Hi there ,

if I compose or give in a certain melody in BIAB , will BIAB
chose the correct chords automatically or do I have to chose
the correct chords myself ??

Which BIAB version should I buy ?

Thanks for your answer

Udo

Hi Udo - I think it depends on how committed you are AND hoiw much you are prepared to spend. I have UltraPlusPak and have never regretted it. If you start with PlusPak, you will not have enough RTs etc to keep you excited in my opinion.
Its best to enter the chords yourself. You CAN use the Auto Chord Wizard to try and find chords to fit your mel;ody line BUT if its only a solo melody the program will have little guidance as to key and nuance and so may come up with the wrong chords.
Regards
Ian

I bought the basic pro pack 4 months ago and I need lots more so can't wait to get the ultraplus PAK and then I can buy the 49 pack I believe.
The starter pack will leave you wanting.

Hi Ian ,

Thanks for your interesting answer.I play guitar and
a Tyros 5 and I wanted the BIAB to help me to find
the right chords.
I don't mean Tonica , dominate and Subdominante
but sometimes you think it is the correct chord but
its not and that single wrong chord leads you on a complete
wrong track if you know what I mean

Anyway thanks for your opinion

Cheers
Udo

Udo,

If you play guitar, bookmark this website and look at where your fingers are on certain chords you are not sure of.

It is hardly ever wrong.

Enter those in.

BIAB is pretty good with 80%. Use this for the other 20.

I use the Audiophile version only because I need every Real Track and I wanted them uncompressed. Worth the money to me.

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
