BiaB 2018 won't load UVIworkStation Plug-in.
Before upgrade to Biab2018 from Biab2015 the UVIWorkStation plug-in worked fine.
It now does not load with Biab2018.
Does anyone has same issue ?

Can you find it but it won't successfully load, or is it that now you cannot find it at all?

SIMILAR problem here

when I try to Load UVIworkstation I get the following Fatal Error:

"standard blah blah blah error details:
"Could not find imported function in specified DLL."


this error pop-up occurs when I click OK, it again appears (so that's twice) I click OK but THEN it does LOAD UVI and UVI seems to work??

Larry


edit update

I thought it might be BECAUSE UVI workstation requires PACE/iLOk but I tried a number of other plugs that use PACE/iLOk all without issue

It might be worthwhile reporting this to PG Music support. If you do, please provide them with as much detail as possible.

PG Music sell the Ravenscroft Piano plugin that uses UVIWorkstation.

Hopefully a fix is just around that proverbial corner.

It's not the development tools, its a poor coder (carpenter, welder, painter, writer,...) that blames his tools!

It is simply a matter of the time, money and ability to actually TEST all branches in all conditions for all possible configurations, or even conceive of all branches, conditions and configurations, simply not feasible.

Ask any large, and honest, Asian, AU, CA, EU, UK or US gov't, military, commercial, or medical SW developer.

I have yet to buy a BUG free music program or DAW from ANYBODY (that's why they PATCH)!

Yes, excellent point Larry.

As long as the developers are being proactive to quickly resolve identified issues, that's all we can ask for.

Regular updates with bug-fixes is acceptable to me.

Larry,

Bad tool could limited the feature of program, make coders harder to program, create bugs ect.
I understand that there's no program is free of bug, but the program has just released in one week but had two patches. This tell me that it's not enough testing prior release.

PG had a great ideal in creating this piece of SW for music but need to improve UI and should utilize the current hardware of PC: build 64bis app. There's the tool like QT to devel. the sw for both WIN and MAC.

It's just my opinion.

Well, you know it's like a cult thing. You will have people defend Delphi to the death, but I didn't know they were still around. I'm guessing we looking at one of the biggest reasons it is still around ... sort of like a living legend.

It is a very impressive program by any means, but you think they would have moved on to something with more meat on the bone. You can only fatten up a game hen so much before you have to start pulling out the bigger bird to feed the masses, imho.

It seems to work for the most part, but come on people please don't try and pretend this thing isn't showing its age!

Edit: It also needed a $10 "walker" in order to run. Go figure!

Paid pretty good money for this program, I do believe that should come with more benefits than a program given away for free.

You might be comfortable with accepting that, but most pay money for a program in hopes that the developers will keep the program up-to-date. Not just with new features, but also the "core" engine.

I understand where you're coming from and I do agree. It would be nice to have regular updates and bug fixes, but as a paying customer we can ask for more. We might not get what we ask for, but at least they are made aware of it.

You might have been around here too long, this is not opensource, nor is it freeware. Let's get them to step up their game even higher.

The programming is tight and can speak for itself, so I guess I'll just leave it at that.

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!
