It should just run standalone, any problems just install AutoHotKey
you can also right click > Properties > Compatibility > Run As Admin

Use the Bass, Drum, Piano.. buttons to set the instrument/s to play over a Rest, Shot or Hold.
Use the < > to move or use the keyboard arrows.
Use - for a comma between chords.
Use / for slash chords.
Use the Tabs to select your key and scale.

EDIT: Fixed m6 m7 Ma7, added View Mode button.

EDIT: Update,
Added Set existing Chord to Push 1/8 or 1/16
Added View Mode Normal/Compact
Added DAW Plug-in Mode (small)

EDIT: Update
Added Remove Push Shot Hold or Rest from Chord
Added GUI Color Picker
Added Move BB Window with cursor keys or mouse


Exe and script
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mifqr8ibtnk6f4h/Biab%20Chord%20Picker%20beta%201.f.zip?dl=1

Script only
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qluu9iv9plk3ndk/Biab%20Chord%20Picker%20beta%201.f.ahk?dl=1
To run the script only just install AutoHotKey then double click on the Biab Chord Picker beta 1.0 script.ahk and it will run without having to use the exe.
If you open the Picker beta 1.0 script.ahk by dragging into Notepad you will see it is just simple text:





This is the easiest way, install AutoHotKey > Double click the BB Chord.ahk.
You can right click to Edit or Compile to an BB Chord.exe




Creating your own GUI:

I included the script, to edit it use SciTE4AutoHotKey or Notepad.
To create a GUI use SmartGUI then open in SciTE4AutoHotKey to add the the hotkeys.

So for each GUI Button you create e.g 13b5#9 put the code at the bottom,

this will send it to the Biab window, { } are used to send some special characters.

Code:
Gui, Add, Button, x372 y430 w90 h20 , 13b5#9

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Button13b5#9:
winactivate,ahk_class TBandWindow
Send  13b5{#}9
Return


You can use the GUI to do any Biab function by adding a button to send the shortcut keys or keystrokes to access the menus by sending down right and enter, see below.
If you have AutoHotKey installed just right click the script.ahk > Compile, this will create the GUI.exe
Use WindowSpy.ahk in the AutoHotKey Installation folder to get the window name to send the keys to an application, like ahk_class RealBand

So to create a MultiRiff Button for RealBand:
Code:
Gui, Add, Button, x10 y30 w60 h20 , MultiRiff

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ButtonMultiRiff:
WinActivate, ahk_class RealBand
Sleep, 500
Send, !{G 1}
Sleep, 100
Send, {Down 8}
Sleep, 100
Send, {Enter 1}
Return 


The Sleep is just a short pause, so it sends !=Alt + G 1 times
then goes Down the Generate menu 8 times then Enter to select MultiRiff.

So anything can be done with just one click of a button rather than having to navigate all through menus.

Using Combination Keys:
http://xahlee.info/mswin/autohotkey_key_notations.html

SmartGUI is simple to use, just drag in the button or any other components, save to file or clipboard, paste or open in SciTE4AutoHotKey or Notepad and add the keystroke send for each button.

Add this to the end to completely close the GUI so it's not running in the tray:
Code:
GuiClose:
GuiEscape:
ExitApp

To make the window always on top use:

Code:
Gui, 1: +AlwaysOnTop

in the GUI section.

or add a checkbox

Code:
Gui, Add, CheckBox, x730 y130 gUpdate vCheck, Always on Top

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

; Generated using SmartGUI Creator 4.0
OnMessage(0x115, "OnScroll") ; WM_VSCROLL
OnMessage(0x114, "OnScroll") ; WM_HSCROLL
Gui,  +Resize +0x300000  ; WS_VSCROLL | WS_HSCROLL	;+Resize (allows resize of windows)
Gui, Show, x277 y206 h682 w880, Biab Chord Picker Window, 

return


Update:
    Gui, Submit, NoHide
    If Check = 1
    {
        Gui, +AlwaysOnTop
    }
    else
    {
        Gui, -AlwaysOnTop
    }

Return

For earlier versions of Biab the only thing that needed changing was when you Edit the Chord in 2011 the chord is already highlighted but in 2018 it's not so i just took the highlight line out of the script.

For Earlier Biab versions ONLY:

Update 2.1f beta
Transpose Selection
Edit/Transpose Beat
All Biab versions in 1
32/64bit installer
settings.ini to easily add/modify your Custom User Actions

Biab Chord Picker Tool 2.1f beta 32/64bit installer
Biab Chord Picker Tool (x64)(x86) beta 2.1f setup.exe

Biab Chord Picker Tool 2.1f beta script only
Biab Chord Picker beta 2.1f.ahk.zip

The 2009-earlier should work on all versions as it uses the Chord Options dialog to edit the chords.
In the 2017 & 2018 version the set to Bass Drums Piano Guitar Strings shortcuts were left out, this prevents the Chord Picker Tool from working correctly using 2009 mode in 2017 & 2018, however PG should have a fix out soon for both 2017 & 2018 to add the shortcuts back.

When you start the new version for the first time you will be asked to set the version in the bottom left, you can then change versions at anytime to try what suites you best.

After the version is set you can then also edit the settings.ini located in the install folder.
This will let you easily add/modify the Custom User Actions keys in the User tab.
Here's an example of adding an Unfold action to CA11 (Custom Actions 1 button 1) it's a simple matter of filling in name=*** and funct=*** of the buttons you need.
Alt+E (Edit menu) Down 10 Right Down 5 and Enter
!E,{Down 10},{Right},{Down 5},{Enter}
** Save a copy of your settings.ini !!!
See Biab Chord Picker ReadMe.txt in the install folder for more details.

The ERROR are the blank actions not set yet.

If you just click the buttons you will see what they do, it is pretty self explaining.
If you read back through the posts you will see how it all works.
If you can't work it out I will try and make a tutorial or video for it.

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Enhance Your Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows Installation

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

This free update also includes the most recent build of our DAW Plugin (3.9.12).

Learn more about this free update and download it today.

Ordering Your Band-in-a-Box® is Easy!

When you order any PG Music products directly from www.pgmusic.com (or www.bandinabox.com) you'll receive immediate links to start downloading your order! Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

New Update for RealBand 2021 Available!

Do you use RealBand (included in all Band-in-a-Box® for Windows purchases)? Download the latest free update, which resolves a small viewing issue for Windows 11 users.

When you download the latest update for RealBand 2021, it will add all the updates we've made this year. See the full list here.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
