Great App!


I downloaded this app once before and couldn't figure it out once the server screen came up. Then I read all the terrible reviews and decided it wasn't worth the trouble. But then I decided to spend some time figuring it out and found that this app is really cool. I have a MacBook Air, so I can't actually create or modify songs on the app, but that's fine. Here's what I can do. I use Mac BIAB to create a BIAB file (MGU or SGU) and render it as an audio file. Then I save/export BOTH files to Dropbox. Thought the IOS app, I download BOTH files (that's the trick - your need both files!). Now when I select OPEN on the IOS app, the name of the song appears, and I can open it. It sounds great (since it's an MP4) and since the MGU/SGU is open too, the chord changes appear on the screen like they do in the desktop BIAB. So I can now use my iPhone or iPad with my piano and play through songs without having to set up a laptop. There needs to be specific Mac instructions so more people can figure this out. My only complaint about PGmusic is that they are so Windows-centric. But the new BIAB 2016 is fantastic for Mac so I can't complain too much.

Terrific! But needs an update.


I've been using BIAB for years to create backing tracks. I do that on my desktop version, then transfer them to my iPad version. The iPad sits comfortably on my music stand next to my lead sheets (which are on an IPad Pro) so that the audience doesn't see any electronics. It does need an upgrade though, particularly a button to change a song to the next one in a single step.



Give me a break! I gave up after 18 minutes of trying to figure out the iOS version. I think you have to know DOS do use this app. I remember using the PC version of this program years ago. It was fantastic. Extremely easy. This is not.
