The "Bonus" styles come with the "Bonus Paks" which are offered for sale with each new version of BIAB. If you haven't purchased any "Bonus Paks" you most likely won't have any of the "Bonus" styls.

Notating a G7(13(9) chord [was: Re: [Band-In-A-Box] Download/upload]

[snip]
You should always change the subject line (I've done it for you) if you are changing the topic of the conversation.

How you would notate it depends on what you mean with the two extensions in parentheses -- are they "add" intervals?

If so, you would notate it G9add13 -- the 9 isn't an "add" interval since it's the next third above the 7th, so you're really asking about a 9th chord with an added 13th.

If you aren't asking about "add" intervals, then you could just enter G13.

Ok thanks.

Ron1955's purpose in the spreadsheet is to help people see which
instruments are in which styles.  It's really for people who want to
delve pretty deeply into all the real styles.

For many of us, which instruments are in which styles are not very
important.  Many BIAB users simply try a style based on the descriptions
and the parameters listed in the StylePicker window and if we like the
style, we keep it in that song, and if now we continue trying styles
until we find a style which suits our taste for a particular song.

You might simply want to spend some time with the printout of the
spreadsheet and scroll down through the styles you do have showing in
the StylePicker window (my advice always is to do the slow rebuild after
you've installed a new version of BIAB or any of the updates, in order
to be sure BIAB has found all the styles on your computer).  Highlight
the styles you do have and skip the styles you don't have, then you can
edit your downloaded copy of the spreadsheet to move all the styles you
do have to the top of the spreadsheet.  That way all the information
which is important to you will be easy to find.

Re: Multitracker, the App

wolfgang.flandorfer@...
 

I use for a similar scenario the free App Bandlab (available for IOS , Android and Windows (bandlab.com in the browser)) which looks at the first look like not made for the more conservative BIAB user with a lot of hiphop, etc music.
But I use the very nice DAW function in private mode. It is easy to drag and drop Biab tracks (I use mp3) into the Bandlab tracks in the browser and to mix the tracks and add many different effects like reverb, etc. At the end of the process exists a very nice mastering functionality to produce the final MP3 file. Bandlab stores all tracks its own cloud, but its easy to download the tracks to my own discs if needed. The advantage for me is that I can freely change from the smartphone/tablet APP to the Windows functionality which runs very nice in the browser on a big screen (I use chrome from Google). The functionality of the smartphone and desktop (browser) applications is very similar. A further advantage is that I can share songs with a closed group of people (they call it a band) where everybody can contribute to the song. Every change of something creates a new release - so nothing can be lost.

I am since many years BIAB user (74 years old...) and found this Bandlab (nor really made for old guys) a very nice extension to my BIAB possibilities. It is much more easy to use than Realband and it runs on all my devices.
