Here's a guide for energyXT 2.6
This will allow you to generate up 7 MultiRiffs in BB64 (613 or higher) and BB32 2017 UP, it will play them in sync to your other BB tracks allowing you to choose the best riff/section.
To use energyXT2.6 in BB64/32 you need JBridge

To use in BB64, in the Mixer select the Plugins Tab then click the Audio+ bottom right of the Mixer, click [None] at the top click Plugin drop down, at the bottom select 'Add VST Plugin...' > energyXT2 VST.dll (this is an Effects plugin, energyXT2 VSTi.dll is an instrument plugin for a midi track)
in your JBridge settings (at the bottom of the VST window that will come up when using a 32bit VST) set the plugin to open in new GUI then unload the VST, now load it back in.

To use in BB32 2017 Up you will also need http://jstuff.wordpress.com/pluginflipflop/
in the Mixer select the Plugins Tab then click the Audio+ bottom right of the Mixer, click [None] at the top click Plugin drop down, at the bottom select 'Add VST Plugin...' > 32bit PluginFlipFlopFX.dll
click 'Load new' > energyXT2 VST.dll (this is an Effects plugin, the energyXT2 VSTi.dll is an instrument plugin for a midi track that can be used with PluginFlipFlopSynth.dll)

You can read all these instructs or just watch the video below.
*Make sure the energyXT Play button is on before playing BB !
The quickest way to get the BB song tracks into energyXT before multiriffing
is Audio > Export Song as Audio file > (also check One File Per Track)
now drag all the tracks (except master mix) from the folder that pops up into energyXT
(make sure you hit the rewind button first and drag them hard to the left,
you can also drag Midi or RealCharts in)
After you have the song tracks out into the energyXT click track 1 and select the instrument you want to MultiRiff,
type the RT number down in the filter now in the top left of the Picker select the next track and set it to the same RT, do the same for all 7,
'Close' the Picker
select bar 1 > F5 set all tracks except Audio to 'Mute'
select the bar where you want the MultiRiff to start F5 set all tracks except Audio to 'Back to Normal',
select the bar where you want the MultiRiff to end F5 set all tracks except Audio to 'Mute'.
You simply highlight the bars you want to preview with the riff starting a bit before the riff and ending just after then make sure the Play button is on in energyXT and press F10 in BB to loop the selected section of bars, using right click to solo the Audio track and Riff 1 then un-solo Riff 1 and solo Riff 2 and so on.
If there is a couple of riffs you like but want more just freeze those tracks and hit the >+ to re-generate the others.

You can change the VST color to Light in the energyXT settings.

Absolutely brilliant!

I'm already wondering what other possibilities can be opened up with this energyXT 2.6 VST thingy grin

Follow question: would I be able to host this via Minihost Modular (which can mix up MIDI and Audio FX plugins in the chain) and therefor not have to download and use pluginflip?

Unless I'm misunderstanding, the point of pluginflip is simply to get a MIDI plugin working on an audio track in BiaB--which I can do already w. minihost. Am I on the right track here?

Thanks!

You only need FlipFlop or MiniHost for the 32 bit version of Biab.

I see,

Welp, I purchased Jbridge back in 2015 (I think) and never had a pressing use for it--until now!

It's actually some of the automation functions I saw in some 5-6 year old videos on YT that REALLY has me fired!

I won't have time to look into it until later in the day, but I sense you would be able to use it to write automation for all my plugin parameters like in Reaper but in BiaB!

To use energyXTvst in Biab64 inside MiniHost you need to create a 64 bridge file of energyXT using jBridger.exe
flipflop is free for use with jbridge in the 32bit Biab
