I have my song (32 bars), pasted again for 64 (I couldn't figure how to make a 1st/2nd ending with different chords in each), set to 1x chorus, but on playback it repeats over and over (including the 2-bars click-in)

How can I set it to only play once?

And if there's any help on making 1st/2nd ending properly, I would love a link to a video

Thanks!
Dave

You have to unclick loops. I attached two pics as I don't know what GUI you are using.

I can't help with your ending problem as all of my songs are done unfolded. I found that is the best workflow for me.

My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

This video might give you the information you need on intros, bridges, and endings, in Band-in-a-Box songs:

The absolute best way to handle this is to UNFOLD the chorus. EDIT>SONG FORM> UNFOLD ( I believe that's the navigation )

This puts the song in a linear form and you can edit the bars to do whatever you want. It simply plays straight through from bar one to the end with no repeats. I believe you can use up to 255 bars but the average song is less than half that amount.

This is, by the way, the ONLY way I work on songs. No guessing which repeat you are in. You see plainly where you are and can jump in to any point in the song.

Many users unfold, but don't take that as an indication that this is the only way to work effectively with the program. If you need to print a score it may be several pages long if you unfold, but only one or two pages if you use repeats. I rarely (if ever) unfold.

So, knowing the different options that are available, experiment and use what works best for you and best for each song.

And ... Remember that you can work unfolded and then refold to print the shorter version.

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.
