Band-in-a-Box Wishlist
Hmmmm.... I doubt that is a problem with the BiaB program itself. That is definitely only related to a Windows O/S function. I tried here at it works for me (Windows 10, latest BiaB build). Can you advise the exact steps? What you have running, minimized etc? Does it work for all other programs and only not for BiaB? What happens if you press Windows Key and Tab? Does BiaB appear in the screen list and allow to select it?
doesn't work on RB 32 bit either so if RB 32 bit is RB 2020 then its been broken for a long time

This didn't seem to be a problem a couple updates ago, but now BIAB 2021 is not responding to Alt + Tab in Windows 10 (to scroll through your open windows).

What I love about your songs is that you do your own thing and don't seem to care much about anything else, musically speaking - which is, to me, absolutely fantastic. This is top notch, once more. So uplifting. And the lyrics ... yes. Oh, and your vocal technique: WOW. :-) Congratulations - sincerest congratulations.

Standing ovation from me. The lyrics are simply extraordinary, and the music is just perfect for them. Love every word and every phrase. Beautiful guitar solo in the middle. This is nothing short of an instant classic, for me. Bravo. P.S. the mother in this song sounds so much like my own. It's like I could hear her advice echoing in my ears. I kinda cried a little. Thanks.

Hi Mario, After a hard and difficult day you can't beat playing the blues to bring you round. This is just SO relaxed and nicely done - I always like your jazz-blues stuff. Beautiful. ROG.

Do they stay the same amount of time apart, or does one wander further and further from the other?

Beautiful!!! This is an original of yours, right? Wow!!! Never out of place anywhere along the great hymns, and that's saying something. Love it. Bravo.

Hi Chulaivet, A super-cool, funky, jazz-blues. Loved it. The feel of the track reminded me of a British band from the 1980s called Shakatak, who you won't have heard of, but play a similar funky style. Fabulous bass which really drives the song along and the guitar work is excellent. Great vocals throughout and clever lyrics which stay with you long after the song has finished. Nicely done! ROG.

In my test, I did Melody, Edit, Copy to Soloist Track first. Then I transposed the melody track and muted it. This way, you hear the melody in the correct pitches coming from the Soloist track.

David, oldmuso, you guys are so kind!! I appreciate your help and I'll try your methods once I get this thing working. It's not the writing process which has me so frustrated, you know? It's the actual BIAB process. Going to give it one more try and then if I still can't get it to work properly I'll ask for help in the live chat. It might be that it didn't install correctly or something. Honestly don't know.

I don't know if you know already about this issue on Mac/BIAB... I am under mac mojave and I have confirmation that it is the same thing under big sur, there is a problem when writing chords especially when adding the bass different from the chord, it's BIAB who randomly chooses the note, we type F he writes A etc with the "chord option" it is the same, he refuses to write the bass one chooses and biab chooses another one, another time he does not want to enter do # and you have to wri

Jump to new posts Re: PB d'ecriture de note dans une portée by Voltrane @ Yesterday at 11:18 PM

Je confirme! Galère totale pour rentrer des notes: la note rentrée est toujours beaucoup plus basse que celle demandée (un sol au lieu d’un do par exemple). Imprécision totale de la souris pour modifier, etc.Bref impression de toujours viser à côté même en modifiant les paramètres de l’écran (« par défaut » ou « à l’échelle »). Rien n’y fait. Je suis sous Macpro, Big Sur et BIAB à jour du patch correctif.

Hey Dero.... I thank you for giving it a spin and the kind words. Anything positive from our peers certainly means a lot to us song writers. Hey Moto.... I thank you also taking the time to listen and comment favorably. Agreed, that BIAB backup band is the best thing since the invention of bacon. Much appreciated....have a great weekend.
