Callie,

That's Matt Finley's specialty! He, jford, Videotrack and Pipeline are REALLY fast... and they know such a lot, too. S-o-o-o-o many times I've typed up a reply to a post only to discover that one of those four (and others) have slipped in somewhere between when I hit "Reply" and "Submit" smile

All the best,
Noel

If not before we hit Submit (and just go straight for the backspace key), don't I know it! crazy

As for the main topic: We were all "new" around here at some point, always a good thing to remember cool

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!
