Firstly, welcome to the neighborhood.

Writing triplet notation can be tricky in BiaB. I have been successful with other beat resolutions many times, but quarter-note triplets, not so. I don't really know the correct formula.

Others may be able to offer some better ideas.

I do triplets by using the Editable Notation Mode and right-clicking on each note, then adjusting the start timing of each note.

There are a few considerations, including whether there is any offset for an instrument (for example, I set Vibes to play earlier). Also what resolution you select for your MIDI. The default is 120 per quarter note, and I rarely change it. You get used to the math quickly.

Matt, have you had any success with quarter note triplets using this method?

I just change the program to run in triplet mode {Notation>options>Triplet resolution} when I want he triplets, and turn it back to 16th when I have finished. The print out is crappy, but the notes are evenly spaced, so they sound OK. If the printed output is important, just pick a swing style for printing and back to the original style for playing.

There is a way to change individual notes to / from triplets, but I always found more cumbersome

I'm really sorry this one got away from me. Too much to do.

Yes, you can enter these using Editable Notation Mode.

First, I assume 'quarter note triplets' to mean three notes played in the time that two straight quarter notes would sound. Second, this assumes the default setting of 120 ticks per quarter note.

Enter three notes anywhere in the first two beats, then edit them as follows by right-clicking on each note:

First note: starts on Beat 1, Tick 0.
Second note: starts on Beat 1, Tick 80.
Third note: starts on Beat 2, Tick 40.

Adjust the duration of all three notes to be the same, such as 60 for a legato sound (60 out of the possible length of 80).

Continuing for another triplet over beats three and four:

First note: starts on Beat 3, Tick 0.
Second note: starts on Beat 3, Tick 80.
Third note: starts on Beat 4, Tick 40.

If you change BIAB to triplet resolution, these will appear on screen correctly.

Thanks for the update, appreciated.

I can see that the triplet resolution is the trick to get the display to present correctly.

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.

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!

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.
