I'm waiting for a "PARTIAL BIAB" app for my iPad which includes (only that part is already worthwhile) a transpose function for sheetmusic. In fact I don't understand why BIAB didn't develope it since it will boost the use of BIAB in general enormously. To explain what I mean is that me and many many users with me, mostly use the BIAB program to edit, print and tranpose music before printing but now primarly printing to pdf files for iPad (nowadays instead of paper). Untill now biab sheet music was used by all my band members (3 bands) I know and see the same on many jam sessions. However nowadays everybody starts using iPads or alike and read music from pdf files (books)!
As known the "iReal b" app is used by many to transpose music on the spot. However it only contains chords. That may be sufficient for many musicians but many others like to have the presence of some music notes as well. The standard BIAB program has this transpose function already built in. So just an app which is able to use BIAB files and show the file at iPad. It cannot be a difficult task for a BIAB programmer as long as you don't try to get your whole BIAB program with all the functions into the app. Just such a partial program can be sold for good money and it will boost the use of BIAB in general. So what is delaying you?? And by the way "on the spot" means without the necessity of a wifi or 3G connection!

Since 2 month I use the iGigBook reader containing now already (in my case) 67 books. Very nice since on any occasion when somebody comes up with a number the music is directly available for me. Only of course as long it will be played in the original key. Almost on any occasion one wants to play the music many times a different key due to the presence of a singer. So if you make such a transpose function available everyone wants to use BIAB

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".


Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
