Hey Noel! Nice to hear from you again! So, to begin with, BIAB gives me this "Plogue Sforzando" virtual instruments plugin, that I had no concept of what it was all about, until one day I got involved and discovered that this thing was a gold mine needing to be explored! I couldn't believe the treasure trove of sounds this thing offered. If I could put this sample together with hardly any experience, the world is in big trouble when I find out what I'm doing!!! =D Thanks again for th

Hello Darkra85, Welcome to the forum. When you purchased PowerTracks Pro did you order the DVD or download the file from thee site? The white DVD sleeve has a serial number sticker attached to the sleeve. The black banner across the top of each website page has a link to sign in or register to a sales account. You had to create a sales account prior to place an order for PowerTracks Pro. Sign in and navigate to the "My Account" page. Click on the "My Products" link to

Woodshedding - Learning to Play!
Thanks guys. I must admit I find Pipeline's app a bit hard to get my head around, the post has mainly tech talk i.e. it reads kind of like a developer log with no overview; it also starts off saying I need to install something called AutoHotkey, yet I don't see any screenshot or short video which sort of shows me what it'as all about, and why I should find this and set this up. Has anyone used it? Does AutoHotkey cause problems?

Ben, I suspect it's Matt's #1 choice above that might be causing the issue. If you are not sure how to "Run as administrator", shut down BIAB.... right-click on the start-up short-cut.... select "Run as administrator". Does that help? Regards, Noel

Dani, I loved it! You're fast becoming the ultimate forum expert in that classic surf sound with those amazing 'Jan and Dean' and 'Beachboy' harmonies. I found it absolutely impossible to sit still while I was listening to your song. By around bar 2 or 3, my feet were tapping, my fingers were tapping and I was smiling. Thanks for sending 3 minutes of enjoyment my way! All the best of summer and sunshine to you and Lin, Noel

Bottom line, I enjoyed it very much. Thanks Josie for your very kind and encouraging words

Jump to new posts Re: loop playback by lambada @ Yesterday at 08:47 PM

I always do everything in unfold mode. I never use repeats etc. I'm interested, does anyone use the loop modes and if so why? I guess for practice purposes eg 2,5,1 patterns etc. I just prefer the flexibility/simplicity of being able to edit everything individually, but perhaps I'm missing something... BIAB is such a massive and versatile beast.

Jump to new posts Re: Can't open SEQ files by caplive @ Yesterday at 04:50 PM

Yes, I save as midi file. When I add audio (guitar vocals etc) I save as a seq file. I know the seq files won't even open. The midi songs open but all the tracks in the song volume is 100%. There must be something like "PowerTracks event list" in Studio One somewhere. I did find a window somewhere with a slider that controlled the volume but, I did not see how to save it. I only got the Studio One because I can't open or find many plugins in PowerTracks.

Nothing to be sorry about Steve, I've been hoping this thread would be updated. My whole situation has changed. I've just retired and a house purchase came up suddenly that I couldn't turn down so now I live up in the mountains 125 miles outside of LA. Great area but no cable so my cord cutting options are limited. ATT is running fiber optic within 5 or 10 miles of me and I've been told it's coming into my community but not yet.
