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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
