I noticed that one of the words/lyrics entered into a song by note-based method is wrong and when I edit it, it always reverts to the original, wrong word. I sure could use some help.

Natcheztoo,

I use the notation editor regularly. If you select the bar for the word you want to change and then press CTRL + L, the lyric editor will open for a note in that bar. Using tab (forward) of SHFT + tab (backward) will allow you to navigate to the note you want. After you have changed the text, make sure you press enter or tab (to save) before pressing CTRL + L to exit the lyric editor.

Hope this helps,
--Noel

Noel,

Thank you for your suggestion.

With great trepidation I sallied forth to try your method. It did not work. It just changed back. BTW, when I hit the enter key to save the change, it did and moved forward t the next note and word. There was no word there and it was when I entered the word that the previous entry changed back. Thoughts?

I will try it a couple more times, but, "Insanity Is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over Again and Expecting Different Results." Maybe. I'll report back.

BIAB is a huge program and I am awed by what the coders have created. What I know is like five grains of sand on the beach in Panama City, Florida. Everything is so difficult, especially for me.

Hi again.

That is most strange. I've been writing lyrics into my BIAB songs since 2008 and I've never had this happen.

First, a good principle to keep in mind is that when BIAB starts doing unusual things, it is worth trying "Return to factory settings" using the "MOST" option. That often fixes a problem.

With this lyric issue, this is also worth trying...

(1) click on the "#" symbol (#1 on the top image) and then click on "Edit Lyrics" (#2)

(2) in the lyric editor, navigate to the lyric you want to delete and then delete it.

The format of the editor is "bar number : beat number : part of a beat"

Regarding the "part of a beat" (also called 'ticks'), and 1/8th note = 60, 1/16th note = 30

This should do the job for you.

Noel,

I am going to try all the things you recommended. I'll be back to you on that.

I wanted to take some screen shots to send, like you did above, but I could not insert it into the message. What did you do to get yours into the message?

Thanks,

Natcheztoo

Noel,

I forgot to tell you that I did the "return to factory settings" just three days ago and that corrected a couple ailments that I had. At the time, I had not experienced the problem we are discussing.

Test to see if a picture is inserted. I do not see it here, but I dragged and dropped as instructed. I'll give it a shot.

Yes, I should have mentioned that you won't see it while editing even in preview mode. It becomes available after you actually post it.
Anyway, the attachment shows up fine.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
