Using Power Tracks 2020 Version 3 today, I recorded a bit of MIDI piano. When I clicked on accept this take, I got a message from Power Tracks that some additional audio data was also recorded, and would I like to have it placed on a spare track at the bottom of the session. I only highlighted the MIDI track when I prepared to record, so I'm not sure why some additional Audio was recorded. What am I missing?

It records both by default (perhaps you intended to record audio but had a MIDI track selected), but you can uncheck "record both audio and MIDI" - click on the Record button drop-down menu.

Also, if you click on the little triangle on the record button, you get a menu of options where you can choose what you wish to record (see image below).

That's what Andrew suggested; the Recording button drop down.
In jford's image the bottom checkbox is what Andrew mentioned (always record audio and MIDI).

FWIW this setting is also available in the Audio Prefs area (under Options).
It's the bottom arrow in the below image. Once unchecked, PT only records whatever the target track type dictates by simply hitting record.
However, you may accidentally not record anything if you think you are recording audio, but the track type is MIDI (and vice versa). There is also a setting to determine what the default track type is. If you record audio tracks a lot, set it to audio, and the same for MIDI.
There are times when recording both is desired, and to be honest it is the best 'fail safe' option so you don't lose a take (likely why it is the default setting). But the options are there.

I like the setting, because my keyboard is connected to my system both as a MIDI input device, as well as an audio input device. So this allows me to choose either and/or both when recording something.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
