Jump to new posts Shots and Holds exceptions by CubanPeteNYC @ Yesterday at 11:48 AM

Hello everyone. Just picked up 2022 and I'm having a ball with the new features. I'm having one issue I bet you veterans can answer easily. Let's say I have hold/shot/rest somewhere and a solo instrument playing on Utility 3. How can I make Utility 3 not follow the hold/shot/rest? In the olden days of 2020 I just used the first letter of the instrument (bass, piano, etc..) and that did it. I've watched a few videos and looked for the answer but I've either missed it or looked in the wrong plac

It would really be nice to be able, in one step, to be able to take the contents of an ".MGX file's Melody track" and split its contents onto corresponding (by MIDI Channel Number) matching Utility Tracks (1-16), in one step, automatically. And as a bonus, have it set each Utility Track's MIDI Channel Number to match. It currently takes MANY steps using "Copy Special" to move tracks, one channel at a time, and then set the channel numbers, one at a time, on the Utility Tr

I finally just realized the quickest way to mute BIAB's audio response to my MIDI keyboard when I am wanting to play a separate Standalone instrument or do something in my DAW while BIAB is open... Simply mute the Thru track in the BIAB mixer. <<<<< I'm not sure how long this has been available, but it is a much easier solution than the way I was doing it before, using the menu method Options > MIDI input/output ports.

Jump to new posts Lyric Phrasing like FJ by MusicStudent @ 07/02/22 02:18 PM

Some times it is hard to know what a song does that makes you like it, but it is easy to know when you like it. In this case it is the rhythm of the lyrics and especially the phrasing of the bridge and how it is extended. The first time I heard this I immediatley thought of our FJ. He pharses like this in many of his songs. I have always love that.

Jump to new posts Do not automatically save automatic reconfigurations by Riccoboni @ 06/30/22 08:10 AM

BIAB change the current setting when the configuration does not correspond to what is set (for example by not finding the realtrack folder). In my opinion, the user should be asked if he accepts the reparameterization, and above all, the new configuration should not be saved automatically. This would make it possible to correct the pb outside BIAB then to relaunch BIAB with the initial configuration. This is also how most DAWs work (at least cakewalk) Not only do we waste time configuring by h

BIAB has some great styles in rock, country etc. Just wonderful! But most of the modern Caribbean styles such as reggae and soca etc. sound quite bad. Full of guesswork. Please take this seriously, PG Music - get musicians who know what they are doing, who play in that style! Not musicians mimicking who don't have a clue. For example, the Island Reggae styles "with organ", they are just a joke. The organ in these styles should have a certain rhythmic way of playing - and it's not pla

Jump to new posts Big Piano by Tech Teacher @ 06/25/22 06:20 PM

I’m a high school teacher and work in a lab environment. The big piano is really useful when teaching harmony, particularly for our younger students. I would love it if this became a VST (or was included in your DAW plug-in) for use in other music software. To date, I haven’t found anything similar. If I need to explain something, I will exit the software the students are using and open BIAB to demonstrate, this slows the lesson down.
