Jump to new posts Re: Amplitude as a plugin in BIAB by Jim Fogle @ 12/23/21 05:37 PM

Steinburg stopped supporting VST2 development early in 2013. They removed all access to the VST2 SDK development kit in +++ May, 2018 +++ Steinburg released the first VST3 specification in 2008. However the VST3 specification remains a moving target with the current specification at V3.7.4. On a side note the V3.7 specification includes full support for MIDI 2.0. V3.7 was released in 2020 about the same time as MIDI 2.0. My guess is there are some big changes regarding what a VST plugin

Hello: I recently purchased, & having difficulties getting BIAB 2021 (UltraPAK+ upgrade) & RealBand MIDI to work properly/sound decent. BIAB 12 came with Virtual Sound Canvas, which seemed to sound great, but I haven't been able to get BIAB 2021 to sound anywhere near as good using Coyote WT or Sforzando... I'm sure it's user error. First - RealBand, I get an error msg. when I try to use Sforzando: "Your copy of PG Music Inc Band-in-a-Box Sounds is not activated...". So, ho

Well, that's not ideal. Use that something that PG Music is likely to change in a future update? What if I use a style that incorporate Real Tracks *and* MIDI tracks?

One feature you can use is in the styles picker and search for the title of a well known song which will then give you BIAB style suggestions. Also, if you find a style you like, you can save it to a list of Favorites so you can quickly find it again without having to memorize. Others can comment on importing audio files.

This should be fixed in build 914. This build is still in pre-release testing, however if you would like you can download it from: https://dl11.pgmusic.com/support/patch/bb2022_win_update_build914.exe You can always install the previous patch if you run into any new problem.

<< What to do? >> Choose another style that's a RealStyle rather than a Midi Style or a Midi style rather than a RealStyle. Rockaah.sty is a RealStyle and Thrdwrld.sty is a Midi style. It must be one or the other to do what you're attempting. Charlie

It will be fun seeing versions of all that new old stuff turning up in newly legitimate "showcase" covers. I have posted versions of a number of Charles Ives compositions, and have to admit I did not look too deeply into the rights issue. My understanding at this point is that Ives is already PD in the United States but a slew of publishers still hold worldwide rights until 2024. In any case, I like this a lot: “Charles Ives refused to copyright his music, insisting that anyone be
