32.Can I enter a melody into Band-in-a-Box using the computer keyboard?

Here is a method that you can use to record a melody into Band-in-a-Box using the computer keyboard:

Go to the Play menu and make sure ‘Wizard Playalong Feature’ is enabled.

Start recording.

Choose any key on your computer keyboard (N for example) and strike it in time with the notes of your melody. The idea here is not to get the note pitches right, just the durations.

When you have finished, keep the take. Next, put the Notation Window into editable notation mode. From here, you can step forward or backward note by note using the keypad “Ins” and “Del” keys. While doing so, you can use the up-down arrow keys to change the pitch each note. This method works great for non-keyboardists, and is also useful for adjusting existing melodies.
