Jump to new posts Musescore review followed by one for Sibelius by Larry Kehl @ Today at 01:18 PM

Lovers of MuseScore, and I think we have a lot of users here grit your teeth, watch WHOLE thing, the end might surprise you. No Animal was harmed doing the making of these video's (and will probably be improved because of it). I think Finale's and Dorico's "turn in the barrel" is coming up.

This is a sweet internal sound card. Suggested Retail is about $249 US. Nice to see there are sound card options besides Creative. I like Creative but competition makes everyone better. +++ Review Link +++ +++ Manufacturer Product Link 01 +++ & +++ Manufacturer Product Link 02 +++

Jump to new posts Chord Position on Lead Sheet by lgkownacki @ Yesterday at 08:04 AM

Please allow me to save the position of the Chords "universally set to one position." Right now I change the position to "2" and close the dialog box only to have to do this again when I reopen a song file.

Jump to new posts amplitube presets by Bob Calver @ Yesterday at 03:09 AM

one of the articles i read on the PG Music site refers to amplitube presets. i don't have any - just amplitube 3 and when i open the preset field there's nothing there. when the article describes a preset did it mean what the operator entered to get the sound, or are there actual presets like there are for other PG plugins? can i get them?

Jump to new posts Songpicker sort fixed but.... by LBL @ 03/21/19 01:46 PM

They fixed the sort issue with the newest build. However now I can't get rid of the key signature in the lead sheet window. Even when I uncheck "show key signature". This has never happened before.

The SongPicker within Band-in-a-Box® accesses the folder of your choosing for easy opening of all your favorite songs, or song files purchased from a third party or shared by a friend, member of your band, etc.

Now, with this redesigned feature, you can view the chord progression for your selected song without having to open it in Band-in-a-Box® and can copy the information from this window right into a TXT file!

The new progress bar is a great visual aid when you're updating the folder - for instance, if you load the ENTIRE Band-in-a-Box® folder, that's over 15,000 songs - and it's nice to see the progress/confirmation on screen. Not that you'll be waiting long - since the SongPicker now builds lists faster!

Plus, there's so many filters added - searching for the song you want has never been easier!
