Hello,

I have my melody notation entered in the treble clef but I would like it displayed in the bass clef for trombone instead.

I can transpose it down by one octave and that works but it displays the notation still in the treble clef with heaps of auxiliary staff lines. The bass clef remains empty.

I would like it showing in the bass clef instead. Is there any way to do this?

You can change the split point in the Notation Options. Would this work for you?

I have hundreds of files which I entered in Treble Clef but, being a trombone player, I have to print out for myself in Bass Clef. I have never experienced the problem you mention. I should point out that my split is C4 as Video Track recommends. It changes automatically to G6 when I select the "Melody on Bass Clef -12. You do have to change the "Chord Vertical Position" (from 5 to 10) and "Lyric Position" (from -5 to 35) if you are wanting to show chords and lyrics. And you also have to decide if you wish to change the split point for the Soloist track.

Oh, Hi Berntd, I did not notice it was you when I started to reply to your post. What a strange coincidence we should meet so soon on this forum. You are learning the tricks quickly and you are getting advice from an excellent source.

Ok, weekend and I have time to try this.

I still cannot get it right.

When I go to Melody->Edit Melody Track->Transpose Melody only

I select down one octave.

That results in everything still in the treble clef as already mentioned.
And yes, the split is set to C4.

What am I doing wrong?

Regards
Bernt

If you have a look under the "Clef Split At" C4, you'll see that the program is set to show notes of up to 5 ledger lines. This would seem to be what's happening.

With this in mind, a couple of things to try are...

1. set the split to C5 (the octave above C4)

2. set the max ledger lines to 0

I haven't tried it but I suspect that one of those two settings will do the job for you.

Regards,
Noel

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!

#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!

Click here to take a peak!

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.
