hallo liebe User,
ist es in BIAB möglich, eine Melodie z.B. im 5/4 Takt zu schreiben, ohne das die störenden Violinschlüssel nach dem 3 Viertel auftauchen?

Danke für die Info

Hallo Fred.
Leider ist es mit Band in a Box nicht möglich, z.B. 5/4 Takte anders einzugeben als einen 3/4 und einen 2/4 Takt hintereinander. Das gilt auch für andere krummzahlige Takte. Diese werden immer aus Kombinationen von 1/4- bis 4/4-Takten aufgebaut und angezeigt.
Es ist ein schon lang geäußerter Wunsch, das auch mit korrekter Notation zu ermöglichen.
Es werden also die Taktangaben bei jedem Taktwechsel angezeigt, allerdings nicht die Schlüssel. Ist das tatsächlich bei dir so, dass auch der Schlüssel immer neu auftaucht?

Danke für deine Info, man kann nur hoffen, daß das Problem behoben wird

Meine Deutsche sprache ist nicht so gut, aber sie reden von etwas das ich ebenso erfahrte.

Biab kann genau notieren was gespiellt werd (midi input z.b.). Die wiedergabe is gut aber es ist nicht möglich um zu quantizen, Biab kann kein 5/4 erkennen.

Also, ich mache ein Styl in 5/4 in ein Midi programm und ich schränke die midi so das es in einen 4/4 passt. Die erste beat is die erste Beat von ein 5/4.

Nun kan ich in 5/4 spielen in Biab. Nicht einfach, aber...

Auf mein website können sie hören wie ich das versuche. Sie können beispiele hören hier:
https://www.jazzstylezz.com/shop (Select odd meter)
Schwer zu lesen (melodie, z.b.) aber wenn du denkt in 5/4 klingt es genau 5/4.

Hello Dzjang.
I have now heard for the first time about your styles, which I have looked at right away on your website. Very good work, I will surely buy one or the other style and try it out.
Is it possible to buy all styles as a bundle for a special price?
Especially the bass lines are sounding very inspiring - what do you think about developing Soloists-Styles für Double Bass?

Ich habe zum ersten Mal von deinen Styles gehört, die ich mir gleich mal auf Deiner Webseite angesehen habe. Sehr gute Arbeit, ich werde sicher mal den einen oder anderen Style kaufen und ausprobieren. Kann man auch alle Styles als günstiges Paket kaufen? Ich bin neugierig, ob du nicht auch Kontrabass-Soloisten-Styles entwickeln möchtest, weil Band in a Box da nur wenig im Angebot hat?

Cool, thx.

Yes, there are no bass soloists, which is really too bad.
I especially dig Christian McBride, Rueben Rogers, Dave Holland and -not cool, maybe, but still- Gary Peacock.

For the moment habe ich keine ahnung how those soloists are put together.

I will look into it.

I’m working towards bundles of 10 styles. But it will take me some time (weeks, maybe). I thought:

Ecm bundle
Bread and Butter Bundle (modern versions of styles ranging from ballad to fast bop and some latin and 3/4)
Odd meters bundle (5/4 to 13/8)
Ballad bundle
Modern Bossa bundle
Medium tempo bundle (mix of modern even and swing styles)
Modal bundle
Fast bop bundle

Hope to get it ready and running by end of october

Thx a lot

Hallo Dzjang,
In welcher Sprache schreibt man dich denn am besten an, du bist ja hier in deutschen Forum? Where are you located, just to choose the right language, is it Belgium?
And yes, Reuben Rogers is a fantastic soloist, also Brian Bromberg.

Thank you for your info, I like your 5/4 style, but my problem is:
I want to write notes in 5/4-time in the score editor. BIAB makes a 3/4 and 2/4 time signature every beat alternating. The musical notation becomes illegible.
Maybe you can write to the developer, so that this problem is finally resolved.
Thx a lot

Hallo Fred,
das Problem ist leider ungefähr so alt, wie Band in a Box selbst und bereits häufig als Wunsch an die Entwickler formuliert worden. Dazu sind aber wohl große Umbauten in der Programmstruktur notwendig – auch um die Auf- und Abwärtskompatibilität zu wahren, die ja eine der großen Stärken von BiaB ist. Du kannst mit der aktuellen Programmversion auch 20 Jahre alte Songdateien öffnen und genauso mit älteren Programmversionen aktuelle Songfiles.
PG Music verweist stets darauf, dass BiaB kein Notensatzprogramm ersetzt. Aber du hast recht, es wäre großartig, würde das mal ordentlich funktionieren.

Hey Brille and Fred,

Quote:
I understand and read German, but I can not write it. It’s been more than thirty years since I left high school and had German for 2 years, 2 hours per week. I managed to forget all about the writing, but can still enjoy reading and listening to German language,
I used to dig a live jazz program where a funny bearded bass player addressed us with: Guten Abend Liebe Jazz-Freunde, smile

The problem with odd meters and Biab not being able to write them is not the only problem with Biab.

Biab is tone-deaf! Read my post https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=77508&Number=546844#Post546844

Sad, isn’t it?

Hallo Dzjang.
Ich möchte mal eine Lanze für PG-Music brechen:
Peter Gannon hat vor über 20 Jahren begonnen, ein Programm zu entwickeln, das es ihm erlaubt, sich zum Üben eine Begleitband aus dem Computer zu zaubern. Es gab damals kein Programm, dass so etwas möglich machte.
Hinter PGMusic steckt kein großes Softwareunternehmen. Die technische Entwicklung und Weiterentwicklung liegt in den Händen einiger weniger Programmierer (und Musiker).
Band in a Box ist ein Nischenprogramm - anders als z.B. Word oder Photoshop, deren große Verbreitung auch große Programmierteams mit dem entsprechenden Overhead erlauben.
Im Forum werden häufiger große Erwartungen an die Software und deren Funktionen formuliert – teilweise auch in etwas ungehaltenem Ton - "Warum kann das Programm dies nicht? Warum macht es jenes nicht so, wie ich es möchte?".
Du kannst sicher sein, das PG Music-Team liest alle Hinweise und Vorschläge und wenn möglich, werden Fehler behoben oder Funktionen ergänzt – mitunter deutlich schneller, als bei "großen" Softwarehäusern.
Aber nicht alles lässt sich kurzfristig umsetzen - das liegt auch in der Entwicklungsgeschichte des Programmes begründet und der notwendigen und zweckmäßigen Rückwärtskompatibilität zu alten Songdateien.
Insgesamt hat das Programm trotz aller Einschränkungen für mich als Musiker einen sehr großen Nutzwert und ich möchte es nicht missen.
Und es hat auch eine sehr aktive Community - die, wie du es ja mit deinen (übrigens sehr empfehlenswerten!) Style-Dateien auch tust – rege die Weiterentwicklung des Programms unterstützen.
Also: Du hast Recht, auch ich habe eine lange Wunschliste, was das Programm noch so alles können soll. Aber ich bin trotzallem auch sehr zufrieden mit dem, was es bereits kann.

Ja auch ich finde dass es ein Außergewöhnliches Programm ist, das mit 5/4 sowie mit 3/4 tel oder 7/(4)8 tel habe ich via tolischer Aufteilung gelöst da die Band ja keine Liedstime spielt für mich als Percussionist eher logischer Aufbau. Da ich eher Playbacks für Solisten oder Sänger zum üben erstelle, Noten erstelle ich mit Toccata z.B. Jedoch wird es via midi datei 0/1 dann gesendet.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
