I found an arrangement that I thought might make sense for me doing in the DAW plugin to get an understanding of that workflow. But I'm not seeing the "Chord Settings" option (usually Alt-F5). Is that supported somehow? I see Bar settings, but not chord settings. That one is crucial for my work - holds, rests, etc.

Just type in your chords as you would in BiaB. The plugin now recognizes the same things.

Hi cwiggins999, as Rob mentioned you would need to type the chords into the chordsheet to work from the plugin. Here is a list of recognized chords: https://www.pgmusic.com/tutorial_chordlist.htm

If you prefer, you can also do your work in the main BIAB program, then open the song file from the plugin.

Thanks Simon. I was speaking specifically of the options on the "Chord Settings" dialog - like rests, holds, pushes. I haven't found a way to bring this up in the plugin. As someone pointed out, it is possible to enter the shorthand symbols directly, but I prefer the dialog since instruments/letters can change.

Hey CWig, good morning. I doubt the plugin will have all the dialog boxes for Biab it was meant for a lite version with the ability to open BiaB song file or type in chords. How I handle that is I printed out a chord cheat sheet with the character values for those type of chords.

I hope that helps

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.
