This has got to be some stupid-basic setting I'm missing. I'm using an M-Audio Keystation MIDI kbd controller connected via USB and the VSC DXi synth. I can see the notes registering on the on-screen keyboard in BB, so I know I'm transmitting on the correct channel (5) and that the MIDI signal is getting through. But the notes, they no come a out. Wzup?

I jumped in at a good spot - I have the same issue. Finally bought a MidiSport UNO for my Roland EP7 keyboard. Driver is installed and selected. I can hear audio from MIDI in RealBand but, not BIAB. Can see keyboard entry on screen as well - just no audio. Using Coyote Forte synth.

I remember that when using the VSC DXi and any of my available controllers, when BB was first started up, I could not hear the DXi synth play from keyboard.

Had to press Play first and after that, all was okay.

I also used the ASIO drivers almost exclusively with it. Less lag time.

UNcheck "route MIDI Thru to Output" so that the keyboard will be directed to the VSC synth.

"ASIO always ON" and don't get carried away with the Good, Better, Best dropdown, Better is where I kept mine, the differences. if any, are so slight between Good and Best I couldn't hear it...

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
