I just got back into BIAB after a few years away from it (recently switched to Mac).
I was looking for a user site (her name is Alahna sorry not sure of the spelling so the search didn't quite work) she had a fantastic list of BIAB songs that she kindly used to share.

If anyone knows if this is still available, I would appreciate hearing about it

thanks

I don't think her web site is available any more; there was a legacy link to download the BIAB files, but I don't know if that one is active either.

Another place where you can get started with a number of BIAB files is located here.

hi jford:

just went to the mmissary web site and I got a warning (enclosed screenshot) that it may contain harmful programs, know anything about that? Perhaps it's because it has lots of ZIP files?

Downloaded every zip looked in them and scanned with AntiVirus.
Some of them just contain exe files for chords, sequencers etc..
You can just delete them as you shouldn't need them.
But they are overwhelmingly BIAB song files and midi files.

John,

I also went to that site and on trying to download the first zipped user tracks for inspection Norton Internet Security gave me a triple red threat go back immediately before you computer is eaten alive warning.

The ominous code red malicious website ahead warning, but I see their other stuff is church related.

I am afraid to download anything now though that I saw that warning.

Maybe the comments above mean others have opened their stuff and nothing bad has happened??

I spent the last hour n a half unzipping zips inside of zips.
The Download should now just contain SGU/MGU/MID/TXT in folders only.
Anything else like old 16bit exe's were removed.
Good luck deciphering the DOS song file names.
PRETTYW.MGU that's an easy one !

Many of the files were created before BIAB supported long file names, hence the 8.3 file name structure. There is a command in BIAB to batch rename files based on the Song Title (works for most of the songs but not all). That will get you a long file name (something I did many years ago).

Thanks, I thought you would have to do that manually by the song name in BB.
Went To File > File Utilities > Auto-rename song files to long filenames..
It didn't ask me for a folder after click OK, it just went straight ahead and renamed the files in bb\RealTracks Demos to a 65 limit, so I don't know what demos won't play now ??

Then I saw in the File Utilities Menu "Change Directory Path" so did that but it said it couldn't find any as there is no "Search Sub directories" !

Hmmm, I'll take a look at that this evening. I know I've used that feature many times (to rename web downloaded files), but haven't in a while.

I am new to BIAB. It would be tremendously useful to be able to download .SNG files done by other users to see how they go about accomplishing certain things. Sometimes it seems to be a matter of "tricking" the product into doing what you want. Is there anywhere we can do that? Or is that a "no-no?"

Thanks...

You certainly may share SGU files (many have and still do), except for those you may have purchased from others (Bob Norton offers what he calls BIAB FakeDisks, where he creates SGU accompaniment files to go along with many of the popular fakebooks on the market - he did all the work, so deserves the compensation). However, others are free to share their files as they see fit.

Thank you very much Pipeline. You made this very easy for me. Last night I made a mess of trying to unzip and organize them but never finished due to time constraints. Tonight I grabbed all of them from your dropbox. And already edited up a good realtracks version of Tracy Chapman's Give Me One Reason.

Folks

I'll have to look but I seem to remember there was already a Allanah provided TEXT file that listed ("decoded" DOS 8.3 to actual) song title in all those files - but I don't remember

also most of those songs (NOT all but vast majority) have been "borrowed" from Allanah and zipped up by ASCII alphabet letter (special character, numbers and a through z) at the Yahoo BIAB files archive

so there are a lot of the same or variations of the same Allanha (hard work) - all with long file (song title ) names

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
