Hi, y'all--
I have Ray Leatherwood's bass part of CRY ME A RIVER in Cm transcribed in MuseScore. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to output this from MuseScore into BBWin20 as a bass solo track? And if this is possible, can you point me to a tutorial to get me going on this?
Thank you very much,
--Ken

Help! I've still got one problem. When I imported the MIDI file (which sounded exactly like an upright bass in Windows Media Player or other programs, which is what I wanted), it came in as "instrument 27 Jazz Electric Guitar". I can't figure out how to change this back to an acoustic bass. If I try to "select Real Tracks", the bass track that I select plays its own melody, rather than the notes that are in the MIDI file. How do I fix this?

Thanks again!

Look at the track menu.

I'm sorry, Pipeline, but I've been trying for hours and cannot figure out what you were trying to teach me in your last message. I've uploaded a "one chorus + tag" version of Cry Me A River, which has what should be an acoustic bass soloing throughout, but has instead an electric guitar: "https://www.rivercityimageworks.com/customer/BB/Cry Me A River - 1 CHORUS.MGU" and I put the MIDI file I used at "https://www.rivercityimageworks.com/customer/BB/Cry Me A River - Bass-NEW2.mid". If you can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Pipeline, what you sent me is perfect... exactly what I want. However, I don't understand what you did, or how I can do it myself. I can see the piano notes, as played, in the piano roll, both in my (bad) version of the song and in your (correct) version of the song. But I cannot see the bass notes in your version of the song or in my incorrect, electric guitar version. I don't know what you are talking about when you refer to "program changes" and "double arrow" (and what I am supposed to delete). If you haven't yet run out of patience with me, please explain further.

See in the Piano Roll view it's set to the Bass track
and the View/Edit is set to Program
once you remove any instrument changes you just set it in the Mixer/Track to the instrument you want.
See as I move up/down to select the instrument to change to, it will set it to that instrument when the cursor passes otherwise it will use the default you set it to in the Mixer/Track menu.

FULL SCREEN then to zoom in to see what's happening use your ctrl+ mouse wheel
