Just purchased an Irig Keys midi controller.
Found bad latency when building a song midi file in Power Tracks 2016.
Tried ASIO but unable to play and record at same time.

Bit the bullet and tried RealBand 2018 with its WAS driver.
Wow!! Play and record works fine with almost undetectable latency on the keys input.

Thanks Jeff and all at PG Music.

Thanks for relating your findings. Yes the WAS driver is a very welcome addition.

Glad RB is working for you but there's no problem with PT, all you missed is checking the box "ASIO always on" in the audio drivers window. Do that and you can hear and record at the same time. It's the same thing with RB if you use ASIO but as you found out WAS is just as good.

I play 4 days a week and prefer PT. Less resources etc. More stable.
Create songs in RB.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
