I asked in the Facebook PG Music page yesterday this; "
‎Trygve Leo Larsen‎ to Band-in-a-Box by PG Music
Yesterday at 8:00 AM ·
Hi there ! Just want to make sure BiaB 2020 support VST 3 ? I am about to buy Reason 11, for the VST version. Hoping it can be used as the default VSTi in BiaB. Would it work?"
And got this answer; "Band-in-a-Box by PG Music Yes - to learn more about MIDI Setup in Band-in-a-Box, head to https://www.pgmusic.com/manuals/bbw2020full/chapter1.htm..."

And I used the Find option in that manual for VST3, and not a singel hit. But 52 hit on just VST..

I have tried and tried the whole day, to no avail. BiaB just says that the Reason VST3 is not a valid VST... Suggesting using JBridge, but JBridge saying the same...

And Reason support telling me that they are not familiar with BiaB, so they are not sure...

Perhaps PG Music and Propellerheads should talk together?

Now I just get an email from Reason support saying that the VST3 is NOT an .dll file, but an .exe file. So as we know, there is no option to load .exe files in the load new VST windows... So how can PG Music says it works? If, please educate me...

I think the new Blue Cat's PatchWork will load a vts3 in a vst2 host ?
You can use SaviHost to run the reason vst3 as a standalone then send the midi to it with Piz-Midi-In-Out.zip.mp4 (remove the .mp4) to send midiOut.dll from the midi track via LoopMidi to SaviHost.

Wrong! You'll find a vst3shell.dll and vsti3shell.dll in there:

http://www.xlutop.com/buzz/zip/beta/pvst_v1.1.10b22.zip

And you might want to get shell2vst archive as well to make individual wrappers by dragging the above dlls onto the shell2vst executable:

Oh, thanks Pipeline ! Have to try that, because just got it confirmed from chatting with Ember in the chat option here, that BiaB does NOT support VST3 yet... ;/

It's a shame IMHO, since VST3 have been around for 10 years !

Ah, I just read somewhere that is was an .exe file, but I see it now. It's an VST3 extension... My mistake.. So I tried to rename Savihost to Reason Rack Plugin.VST3, but that did not work also.. But now u say forget about it, so ok... wink

Will try to change my setting in File Manager and see if it works.. Thank's for ur help, as always Pipeline ! Why PG Music is not hiring guys like u, is beyond my understanding...;)

Seems like u r right. I just added the VST3 folder to the folder list Reason should scan, and all the others there was loaded, but NOT the reason rack.. Hm, strange. Will have to contact the Reason support on that..

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
