Hi

I'm using BIAB 2019.

If I go into the Notation screen, then Editable notation and insert a note on the first beat of bar one it lasts for 1 bar and 3 beats (4/4 time), no problem so far. If I then add a note in bar 2 at beat 2, I get a rest at beat 1 of bar 2 - why ?

Why does a rest appear in between the two notes, what am I missing ?

Glen

I'm not at my computer, but there is a default length of a note that is, I think, 90%. So when you enter a new note at bar 2, beat 2, it knows that the first note has to end before the second note starts, and it leaves a space before the second note.

You can change the default length.

Hi Glen,

I just tried the above in both BIAB 32bit and BIAB 64-bit and the note tied correctly from beat 1 (bar 1) to beat 1 (bar 2) -- in other words, I did not get the rest you mention.

Do you have the latest build installed? We are presently up to #617. It can be downloaded and manually installed from the following link.

https://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm

Also, are you entering the notes on the Melody track?

Regards,
Noel

Found it.

Go to Help, Notation Window - Options More.

It's 80% as the default.

EDIT: However, I also got what Noel got - no rest in the Editable Notation Mode. If I switch back to the Regular Notation Mode, I see the rest at beat one in measure two. I think that's explained by what I mentioned before. And, of course, you can change the length of the note manually in a few ways so you don't see the rest.

Matt, Noel

Many thanks for your help.

I think Matt found the answer with the note length defaulting to 80%. If I entered the notes as in my original post, then selected the Staff Roll Notation, the first note length (blue line) only fractionally went past the Bar 2 line. Changing the default note length to 90% has solved the problem and the rest no longer appears.

Thanks again guys, much appreciated.

Glen

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).

#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!

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® 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.
