Hey Senn5,

I actually got some amazing results loading two different, but similar, fiddle RealTracks on 2 separate tracks. You can have them play simultaneously for great texture, and also, do all sorts of incredible "call and response" phrases with the multi-riff feature in RealBand (the options you get in massaging the parameters there is mind-blowing!)

As you may or may not be aware, a lot of RTs have a regular and a "bluesy" option. This can be utilized to great effect when using both together.

Good tips !

AND what annoys me in particular is that some (older) fiddle backing tracks mis-behave with beat count changes within a song, like an in-between 2/4 bar in a 4/4 song, WHEN SET TO HALF TIME. See pic below.

Maybe at PG some one can edit the existing ones like below that they can be set to 'normal time' instead of 'halftime' when used in a plm 140-170 BPM so that one does not have to use half time .... F

Twin fiddles is used many times as a pad in Western Swing so I would really like some twin fiddle UserTracks or RealTracks.

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!
