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.

RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Spanish for Windows is Here!

¡Hay más de 50 nuevas características en Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Hay mejoras en RealTracks (RealTracks Vocal de Sonido más Suave, RealTracks Engrosamiento, RealTracks "Find-a-Sub" y MultiRiffs). La mayoría de los RealDrums ahora tienen RealCharts (con notación de batería precisa). Hay un nuevo navegador de Artistas RealTracks para encontrar información / biografías / enlaces / listas de RealTracks en todos los artistas. Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!
