Have PT 2016 but unable to use Midi controller keyboard due to significant latency.
2018 Realband has negligible latency when using WAS.

Does 2017 Powetracks use WAS or should I wait for next version?

WAS (WASAPI) was added to RealBand 2018, and usually the update to PowerTracks generally follows a month or so later, so my guess is that it will be included with PowerTracks 2018. I double they will update 2017 for it, however (but hey, sometimes they surprise us). But for now, it's not available.

No. WAS compatibility is new for 2018 Band-in-a-Box and RealBand so I assume the feature will be added to 2018 PowerTracks.

Can either of the experts tell me whether I can use WAS and still input audio from my Behringer UMC 204HD usb interface using RealBand? Its just arrived and I haven't tried it yet and having had problems with Creative's ASIO drivers I would welcome a better system. Or do I have to use ASIO drivers from Behringer?

Bob,

The ASIO drivers supplied by Behringer should work fine. You can find them at the bottom of +++ this +++ page.

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!
