Free Biab Chord Picker Tool

Posted by: Pipeline

Free Biab Chord Picker Tool - 03/28/18 04:37 AM

It should just run standalone, any problems just install AutoHotKey
you can also right click > Properties > Compatibility > Run As Admin

Use the Bass, Drum, Piano.. buttons to set the instrument/s to play over a Rest, Shot or Hold.
Use the < > to move or use the keyboard arrows.
Use - for a comma between chords.
Use / for slash chords.
Use the Tabs to select your key and scale.

EDIT: Fixed m6 m7 Ma7, added View Mode button.

EDIT: Update,
Added Set existing Chord to Push 1/8 or 1/16
Added View Mode Normal/Compact
Added DAW Plug-in Mode (small)

EDIT: Update
Added Remove Push Shot Hold or Rest from Chord
Added GUI Color Picker
Added Move BB Window with cursor keys or mouse


Exe and script
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mifqr8ibtnk6f4h/Biab%20Chord%20Picker%20beta%201.f.zip?dl=1

Script only
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qluu9iv9plk3ndk/Biab%20Chord%20Picker%20beta%201.f.ahk?dl=1
To run the script only just install AutoHotKey then double click on the Biab Chord Picker beta 1.0 script.ahk and it will run without having to use the exe.
If you open the Picker beta 1.0 script.ahk by dragging into Notepad you will see it is just simple text:





This is the easiest way, install AutoHotKey > Double click the BB Chord.ahk.
You can right click to Edit or Compile to an BB Chord.exe




Creating your own GUI:

I included the script, to edit it use SciTE4AutoHotKey or Notepad.
To create a GUI use SmartGUI then open in SciTE4AutoHotKey to add the the hotkeys.

So for each GUI Button you create e.g 13b5#9 put the code at the bottom,

this will send it to the Biab window, { } are used to send some special characters.

Code:
Gui, Add, Button, x372 y430 w90 h20 , 13b5#9

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Button13b5#9:
winactivate,ahk_class TBandWindow
Send  13b5{#}9
Return


You can use the GUI to do any Biab function by adding a button to send the shortcut keys or keystrokes to access the menus by sending down right and enter, see below.
If you have AutoHotKey installed just right click the script.ahk > Compile, this will create the GUI.exe
Use WindowSpy.ahk in the AutoHotKey Installation folder to get the window name to send the keys to an application, like ahk_class RealBand

So to create a MultiRiff Button for RealBand:
Code:
Gui, Add, Button, x10 y30 w60 h20 , MultiRiff

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ButtonMultiRiff:
WinActivate, ahk_class RealBand
Sleep, 500
Send, !{G 1}
Sleep, 100
Send, {Down 8}
Sleep, 100
Send, {Enter 1}
Return 


The Sleep is just a short pause, so it sends !=Alt + G 1 times
then goes Down the Generate menu 8 times then Enter to select MultiRiff.

So anything can be done with just one click of a button rather than having to navigate all through menus.

Using Combination Keys:
http://xahlee.info/mswin/autohotkey_key_notations.html

SmartGUI is simple to use, just drag in the button or any other components, save to file or clipboard, paste or open in SciTE4AutoHotKey or Notepad and add the keystroke send for each button.

Add this to the end to completely close the GUI so it's not running in the tray:
Code:
GuiClose:
GuiEscape:
ExitApp

To make the window always on top use:

Code:
Gui, 1: +AlwaysOnTop

in the GUI section.

or add a checkbox

Code:
Gui, Add, CheckBox, x730 y130 gUpdate vCheck, Always on Top

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

; Generated using SmartGUI Creator 4.0
OnMessage(0x115, "OnScroll") ; WM_VSCROLL
OnMessage(0x114, "OnScroll") ; WM_HSCROLL
Gui,  +Resize +0x300000  ; WS_VSCROLL | WS_HSCROLL	;+Resize (allows resize of windows)
Gui, Show, x277 y206 h682 w880, Biab Chord Picker Window, 

return


Update:
    Gui, Submit, NoHide
    If Check = 1
    {
        Gui, +AlwaysOnTop
    }
    else
    {
        Gui, -AlwaysOnTop
    }

Return

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool Update beta 2.0f (and for Earlier BB) - 05/02/18 08:36 PM

For earlier versions of Biab the only thing that needed changing was when you Edit the Chord in 2011 the chord is already highlighted but in 2018 it's not so i just took the highlight line out of the script.

