54. Can I import my Band-in-a-Box® songs into GarageBand?

You can import your Band-in-a-Box® compositions into GarageBand for fine-tuning, or to play them with the GarageBand software instruments. GarageBand (versions 2 and higher) support the direct import of MIDI or AIFF files. Click on the .MID button to save your Band-in-a-Box® song as a MIDI file, or render your song to AIFF. Then open GarageBand and import the file by dragging it from Finder into the GarageBand timeline.

There is more information about saving Band-in-a-Box® songs for use in other programs, in in this faq topic.

There is some more information about GarageBand in our GarageBand tutorial.

The "Advanced Features Video" on this page also describes how you can work with GarageBand.

Yes you can. A cousin of mine recently transferred his garageband songs into band-in-a-box. I believe it can also work the other way round. Edit: he used the musconv tool . here's the link http://www.musconv.com/ . Let me know if it works for you smile

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
