Hi,

Q: How do I change the key signature but keep the note positions on the staff lines the same? I have some downloaded music and would like to transpose them for violin in a different key and also transpose the notes up or down independent of each other.

Right now if I change the key the notes move, its I do not what to happen.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Keri-Ann

I'm not entirely sure what you are trying to do, but look at Options, Preferences, Notation. You will see Transpose Options. If you make changes here, the music will continue to play - sound - in the same key, but the notation will change for a transposing instrument.

If its yet another exasperating case of a downloaded MIDI file that is in some key other than C yet the MIDIOT who created it did not set the keysig to C, it is easy to correct in BiaB.

First, figure out the real key that the piece is in.

Then, using the main Keysig dropdown under the Songtitle area, select that key.

BiaB will flash a window asking whether or not you want to change the notes. Since the notes are already right - but likely showing all sorts of weird accidentals because the MIDI file is still set to key of C, answer "No" to that prompt. Be sure to SAVE the song that way now so that you don't have to go through all this again.

What Mac said. Once the correct key shown on the main screen and notation match up, then you can change the key and the notes will also change if you pick that option. Although I play trumpet (Bb), I always make it a concert key. If you are worried, save each file with a different name as you go through the process. I use this feature all the time just to get the notation in the right key for my trumpet charts. After printing I just hit "Undo" and then hit Save.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
