With Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows, the Audio Edit Window GUI has been updated to include a dedicated settings button and a Marker Mode button. Plus, editing features can now be applied to the entire track (if no specific region is highlighted).

We've also added the following items to the Edit button within the Audio Edit Window:

  • Paste (Mix) - This will mix the audio from the clipboard with the existing audio instead of overwriting it. You will be given the option to set the percentage of the existing audio to keep and the pasted audio to mix in.
  • Paste (Insert) - This will insert the audio from the clipboard to the current location, instead of overwriting the existing audio. The audio to the right of the insertion point will be shifted to make room for the new audio.
  • Delete - This will delete the selected region of audio.
  • Insert Silence - This will insert silence at the cursor. The duration of the silence inserted will be equal to the duration of the selected region.
  • Convert Channels - If the audio is stereo, this will convert it to mono. If it’s mono, this will convert it to stereo. You will be given the option to set the percentage of the left and right channels to include.
  • Harmonize - This will launch the Audio Harmony dialog, which can be used to harmonize the selected region of audio.
  • Transcribe - This will transcribe the audio to the Melody or Soloist track.
  • Fix Tuning - This will automatically correct the tuning of the selected region according to the key of your song. For example, in the key of C, if a C# is detected then it will be transposed down to C or up to D depending on which one is closer.

Would you be able to clarify this, please? Is it a pitch to MIDI converter for any audio, or does it work only on those RealTracks that have notation?

It is indeed a pitch to MIDI converter, meant for a monophonic instrument (trumpet, human voice, etc.)

That's very cool, and I didn't realize that. I will have to check this out because that is a powerful tool. Thank you.

  • Paste (Mix) - This will mix the audio from the clipboard with the existing audio instead of overwriting it. You will be given the option to set the percentage of the existing audio to keep and the pasted audio to mix in.

This will paste between instances, so you can have another instance of BB running with a realdrum track file loaded into the audio track with all the drum shots at the end then copy and merge these hits into the realdrum track of your song that has been moved to the audio track.
This way you can create up your realdrum track just how you want it.

I don’t even understand all of this in practical terms—but it all sounds very practical. Can’t wait to try the new features!
