I have 2014 BIAB installed plus sampletank 2.5.
Sampletank is authorized and I can hear sounds from it when running in stand alone mode.
All the audio files are in the C:\programfiles(x86)\IKmultimedia\Sampletank 2.5\Band In a Box sub-directory where they are supposed to be.

In BIAB selecting Hi-Q menu choice from mixer pop-up- BIAB will report files as missing:

for example a drum part:

Hi-Q 001 01 Drums, Acoustic, Rock Kit SampleTank.tgs ** not found in C:\Program Files (x86)\IK Multimedia\SampleTank 2.5\Instruments\Band-in-a-Box\

or strings:

Hi-Q 050 01 Strings, Ensemble, Movie SampleTank.tgs ** not found in C:\Program Files (x86)\IK Multimedia\SampleTank 2.5\Instruments\Band-in-a-Box\

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

Navigate to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\IK Multimedia\SampleTank 2.5\ and see if you can find a subfolder called Band-In-A-Box in any of the folders in the SampleTank2.5 directory. If so, please let me know it's path.

Regards,
Noel

I just found a previous forum thread after I posted - sorry to duplicate.

The path is c:\Program Files(x86)\IK Multimedia\sampletank 2.5\Instruments\Band In A Box.

Sampletank work as a standalone.

I started BIAB as administrator.

When accessing ST I got a yellow pop up menu suggesting I move the band in a box folder up one level and put it under "sampletank 2.5"

Does that sound right? I didn't get the pop up starting BIAB in normal mode.

I will try it.

Hi Tom,

I wouldn't put the BIAB files up a level. Sampletank needs to have the files it seeks all off the same level/directory. That's usually the default ...\Instruments directory.

Have you tried going to BBW.EXE in the \bb directory and setting its permissions to "Administrator"? This is done by right clicking on the file and opening the "Properties" option. If I recall correctly from an earlier post, setting permissions is worth trying.

Regards,
Noel

OK, I've heeded your advice.

I set all permissions to 'allow' - - but when I try to adjust sST in DXI window it states I am not running ST in Admin Mode - restart in admin mode. It has full permissions.

However the issue of the 'lost' tgs files etc is not solved. BIAB still cannot find the sounds though they are in what seems to be the correct path.

Tom,

My files are in a sub-folder called Band-in-a-box. If your sub-folder does not have the above exact name with hyphens, try renaming it.

Also, at some point in time it might pay to shut down and reboot your computer (not simply start it up from hibernate/sleep).

Regards,
Noel

I'll check the path name, but wasn't it created by the installer?

I've given bbw full permissions, as well as all the files in the sampletank folder.

Have done a full re-boot and actually re-installed Hi-Q files. That didn't do it.

I'm at work, so will check actual path name when I get home.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

See how you go. If the problem persists, it probably means that you'll need to (re)set Sampletank's default path. I'll explain how to do that if you don't get any joy.

Out of curiosity ...

1. Are you using the free Sampletank that came with BIAB?

2. Have you authorized ST through IK Multimedia?

3. Have you used ST on earlier versions of BIAB?

Regards,
Noel

Tom,

I'm replying to your recent comments in the other thread. I've noticed from other posts over recent months that logging into your computer as administator is not enough. People have reported that it's actually necessary to go to the file bbw.exe and give it administration priviges by right-clicking on it and opening the files "Properties". Is that how you set BBW.EXE? If not, it's definitely worth trying.

Regards,
Noel

Tom,

(I'm not sure if you saw this post above so I'm just putting it below in case it slipped past.)

Out of curiosity ...

1. Are you using the free Sampletank that came with BIAB?

2. Have you authorized ST through IK Multimedia?

3. Have you used ST on earlier versions of BIAB?

Also ...

4. How are you running BIAB (from your computer's hard drive or the USB drive?

5. What directory / folder do you have BIAB installed to?

Sorry for the questions but it's important for me to appreciate your set-up.

Kind regards,
Noel

THIS may answer it - and I never thought of it.

Checking IK's FAQ's it turns out ST 2.5 is NOT a 64 bit plug-in.

I run Windows 7 64 bit.

It's not going to work no matter what..
IK has posted Sampltank 3.0 will be the 64 bit compatible plugin.

Amplitude 3 DOES run in 64 - so I've never had an issue with it.

OY!!

I wish PG Music had that info posted somewhere to save all these headaches. I'll just skip HI-Q for now.

I've discovered that ST 2.5 is not a 64 bit plug-in. It's in the IK Multimedia FAQ's.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Professional.

Dang - lot of trouble for nothing -skipping HI-Q for now.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.

Read even more great feedback here.
