How can I get rid of the 2 bar lead-in that gets inserted when importing a MIDI file created in Band-in-a-Box?
In Band-in-a-Box Versions 11 and earlier, you can choose whether or not you want the 2 bar lead-in included in the MIDI file. This is done in the Opt. | Preferences dialog. Alternatively, the lead-in can be easily removed using the Bars Window in PowerTracks. Highlight the 2 bars and use Edit | Cut (Close gap) to remove the bars. Note: If the Midi file was imported from Band-in-a-Box, there may be important program/pan/volume controls in the first bar. You may want to think about this, and consider moving these events to the start of the third bar.
