I found this free download to be easy to read but also very thorough about how to set up your PC for audio. It is similar to the Black Viper guide but more wide-ranging and good at explanations.

I knew all the tips here, but I thought this was the best-written collection of all I’ve seen over the decades. Since Windows 10, I really only worry about one tweak: setting power to always on (and all that entails),

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!
