With Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows, there is now a simpler dialog for choosing RealDrums, an alternative to the RealDrums Picker, and we call it the RealDrums QuickList! To access the QuickList, right click on the Drums track button and select [QuickList] RealDrums in Style:...

Filter by genre, time signature, feel, temo, and text! As you add your critera, you will see the RealDrums listing update to exactly what you're looking for!

From the BB Help File:
This is the simpler dialog for choosing RealDrums, an alternative to the RealDrums Picker. It displays all available RealDrums in a simple list, which can be easily filtered by genre, time signature, feel, and more. The list can be set to show only RealDrums that are compatible with the current style of the song. You can also set the highlighted RealDrums as a prototype RealDrums so that you can find alternates to that RealDrums.


We hope you are enjoying this new feature!!!!

Callie, That is really a great and handy feature.

As a reminder, we are still waiting for some fix about the issues already reported to the developpers.

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!
