In Real Band the default for the Metronome is to have it on during the recording process. I seem to always neglect to turn it off before I record audio. I always have to go back and delete the track content and start over after I uncheck the box. I can see the advantage of the metronome WITHOUT the beats being recorded while the recording process is taking place. I think changing the default would be a help.

It would be great to have MIDI output possible for chords while using DXi inserts.

When a midi instrument is converted to audio let that audio track be moved to the BIAB display Screen.
There is room in the black portion of the screen. The midi track converted could be deleted and
allow another instrument to be inserted.

It would also let one use the audio features such as reverb to enhance the audio. And it would also allow for more instruments to be used in a selection . Infact this the moving of Realtracts to the locations could also be done to free up the instrument Realtracks to allow for more instruments.

In conclusion, this process would allow for more instruments in an arrangement and make it possible to enhance the audio with various plugin such as tone, revert. etc.

Keep converted midi instruments to audio in BIAB. Display them where they can be combined with the arrangement. This would would free up the midi track another instrument. It would also allow for plug in effects to the audio version such as tone, reverb. You could add them to the right of the main screen in the black area. This would also allow for adding more instruments to an arrangement.

This sure would be helpful. One would not have to move them to Sonar for audio effects with plug ins.

Hi there.
Many users ask for importing MIDI files in BIAB for MAC, INCLUDING LYRICS to be displayed on Lyrics Window.
Moreover, indentation of chords similar to the WIndows version is also much requested, to help reading songs and playalong.

Very useful feature, because a MIDI track need to be tweaked in detail to sound well.
Other advantage : we can make all the the MIDI adjustements inside BIAB, we would not have to export the MIDI track in a DAW to make the MIDI adjustements. So, BIAB would really become a AIO arranger with advanced edition features.

If folks don't want this, it could of course be a recording option.

Jim, it's been awhile on this topic, but Peter Gannon commented that he could add options to export the MIDI at higher resolutions. As far as adjusting MIDI within BIAB, I have been able to accomplish the desired timing using the 120 ticks per quarter note.

More midi "clean up" tools that can be used to edit ghost notes, duplicate notes and other random notes recorded during live performances.

This would allow BBW users to send various midi instruments (guitar, piano, drums) to a mulit-port midi interface, then on to a particular sound engine, keyboard, etc.

Big +1. I have 2013 BIAB, presently if I find a midi part I want to use in an existing midi file I have to import the file into a midi editor (such as Cakewalk Music Creator), delete the unwanted midi parts, change the remaining part to the midi channel I want to use in BIAB, name and export the new midi file and then import into BIAB. While in the editing program I hope I didn't forget to change the midi file tempo or key signature otherwise I just messed up the song I'm working on in BIAB.

A midi file import filter with checkmark boxes to select what choices you want and user input boxes to input how BIAB should use the imported file would be REALLY nice.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
