1. Open song in Realband, hold the Windows key and hit the right arrow to make RB take the right side of the screen.

2. Open Reaper, hold Windows key and hit left arrow to make Reaper take left side.

3. Click a Track number in RB and drag it to the Reaper track area.

Tip: Set Reaper to the same Tempo as RB beforehand if you want the bars to line up.

(right-click then view image makes it a little larger, and then you can notice you also get the RT name/# in Reaper too, though preceded by 'Untitled_')

As a side note, just discovered the Abbey Road Redd theme for Reaper; very cool.
We live in good times
Called 'Re(a)DD' in the theme section.

Thanks for the tip! (google search of "Realband vs Reaper" brought me to this post!

I was trying this out last night and noticed the thing about presetting the tempo before dragging the files into Reaper from Realband

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
