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.

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!
