I want to do more older style country on Power Tracks Pro. Can anyone suggest a good steel pedal guitar Vsti?

Suggestion to the powers that be: On Power Tracks Pro, I use the notation window almost exclusively for all my tracks. Would be it possible to increase the size of the space where the cursor is located? Or perhaps just make it adjustable? Trying to move the cursor with my mouse is tough and every so often I accidentally add a super-high note as I miss the cursor space.

Thanks y'all!

Hi Leeky,

Do you have a full version of Kontakt? If so you may like +++ Pedal Steel +++ by Impact Sound Works.

Another Kontakt instrument is +++ Slide Lap Steel +++ by Orange Tree Samples.

The oldest Kontakt steel instrument is +++ Pedal Steel +++ by Wavelore.

Many people like +++ The Steel +++ by Indigenous for its ease of use. It also requires Kontakt. As the newest VSTi of the bunch the introductory price is $49 US.

Of the three above I'm most impressed with the last link.

Regarding your suggestion, you may want to post the suggestion in the +++ PowerTrack Pro Wishlist +++ forum section so the suggestion will receive the most views.

If you get "The Steel" by Indiginus, it comes with a few sample MIDI files that you can analyze to see how best to get the "right" sound using the various key switches and velocity triggers. It's not a plug and play on a simply notated MIDI track, but by properly using keyswitches and velocity triggers, you can get some pretty cool articulations. There is a demonstration video on the Indiginus site, but yes it requires the full version of Kontakt.

Hi Jim and John,

Thank you for your suggestions. I don't have Kontakt or even know what that is, so I'll take a look.

Cheers.

Leeky -

Buying Native Instruments Kontakt for the first time is not cheap, unfortunately, at $399. But, Native Instruments does have sales occasionally and you can save. Also, if you buy one of their lower priced Kontakt libraries (which can use the Kontakt Player), I have usually received an offer to upgrade to the full Kontakt for a lot less. But that is also playing a waiting game, of sorts.

For example, I waited and ended up getting an offer to upgrade my copy of Komplete 11 Ultimate to Komplete 12 Ultimate (Collector's Edition) for $299.50 (normally $599.00 to upgrade). Big savings there.

Kontakt is just a VSTi (an instrument interface that loads as a VST and allows you to load up multiple Kontakt-enabled audio libraries to play in your DAW).

There are Kontakt audio libraries out there that don't require the full Kontakt and work just fine in the Kontakt Player (which is free). So, while it doesn't help with the problem at hand, you should go ahead and download the Kontakt Player (since it's free), and then go out and look for free Kontakt libraries that are compatible with the player. That will give you a good idea and some experience regarding what Kontakt can do for you. Lots of folks on the forum here can help you with it, as well. Kontakt is a good tool to have in your audio arsenal.

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
