I asked at your YT place already, so I might as well try my luck here:

Anyone have the insight on what sound source(s) have been used for the accordion audio demos in this clip?

Hi Icelander,

There are several accordions in that video, and they fall into 2 categories, MIDI Supertracks demos, and RealTracks demos. The demos at 1:20, 6:36, 6:43, & 6:51 are all MIDI Supertracks demos, and the demos at 4:41, 4:48, 4:55 & 5:09 are RealTracks demos.

In all the cases here, the MIDI Supertracks demos are using the accordion patch from the Coyote Wavetable, which is available to all Band-in-a-Box users. All of the RealTracks demos in this particular video were recorded on a Roland V-Accordion. The accordionist in all cases was world champion Cory Pesaturo. In some cases Cory used an acoustic accordion for the styles, where he thought it would be best suited to the style, and in the cases where he used the V-Accordion, picked the specific sounds appropriate to the style.

I hope that helps,
Tobin

Brilliant! cool

But, this "Coyote Wavetable" thing is a term I'm not familiar with, yet you say it's already "available to all Band-in-a-Box users"?! confused

Edit: Right, after a quick investigation I've discovered that the above statement I found so confusing comes from that annoying speech habit of PC users' signified by the (equally annoying) "PC = All" vocabulary.

Or, in short: That statement only holds true for pc users, not ALL!!!

I wonder if women find it as annoying when we say "hey, guys" meaning "all" in a group consisting of both genders wink

Hi Icelander,

Coyote is the General MIDI (GM) synth that we ship with Band-in-a-Box. During the installation, it's an option to install with Band-in-a-Box. By default it's on, so unless you specifically deselected it, it should already be installed:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2x6fuuu036jngm/Coyote_1.jpg?dl=0

If it is installed, to use it go to Options| MIDI/Audio Driver Setup, and make sure Use Vst/DXi synth is checked, and then click on the button underneath that:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/e4ncx01fx28r3q8/Coyote_2.jpg?dl=0

...and then you select it in this dialog:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9k2l11jtxhux2a0/Coyote_3.jpg?dl=0

Regarding "all" referring to Windows users and not Mac users, given that the context of the thread was a video of Band-in-a-Box 2018 for Windows Bonus 49-PAK, "all" was meant to apply to "all users to whom this video applies". smile

HI Icelander

The sound you get for the midi in Biab will depend on the midi synth you use.
The Coyote wave table is just a wrapper for the Microsoft wave table but makes it available as a dxi to use as your default synth if you like and you don’t use any other vst synth like say my Yamaha xg lite . or another.
However you may of course use an external midi module like the Ketron sd2 or similar in which case you will get whatever sounds it has.
Never the less what you hear in the demo will be as stated, if the coyote wave table was the source during the recording as they say, you are therefore listening to the coyote wave table accordions,
Mike

Not that I have read...it has it's own sounds and they are WAY better than the MS one (which is ancient Roland sounds).

I wish I could get the Sampletank2 OMNI GM running, but I have never been able to get it loaded as a GM set.....

Since the 49-PAK is offered as an optional "upsell" during our Band-in-a-Box 2018 release, you will have an option to add this to your Band-in-a-Box order within the shopping cart.

Already have Band-in-a-Box 2018 and now you want to add the 49-PAK to your collection? Just add any Band-in-a-Box for Windows package to your cart, add the 49-PAK, then remove the Band-in-a-Box package. Of course you can also give us a call directly: http://www.pgmusic.com/contact.htm

jcxpro40,

Band-in-a-Box for Windows ships with Coyote WT which, as Mike said, is a DXI wrapper for the wavetable sounds inherit in the Windows operating systems.

What you have likely read about is Coyote Forte. Coyote Forte includes wavetable sounds. +++ HERE +++ is an external link to Coyote Forte while +++ HERE +++ is PG Music's sales link.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
