My favourite thing about BIAB is the icon on my desk top which starts the program. One little tap and very soon my "band" is ready to play laugh cool
No arguing, no "where the **** is the bass player?" We are all ready to go!

One little tap unleashes creativity

All true but I do have a problem. When the guitarist gets drunk the whole band get drunk grin gringrin

Ps - can't fire the guitarist as he runs the entire show wink

I've got a pretty good band but all good points here. With BIAB I don't have to worry if someone is going to miss a cue or show up late to rehearsal. Best of all they all kind of know what I'm thinking and the sound I am looking for. I love BIAB.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

Check it out! www.pgmusic.com/?vid=2AgfV7emdLQ

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
