Did you load sforzando? I'm not sure about how BIAB loads High Q patches but in RB you need to load sforzando on the actual track then load the patch.

Hi stratos, the Hi-Q selector from right clicking the track seems to not be working - I've reported that to the development team.

As a workaround, you can manually apply the Hi-Q synth to the track. Here's a tutorial on how to use VSTi/DXi plugins in RealBand: https://www.pgmusic.com/techfaq63.htm#58

The Sforzando VST is usually located in C:\Program Files\Plogue\sforzando\VST - once you've loaded it, the top left "Instrument" drop down menu will let you select which Hi-Q patch to load.

Thanks Simon.
I hope it will get to work as easy as in BB.
I found Sforzando VST but still I have to find out if Im doing it wrong.
Its still a little difficult for me, to understand patches and banks etc..

well you learn something new every day! I use a lot more sforzando patches than just the BIAB ones so I've always loaded sforzando as a vst and chosen the patches that way - from the drop down i get BIAB sounds and the other files i've added

never tried the right click so didn't know it was broken!

1) Yes, and now I also had to realize and relearn, that I will have to open "VST/DXI Synth panel configuration" to get to my sforzando , and there I have to choose for each track.

2) If I choose "set Sforzando to all midi tracks" every track sounds with the same instrument.

3) BUT selecting Coyote and CakeWalk TTS-1 via "VST/DXI Synth panel configuration"
and then chosing " set Cakewalk TTS-1 + Coyote to all midi tracks", those programs sets the right sound for each instrument.

4) I don´t know if I should mark as solved , as the "Select Hi-Q midi " still doesn´t change anything as opposite to Band In a Box

1&4) We've at least identified a problem, and it's now in the capable hands of our programming team.

2&3) Plogue Sforzando is not a General MIDI plugin, nor is it multitimbral. It is not capable of playing more than one instrument at a time, unless you use a separate instance of the plugin for each track - most instrument plugins work this way. CoyoteWT and Cakewalk TTS-1 are both General MIDI and multitimbral, so they are both capable of working in the way you are expecting them to.

It should be fixed in a future patch update, once they determine what's gone wrong.

You're welcome! Glad to help.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
