Band-in-a-Box VST and Pro Tools/AAX DAW Plugin (Windows)
Jump to new posts Re: vst plugin only open midi relate songs ? by cfcboc @ 6 minutes 12 seconds ago

I seem unable to use the VSt "File Open" command to load an existing SGU file, even very simple songs. I find a song in the BB/Songs folder using the File-Open menu openn in the VSt and it won't load, even waiting for 5 min. There a little circle of tiny bars that spins in the lower left corner of the plug-in suggesting it is working, but it never loads. I have BIAB 2020 open as well as Bandlab Cakewalk, and after a couple minutes, the BIAB Vst plug-in shows up on the BIAB window mai

This is a song we did during the early stages of the lockdown. Couldn't find details about when the song was composed so, here's the old favourite.

Hello, Welcome also. I don't normally use the Home key but it does have that exact function. The Home key will go directly to Bar 1 of the Chord Sheet. The space bar is intended to restart the transport from the current position. You mentioned once that it starts at bar 47. Is it always bar 47 on each alternate press of the home & space bar keys? Is there anything special about bar 47? E.g. does it have a repeat at that point? How many bars are in the total song (choruses x repeats)

Tangmo, I gave the whole thread a quick read through and I posted my thoughts about it. If you're looking for a debate then just keep on looking because I'm not interested in participating. My initial response is the same as it is now. The impression I got is that you came up with a chord progression and wanted other people to play over it so you could take their ideas and flesh out a melody. I couldn't possibly care less about what you do. Don't post things if you want to take issue with oth

Jump to new posts New themed branded soundcloud and youtube pages by DIOECHOOTO @ Today at 05:51 PM

Hi, everyone! I recently deleted my old soundcloud account, and relaunched not under my name but under a brand. There are less songs now because I'm sticking, somewhat loosely**, to a "botanical freedom and empowerment" theme. Coming soon (or not so soon, depending) will be songs about kava kava, ashwagandha, San Pedro, mushrooms, coca leaves, ginseng, kanna, and whatever else strikes my fancy. ** psychedelic campfire is not about a particular plant, but to me it fits the gene

Jump to new posts Re: Generating Midi Tracks by Jim Fogle @ Today at 05:37 PM

Hello Philw, Welcome to RealBand and to the forum. The error message is telling you the track has no midi data. If you hover the mouse cursor over the track icon does the pop up track information say the track is midi or audio? What is the number in the "Num Event = "? Has the midi been replaced by a RealTrack at some point? Does the track have the five pin midi or dual audio icon? What style are you using? Did you use the Generate button?

Jump to new posts Re: Static noise on bass tracks by Teunis @ Today at 04:54 PM

There are many sounds be it with bass or any instrument that are in a track. Some of these are wanted by some, less so by others. Some of these sound fine even really good when leaving all settings as recorded. However, once EQ has been applied the balance of the Note verses the (let’s say fret squeak) is altered. This can have the effect of a really loud squeak (or whatever), way louder than is natural. My point is this is often easily resolved using “Spectral Editing”. Usually th

Very cool. There is one church that I know of here in the Coachella Valley that has an awesome pipe organ. They gave me a private tour through the whole thing and showed me how they clean and maintain it and keep it tuned rolling the curls on the pipe ends. It's huge and sounds amazing. It's remarkable how they get all the different pipes/notes to be reasonably similar in volume.

Jump to new posts Re: How do I lock in a song rendering? by Tobias @ Today at 04:37 PM

Another benefit of freezing tracks is speed, time saving. Example; I can freeze all the tracks while searching for a good super midi track. This way when I regenerate it goes really fast ' cause it only regenerates the unfrozen tracks. Or I freeze all but drums until I get a usable drum track then freeze the drums and export. Also, when fishing through styles for only piano and drum Real Tracks I freeze everything else so I don't have to wait while it generates tracks I'm not going to use.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...
