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.

In the install folder C:\Program Files\Biab Chord Picker Tool
settings.ini

Thanks!

Mr Pipeline ,

could you please help Mr. Magoo by perhaps providing an actual download of the Mac version of the Free Biab & BiabVST Chord Picker Tool (look at the bottom of the page for the latest version.) Poor Mr. Magoo looked and looked but no luck . On the other hand if it is too much trouble then he is OK with that .

( yes, that what happens as you get older ) blush

Thanks .

Have a look here https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=475833#Post475833 try the Java GUI and see if it works for you on the Mac as the tool can be created with java as there is no AutoHotKey app for Mac that will also create a GUI, unless you know of one ?
You can also request PG create a similar tool for users on both Win & Mac.

Biab Plugin Chord Picker Tool Generic v1.1 for Most DAWs
This should work with most DAWs.

The 2 DAWs I found so far that don't send the keystrokes to the Biab Plugin window are BandLab and Cubase, so to fix this issue use
PluginFlipFlop if you already have JBridge.
Just load PluginFlipFlop (instrument of FX) then load the Biab Plugin (instrument of FX) into it.
Using PluginFlipFlop in Cubase will keep the VST window on top always.
Let me know what works and what don't.
(the transport buttons up the top are not working)
(the ^ ^^ Pushes still need implementing in the Plugin)
EDIT: Updated 1.1 > 1.2

Yea same deal as BandLab and Cubase.
Load PluginFlipFlop (FX or instrument) then load BBvst (FX or instrument) into it.
If the BiabVst don't stay on top use an Always On Top app like the one in the link Always On Top 1.3
Joao from JBridge is going to make it stay on top.

In Windows 10 if you are running Band in a Box as Administrator you will need to run the Chord Picker Tool also as Administrator to have access.

To run script only .ahk install https://www.autohotkey.com/ and set AutoHotKey.exe to Run As Administrator
