Just making sure the great development team see how many views and how much support there has been for this missing feature grin

Oh man, I'm getting writer's cramp on this one. I just went back to review the whole thread, and while it seems like a little thing, I've given it perhaps more of my +1 votes than to any other request.

I hope it isn't hard to implement. My suggestions early on about some of the subtleties that would help shouldn't stop the basic 4/4 - 3/4 count-in issue. Let's start there.

+1 on the count being based on bar 1.

not trying to hijack, but
i can't help but think that this is a child-problem of the parental problem of PG's implementation of meter specification in biab.

seems the ability to specify the actual meter of the song other than 4/4 (3/4,5/4, 11/8, etc) would provide this desired feature and a host of other ones also.



but i could be wrong.

A 4+ YEAR WAIT SO FAR...

To have a very major program bug resolved.

Boy, I sure hope it's delivered in the next version.

There has been absolute forum members agreement, not one objection, but nothing happened in about 3 years.

This is a really important issue. If the song starts in 3/4, please just provide a 3/4 count in. Just like every musician in the real world does.

(Instead of looking at the time-signature of the song to decide the count-in, just look at the time-signature of the first bar. C'mon team, not hard, surely?)

Please support this PGM. This is a Wishlist for Product Improvements, not a lucky-dip wishing well. There is a difference. Please support this pragmatic request.


I also want to have 6/8 as an actual time signature and cut time. I'm want to make sure that the chord align with the song I'm playing.

I didn't see this very missing feature in the latest version, but hopefully the team could finally include it in one of the 2018 patches.

I very much hope that we wouldn't have to wait another year to have this long standing serious problem resolved. Unless someone can convince me otherwise, it's not a missing feature, it's a major design fault in the program. Nothing less.

+1. Since the 2018 edition notation supports alternate time signatures it would be nice if the automatic count-in matched the first time signature used in a song project.

It seems to me that it would be a whole lot more practical if Band In A Box just produced the count-in using the same time-signature as the first bar of the song. If the first bar plays in 3/4, the count in should automatically be in 3/4. This would be a great improvement.

Hope others approve.

A request to fix a genuine and very real operational bug in the program that frankly should still not be there.

This particular bug fix request is only 5 years old now. The fault is not imaginary. This can't really be impossible to fix. Action available? 2019? Can we possibly hope?

I am not agitating. Many feel strongly about this and don't want to and should not be let down for another year.

The bearing in my mouse wheel just seized up scrolling all the way from the original 2013 post to the latest 2018 post !

In the pic it's using a 4/4 style with the first 4 bars set to 3 beats per bar but the count-in bars are on 4 beats per bar.
Maybe as it's using that 4/4 style rather than starting with a 3/4 style it needs the 4/4 count-in bars ??
The only work around I can see is mute the count-in in prefs> count-in import a 3/4 count-in wav clip @ beat 3.

if bar1_beats == 3 then mute_count = 1 and play_count34_clip = 1
else mute_count = 0 end smile

3-4 count-in for 2 bars 4-4 120bpm.WAV

1. Options > Preferences > Count-in/Met > Uncheck Play Lead In & Audible Lead In
2. File > Import > Import Audio > Ok > Yes stereo
3. Audio > Set Audio Master (Base) Tempo.. > 120 (this will adjust count-in to your current bpm).

Still laughing, at least you brought some humor to this tragic situation.

If we do that then not a single song will have a count in. The Count-in is a global setting. cry cry cry cry cry
That's my other aging but very genuine Wish List item cry cry cry cry cry

This way you manually load the count wav clip you want, but if I can do it manually there's no reason why BB can't do that automatically with some if thens, I can also create it in the piano roll.
So there must be an easy fix for this ???

Unfortunately, another basic feature still not implemented in 2019 (yet?).

It's hard to image a system where the song starts in 3/4 and the user receives a 4/4 count-in.

Nobody here, as user, still understand why it is so difficult to implement !

Disappointement is growing...
