There have been times before, and I am at one again, that I need to snip and paste just a hi hat or just a kick from an exact spot to build a custom drum pattern. Those events are not always on a specific tick. When I position the scrolling transport line, I don't know where I am in a measure. Is there a way to toggle that on? If I could see that this is bar 1, beat 3, tick 55, that would help greatly in customizing these drum parts.



If I were to try and paste the bright yellow track to get JUST that tiny, almost subliminal event, how can I see position when I get to the paste function? If we were able to zoom in the beat markers of the measures down to at least 16th note resolution it would be easier. Is that doable?

In this case I am trying to move a kick drum and while I can move the kick drum, the hi hat behind it disappears. That tiny tick would be a hi hat that I need or the place where I cut and paste to will have a hole of silence in it.

Can you use the big or little clock ?
You have a Merge Paste option and you can set the from position.

It might be easier using the PG Drum kit "Rock Kit.sfz" in Sforzando VSTi and create up the drum track with the piano roll with copy & paste or modify a PG midi drum track.

You can also drag the C:\Program Files\PG Music Inc\Band-in-a-Box Sounds\Programs\Drums\Rock Kit.wav
into RealBand and copy & paste the hits.

Or if you want to add extra hits to a RealDrum add those hits with midi to the track below using Sforzando VSTi, you can use the metronome to add what hits where, then render the 2 tracks to a stereo wav.

It's also noted in the bottom left corner of the screen in Pipeline's screen shot.
His is showing real time (HH:MM:SS;mS) like you mentioned.

You can see the time mark/selection in a lot of different ways, depending on your setup/options.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
