Hi Callie,

Thanks for posting a link to this exporting midi video. Who is the narrator that created the video?

It is an interesting video. Even though I'm a big midi booster I find midi difficult to work with. Videos like this show me techniques and ways of doing things that can help me to establish a workflow that will make midi less intimidating and more fun.

Exporting midi is relatively easy... Opening midi is still problematic in some instances (most for me...)
If "markers" are present in the file (Midi), BIAB messes up sync between imported midi (on melody channel) and real tracks. Reported the problem over 2 month ago in detail with examples...So far have not heard back from the team.

There is a manual workaround, but not a very healthy one. Which requires opening Midi file in another program and getting rid of markers manually on each track and re-saving MIDI. I suspect that BIAB takes a marker or program change of the imported file and interprets it as a starting "note" and syncs start time to that marker.

Still patiently waiting for resolution/fix... and wondering if anybody else have same issues opening midi files and adding Realtrack in BIAB.

Hi,

I have to side with you on this issue. I've reported the problem about opening midi files on other relevant forums too (no solution). Will be looking for the answers and waiting for the way out and variants to solve this.
Btw, have you tried using SampleTank 3 or Garritan? Just curious.

Firstly, welcome.

Can you please explain the process you use to export MIDI?
Do you use the DAW, or use the File menu options etc?
What is in the original that is missing from the result?
Are you using RealTracks or MIDI tracks?
What version of BiaB do you have?

All of this can be beneficial to try to track down a possible cause.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
