Try using ReaStream https://www.reaper.fm/reaplugs/ set the identifier the same for the corresponding REAPER track, put a gain control after the ReaStream vst in BB so BB makes no sound only REAPER https://www.bluecataudio.com/Products/Product_GainSuite/ or LoudMax it's lighter than Bluecat but you may need 2 to cut the volume off, then chain up the FX in REAPER:

EDIT: if you need to run multiple ASIO https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm

Thanks again Pipeline.

Tbh, trying to get all these workarounds in BiaB/RB is way too time-consuming and frustrating--especially with the decreasingly marginal payoffs given that everything goes a lot more smoothly once I import the raw data into Reaper.

That said, please do keep it up the amazing work you do here, Pipeline!

I agree the sooner you get into REAPER the better, it just works ! Biab needs to come up to the same quality as the RealTracks/Drums.

The first time you set this up would be time consuming.
But if you really need to stay in Biab:

On each BB track in the VST window Save each track FX with Save Group.
In REAPER just save it as a default BB FX project.
You can setup
Track 1 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX
Track 2 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX
Track 3 ReaStream 1 with a different set of FX

Track 4 ReaStream 2 with a different set of FX
Track 5 ReaStream 2 with a different set of FX
Track 6 ReaStream 2 with a different set of FX
....
....
and the same for the other Reastreams
then you just solo the track that you want to use for each track send from Biab.

So you have REAPER running each time you start Biab,
after you have the Biab song generated open the VST window
and Load Group for each track:
Track 1 Reastrem 1.tgs
Track 2 Reastrem 2.tgs
Track 3 Reastrem 3.tgs
Track 4 Reastrem 4.tgs
Track 5 Reastrem 5.tgs

Thanks for this, Pipeline!

I don't have the external drive I run BiaB off of at the moment, so I can't experiment with this right now, so can you tell me how you would print/record the streamed output to the corresponding Reaper tracks?

I'm assuming you arm the tracks and select input monitoring or some such and record the BiaB playback in realtime(?).

Sorry I put that in the other post in this forum:

"Once it's all sounding good and you have the tracks how you want them just drag export each track into the corresponding REAPER track and Render."
And, you have your master track you can add the global FX to.
You can record render like below but just drag in is the best:

Gotcha, thanks again Pipeline!

Oh, and while you're here, I was wondering if you could take a quick gander at this video and tell me if there is a way to automate this process by exporting chord data from BiaB and/or RB so that the chords are displayed in Reaper (and preferably even recognized by Reaper for snap-to-key purposes, etc).

P.S. I know you have posted tips to these forums where you can reproduce so much more information within multiple layers of regions, but that seems to be overkill, and frankly too cluttered and detailed for my purposes.

Thanks in advance!

This will give you basic import Biab/RB chords to REAPER,
if you add the 2 scripts together in a new Action it will do it in one hit. So you will have the chords in the regions and as a track with text items, you can also just have the regions or just the text item track.
So just drag the exported music xml into the REAPER track and run the Action. If you need the part makers, save the bb song to Midi, in Options dialog enable Part Marker saving, now drag that midi into REAPER importing the markers. You can delete the midi tracks after you have got the info out of them.

That's in the REATRAK for REAPER, snap to scale and snap to chords.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
