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.

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus). Il y a des améliorations un peu partout dans le SongPicker, les Intros automatiques avec Basse/drums ou drums seuls, l'extension du nombre de titres avec + 3.400 titres nouveaux, MusicXML, la guitare avec vues "gaucher" et "élève", la fonction glisser-déposer, l'affichage multi-fenêtres de l'Assistant Accord Audio et bien plus encore !

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
