I asked the ChatAI about how to set up a 2-beat pickup measure. It said to set the first bar as 2/4, which I did. Next bar is back to 4/4. However, I want A13 on beat 1, and A13(b9) on beat 2. It won't do it. Just does A13 on both beats. What to do?

Can you just use "Edit Riff" in the Tracks view and move some notes to bar 0 then generate up a new section from where you moved it from.
You should be able to select bar 0 then do a partial regen but it's not working yet.

BiaB is weird when it comes to things like this. It will show you 2/4 but with 4 chord spaces! The trick is only the first two beats are active. Thus you must input you chords like this: A13,A13b9.

I hope this helps and good luck.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

I noticed that. And, yes, I did enter it like that, but regenerating still didn't add the altered tensions in the chord. Just vanilla A13 chord.

I C. Can I do that with all of the tracks at once? The whole band is supposed to kick those chords.

The chances of the RealTracks having an A13 chord let alone an A13b9 is slim same if you used A. A13..,A13b9.. you would not have that in the Shots n Holds.
If you use midi you can get what you want.

Entering A13b9 later in the tune works out fine. However, entering it as a one beat held chord goes back to A13 with no b9. I guess I'm going to try Editable Real Tracks to see if I can just add in the missing note.

I used Editable Real Tracks and step entered the chord voicing that I want on the instruments that I want. Now the problem is that the two held chords, A13 and A13b9, are quite a bit louder than the rest of the track. I fixed that for the intro, which is a 2/4 bar, by changing the volume for all instruments in Bar Settings to -20.

However, this chord hit happens later in the tune, which is in 4/4. The A13... A13b9 hits come on beats 3 and 4 within the song(this happens a few times. How do I change the volume on all of the instruments at just beats 3 and 4?

You have a Vol adjust for the Playable RealTrack notes and you have the Velocity at the bottom that you can use Shift and drag all down. You also have Master Vol Automation in Audio Edit Master.

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."
