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.

No, it’s just the menu name where they put it that fooled me.

Loc: Way too close to Palm Springs,...
Reapers built in Midi Humanizer works quite well for me. Once you're in the Piano Roll Editor it's accessible via VIEW in the top Tool Bar menu. It will do entire grid or only selected notes so you can go song section by song section and throw a new Random Seed at each section until you get something that minimizes further editing.

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

#TBT - The Beginning of Xtra Styles PAKs for Band-in-a-Box®

We released the much-loved Xtra Styles PAKs in August 2016! This release included 164 RealStyles for Jazz, Country, Rock-Pop, and Singer/Songwriter and worked with any Band-in-a-Box® 2016 or higher UltraPlusPAK, EverythingPAK, or Audiophile Edition!

Xtra Styles PAKs were such a hit... we couldn't stop making them! Since their introduction, we've released 3 more PAKs with a total of over 600 Xtra Styles in all!

Want to hear what other program users are doing with their Xtra Styles? Visit our Xtra STyles Contests forum to hear all the songs submitted during previous song contest we've had: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=102&page=1

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!

Support for ABC Notation Format in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

ABC notation is the simple text-based notation system used by musicians worldwide to store chords, melody, and lyrics of songs. Now with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows you can open and save songs in ABC notation format!

To save the song in ABC notation format, press the [Save As] toolbar button and choose Save as ABC notation file from the menu.
