Hi,

I have tried to use the possibility to Export a Band-In-A-Box composition in XML-File and use it with other Notation SW like MuseScore and Sibelius. This just because in BIAB is not possible to have a layout with differents measures per rows.
When I have opened the XML-File into the other Application I stated that more Lyric words or part of word was missing.
A bigger surprise was to stated that some chords was also changed... (F#m7 displayed as Dm7)
Why this behaviours?
Is it a BIAB problem or a problem of the others SW?
The same file imported in Sibelius has another outfit as in MuseScore and the amount of corrections that i have to do to have a good layout is very time expensive that is easier to write the file in place of import it and do modifications!!!
Is there a valid reasons because is not possible to have a flexibel layout in BIAB that adopt a different numbers of measures per row if the amount of notes or Words is not the same in all measures?
This behaviors was stated into BIAB 2016, but is still present into BIAB 2017.
Thank you for an answer that allow me to appreciate the features of the new XML-Format.

Regards
Giovanni

It is possible to have different numbers of bars per rows in the Lead Sheet.

Hi Giovanni,

I use MuseScore 2.0.3 and I've found that it reads XML files exported from BIAB very well. Chords (including X9sus and slash chords) were interpreted with 100% accuracy. Below is how I used it.


EXPORT SETTINGS
These are shown on the top image below.


AFTER IMPORTING INTO MUSESCORE
The imported XML included two staves and two bars of BIAB's count-in.

1. To delete the first two bars...
(a) Select the measures.
(b) Use "Edit | Measure | Delete selected measures"

2. To delete the second staff...
(a) Choose "Edit | Instruments"
(b) Select "Staff 2" in the right-hand list and then click on "Remove".

Hope this helps.
Noel

it is interesting, but probably desired size adjustment bar according to the amount of notes and text set not?

Thanks to all that give me an answer...
I will investigate deeper and report if I find where is the BUG with the Chord F#m7 that is transformed into Dm7 and why some text are not diplayed.

Giovanni

D/E became Asus in bar 7.

What happened to the double bar at the end of bar 7?

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
