In BIAB I have fine tuned my leadsheets (including visual transposition for my Saxophone track for a song.
If I open this song now in Realband I would like to have the same leadsheet as I have it in BIAB without doing all the finetuning for the leadsheet again.

Thanks
HansSax.

I don't use a lead sheet but many users seem to. I can understand why a user does not want to duplicate their work.

HansSax,
May I ask why not begin a project with RealBand?

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your response. What exactly do you mean with opening a project? What's to do?
Kind regards
Hans

I see this is going back a few months but, he means starting your song in RB in the first place. RB has it's own chord grid, can generate Biab tracks, has 48 tracks to play with. In many ways it's superior to Biab but they are different programs.

I suggest start your next song in RB and see how it goes.

Hi Hans,

I apologize for not answering your question in a reasonable period of time. I did not see your question until now.

A project is a song file. Band-in-a-Box creates SGU or MGU song projects. RealBand creates SEQ song projects. You can start a song in Band-in-a-Box, save the song as a SGU or MGU file and then open the file in RealBand. However, Band-in-a-Box can't open a RealBand SEQ file.

Even though you can move a project from Band-in-a-Box to RealBand, some settings don't follow. However which settings follow and which settings don't is not documented so you have to learn by experience what settings transfers from Band-in-a-Box to RealBand and which do not.

I'm not sure why song files are called projects instead of song files but it is a common practice for every music program I know. Even hardware digital recorders store settings like tempo, key signature and audio files in project folders.

Hi Bob and Jim,

apologise that I have not seen my posts for a while. Thanks for your answers and comments. I will see how I will start my next "project".

Time to experience will be available. I will retire and so I get it...

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
