This may be something that has been posted previously. If so, I apologize.

Will BiaB 2017 run on High Sierra OS?
My issue is that I use a MacBook Pro for my music and run Logic Pro X as my main OS. With the recent advent of update 10.4 for Logic, which has TONS of new updated features, I wished to update. I use El Capitan as my Mac OS. Didn't want to update further due to issues of 3rd party plugins potentially not working with an update to Sierra (next Mac OS update from El Capitan). I found, in attempting to update Logic, that 10.4 will not update with El Capitan, only with High Sierra OS (since Apple pulled the Sierra OS).
I'm currently able to update to High Sierra on my Mac, but am concerned that BiaB may be bricked if I do. I run Biab off the external HD (I initially purchased the Ultrapack Plus version shocked on external drive). I'd be willing to bite the bullet on some 3rd party plugins not compatible with High Sierra, but don't want to lose BiaB.
Any suggestions or comments, BiaBers?

Actually, you can still get Sierra here:

I was in the exact same boat as you, running El Capitan for as long as I could before Logic demanded upgrading. So last night I bit the bullet, upgraded to Sierra, and installed LPX 10.4.

Thanks Ron,
I'll check it out. I always want to move incrementally on updates and as long as I can get Logic update 10.4 to work on Sierra (now that I can get it), so much the better.
Thanks for your help.

BIAB 2017 runs fine in High Sierra—quite well, in fact.

Check my signature.

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box.

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!
