RB loads 32bit Vst/VSTi just fine. WHY are you using minihost. RB loads 64bit VST/VSTi fine with JBridge.
RB will soon be 64bit.
Eddie I've known you for a long time. Stop the nasty attitude.

Like silvertones, I've had very few plugins that didn't play nice with RB (taking advantage of JBridge when needed).

Granted, you are limited to 4 FX per track in RB, but that can be doubled if you use one of the 8 AUX Send options in the path. And tripled with some clever subgroup usage.

Not intuitive, but possible, and for many users 4 FX is enough.
For me, sometimes it isn't, which is why I figured out the RB tricks (routing options) above.

methodman,

When you're using Minihost, or flipflop, more than one time in a track (insert 1, insert 2, insert 3, etc.) program each instance of the utility program to a different port.

When all the inserts are assigned the same port, then none work because they don't know which one is supposed to follow the command.

There is no problem loading VST''s in RB, you just have to follow the instructions. These threads are usually by noobies and I get it, this can be confusing but the info is all there in the Help files or failing that this forum. As for the VST window itself, yes having that wasted space at the top is annoying and it's been in the Wishlist forever. BUT have you noticed the vertical scroll bar on the right hand side? Grab that, scroll it down and you can see your entire VST window.

I don't see a great need for having to load different third party programs either but I can see them being useful. It seems like a lot of these issues with not seeing everything is based on the size of the monitor you're using and screen resolution. If all this is done on a laptop or a 20" monitor then with a small screen like that stuff can be hard to read for older folks and these forums are pretty much all older guys. That's why I use a 60" 4K HDTV as my monitor. Easy to see everything on a big screen like that and the standard RB VST window is no problem for me. I mostly use Sampletank 3 and Jamstix and both have large complex plugin windows. I scroll it down and see everything in there clearly.

If I remember correctly, this is known issue on screen resolutions of 1440 or less.
As mentioned, if that is indeed the situation, a larger screen resolution should resolve it (a standard 1920 X 1080 TV resolution should work, regardless if it is 22" or 60").

Your system may have a higher setting for your current display monitor, or it may not.
Right-click a blank area on your desktop and check Screen Resolution.

Another thing to check (if your resolution is above 1440) is if you have any special settings in the Control Panel resolution area, like having text magnified to 150%, or the whole screen zoomed.

Just a couple ideas and things to check/test.

Yes but if I had 1920 on a 20" screen no way can i read that without 2X magnifier reading glasses. Thats my point of using a 4K HDTV. It depends on what you're doing though. My office workstation has two 23" monitor's at 1920, I'm sitting upright with my face about 30 inches away, it's ok with my prescription readers. But biab, plugins, or a DAW have way more complex displays than my tax program or using office email does. Plus if you're recording yourself you can't be that close. This is what i have to do anyway, YMMV.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
