Hi, just wanted to post this link to an acoustic drum plugin from Germany named Drumica. Pretty good for a free VST, very good mixer and control of the kit that rivals a pay drum VST. Only draw back is that all the instructions and everything is in German language, but the registration and all that is pretty much standard. I speak no German and did it so it must not be very difficult.

Thanks again Mike smile
Works in RB good:
Load DrumMic'a! V1_0 en.nki in Kontakt or Free Kontakt Player Uncheck Ext Sync and set tempo,
set midi in to midi ch or omni (DrumMicA comes with the Free Kontakt Player if you don't have Kontakt)
Set Snapping in RB
Double click Beats to preview in player then drag from player to RB/DAW

You can add your own Beats to the DrumMicA Beats Library "Midi Files" folder

You can use this NAudio_MIDI_File_Converter.zip to convert any Midi Type 0 to Type 1 (Type 0 drag in crashes RB)
and can use http://midifilemapper.codeplex.com/ to remap to GM if need be, before adding to the DrumMicA Beats Library folder.

Hey Mike, where are you seeing the German instructions?

I was able to choose "English" version from the plugin launch on the Kontakt player that comes with it.

EN is English one.

Steve, I was referring to the installation bit, unless I missed something (which is not rare) Once it is installed yes, I guess you pick whichever. Thanks SR for all the detailed instructions, very good indeed.

I have that one for quite some time, also triggered by an information on this forum -- I believe.

The download and registration pages are on the German site, while after registration the software has also English as a language option.

(I just looked and didn't find the download on the English pages.)

I downloaded Drummica and it sounds pretty good. Is there a way to save the sequence with Drummica and its settings on a song with Powertracks.
When I use MT Power Drummer I just select file / save and it brings up the sequence with MT Power Drummer and the settings for that song.
When I do that with Drummica it does not work. Any ideas?

Is this what you tried ?

1. PRESETS
DrumMic’a! features 30 factory presets at time of delivery, that can be
switched by using the arrow buttuns beside the display. Parameter changes
of a user preset are indicated by the green light above the display. By
using the LOAD / SAVE dialogue you can also save your own settings as
user presets or load others externally.

What I have is many song sequences on Powertracks with established midi drum tracks. I just want to use the Drummica sounds.
I open an song, right click on the track with the midi drums and select: "specific vsti / dxi synth for midi track"
Then, select Drummica. After that I play the song with drummica and adjust the levels.
Now, I would like to save the song in powertracks so it will play with drummica for the future.
I have tried to 'save as' in Powertracks: song name w/drummica. When I call it up it still has the old drum settings.
Any ideas?

Are you saving your song as a MIDI file or a Power Tracks SEQ file?

The SEQ file is the file format used by PowerTracks (and RealBand) to captures all the track related information for the song you are working on. A MIDI file doesn't know anything about softsynths and effects; it only knows about the notes used, tempo, note start/stop times, their velocities, their assigned channels, assigned instrument names (not what is used to play them), and lyrics - well a few more things, but nothing related to tracks and effects. For that, you need the SEQ file. That's why every DAW uses has its own proprietary file format to be able to capture all the other track-related information. Additionally, the SEQ file can save information about a mix of audio and MIDI data.

Hmmmm, maybe one day we'll have a MusicXML-type format for DAW's.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
