I think your points are valid. Although there have been some phenomenal improvements to BIAB in those 20 years (closer to 30 for me), some things are virtually unchanged. MIDI and notation are among them.

Your perspective, returning to BIAB after a long absence, is very valuable. You should make some Wishlist posts as things occur to you.

Do check the Mac forum about your specific editing quirk. It doesn’t work that way in Windows. If it’s a bug in the Mac version, let us know so we can report it.

"(closer to 30 for me)" Ha! Version 3.0 is the first version I remember using, but I couldn't tell you when that came out. I'll check out the Mac forum. I just did a crossgrade to the latest Mac BIAB build after giving up on Windows some years ago.

I've actually been using BIAB for over twenty years now, on and off, and have just come back to it, partly because of not being able to play with others for the duration. I'm surprised how many things were awkward back then are still awkward now. The triplets thing, for one. The fact that it's *really* hard to step edit notes - maybe this is different on Windows, but on the mac I can only edit every other note. It should be possible to select notes and edit/delete them from the notation window other than selecting Rest and pasting it over existing notes or having to resort to step editing...


You can delete notes by holding delete while clicking on the note. An easy and quick way to enter notation is to use the left and right cursor keys in editable notation mode to step back and forth and press the N key to enter a note, then up/down cursor to set the pitch. This is the same in the current versions for Windows and Mac.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
