Thought I'd share this find with all the wonderful folks here. :-)

The incredible sounds you can download here http://virtualplaying.com/virtual-playing-orchestra/ contain a wealth of exquisitely sampled instruments that sound infinitely better than those that come with the free Sforzando player and contain dozens more instruments.

Perhaps the best part yet is that they come in .SFZ format and can be dropped right into the player you already have!
After you download, unzip the file, open each directory (e.g. strings, woodwinds, etc.) select the files with .sfz extensions, and drag-drop them as shown in the screenshot.

P.S. If you get an error message (I forget what it says, make sure that none of the files selected to drop into Sforzando have non-supported extensions).

After this is done, in order to access the sounds choose the newly added "user" option which will appear in the tab below the BiaB and Tablewarp. (see additional screenshot)

Enjoy!

I downloaded them and put them on the hard drive where I keep my samples.

Not sure I understand the "update batch" (the smaller download) or what to do with it or where to place these files, since it is not a program, it is a batch of files. Do they mean you replace files in folder 1 with the files in folder 2 (SFZ files in folder 2 don't work in and of themselves.)

BUT, I used some of the string files in folder 1, version 2 or whatever, and they sound nice.

I just did an import from Sforzando menu and selected the folder where the SFZ files or whatever they are called are kept.

The cellos for example sound rich and full and I can easily this this as a complement to my other libraries when I am looking for that certain sound.

Thanks!

All you have to do is unpack the files from the 2.3-Patch directly into the same directory and confirm overwriting existing files with the same name.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
