I was having trouble opening/using a RB file recently (Error message: "Not enough memory to map soundfont").
In the ports dropdown, I noticed I had about six instances of SampleTank (I presume this was from trying different instruments for various tracks).
I'm guessing this is the cause of my "Not enough memory to map soundfont" problems.
But how do I remove these SampleTank instances from the slots?
Similarly, I've noticed in other RB files where I have rendered Kontakt midi tracks to Wav files, a black Kontakt screen flashes up (and disappears) when I open the files. Does this mean Kontakt is still using up memory in these files that have only Wav tracks? If so, how do I fix this?
Please help.
Mike

To remove synths from ports, just right click the track, go to Ports and change the synth selection to None (or default DXi).

I don't know about the black Kontakt screen.

Hi Rharv, thanks for responding but after I click the track and select ports I can see all the ports and their assigned synths but I still can't see an an option to select "none".

In that list click on the desired Port, then it's in the top drop down of the resulting window (from memory).

Or maybe, if that Track is assigned to that Port/Synth already
try clicking Edit VSTi/DXi
Then in the resulting dropdown change it from whatever it is to None.

Thanks rharv. Your second suggestion did the trick. Cheers, Mike

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
