I'm finding a small problem here, I can't set the program to work with any specific BIAB version, as you can see here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qqGHbqnUvo9byJe8RCQz4xOIOBYRrgXi/view?usp=sharing

Also, Set Chord Rest/Shots/Hold/Push...buttons are not working on my system, after clicking those buttons nothing happens. I don't know if that could be a related problem.

In the install folder C:\Program Files\Biab Chord Picker Tool
settings.ini

Mr Pipeline ,

could you please help Mr. Magoo by perhaps providing an actual download of the Mac version of the Free Biab & BiabVST Chord Picker Tool (look at the bottom of the page for the latest version.) Poor Mr. Magoo looked and looked but no luck . On the other hand if it is too much trouble then he is OK with that .

( yes, that what happens as you get older ) blush

Thanks .

Have a look here https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=475833#Post475833 try the Java GUI and see if it works for you on the Mac as the tool can be created with java as there is no AutoHotKey app for Mac that will also create a GUI, unless you know of one ?
You can also request PG create a similar tool for users on both Win & Mac.

Biab Plugin Chord Picker Tool Generic v1.1 for Most DAWs
This should work with most DAWs.

The 2 DAWs I found so far that don't send the keystrokes to the Biab Plugin window are BandLab and Cubase, so to fix this issue use
PluginFlipFlop if you already have JBridge.
Just load PluginFlipFlop (instrument of FX) then load the Biab Plugin (instrument of FX) into it.
Using PluginFlipFlop in Cubase will keep the VST window on top always.
Let me know what works and what don't.
(the transport buttons up the top are not working)
(the ^ ^^ Pushes still need implementing in the Plugin)
EDIT: Updated 1.1 > 1.2

Yea same deal as BandLab and Cubase.
Load PluginFlipFlop (FX or instrument) then load BBvst (FX or instrument) into it.
If the BiabVst don't stay on top use an Always On Top app like the one in the link Always On Top 1.3
Joao from JBridge is going to make it stay on top.

In Windows 10 if you are running Band in a Box as Administrator you will need to run the Chord Picker Tool also as Administrator to have access.

To run script only .ahk install https://www.autohotkey.com/ and set AutoHotKey.exe to Run As Administrator

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
