BiabPluginChords-StudioOne.zip
Place the BiabPluginChords.package in the Scripts folder in the Studio One install directory,

restart Studio One

in the Biab plugin make sure you have unfolded the song sheet with the down arrow at the bottom
right of the plugin window, now save it to SGU and reopen the SGU

insert a chord at bar 3 and make the length as longest chord change, say 4 bars and select it
in Studio One Event menu select > Biab Plugin Chords
browse to the Biab folder
select Song.txt

if you are not using a 2 bar count-in select the first chord then ctrl+A
and drag to bar 1

This is working for a constant tempo at 4/4 or 3/4 at the moment
will look into getting it to work with tempo and time signature changes.
To get it to work now create a new song tab,
insert a chord as above and then Event menu > Biab Plugin Chords,
Song menu > Import Song Data
Open the tempo mapped project and check Tempo & Time Signatures
now select all chords ctrl+A right click copy
go to the Tempo mapped Song tab and paste the chords into the chord track
You should now have the Biab chords fitted to the tempo map.
When the plugin has an ACID option added you can drag the tracks into S1 and they will fit to that tempo map, until then just right click the track and set the tempo to that of the Biab Plugin.


** the current plugin 1.14.2.0 is not playing most 3/4 styles back in sync in the chord sheet, it's counting 4 beats. Should be fixed in the next release



Select the chords, right click and set the song section color:

How would one do this on a Mac? There is no install directory as there is on a Windows PC.

Update thanks to RayL for finding the issue:
Fixed: Not detecting capitals in chord name CMaj7 > Cmaj7
S1 doesn't recognize uppercase in the chords unlike BB, you may want to suggest that to PreSonus.
Try this and see how it goes.
BiabPluginChords-StudioOne.zip

Here's one for chords to markers, so any midi you export will have the chords in it as makers (something I asked PG to do since 1879 smile )

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
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: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
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.
