Is it possible to transfer BIAB audio or midi tracks to Sonar?

Band-in-a-Box has a feature called "dropzone"to facilitate moving midi or audio tracks between BiaB and alsmost any DAW.

Step-by-step instructions are available +++ HERE +++ courtesy of user Noel96.

You can use the dropzone but I have sometimes found it simpler to simply open BiaB/PT/RB and set it to the left half of the screen, then
open the DAW and set it to the right half of the screen (or vice versa)

.. then simply drag the tracks from PGMusic software to the DAW.
In the image below I had selected a track in Powertracks, clicked the Track number and held it, then dragged to Reaper.
Done
The audio was imported cleanly (stereo tracks were imported as stereo, and mono tracks imported as mono)
Track by Track they imported to another DAW quickly/efficiently.

I've done the same from Realband, I don't recall the last time I took tracks directly from BiaB, but I would suspect it works much the same.

I still use DAW mode and drag the tracks, which just makes Rharv’s method easier but is not essential.

Anyway, I thought this might be a presale question, because the question was only if it were possible. Yes, it is possible. There are several methods.

I use "export all tracks as Wav" which creates individual track files out of BIAB. I then drag the generated WAV files into my DAW, Studio One. I've found Studio One doesn't play nicely with other audio apps running at the same time. So this way allows me to export from BIAB, close the app and the open the DAW. Works for me.

This is a very good method. It is what you would do with other audio programs = standard practice.

100% of my music is done that very way.

BB >>> RB >>> Sonar

I export the tracks as waves to a folder named for the song. everything to do with that song ends up in that folder including the lyrics, BB & RB files, individual tracks and final exported waves. That makes it easy to find in the future and to create my backup with a simple copy to another drive.

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
