I found one that works to give more tracks in Biab, it will follow the looped section/play/stop/pause to the host.
energyXT 1.4 in the forum it says it's abondonware.
DropBox energyXT14VSTPlugin.zip

The newer version energyXT 2.6 don't work in BB if PG fix this you can buy the newer version. http://www.energy-xt.com/download/26/energyXT26VST.zip
there is no contact or support reply from any of the the email addresses.
I purchased it but the download was an old 2.6 standalone version and would not register 1.4

Load energyXT.dll into midi track plugin slot
or energyXTE.dll into audio Track Effects slot
Set your 32 bit vst folder, you can also Browse to a vst and drag it into the chain window then connect it (left click to disconnect)
Add a Sequencer, double click to open it
Add Audio or Midi track, if you want to add FX to a track, in the main chain window click on the "1" to add EQ or VST
Click on the "C" and drag to pan track
Double click the VST name to bring up GUI
Tracks drag straight in from DROP WAV/MIDI
In Options Sync Mode > External
To be able to save the session right click chain window at the bottom Install License File > massiva.key

Pipeline: love your screenshots. What app do you use, (and cost).

I use (older) Hypersnap 6. I love it but your images are much sharper.

Thanks

I use the Print Screen or Alt + Print Screen (for current window) button on my keyboard then paste (Ctrl+V) into windows Paint or http://www.irfanview.com/ free, then select area of image by dragging mouse then Ctrl+Y to crop or Ctrl+R to resize.

Pipeline,

I appreciate your response. I also use Irfanview, great utility. Did you know you can press F12 and bring up a moveable Paint ribbon bar? Hopefully this returns the favor of your sharing Cntrl Y and Cntrl R.

I wasn't aware of Cntrl Y and Cntrl R.

Thanks JF, I remember you had to install that Paint now they have put it in there, F12 I will have to remember that, Shift+G is useful and the Plugin Pak http://www.irfanview.com/plugins.htm

Here's some multichannel drums:

Also in Irfanview, Ctrl+T to add text in mouse selection.

I got energyXT 2.6 vst to work by first loading IL MiniHost Modular 32.dll then load energyXT2 VSTi.dll into it.

While not free, but not expensive either, I tend to use SnagIt for my screen shots. And you can do lots of annotations from within the SnagIt editor.

DISREGARD: Pipeline: how do you draw "arrows" (as seen above) using Infranview?

Thanks
DE

DISREGARD: I've gone back to Hypersnap, I've used this for 10 years and know all the in's and out's.

Thanks anyway

One (dumb) Q, you probably cannot use a 64 bit sequencer in this situation with either EnergyXT and or IL Minihost? - F

You have a 64bit MiniHost that will run with JBridge
IL Minihost Modular 64.dll
IL Minihost Modular (FX) 64.dll

Wow, Pipeline - this is a great Band-in-a-Box hack! I can absolutely see the practicality in doing this. I think I'm going to have to to try this out at home in my off-time.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Well, you can go out the back and thank Jeff for all his hard work getting the VST Sync integrated as this makes BB RB more versatile.

Hi,

I'm looking to add more tracks. Am I correct in thinking this tutorial will achieve this?

I've tried following the instruction but get lost very quickly. Not If someone can confirm it will give you more tracks then I'll follow it up with a new post asking for a little more clarity on the process.

Thank you,

Warren

The easiest way to achieve more tracks is probably just to use RealBand (48 tracks).

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Forum thread: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=467504

Thanks for sharing!

#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.
