Jump to new posts Re: Update: "Temporal Glitch" by DaveBrooksMusic @ 11/15/18 10:46 AM

Hi Will; Unfortunately, I've never been able to figure out the "Real Strings" to my satisfaction. I have totally no control over them. Therefore, I was forced to purchase a MIDI keyboard and use the "Plogue Sforzando" plugin (supplied by BIAB) to get somewhere close to how I wanted my strings to sound...but a lot of work and experimentations after that! If you currently don't have a MIDI KB, you're going to have to get one if you plan on following this path. May I sugges

That's a good point. When you go to the Melody menu as I detailed, you also see these first two keyboard shortcuts. Same for the Soloist menu.

Using ReaStream Load Reastream vst into Biab on the first track set the identifier 1 (each track different 1,2,3,4 etc..) and set it to Send > *local broadcast set the identifier the same for the corresponding REAPER track and set it to Receive, put a gain control or 2 after the ReaStream vst in BB so BB makes no sound only REAPER or LoudMax it's lighter than Bluecat but you may need 2 to cut the volum

Brilliant Bossa! That very distinctive piano tone is just pure gold in your hands. Seriously, you don't need no fancy singing when you can construct pieces like this.

Not sure if anyone (including the submitter) picked up on the "You won't see me" allusion in the main chord progression there... accidental or clever? Either way, it fits very well into what follows

Sweet & melodic, with a touch of melancholy - just pure bliss to the ear! p.s. I actually feel that for some music it helps more than hurts not understanding the words (if that makes any sense), this being a prime example right here.

Those tonal clashes between the clarinet and (a very similar sounding) accordion when the notes go really close together but never quite meet, keeps your ear on the edge for sure. Brilliant!

The first time you set this up would be time consuming. But if you really need to stay in Biab: On each BB track in the VST window Save each track FX with Save Group. In REAPER just save it as a default BB FX project. You can setup Track 1 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX Track 2 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX Track 3 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX Track 4 ReaStream 2 with a different set of FX Track 5 ReaStream 2 with a different set of FX Track 6 ReaStream 2 with a dif

Hi Mike, Right, that number sounds about right, as the "UltraPAK" total does include the Xtra Styles. It's very easy for you to check though, click on the Other button near the Filter String box, go to "Styles that are Found/Not Found", and choose "Show Only N/A (not found) Styles". Then just see if there are any that aren't marked "Xtra PAK" in the Set column. Thanks Kent PG Music
