Jump to new posts One Song won't transpose. Several other songs do transpose. by cfcboc @ 27 minutes 36 seconds ago

Using BIAB 2021 (840) So I pulled up a song to work on it and find a good style to use. Found a style and loaded it into the song. Played just fine in the Key of F. Did a transpose using the screen transpose function, moved the Key from F to C in the First column to set key AND transpose. Chords on screen all changed to the key of C. Generated the Song, but playback continues in Key of F. Tried the Edit Menu: Transpose function using semitones. Same result, no transpose but chord signatures co

Jump to new posts Help with new GPU...what to buy by Planobilly @ Today at 10:30 PM

Hi, The Radeon RX570 I got from Newegg for the i9 computer I built is not working correctly. Newegg will not take it back so I have to try to deal with the MFG. OK what ever. I want to buy another GPU under $600 to put in the i9. What do you recommend? I will put the RX 570 back in if it ever gets replaced by the mfg or put it in the new i5 machine. I am really tired of all the made in china BS. Turn all this computer crap off and go back to two inch Billy

Thanks Pipeline! I wasn't aware of CTRL+T so far. That's a very useful option until there are truely movable and truely maximizable floating windows.

If it could be like Biab with Movable Piano Roll Window. Do you use ctrl-T to hide the top toolbar. 2 Monitors will give them both full.
rharv & Charlie, ok - I've checked both so far but my files didn't have any BiaB markers, so that's why I couldn't find out what kind of markers those are. I haven't really used the Data Filter so far, but I'll integrate it more consciously now. Thanks, U2!

Thanks Dan! I grabbed it and it appeared instantly in Native Access so I downloaded and installed. It has a lot of nice sounds. And can't beat the price!

Hi James, Nice song and I quite like the spoken vocals (not whole song). However it would be improved by rolling off the vocals at around 130 Hz - they are very boomy. No need to re-record - just a 2 minute tweak in your DAW. Best Regards Nigel
This is not a sustainable model, and no one would become a songwriter based on this level of pay.

Hi Scott, Great song and excellent guitar intro - could have done with some more fills and breaks from that guitarist. Best Regards Nigel

That is a really cool-looking guitar. I think I would like the Bigsby. The first choice for me has been Kahler tremolo and second Floyd Rose. I am not sure what you call that white stuff out the window but I am pretty sure I don't want Cheers, Billy

Hi Andi, The song sounds quite promising - however the vocals are very far back in the mix. I would like to hear a remix with the vocals up front and the treble taken off them. Best Regards Nigel

Ok if we are showing recent guitar purchases, I’m falling in love with my first guitar with a Bigsby. Bought used. The Bigsby suits me so much better than a strat type trem. Gretsch Electromatic 5410t “Rat Rod”

Hi Charlie. This thread interests me because as an old guy (i'm 66) I am bored with the same old- same old in Biab. I am looking to take my music in new modern directions. I have even got a new controller keyboard (m-audio oxygen pro 61)...Yeah .

floyd Got a bit of writers block in stating the superlatives about your song. Really notch etc. Deserves all the wonderful accolades it has received. Great vocal and a superb production. If Dave is reading this - the guitar at 2.05 sounds like the song Simple Man. Almost posted our song called "Wasted" - might do so soon - slightly different type of wasted however. Peter

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
