Nice and Sweet, but alas for me unusable in a serious mix due loud fretnoise, nail or cufflink clicks in some files ... F

I personally don't mind fret noise. Adds to the realism in my view.

True, but sometimes you get a client asking questions about certain noises, especially when you deliver a mix for a video sound track or backup 'tape', and of course you can edit clicks out in an audio sequence file. When i was working as musician in studio situations a sound tech mostly abandons recordings with too loud fret noises etc, mostly asking you to redo a take or do a punch in repair. One can always add fret noises, got samples if i really need 'em. F

fiddler2007,

Perhaps you can create a song file that includes the noise, freeze the tracks then send the file to PG support. Tell them about which bars have the extra noises and direct them to this thread. There is a chance they can edit out the noise and release the change in a future update.

Maybe a good idea, but there are more nice guitar RTs, especially Quinn is one of my fav players .. F

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!