For Earlier Biab versions ONLY:

The 2009-earlier should work on all versions as it uses the Chord Options dialog to edit the chords.
In the 2017 & 2018 version the set to Bass Drums Piano Guitar Strings shortcuts were left out, this prevents the Chord Picker Tool from working correctly using 2009 mode in 2017 & 2018, however PG should have a fix out soon for both 2017 & 2018 to add the shortcuts back.

When you start the new version for the first time you will be asked to set the version in the bottom left, you can then change versions at anytime to try what suites you best.

After the version is set you can then also edit the settings.ini located in the install folder.
This will let you easily add/modify the Custom User Actions keys in the User tab.
Here's an example of adding an Unfold action to CA11 (Custom Actions 1 button 1) it's a simple matter of filling in name=*** and funct=*** of the buttons you need.
Alt+E (Edit menu) Down 10 Right Down 5 and Enter
!E,{Down 10},{Right},{Down 5},{Enter}
** Save a copy of your settings.ini !!!
See Biab Chord Picker ReadMe.txt in the install folder for more details.

If you just click the buttons you will see what they do, it is pretty self explaining.
If you read back through the posts you will see how it all works.
If you can't work it out I will try and make a tutorial or video for it.

Biab Chord Picker Tool (Download) 2.2 32/64bit + Ealier & BiabVST Versions - 12/02/18 08:50 AM

BiabVST Chord Picker Tool version

This is set for Reaper but can be changed see WindowAHK-ID below.
If it works ok I can make a drop down for DAW choice.
It has not got as many editing functions as the Biab Chord Picker Tool but if they add chord edit to the VST it can be done.
You can change the Tempo with decimal point accuracy at any bar to follow the DAW tempo map with a button,
you can change Time Signature to 4/4 or 3/4 at any bar with a button.

Any problems right click > Run As Administrator

There is a bug in the current vst that will only add a shot hold rest push on a major chord.

AHK Script only
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper.ahk.zip

32bit exe
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper x86.zip

64bit exe
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper x64.zip

WindowAHK-ID finds the window ID of your DAW eg. ahk_exe reaper.exe
Run it and select the DAW window, if you post your DAW ID I will make a script for it.
To diy just replace all instances of ahk_exe reaper.exe with your ID in the script.

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool - 12/02/18 12:22 PM

Pipeline,

I'm not understanding how to use your latest tool, Window AHK.

1) Download WindowAHK-ID x64.zip to my desktop.
2) Extract to WindowAHK-ID x64.exe folder on my desktop.
3) Open the folder.
4) Find WindowAHK-ID x64.exe
5) Double click on WindowAHK-ID x64.exe and click through "unknown publisher" security warning.
6) Program window opens.
7) Now what?
Posted by: Pipeline

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool - 12/02/18 12:43 PM

7) Copy the window ID

This will tell AHK what window to send the keystrokes to.
If post that ID I will create a script and exe for that DAW.
Or just open the script in a text editor and replace all ahk_exe reaper.exe with your ID

Sent To: Bandlab Support

Quote:
"give all keystrokes to plug-in" is not working correctly.
If the window is active by clicking on the top of the vst window where the title is this makes the window Active and all keystrokes need to be sent to the vst.
At the moment you need to click on something inside the window for it to send this is not correct, in other DAW you only need to make the window Active without clicking on something inside the window.
In the attached gif when I activate the vst window on the left in Reaper it sends the keystrokes
when I activate the window on the right in BandLab AND set it to receive keystrokes it don't.
See I type the chord in on the left and it works but I type on the right and it don't.


Anyone else can send them one also if they like, just click Support in the Help Menu.

BiabVST Chord Picker Standalone.zip

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool, BiabVST, Standalone version - 12/22/18 01:39 AM

Hi Pipeline,

Edit: Ignore below, I managed to get it to work, but now I have a different problem, every time I enter a chord, the chord-picker minimizes to the tray. I can somewhat get it to work when I set BiaB and Chord picker to occupy the left and right sides of the screen, but then most of the options to the left of CP (such as the pushes and shots) are inaccessible. I realize this may be because I am on a laptop, and there is minimal "moniter real estate" but is there some way to get this working on a laptop nonetheless?



So much as I am ashamed to admit this, I've held off on installing this to date because I found all the lines of computer code a little bit intimidating, and told myself that I could get by with BiaB's built in "chord theory" function...which was one of my favorite upgrades of 2018 (or was it 2017?)

