A tips: eSoundz (www.esoundz.com) sells the OmniSynth SampleTank add-on for $5 today, which is an absolute steal.

For those of you not familiar with OmniSynth: It is a GM-compatible sound library for SampleTank, with far superior sounds than e.g. Coyote. The real benefit is that it responds to standard MIDI GM patch changes, which means you can use it with BiaB songs with MIDI tracks, without having to tweak the MIDI patches for each song. I've been using it for many years, it's really neat.

eerrr! I have downloaded the Omnisynth (thanks for the tip..) but do not find any .dll file (?). I find omnisynth all right with all its instruments in Sample Tank2,but cannot use it as a midisynth in BiaB like I do for Coyote (for this you need the dll file).
Do I miss something?

There won't be a separate VSTi DLL for Omnisynth, as it is just an instrument designed to be run with SampleTank. You need to load the Sampletank DLL and select the OmniSynth as your library to use. There are several threads on the forum regarding using OmniSynth as your GM sound source.

Just bought the whole pack virtually. At five bucks a pop you can't go wrong. The vocal pack is great, and the pianos and strings are synths are very useable. This was a great find. Thanks. I own every piece of high end software known to man and these sounds are no slouch. For RT users, the pianos will be great for writing even if you later export to another DAW and use another library because I found the sounds load really fast and there is almost zero latency when you play. (If that.)

As a matter of fact Real Band is my go to software for recording audio and piano midi. I render and import into more expensive DAWS for mixing but you can't beat Real Band for recording. It makes a great audio track, rarely clips, and has almost no latency problems I have experienced. Again for recording audio (and piano midi) Real Band is my FIRST choice not my last.

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.
