I originally posted this on the BIAB forum b/c I thought I was having the problem on both BIAB and RB platforms, but now I see it's only in RB.
When I go to select my synths, both on the MIDI devices dialog box as well as attempting to set a midi track to Coyote/Forte (I have both), these 2 don't appear as options...yet they did appear up until very recently.
I've re-installed Forte, I've rebooted both RB and Windows--no change.
I'm on the latest version of RB, and Win10.
Noel suggested that I check the MIDI device/Default DXi/VSTi Synth box, but, again, neither Coyote nor Forte appears any longer.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Have you upgraded to the latest version of RB? We're presently up to Build #5. To check which version you have, have a look under "Help | About Realband".

If you need it, the latest build can be found at the below link.

http://www.pgmusic.com/support.realband.htm

Just download it and run it manually.

Have you tried to use the synths in another music application such as a DAW? I'm wondering if something might have happened to the synths.

In the \Realband directory, there's a file called

DXiPluginList.ini

1. Close Realband.

2. Go to the Realband directory and rename that file to DXiPluginList.ini.OLD (so that it can be retrieved if needed)

3. Right-click on Realband's start-up shortcut and select "Run as administrator". This will start Realband in administrator mode. It will also force the program to read Windows registry and create a new DXiPluginList.ini file.

Does this help?

Regards,
Noel

Thanks Jim...Just installed Reaper Eval...it sees Forte and Coyote DXI's. So it's definitely a Realband problem. I'll reinstall and see if it resolves it.

Have a look at Kent's reply in the below thread. It's something else worth trying...

http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=432015


Lastly, and just checking, when you renamed DXiPluginList.ini was it definitely the one that began with DXi? The reason I ask is because there is a similar file in Realband directory that begins with DX and not DXi.

All the best with Support.

"Is there a file in your RealBand folder called "MaxPluginsToScan.txt"? If there is, please close RealBand and delete that file, then see if the DX plugins then appear.

Thanks
