Well, I know it's not exactly a click track, but in the preferences you can set "Metronome while recording" and that will give you a click with whatever instrument you've chosen for your lead-in. I know it's not exactly what you asked, but off the top of my head, I'd say that would be the easiest way. I've never used a dedicated click track when recording in BIAB myself. Usually I pick a drum track (usually MIDI), something that's close to the feel I want. Then I decide later if I wa

The original mix of this song was created purely with keyboard simulating the sound of various instruments. I like the arrangement but it sound so artificial. I bought BIAB a month ago and tried improving the mix and I really love it, given that the instruments used are real!!!

I know because I sold thousands of them to Greg when I imported for him. Donny

I am using it with Windows 10 64-bit but I only use it to replicate the spacebar. Works great that way. I can't comment on the long command string, never tried that.

There is, by the way also a free version, but that doesn't support creating new MIDI styles I believe.
