great little program!

I would like it to have the following feature:
if a user enters a bunch of notes into a text box, the program would report all chords that contain those notes. I often know what chord I want to put into the BIAB or RB chord window, but I don't always know the name of it, or the best sounding chord with the notes I want

Alternatively, this could go in the chord builder.

Agreed. This would be a very useful app for composing.

In the interim, try using the separate applet on the 2012 BiB CDROM. It's called Guitar Chord Dictionary. It installs to the desktop as a standalone app. If you have an idea of the root or a location on the guitar neck, it shows a bunch of decent grips with each note spelled out in a list and on the neck. It's a timesaver.

I was using the 2011 BIAB Pro CD and upgraded to the 2013 UltraPlus PAK and have not found the guitar chord dictionary app on either. Is it possible it was a bonus during 2012?

I don't know Jim, but a call to PG Music Sales would tell you which bonus paks contained what when.

Thanks for the advice Matt.

I contacted PG Music support and they confirmed the guitar chord dictionary was not part of the bonus packs either time I purchased BIAB. They advised the guitar chord dictionary is a standalone program available for purchase here: Guitar Chord Dictionary

They also indicated a similar program is available for piano: Piano Chord Dictionary

Once again, thanks for the advice.

that's exactly the app I'm talking about. I do use it already, but I'm requesting the added feature as described in the first post.

I already have a spreadsheet I made that does what I want, but it doesn't PLAY the chord as the chord dictionary does. Being able to add notes in a specific order then hear how that combination would sound would be very helpful to me.

Well, BB has a feature that can name and enter a chord onto the chord grid when it is played on a MIDI guitar or keyboard.

Chord Entry via playing the chord. Naming will be by the lowest note played and is thus assumed to be the bass note.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

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!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
