I responded to a query from David Snyder in the Recording, Mixing, Performance and Production section.
His question was Does Anyone Know How to Convert Real Drums to Midi???? was greeted with enthusiasm and another member, MountainSide, suggested that I post this tip here, so here goes.

1.Using a drum style with notation, drag the drums from the Mixer panel or from the top panel into the MID section of the drag'n drop area at top left just below the Master.

2.After a couple of seconds the MID section will turn green.

3.Put BIAB into DAW mode then drag MID into an empty RB track.

4.Edit/Midi/Split Midi Drums will separate the drums into individual tracks.

5.Drums split into individual tracks.

Hope this is of use,

Vintage

edit; I tried to add pictures using the File Manager function, but they don't show?

Try renaming the pictures to .JPG. Some other picture formats may not be accepted.

I Have followed the instructions but when I get to step three
I am unable to drag the green mid file into an empty track.

(the drum track shows notation-Im using the latest BB and Im using windows10)
Many thanks in advance.

An even simpler way is to just mute all the other tracks and save the song as a midi file, the program then automatically takes care of the rest and no flaky drag-n'-drops needed cool

Sorry, can't help much, I have never had any problems dragging MID from BIAB into RB.
BIAB should be in DAW mode and visible in reduced size overlaying RB.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
