#505875 - 12/02/18 08:50 AM [UserTracks (and other add-ons)] Biab Chord Picker Tool (Download) 2.2 32/64bit + Ealier & BiabVST Versions [Re: Pipeline]

BiabVST Chord Picker Tool version

This is set for Reaper but can be changed see WindowAHK-ID below.
If it works ok I can make a drop down for DAW choice.
It has not got as many editing functions as the Biab Chord Picker Tool but if they add chord edit to the VST it can be done.
You can change the Tempo with decimal point accuracy at any bar to follow the DAW tempo map with a button,
you can change Time Signature to 4/4 or 3/4 at any bar with a button.

Any problems right click > Run As Administrator

There is a bug in the current vst that will only add a shot hold rest push on a major chord.

AHK Script only
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper.ahk.zip

32bit exe
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper x86.zip

64bit exe
BiabVST Chord Picker Reaper x64.zip

WindowAHK-ID finds the window ID of your DAW eg. ahk_exe reaper.exe
Run it and select the DAW window, if you post your DAW ID I will make a script for it.
To diy just replace all instances of ahk_exe reaper.exe with your ID in the script.

AHK Script only
WindowAHK-ID.ahk.zip

32bit exe
WindowAHK-ID x86.zip

64bit exe
WindowAHK-ID x64.zip

Pipeline,

I'm not understanding how to use your latest tool, Window AHK.

1) Download WindowAHK-ID x64.zip to my desktop.
2) Extract to WindowAHK-ID x64.exe folder on my desktop.
3) Open the folder.
4) Find WindowAHK-ID x64.exe
5) Double click on WindowAHK-ID x64.exe and click through "unknown publisher" security warning.
6) Program window opens.
7) Now what?

7) Copy the window ID

This will tell AHK what window to send the keystrokes to.
If post that ID I will create a script and exe for that DAW.
Or just open the script in a text editor and replace all ahk_exe reaper.exe with your ID

Here's the Compiler, it will be in the AutoHotKey install folder, just select the script.ahk or drag it in and set destination script x64.exe or script x86.exe, choose either 32 Unicode or 64 Unicode and add an icon if you like, click Convert. If you want to create an installer Inno Setup

Sent To: Bandlab Support

Quote:
"give all keystrokes to plug-in" is not working correctly.
If the window is active by clicking on the top of the vst window where the title is this makes the window Active and all keystrokes need to be sent to the vst.
At the moment you need to click on something inside the window for it to send this is not correct, in other DAW you only need to make the window Active without clicking on something inside the window.
In the attached gif when I activate the vst window on the left in Reaper it sends the keystrokes
when I activate the window on the right in BandLab AND set it to receive keystrokes it don't.
See I type the chord in on the left and it works but I type on the right and it don't.


Anyone else can send them one also if they like, just click Support in the Help Menu.

Hi Pipeline,

Edit: Ignore below, I managed to get it to work, but now I have a different problem, every time I enter a chord, the chord-picker minimizes to the tray. I can somewhat get it to work when I set BiaB and Chord picker to occupy the left and right sides of the screen, but then most of the options to the left of CP (such as the pushes and shots) are inaccessible. I realize this may be because I am on a laptop, and there is minimal "moniter real estate" but is there some way to get this working on a laptop nonetheless?



So much as I am ashamed to admit this, I've held off on installing this to date because I found all the lines of computer code a little bit intimidating, and told myself that I could get by with BiaB's built in "chord theory" function...which was one of my favorite upgrades of 2018 (or was it 2017?)

In any event, I just ran the installer (not the VST version) and the program launched in standalone, and I can't figure out how to get it to communicate with BiaB. Other than seeing the BiaB screen "blink" (disappear and reappear for a second) every time I try to enter a command, nothing else happens in the chordsheet regardless of what I do.

Please help!

Thanks in advance :-)

Deacon

Another issue:

When I tried to utilize the "set bass" option (for which I had to minimize the BiaB screen because laptop) which I'm assuming should have launched the RT picker dialogue in BiaB, it instead launched an additional instance of BiaB with a clean chord-sheet.

Is this normal?

Thanks again!

Thanks Pipeline,

Obviously I have much to explore here, and I suspect I will have a great amount of fun doing it. :-)

OK, I see another problem I have now is that I simply cannot get the bottom row of options, where the preview chord and "always on top" options reside, to display at all--even if I have the CP tool on full screen.

Again, I'm afraid this has to with me being on a laptop (I prefer running BiaB in my desktop, but the thing is that one third of the week I live and work in an entirely different city from my main residence where my desktop is, so sorry for being such a PITA with this...I really appreciate all the effort you put into this!)

If you can up the resolution to 1600x900 instead of 1280x768 on your Ideapad ?

I'm afraid not :-( Maybe a lower resolution but one of the aspect ratios listed below would work?

Also, while you're here, (and I suspect this may be related) I recently connected an additional monitor to my laptop using an HDMI cable so I could have a dual monitor display, and set the external monitor as my primary in Windows' settings and have been having a plethora of issues with resizing/minimizing/always on top windows, not just for BiaB/RB but in Reaper as well. Is there any way I can make my laptop "forget" about the second display or whatever so that it behaves like it did before I ever connected it?

Finally, with respect to ADSR Sample Manager: I installed the program on my C hardrive, but placed the majority of my loops on the external drive (F) because I have more space there. I don't want ASDR to crash if I boot it up when my F drive is not connected if, say, I want to use it in Reaper. Is this something I need to be concerned about? Can I simply run it from C and add a library from F such that it operates as paths do for plugins like in Reaper or Minihost?

Btw, sorry for bombarding you with all these questions. I would generally simply experiment, but I've had issues in the past where if you set a path, and it's no longer there on next bootup, you can have ugly crashes or inconsistencies that can persist till kingdom come :-(

Thanks again!

You should be able to go to the screen resolution settings click on the external monitor 2 and remove it, you may have to plug it in first, remove so you just have 1 set as primary monitor.
You may have to go into Ati/AMD or NVidia settings.

I have ADSR on C: and ACID Loops on D:\ added to the ADSR Library, sometimes it has to wake the D: up from sleep that will delay at first but once spinning you should be right.

Thanks very much Pipeline, this seems like a very useful tool!

I'm finding a small problem here, I can't set the program to work with any specific BIAB version, as you can see here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qqGHbqnUvo9byJe8RCQz4xOIOBYRrgXi/view?usp=sharing

Also, Set Chord Rest/Shots/Hold/Push...buttons are not working on my system, after clicking those buttons nothing happens. I don't know if that could be a related problem.

You can run it as administrator as it may not be writing the settings.ini
In the install folder C:\Program Files\Biab Chord Picker Tool
settings.ini
[BiabVersionSet]
key=2016_later

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.
