Hey there Al-David, great work on this! This is beautiful and a solid key signature choice too. Excellent guitar riffs and I found the organ really helps piece it all together. Looking forward to hear more!

Nice work on this F.M.M! That guitar is very crunchy and progresses through the piece nicely. Well done!

Last time I check RB wouldn't split a RealDrum or UserTrack drum that is multichannel wav , and it wouldn't open ogg or mogg. If it could split the wav in the engine like it does when you drag or open a multichannel wav in RB that would be a start, and the above for BB.

Further.. RealBand has no problem splitting the multichannel to separate tracks but with Biab a multichannel mixer can be used due to the track limit.

When they recorded the REAL HUMAN drummer in the studio for the Real Drums it was multi miced BUT mixed to stereo. *.ogg files suck big time If you know a Human Drummer you can use the REAL TRACKS generator and mic your own kit with compressors and gates etc. and make your own. That's what I did for some. You clearly don't totally understand Real Band after reading the rest of the posts.

I finished an album of 8 songs in RB a few months ago. Some all audio, some audio and midi and one all midi. Zero crashes. Zero. For midi I used SampleTank 3. When I picked it up about 18 months ago it simply loaded right up. Zero issues. These songs all have vocals. I created several vocal comp tracks and edited the crap out of them. Zero crashes. Do you guys who can't seem to get RB to work see a pattern here? I hate to be blunt but somebody can't read proper English. Seriously. T

https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=460110#Post460110 This will give you basic import Biab/RB chords to REAPER, if you add the 2 scripts together in a new Action it will do it in one hit. So you will have the chords in the regions and as a track with text items, you can also just have the regions or just the text item track. So just drag the exported music xml into the REAPER track and run the Action. If you need the part makers, save the bb song to Midi, in Op

2bsolo Your experience is same as mine. I worked with RB for a longtime and I still do, but for me it is get in and get out as soon as possible. Reaper on the other hand is a joy to work in. Primarily given that on my system it is and has been for years Rock-Solid. Can count on one hand the number of times it has crushed over these years. Add to that the Reaper Forum and many videos to view when you what to learn a new feature. And with Reaper there is always something new with constant upg
