Good Morning,

I also use IREALPRO, they actually show the chord layed out on keyboard- just 1st inversion. This would be real helpful to people like me

Bob, the BIAB keyboard display shows the notes being played, though it's a challenge to catch any particular chord. Are you saying you would like this or something similar, but always in first inversion rather than how they were actually voiced?

Hi Matt
Sorry it took so long to answer, haven't been feeling to good lately. I have multiple cancers. Doing better again, you reply was correct. On another note would you know anyone down here in NJ that could tutor me ( for money) to really help me make real arrangements not the stock stuff by just entering chords
Regards
Bob

#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."

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!
