When I import a MIDI file that has lyrics, the lyrics show in the event list like this:

2:1:000 [Text=1=15=0]And

But are not visible in the notation window.

I understand the
2:1:000 is Bar/Beat/Tick

I have tried editing them but I can't find how to change whatever [Text=1=15=0] does.

My questions are:

What does [Text=1=15=0] mean?
How do I edit them on mass so they show up in the notation window?
Or is there something I should ensure I do before I import them?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Can you upload the midi file you are trying to edit.
Open the one below and see if you get lyrics.

Hi Mark Scalotti!

What version year of the program and build are you using? If you're not sure about the build, you can check under Help | About Band-in-a-Box and it will provide a 3 digit number in brackets.

Also, when you are importing the MIDI file, are you using the File | Open Special, File | Open, or File | Import? If you are using File | Import and using 2021 in specific, where are you directing the data to?

This info will help us to best assist you with the version you're using.


Cheers,
Ember

Hi

Thanks for your replies.

I'm now using Version 2021 (844) 64 bit application on Windows.

Very interesting asking this...
>Also, when you are importing the MIDI file, are you using the File | >Open Special, File | Open, or File | Import? If you are using File |

I've been importing the melody from a MIDI file from the Edit Melody Track>Import Melody From Midi File to the Melody Track.

So I tried it with the MIDI file Pipeline supplied "Midi-Lyrics.kar.mid" and no lyrics at all appear in the sheet but in the lyric editor it has multiple instances of "Non-Lyric". If I go to edit each "Non-Lyric" the actual lyric is in the edit box!

Next I tried Open Special>Open MIDI file (I had not tried that before!)

Midi-Lyrics.kar.mid - Appears with lyrics and the lyrics editor shows them as expected.

Using my own MIDI files, they too also import with lyrics and the lyrics editor shows them as expected.

So it seems that it's the
Edit Melody Track>Import Melody From Midi File
is the bit that's not working correctly.

I really want to just import the melody and lyrics from the MIDI file, rather than the whole file, but this gives me a work around.

File > Open will do it also.
If you go to the Sequencer in Tools and remove the instrument you don't want then load a new style:

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