In any event, I just ran the installer (not the VST version) and the program launched in standalone, and I can't figure out how to get it to communicate with BiaB. Other than seeing the BiaB screen "blink" (disappear and reappear for a second) every time I try to enter a command, nothing else happens in the chordsheet regardless of what I do.

Please help!

Thanks in advance :-)

Deacon

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool, BiabVST, Standalone version - 12/22/18 01:55 AM

Another issue:

When I tried to utilize the "set bass" option (for which I had to minimize the BiaB screen because laptop) which I'm assuming should have launched the RT picker dialogue in BiaB, it instead launched an additional instance of BiaB with a clean chord-sheet.

Is this normal?

Thanks again!

Posted by: DeaconBlues09

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool, BiabVST, Standalone version - 12/22/18 02:44 AM

OK, I see another problem I have now is that I simply cannot get the bottom row of options, where the preview chord and "always on top" options reside, to display at all--even if I have the CP tool on full screen.

Again, I'm afraid this has to with me being on a laptop (I prefer running BiaB in my desktop, but the thing is that one third of the week I live and work in an entirely different city from my main residence where my desktop is, so sorry for being such a PITA with this...I really appreciate all the effort you put into this!)

I'm afraid not :-( Maybe a lower resolution but one of the aspect ratios listed below would work?

Also, while you're here, (and I suspect this may be related) I recently connected an additional monitor to my laptop using an HDMI cable so I could have a dual monitor display, and set the external monitor as my primary in Windows' settings and have been having a plethora of issues with resizing/minimizing/always on top windows, not just for BiaB/RB but in Reaper as well. Is there any way I can make my laptop "forget" about the second display or whatever so that it behaves like it did before I ever connected it?

Finally, with respect to ADSR Sample Manager: I installed the program on my C hardrive, but placed the majority of my loops on the external drive (F) because I have more space there. I don't want ASDR to crash if I boot it up when my F drive is not connected if, say, I want to use it in Reaper. Is this something I need to be concerned about? Can I simply run it from C and add a library from F such that it operates as paths do for plugins like in Reaper or Minihost?

Btw, sorry for bombarding you with all these questions. I would generally simply experiment, but I've had issues in the past where if you set a path, and it's no longer there on next bootup, you can have ugly crashes or inconsistencies that can persist till kingdom come :-(

Thanks again!

Re: Free Biab Chord Picker Tool, BiabVST, Standalone version - 12/22/18 04:07 AM

You should be able to go to the screen resolution settings click on the external monitor 2 and remove it, you may have to plug it in first, remove so you just have 1 set as primary monitor.
You may have to go into Ati/AMD or NVidia settings.

I have ADSR on C: and ACID Loops on D:\ added to the ADSR Library, sometimes it has to wake the D: up from sleep that will delay at first but once spinning you should be right.

could you please help Mr. Magoo by perhaps providing an actual download of the Mac version of the Free Biab & BiabVST Chord Picker Tool (look at the bottom of the page for the latest version.) Poor Mr. Magoo looked and looked but no luck . On the other hand if it is too much trouble then he is OK with that .

Have a look here https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=475833#Post475833 try the Java GUI and see if it works for you on the Mac as the tool can be created with java as there is no AutoHotKey app for Mac that will also create a GUI, unless you know of one ?
You can also request PG create a similar tool for users on both Win & Mac.

Biab Plugin Chord Picker Tool Generic v1.2 for Most DAWs - Updated - 09/21/19 01:28 PM

Biab Plugin Chord Picker Tool Generic v1.1 for Most DAWs
This should work with most DAWs.

The 2 DAWs I found so far that don't send the keystrokes to the Biab Plugin window are BandLab and Cubase, so to fix this issue use
PluginFlipFlop if you already have JBridge.
Just load PluginFlipFlop (instrument of FX) then load the Biab Plugin (instrument of FX) into it.
Using PluginFlipFlop in Cubase will keep the VST window on top always.
Let me know what works and what don't.
(the transport buttons up the top are not working)
(the ^ ^^ Pushes still need implementing in the Plugin)

Yea same deal as BandLab and Cubase.
Load PluginFlipFlop (FX or instrument) then load BBvst (FX or instrument) into it.
If the BiabVst don't stay on top use an Always On Top app like the one in the link Always On Top 1.3
Joao from JBridge is going to make it stay on top.

In Windows 10 if you are running Band in a Box as Administrator you will need to run the Chord Picker Tool also as Administrator to have access.
