Rob, Love this type of tune; could listen to this one all day. You're too humble on your vocal--the range and falsetto work very well. Wonderful sound and production. The Roy Orbison call out is spot one—he would have killed this—but your lower pitch vocal holds its own easily. Great electric guitar solo as well. Terrific from start to finish. Best Regards, Deej

David, Charlie and Sundance (and another shout out to Samuel): Thanks for the listen and chiming in. I will play with correcting the over-drumming at some point; as I learn more, hopefully I'll get a little better at those things. But glad you all enjoyed the tune (despite the heavy metal drummer!). Appreciate the support and kind feedback. My best to you all, Deej

Jump to new posts Midi control of patches by KJFOW @ 05/22/18 06:13 PM

Hi, anyone know if it is possible to use a midi foot controller to change the instruments on a plug in? I have a Fishman Triple Play pick up on my guitar and play along via the thru channel to songs. What I am trying to achieve is being able to change the instrument selection for the Thru channel as I am playing. Thanks for any help.

Hi Ffreniere, If you shut down the computer, disconnect the BIAB drive, then turn the computer back on, is that ESP device still listed? If not, does it reappear when you reconnect the hard drive? It looks like ESP is an EFI System Partition, so this may be a partition on your main hard drive, not the USB drive. The above test will tell us more. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/9612d18b-9be3-478b-a4ae-f0f934971b96/why-am-i-getting-a-new-drive-listed-called-esp-f?for

+++ HERE +++ is a technical article from Steinberg detailing differences between VST2 and VST3. The article also mentions VST3.5. It's interesting to discover the release dates of the various VST specifications. VST was 1996, VST2 was 1999 while VST3 specifications were released in 2008. Here it is, 2018 and Steinberg will finally be ending VST2 support in October. That's almost twenty years of support for a specification. While I'm very sorry to read that support for the VST2 specificatio

Hi Cubalibre, If you open the RealTracks Picker, check the box marked "Show RealTracks that are N/A" (so that you see all of the RealTracks we make), then click Copy List, you'll get a list that includes all of them. Thanks Kent PG Music

Its my go to app for learning new songs these days, easy to load a song, slow down, change key, drag curser along timeline to loop a section. chord detection for basic chords isn't bad either. Some of the above features can be done in other software or Daws, but for speed of use I love Riffstation.

Band-in-a-Box for Windows
If it's pulsating (about .5 sec on off sound), you're on windows 10 and use USB audio the cause is probably some windows update, graphics related. Get the latest graphics driver, set or choose basic settings with no gaming acceleration, and switch off power management for USB. IMO Windows 10 updates automatically screws up latter settings BTW, why i always switch it off and use an external program to select only the necessary security updates. -F

Thanks Herb. I made the changes you suggested, and all except the oohs and ahs worked great. I just haven't mastered the RT's for the BG vocals yet. I think I might ask my granddaughter to do some layered vocals on this one. Maybe that will work for me. By the way, the piano track was A bent note style by John Jarvis. Piano Soloist 2638. I am a great admirer of Floyd Cramer, and this was as close to the real thing as I could find. Thanks again and be well.

Excellent! Both RB and BIAB benefit from being run in administrator mode. If you want to set the "Run as administrator" permanently... 1. Right-click on the RB shortcut. 2. Select "Properties". 3. Under the 'Compatibility' tab, set the option "Run as administrator". 4. OK your way out of the settings window. Now you'll be able to click on the shortcut to start RB and it will automatically start in admin. mode. All the best, Noel one of my songs: With You I
