Is it true that this is limited to major and minor triads? No 7ths and no upper extensions?

It picked up the 7th chords in my song.

I tried another song that has 9th chords and it missed them, flagged them as 7th chords.

Ok, that's a start. Thanks.

Can it distinguish major seventh from minor seventh? In a 9th chord, will it at least recognize whether it's a dominant seventh or a major seventh?

I use Chordify often, especially during low-attendance jams to verify chords shown by Ultimate Guitar. The UG lyrics are usually right, but their contributors' interpretations of the chords to songs often leave much to be desired! I've sent in recommendations for changes to both programs.
In Chordify, most useful chord types are available and usually correctly detected, except for augmenteds. That 1-3-#5 configuration is not on the list. Case in point: Guess Who's 'Laughing' - augmenteds used throughout, but not detected by Chordify.
At my low-attendance jams (often just two of us!) I play an arranger keyboard, and spend too much time searching the 1000-odd style options for a useable style to deliver an appropriate combo for the song we choose at random from the UG list. I wish the UG &/or Chordify presentations would at least suggest a starting point: rock, shuffle, 6-9 ballad, beguine, etc. etc. Chordify does present the BPM of the arrangement (usually from Youtube) it magically deconstructs in its pro edition, which is useful.
Any other users of these great apps?

Personally I use it for popular songs and it tends to measure up, some hearing correction and you already have the chords.
For more complex songs like jazz or bossa I consider it less effective, but in general it is a great advance for musicians.

Another program like the ones that have been discussed here is mychord

I am brand new here and not a great tech. I want to know if I can import songs from Chordify to Band in a box and how. Would sure save time typing!
A problem is Chordify will work on my iPad or android phone, but not on my AirMac.

Or is there another program that does this.
Thanks

YES.

So, I went to the site, saw a Luke Bryan song, and saw that Chordify Premium is $1.79 a month, a whopping $20 a year subscription.

Below are screenshots for the web freebie, and the BIAB file using the midi I received for, let's say, 5 cents.

It is very close to what is on Ultimate Guitar (both the web and the midi) and with a few tweaks I am sure it will be fine.

So let's see. I pay 17.95 a month for Netflix and never watch it because I am trying to decode songs. So, hmmmmm...do I spend $1.79 a month to let a robot do 95% of the work for me.

Or do I gripe and complain that they missed the Sus 4 add 11 MajMin9th augmented 5 chord???? (Ok, yes that was silly.)


Floyd, my answer:

Yes. Get it.

Also answers my other question on another thread.

Anyone doing current songs in BIAB using current styles?

Yes.

Me.

Now.

I have tried that ACW tool 8-10 times and it has never come CLOSE to recognizing the chords correctly. Once with something as simple as a 1-4-5 12 bar blues song.

I thought diminished chords were called demolished chords. Same thing, right?

One show I played with no conductor, the actors said, give us a chord. So I said, D Major and we played ta-da.

Then they did something else interesting and motioned for a chord, so I called E major. Ta-da. All good.

Then they really botched the next gag so I called for Eb Diminished. Ta-da…..

Big laugh.

The trick with the acw is to get the tempo map right 100% BEFORE attempting to get it to recognising chords.

Another trick to using the Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) is to manually set beat 1 of bar 1. Many songs have a lead in so the audio starts before bar 1. If the ACW starts its analysis at the lead in the rest of the analysis will never be correct.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
