Jump to new posts MinorMaj7 chords by RexBagonia @ 12/10/18 06:50 AM

Hi everyone, I recently purchase the new version, and it seems to me that when I enter a minorMaj7 chord the software just play a plain minor 7 chord. Never had that issue with a previous version. Did I missed something here ? Thanks, Maxime

Hi Well personally I don’t like it dull and grey. But then I don’t like the new BIAB gui, and always use the old one. This trend of grey plain interface and things buried behind drop down menus just doesn’t work for me I like every thing on top and handy and in color. But that’s just me I guess. Mike

Hi Cerio I had the same problem but not sure my solution will help but this is what I did When I did the download I then started the installation - I came to the window to which you assign the drive The top one says normally assigned to drive C. so I did this and had the problem as the my main BB is on internal dive E. I should have done it all to Drive E EDIT - I did uninstall everything BB before I started again After contacting support they told me that I should not split the download as

You did a great job on this, Scott. Love the guitar tones, you played it perfectly. Love the backing track choose too. It has a smoky, mysterious vibe to it which I liked. I think I speak for us in that we're glad you came back from your hiatus. Great work and thanks for sharing

Everytime i try to render video in BIAB 2019 i recieve a message, that VJT application is not installed, and that i shold install a newer version. I bought BIAB 2019 (ultrapak) 5 days ago, and installed everything on my up-to-date Windows PC. I've tried to check for any updates - but no luck. It was according to PGMusic solved in the 2018 version, but doesn't work in the 2019 version.

Wow - you did an outstanding job on this one The guitar's tone has so much emotion here, and the backing tracks were the perfect match. It is beautifully solemn, and you can tell it comes from the heart. Not a thing I' d change on this one - thanks for sharing!

Very cool, Noel, thanks! BTW, you said on a different thread that this feature was only available for the new realdrums released in 2019. NashvilleEven8 realdrums has been around for a while, so it looks like at least some of the older realdrums will have this ability. I'll be making good use of this!

Thoroughly enjoyable Donny. Very smooth indeed, and you've certainly captured an absolutely perfect feel for a slideshow backing.

Thanks for your reply. There's no songzw1.bin file in any directory. I've deleted several SongListTemp4.bin files in differents folders / subfoders inside c:\bb, but that doesn't solve the problem. BIAB keeps asking for a rebuild each time I click on the Song Button icon, making this feature absolutely unusable for me.

Hi, friends ! I have moved over to Li´s place and have been without my gear for quite a good time, so if anyone of you have been wondering where he´d gone that is the answer ! As I am working to get my gear to function I started to listen to old tunes from way back then and to my surprise there were some comments I had not noticed and so I have to beg your pardon for that ! I hope that you will forgive me for not having brought you my deepest thanks for your most kind words earlier and can bu

I would delete the SongzW1.bin file in the song directory and rebuild it just to make sure your original song database is not corrupted to start with. Make sure that file even exists to begin with. If not, that is a big problem. If so, it could be corrupted. If it does not fix the problem, we move on to other possibilities.

Hi Nigel, As far as I can make out, set 800 is from one of the bonus packs. Are the N/A RTs in both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the software? Also, did you install over the top of an existing \bb installation (this is the method that a number of people on the forum use, myself included)? Lastly, was there a time when you had RTs sets 301-328 working? (These are the new 2019 tracks.) For what it's worth, I'm just sitting at the moment wondering if maybe these RTs didn't install proper

Excellent!! ++on all aspects: composition, performance, production, concept, etc., etc.! I especially liked the step-wise base line (over diminished chord, I think) that you used, as well as slight minor movements in the verse melody, with some suspended notes that resolved so interestingly. You are a one-man band, Torrey! No need to apologize for any of the playing.. This is a great example of having a clear concept in mind, then not being able to 'sift' through the BIAB elements to find th

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
