My copy arrived today and I have just started to play with it. It took about 5 minutes to setup a 2/5/1 chord progression that I could easily loop and practise improviations to. It took me another two minutes to change the style from easy jazz to trad jazz.Who uses this (particularly on a Mac) and what do you think? Should I buy it?
As someone that has used it for a while you may be able to answer a question for me.I have used the Windows version for about 5 or 6 years. I use it to create backing tracks for practice and for solo performance. The real drums are a great improvement. There is an option to create a leadsheet from a recording, but I have never got that to work too well. Not that I have spent that long trying.
You can enter chords in any key and tranpose the song to any other key that you choose. Of course, you can also tranpose any song in BIAB by using PREFERENCES/NOTATION/Transpose Options.As someone that has used it for a while you may be able to answer a question for me.
I know that I can set the display to show the Eb transposed chords. Is there a way that I can enter the chords in Eb tranposed mode or do I always have to enter the concert pitch chords?
I have yes - I recently bought BIAB 2009 that came with Real Band.Have you seen the Real Band 2009 software from PG Music? It uses real pre-recorded audio instead of MIDI. It is designed to work in conjunction with BIAB.
Have Fun as they say.
