Although I use BIAB quite a bit, my use has been limited to songs that are already in the data base,,,and some occasional editing. But if I wanted to enter a song, 4 bars of intro, 16 bars of song,,,,,how would I


1. Loop from 20th bar back to 5th bar for "X" number of times?

2. End it with a tag of some kind?

(step by step PLEASE)

Sonny, first you have to specify which bar begins the chorus. which bar ends the chorus,specify the number of choruses then you can set up the tag or ending. refer to my screenshot.

That procedure works okay if you just want intro, verse, chorus, etc.... but if you've got singing with turnarounds or breaks, you have to do it differently. Just highlight the verse and chorus and do copy/paste as many times as you need, then do edit/add bars to do the turnarounds, etc... It sounds complicated, but it's really easy once you do it. Have fun. Smile
