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.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
