70. The manual mentions that Rax can be used with Band-in-a-Box® as an Audio Unit or VSTi host. How can I set this up?

You can find Rax through a simple google search like rax+mac.

Here are the basic steps for using Band-in-a-Box® 2009 with Rax version 2. Note that these instructions may vary if you are using different versions of Band-in-a-Box® and RAX...

  1. Open Rax.
  2. Open Band-in-a-Box® (after opening Rax).
  3. Click on MIDI | ** Select MIDI Driver or Apple DLS Synth.
  4. Select 'MasOS X CoreMIDI' and click [OK]
  5. Set the Bass output to Rax 1 and click [<-- Set all ports to this]. Press [OK].
  6. Now set up Rax: In the Instruments section at the bottom, click on 'add instrument'
  7. You can go to 'Apple' and choose 'DLSMusicDevice' or a different section to add a VSTi (any installed VSTi's should be listed under the name of the company that makes them).
  8. For each instrument, set the channel number on the far right below 'MIDI' (the channel to receive MIDI from - set it to 'Any' if you want it to receive from more than one channel).
  9. If you need to change which channels Band-in-a-Box® outputs on, click on MIDI | MIDI Settings in Band-in-a-Box®.
