We've just added a MAJOR new feature to our Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac program - the Piano Roll Window!

If you have already purchased your Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, you can add this feature with our free patch update 258: http://www.pgmusic.com/support_macintoshupdates.htm#2018_258

The new Piano Roll window enables precise graphic editing of MIDI data including notes, velocity, controllers, program changes, channel aftertouch, and pitch bend.

A big thank you.... Pester power seems to have finally paid off.

.. just as I was reluctantly resigning myself to having to get used to using the BIAB Notation editor...

Now i'll have to find something else to pester PG Music about wink

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. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

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!
