I agree and have asked for this before.
There are so many apps available for any of the above hardware choices, especially if loaded with 4.0, or above. And I seem to find new ones, almost everyday, pointed directly at musicians, from pro to entry-level!

I really believe it would turn out to be the most active forum, especially if we could broaden the scope, to include all the portable hardware on the horizon, with the potential of making Peter and stockholders very rich men. Certainly on MY wishlist is a REAL BAND clone with full midi capability...syncing with both PC Windows users and Mac users, which should be growing by leaps and bounds.

I'm not sure where to post this but I just can't believe something as delete and insert bars are not something that can be done on the iPad app. I called and spoke to tech support thinking I must just be missing something. But I was told it can't be done. So I would like to request that feature
Thank you

I second the motion to have a separate I/Pad/Pod/Phone forum. I'm having lots of difficulty getting my BAIB App to work reliably and there's no place to search for and to post questions about BAIB-Ipod app.

Count me in on the request for a separate I/Pad/Pod/Phone forum. I am excited just thinking of the potential that exists with my IPhone 4S in regard to the future things that I can imagine that PGM is planning for these gizmos.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.

There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.

To learn more about this feature, read the "Advanced Chord Entry and Editing Features" topic when you click here.
