To create the same chord sheet in EZKeys Standalone or VST and then fit any midi from the EZKeys browser.

In BB > Prefs > Chord Output



Save to MID > File on Disk

Set the key in EZKeys to the same key as the Biab song and tempo if in standalone.

Drag the saved midi file into EZKeys

Select the BB Chord Output track





Use the scissors to cut the bars selection




Select a suitable phrase in the EZKeys browser



Select Use Browser Midi, and replace if it fits.

Damn, you folks are good!

By the way, this is so cool. With this feature I can bring in only the chord chart and have EZKeys interpret it, or... I can bring in the actual BIAB supermidi rendition and have the BIAB midi played by the EZKeys sounds.

Only problem is remembering all this stuff everytime. Glad we have this great forum to help with that problem.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but you can load the EZKeysVST into a midi track and > Select Custom Midi Style for this track > Choose from Presets.
You can drag midi from a Biab track either midi or realchart (track name has underscore, Synth Organ Piano ) to Drop MID then into EZKeys Browser Library/User then in EZKeys select the midi in the chord track and select Use Browser MIDI to re-fit it to the Chords in EZKeys.
To export x bars highlight those bars then do a Drag Export.

EZKeys Library should be here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Toontrack\EZkeys\Midi
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Toontrack\EZkeys\Midi

/Library/Application Support/EZKeys/MIDI
/Library/Application Support/Toontrack/EZKeys/MIDI


Also look at RapidComposer standalone or VST in this Tip n Tricks forum.
Use with MiniHost http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=394808#Post394808
