I'm running Windows 7 64bit and have BIAB 2015 Audiophile Edition. I installed Jbridge and still can't use my Waves 64bit plugins. I have Waves Diamond 9.3 VST 64 bit plugins. When I point BIAB to the plugin I get the same message I did before I installed Jbridge. It's saying that it's not a valid plugin and you can only use 32 bit plugins unless you have Jbridge.

Derryl -

Are you running the proper version of jBridge. Make sure you are running the 1.71b (beta) version. You can find it here --> jBridge 1.71b

Just enter your registered email address on that page and they will send you that version.

By the way, looks like we are neighbors connected by the three mile bridge. I'm over in Pensacola.

Hey guys, just an update. John was kind enough to get of skype with me and we got Jbridge working with my 64bit version of Kontact5 but no luck with Waves Diamond v9.3. What I did was uninstalled Jbridge and reinstalled basically. I think the first time I installed I don't think I used the correct password...maybe.


Anybody using Waves 64 bit with BIAB 2015 out there???
A long time ago I had Waves v5.0 32bit and it worked with the BIAB version I had at the time. Maybe BIAB 2012? Not sure.

Hi Popboy, I appreciate your help but could you give me some directions on how to use this? I read the GIF that came with the files but it wasn't clear to me what exactly to do. Thanks

Popboy, I just found these instructions and followed them
1 - Download Shell2vst.exe from here http://www.xlutop.co...p/shell2vst.zip
2 - Copy Shell2vst.exe to C:\Program Files\Waves\Waveshells
3 - Drag and drop each "WaveShell-VST x.x.x.dll" onto the shell2vst.exe (But not WaveShell-Direct X...dll or the WaveShell-Direct X...dll) If prompted to overwrite, choose "no"
4 - A new "Waves" folder will be created that contains all the waves plugins as individual .dll fils
5 - Copy the newly created "Waves" folder into your shared Vstplugins folder (Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Cakewalk\Vstplugins)
6 - Remove the WaveShells from your shared Vstplugins folder

Still not working...

IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!! What I had to do is just reinstall Jbridge after I followed the shell2VST instructions.

Derryl, using jbridge, can you use more RAM's worth of Kontakt libraries, than when running 32 bit Kontakt?

Nope, not with 32-bit Kontakt. You can use more RAM using the 64-bit Kontakt in a 32-bit host using jBridge, but 32-bit Kontakt has the same limitations as any other 32-bit application.

jBridge doesn't make a 32-bit VST(i) into a 64-bit VST(i) (and likewise, doesn't turn a 64-bit into a 32-bit), it only makes it available for use to the specific host. For example, running the jbridger utility (which you don't need to with BIAB), you can run 32-bit Kontakt in a 64-bit DAW, or you can run 64-bit Kontakt in a 32-bit DAW. If you are running the 32-bit Kontakt in a 64-bit DAW, the Kontakt VSTi will only be able to address approximately 3.3GB of RAM at the most (the limitation of 32-bit).

And if you are running a 32-bit operating system, you're not going to be able to run 64-bit anything (it won't even install). You have to be running a 64-bit operating system to be able to work with 64-bit plugins. And on a 32-bit operating system, you won't have any more than 3.3 GB RAM available anyway.

Derryl was able to get it to work with WAVES, using the Shell2VST utility and then re-installing jBridge. I think the Shell2VST was the missing element, as WAVES apparently did not present itself as a standard VST file.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
