Hi folks,
I am writing out a piece which is 3/4, but has two measures in 4/4.

i am right clicking on the appropriate measure, going to bar settings, changing the 0 to 4, and pressing ok.
The measure gets underlined in red, and when i check it, the setting for 4 beats in a measure is still there, but when i play the song, it just continues to play all measures in 3/4.
someone, please tell me what i am doing wrong!!!
thank you...
frustrated...

Did you regenerate the song after changing the measures? If not then nothing would change.


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

I'm presuming that you are using a 3/4 style.
In BiaB you cannot add a beat to a bar, you can only take one away.

There are two possible solutions:
1:
Add a bar at the point you want make the change to 4/4, then either make this bar 1 beat long (you will have a bar of 3/4 and a bar of 1/4), or make this and the preceding bar 2 beats long each. Both ways will give you a total of 4 beats over the two bars.

2:
Use a 4/4 style and change to 3 beats per bar at the start using F5 bar settings and then change it to 4/4 at the required bar.

The general rule VideoTrack is solving is that if BIAB uses both 3/4 and 4/4 in the same song, you must start in 4/4.

Exactly. And BTW, if you choose option 2, watch out for the count-in. You probably won't like it.

Another way to achieve your requirement is to use a 3/4 style for the song and use bar settings (F5) at the required bar and change to a 4/4 style, then back to a 3/4 style at the next required bar. However, if the styles don't match well (instrumentation etc) it can often sound as though you changed bands for those bars.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
