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.

Can this method be used in Reaper? Or does it only work with Real Band?
Thank you!

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
