HI Guys,

I'm wondering if I can use a MIDI controller to key in my cords with BIAB?

Thanks, JT

It is possible but I haven't done it myself.

The controller needs to be recognized by Band-in-a-Box so you can select it as a "MIDI Input Driver" in the MIDI/Audio Drivers Set Up window.

Then you enter chords onto the chord sheet by first playing the chord and then pressing both Control and Enter keys (Ctrl+Enter) at the same time (simultaneously) on the pc keyboard.

Hope this helps!

I’m trying to get out of using the computer keyboard altogether. I guess it won’t work then…
Thanks Jim.

Even using a MIDI controller you would need to use a computer keyboard to perform some tasks in Band-in-a-Box.
