I have a rather old Ipad that I'd like to put my sheet music onto.
I scan can it from my laptop and then email it to the Ipad. A little clunky and I'm not able to manipulate it easily.
Can anyone suggest a better way? (Please be kind, cos I'm not very tech savvy)


Cheers,
Keith

I use the For Score app, and an iRig Bluetooth foot pedal for page turns. The For Score app shows as an option for downloading a PDF right into the app instead of, say, emailing it. In For Score, you can change the order and/or add it to one of your set lists. With my Apple Pencil I make notes all the time.

Although I use the iPad almost exclusively now, with a case that has a magnetic lid that sticks to my music stand, I also keep printed music handy.

And, I could not use an iPad until I bought a 12.9” one. The 10 something was just not big enough.

Ironically at tonight’s rehearsal, I had an interesting problem. Two others came with iPads and iRig Bluetooth pedals. I looked up that there can be a confusion which iPad they can connect to. I’ve ordered an Airturn Duo 500, which locks only to one device. I’ll report next week how it goes.

As I've gotten older, I have difficulty seing the music in fake books, due to the printed size. With a product like For Score, or other products for an iPad, is it possible to Scan or take a photo of a song in a fake book and expand the size so it can be more easily read from the iPad while playing keyboards?

Since I only need the chords and a melody line, it would not require a full musical "Score" or copy of actual sheet music.

Any advice converting fake book music onto a larger image on an iPad?

I've even thought about a possibility of using a video camera rig to show a fake page onto a 27" monitor, since this need is only for my home hobby need.

I've also been trying the BIAB approach keying in the chords and a melody line, or purchasing the Notes Norton fakebooks, and using the fakebook sheet view, but I don't really need the accompaniment, just want to play it solo, so seems like quite a bit of effort.

Closing the loop, the AirTurn Duo worked very well. It has a mode that prevents any other Bluetooth connection.

I have used PDFs from all kinds of sources, including taking a picture on my phone. I use an app called Photos to PDF, but I think there are many such apps. To your question, although I haven't expressly tested this, I'm pretty sure that ForScore just takes whatever it has and sizes it to fit the iPad screen size. I base that on the fact I've never seen it NOT do that.

Can you explain what you call 'converting it into a larger image on the iPad'? Are you by any chance talking about one of those mini fakebooks, four inches in height?

Matt... All my fakebooks are the full-size ones about 10"x12". Was figuringing since most fake book pages have two songs per page, I was looking to make the halk-page song show to fill the available screen. The For Score app appears to do that, both from your comment and in looking at the User manual.

So I'm going to go ahead and give it a try. Thanks for the tip!!

You're welcome. I didn't understand your question because none of my jazz fakebooks are two songs per page, except a few huge collections like one of every popular Christmas song where the size of the printing is very small. In other words, I would never use one of those on the bandstand; I would first have to photocopy and enlarge it. Perhaps that's what you are describing.

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!

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."
