We had a customer ask if you can anticipate an eighth or a sixteenth note on any beat. Yes, you can! Tobin made up a quick video to show how this is done, so we thought we would share it here as well.

I for one wasn't familiar with the use of your "anticipate" terminology, until the video made me realise you were talking about what the program's own vocabulary always refers to as "pushes".

So I just thought I'd put that out there for the sake of clarity (hopefully).

We had a follow-up question in the youtube comments of that first one, so I made a new video showing how to also include rests:



And yes, Icelander, usually the terminology in Band-in-a-Box is "push" instead of "anticipate", I just used "anticipate" because that's how the original question was posed. But in the new video I made sure to indicate that both terms are interchangeable.

Fair enuff, I just figured I wouldn't be the only one so I decided to squeeze that in there.

There was an additional question about including beats 3 & 4 into the mix, so I made a 3rd part to this collection of videos:

Is there a way to Push the first beat of every bar or a selection of bars without having to manually edit every single bar? Or would that be a Customized Style?

Hi olemon,

There is no current way to do that, however that's an excellent suggestion, and I'll suggest that as a new feature.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
