+1 Bump. This is an important (and currently non-functioning feature). Even if users were prompted asking if it's ok if song can take a longer time to generate before playing, it'd be fine. It's not really a solution to manually copy choruses transposed multiple times when one wants to cycle through fifths, etc...

Please fix! (I really do like the software, BTW...)

At this point, they should remove this feature. Keeping a broken feature for years is simply not serious.

Remove it or Fix it. Don't leave more broken software laying around. That is simply extremely unproductive.

Very good, thank you for letting us know, Alyssa. Your feedback to us on this kind of issue is very helpful.

If it helps, my memory of this feature is that it did work acceptably at one time. I don’t use it so I don’t know what happened, but I remember testing it prior to its new release.

True...this never worked. So i audio export one chorus in C changing the G7 last bar to Ab7 (prep for Db). Then bring that 1 chorus into another audio app that seamlessly transposes each play upward by a semitone. It works great..and the best we have for now. I was hoping that freezing tracks might help this in BIAB...but alas, it doesn't.

So, approx 2 yrs later, this feature is still kind of buggy.
Only just updated to BIAB 2021 (using 2008 version for years).
Just made a 4 bar practice track (midi, not realtracks) to learn a certain riff in all keys. BIAB transposes the last 2 beats of the last bar early.
A work-around was to add another bar, as a rest (or with just drums) at the end. That bar is transposed but no chord is sounded.
Then it plays correctly. But it does not render correctly as an audio file, nor even as a midi-file. No transposition in those files.

It should be possible to render in real time from midi with the changes: https://www.pgmusic.com/tutorial_ptwrender.htm.

That said, scripts in "Transcribe" can automatically transpose rendered audio:
https://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/scripts.html

This works rather well. Open the file, then drag the desired script onto the window. The scripts can be edited in Notepad.
