This is my entry into the Jazz category of the Xtra Styles Contest. The style I used was TRINKET. I added some tracks from BiaB. I sang the song myself with harmonies added by Larry Marrs. The track was mixed and edited using Cubase. The URL is: http://www.solidsterlingmusic.com/i-m-on-the-right-track-now/. The Solid Sterling Music website contains more than 200 songs written or co-written by me using BiaB.

Dear Mr. Tomlinson...

I just now listened to your song, "I'm On The Right Track Now." What a charming (and inspirational) little story you told!

The melody is warm as a smile, the rhythm invites a dance, and I really like the line "...you can't get a hit unless you swing." Now, ain't that the unvarnished truth!

Glad you posted it, and congratulations on your win!

Sincerely,

"bluage"

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!
