In Real Band the default for the Metronome is to have it on during the recording process. I seem to always neglect to turn it off before I record audio. I always have to go back and delete the track content and start over after I uncheck the box. I can see the advantage of the metronome WITHOUT the beats being recorded while the recording process is taking place. I think changing the default would be a help.

It would be great to have MIDI output possible for chords while using DXi inserts.

When a midi instrument is converted to audio let that audio track be moved to the BIAB display Screen.
There is room in the black portion of the screen. The midi track converted could be deleted and
allow another instrument to be inserted.

It would also let one use the audio features such as reverb to enhance the audio. And it would also allow for more instruments to be used in a selection . Infact this the moving of Realtracts to the locations could also be done to free up the instrument Realtracks to allow for more instruments.

In conclusion, this process would allow for more instruments in an arrangement and make it possible to enhance the audio with various plugin such as tone, revert. etc.

Keep converted midi instruments to audio in BIAB. Display them where they can be combined with the arrangement. This would would free up the midi track another instrument. It would also allow for plug in effects to the audio version such as tone, reverb. You could add them to the right of the main screen in the black area. This would also allow for adding more instruments to an arrangement.

This sure would be helpful. One would not have to move them to Sonar for audio effects with plug ins.

Hi there.
Many users ask for importing MIDI files in BIAB for MAC, INCLUDING LYRICS to be displayed on Lyrics Window.
Moreover, indentation of chords similar to the WIndows version is also much requested, to help reading songs and playalong.

Very useful feature, because a MIDI track need to be tweaked in detail to sound well.
Other advantage : we can make all the the MIDI adjustements inside BIAB, we would not have to export the MIDI track in a DAW to make the MIDI adjustements. So, BIAB would really become a AIO arranger with advanced edition features.

If folks don't want this, it could of course be a recording option.

Jim, it's been awhile on this topic, but Peter Gannon commented that he could add options to export the MIDI at higher resolutions. As far as adjusting MIDI within BIAB, I have been able to accomplish the desired timing using the 120 ticks per quarter note.

More midi "clean up" tools that can be used to edit ghost notes, duplicate notes and other random notes recorded during live performances.

This would allow BBW users to send various midi instruments (guitar, piano, drums) to a mulit-port midi interface, then on to a particular sound engine, keyboard, etc.

Big +1. I have 2013 BIAB, presently if I find a midi part I want to use in an existing midi file I have to import the file into a midi editor (such as Cakewalk Music Creator), delete the unwanted midi parts, change the remaining part to the midi channel I want to use in BIAB, name and export the new midi file and then import into BIAB. While in the editing program I hope I didn't forget to change the midi file tempo or key signature otherwise I just messed up the song I'm working on in BIAB.

A midi file import filter with checkmark boxes to select what choices you want and user input boxes to input how BIAB should use the imported file would be REALLY nice.

Sure the miditracks picker will save me a lot of time finding midi parts, but the main reason I pass them up and keep looking is because so many sound so quantized and mechanical.
Or how about making an embellisher to humanize the bass, drums, and strings? That would help, but I think a lot of the midi parts need to be re-done.

The most important new midi feature I would like to see is the ability to use a midi surface controller within BIAB, RealBand and PowerTracks.

Many surface controllers are self learning; meaning you touch a control in the software with your mouse then twist a knob, push a button or move a slider on the controller and the controller assigns that control to send or receive midi information from/to the corresponding software control.

This provides for faster and more precise use of the controls inside the software.
