The BB plugin is nowhere to be found in Logic Pro X (10.4.6), any ideas???
"Band-in-a-Box" or "PG Music" are not in the AU plugins menu when I select "open software instrument"!! I have looked in the Plugins Manager - not there either?? Carl

Hi Carl. Open Logic Pro X and select software instrument, by default mine opens Classic Electric Piano. Make sure the Inspector window is open and you should see E-Piano. Click on that and select AU Instruments at the bottom and then PG Music inc / BiaB DAW AU plugin / Stereo. And you should see the Plugin window appear. Hope that helps.

Tim.

Thanks a lot for trying for me Tim - mine doesn't open with Classic Electric Piano, in fact it opens with no instrument selected! Anyway, if I click on 'Instruments" on the instrument channel I've just opened (above the ch fader) and move down the menu to AU Instruments, there is no sign of PG Music or BiaB AU Plugin - and as I mentioned above, it's not in Plugin Manager either, so Logic clearly is not 'seeing' it.
I can still use everything else in BB 2019, listening to all the demos etc - and I can move individual tracks over from BB into Logic manually as before, just can't drag all the tracks over in one go from the Plugin. I'm sure Andrew will sort this out, cheers Tim! Carl

Do you actually see the plugin in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Component/ ?
Band-in-a-Box DAW AU Plugin.component

A reboot of your Mac may fix this.

Does GarageBand see it?

Thanks a lot Andrew for your post elsewhere - I have checked through the path you suggested: Library/Audio/Plugins/Components/Band-in-a-Box DAW AU Plugin.component - and you're right, it's not there! So when I installed BB 2019 Ultra+ Mac, the automatic installation of the Plugin failed - no wonder Logic Pro X doesn't 'see' the Plugin! Where do I go from here? Carl

Have a look in Applications/Band-in-a-Box/BBPlugin/Files
you can add that as a folder or copy the BB Plugin to your Plugins folder.

Andrew - The BB Plugin is not showing up in Logic Pro X. I checked all the paths and folders suggested by you and pipeline below, but I don't see the BIAB plugin component, and I don't see a BIAB plugins folder under Applications/BIAB

I have BIAB 2018 for Mac and Logic Pro X - is that my problem? (Note: My BIAB install was the BIAB external hard drive version but the hard drive failed this year, so I had to re-install from the digital downloads. Thanks for any guidance and help.

Tom

The BIAB VST/AU plugin was introduced in BIAB 2019, hence if you're still on BIAB 2018, you don't have it.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
