I am currently using real band as my daw but the parametric eq is impossible to use. Makes no logical sense to me. Anyway, I have been trying to download reaper's ReaEq but when I download it I cannot find the exe file to install it. The other plugins I have installed usually pop up with the install wizard. Any suggestions?
Also just discovered the download option on the reaper website but my Norton antivirus program blocks it as a malicious download.

I would get rid of Norton's, that is a virus itself ! takes control of your PC and won't let you do anything LOL, when it runs out you can get a Free AV like Avira or Avast.
ReEQ won't work in RB, have a look here http://www.vst4free.com/index.php?plug-ins=EQ&l=5 download the ***.dll *32bit vst and copy it to your VST folder C:\Program Files (x86)\VSTplugins or wherever you have it (BB & RB can only use 32bit VSTs) click on the track FX button > None > Add VST Plugin.

Try Programs(86)/Steinberg/Vstplugins. That is where I find mine after I download a plugin. Otherwise I get the same error message you get. By the way I tried your link and got the same malicious site warning from Norton. It is hard not to trust. It has saved me on a few occasions.

Finally found it and downloaded the software on a safe site. I did have to go to programs(86)/steinberg/vstplugins to find it as I stated above and it does work with real band. I am confused with certain terminology.
There is a show phase option. Not sure why I need it.

There are a number of other options. Low and high shelf, low and high pass. Not sure what the difference is. I do understand the high and low pass filters.

All pass-Not sure why I would need this.

Band, band pass, Band (alt), and band (alt2) I assume the alt and alt2 is a variation of the original band but not sure how that differs from bandpass.

Notch-I assume is for specific problem frequencies. No help button available. Need to find out where I can get the specifics on each.
Thanks for your help,
Rich

You can have a look on www.youtube.com but Norton may very well block it as a Dangerous site !!

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
