The same gentleman that created jBridge, a utility program that allows 32 bit VSTs to work in 64 bit DAWs or 64 bit VSTs to work in 32 bit programs like Band-in-a-Box and RealBand, also has some interesting MIDI apps bundled together into compressed zip files.

One zip file is for +++ 32 bit hosts +++ while the second zip file is for +++ 64 bit hosts +++

One app assigns notes to channels for making brass section chords, another switches channel based on velocity. They are free and you might find something you can use.

Yep, I found those several years ago exploring J's site. And free is my favorite price.

Thanks. Reminds me of the old CAL scripts in SONAR.

Some other useful midi utilities as VST plugins:

https://www.kvraudio.com/product/midi_tools_by_smart_electronix

https://www.thepiz.org/plugins/?p=pizmidi

There's another set of tools that I used to use way back in the day, but have had DAW tools available that filled in the gaps, but they were all kinds of re-mapping tools for midi, not unlike the piz midi tools above.

These are fun to play with - particularly some of them that convert audio levels to midi CC information.

BTW the link to J's site, rather than directly to the downloads is here:

https://jstuff.wordpress.com/js-midi-tools/

Also, don't look past PG's midi manipulators - some of the best out there. If I recall correctly, PowerTracks ProAudio had a sort of Midi 'compressor' for velocity information. It would leave the midi velocity untouched below a certain threshold, then ratio-multiply the velocity above the threshold.

Those midi filters in PTPA were something I missed when I migrated away from PTPA about 10-15 years ago, and had to use some of these add-on tools to gain the features in the DAW I migrated to.

Tobybear used to have a huge collection of midi tools, but it seems you can't preview them now without downloading a zip file.

One that I've found useful for the rather unimpressive velocity mapping from my Casio XW-P1, is this velocity re-mapper:

Thanx Rockstar_Not. This, https://www.thepiz.org/plugins/?p=pizmidi, will replace many of the cal scrips that I miss after changing from Sonar To Studio One.

I wonder if Sonar falling off will encourage "Frank" to think about scripting Frank's MIDI Plugins for at least one other DAW besides just Sonar and Cubase or re-work and generisize that plugin?

Mario, I was hoping to find a MIDI humanizer plugin, for subtle adjustments to MIDI parts to make them seem like people played the part. I haven't seen one yet in the lists given.

I have not used it but Mixcraft has a BUILT IN humanizer - just right click and select MIDI Editing

Tobybear had a humanisator plug-in which would soften stilted midi. I think that one is still live and active.

Thanks, Bob. I’ll look.

Larry, it was harder to find than I thought, but it’s easy yet comprehensive. Thanks again.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

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
