That's a great article. Thanks! Of course it's possible to ignore the influence of pop and remain relevant, but it's always good to know what's happening in the ethers, plus a little genre-bending can't hurt in this day and age.

Very interesting. I've used call and response on several pop songs I've written. But everything else was a new thought process for me. T The staccato words followed by an extended legato is a really good piece of advice I'd not thought of before. I particularly like that element. Thanks for the post.

Wow, this is a really great read for those wanting to start writing their first songs, or even for people who have been writing for some time but are looking for a fresh approach. Thanks for the share!

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!
