It's worth checking out. As Dave mentions, Stylemaker will build all BIAB's chords from the pattern you define as MIDI entry.

If you go to the link below...

http://www.pgmusic.com/videos.bbwin.htm

...and look under the "Advanced" section, you'll find a 37 minute video on how to use Stylemaker.

While the video clip uses an older version of BIAB, the principle is exactly the same today except that Stylemaker is now found under "File >> Stylemaker".

Regards,
Noel

Or just look for the "Top Hat" on the tool bar.

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.
