Band-in-a-Box for Windows VST DAW Plugin Info

This forum is for discussions about the DAW plugin included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows.

We have a Band-in-a-Box® DAW Plugin support page along with some quickstart tutorials for specific DAWs:
https://www.pgmusic.com/bbplugin

The Band-in-a-Box Plugin is separate from the main Band-in-a-Box® desktop program (bbw64.exe) and works directly inside your DAW (Cakewalk, Pro Tools, Reaper, Cubase, Ableton, PreSonus, etc.). The Plugin uses the content (RealTracks, Styles, etc.) present in your normal Band-in-a-Box (bb) folder to generate audio or MIDI tracks that you can then drag/drop from the Plugin into your DAW.

There are several types of plugin files included: VST/VST2, VST3, VST FX, and AAX. The plugin types share the same features. You should normally use the VST3 type if your DAW supports it, but there are some exceptions (for example, Pro Tools has it's own AAX plugin format, and some older programs only support VST2).

Please post a new thread for each topic/question.
