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.

Now larger attachments are allowed I will upload the chord tools to the local PG storage so down the track they should still be here.
Just set your Win Explorer to show file extensions and remove the ".mp4"

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.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
