Wow, great vid. Didn't quite wrap my head around how Scaler could be used but I'm starting to see it's value. I guess I didn't know it could be used to drive multiple tracks. Much more powerful than I thought.

Jeff, here is a small bit of clarity..

Scaler and BIAB-VST both do the same thing; they both follow a chord chart and create midi performance content for different instruments. Of course, each does a lot more different things, but midi performance content is their commonality.

They differ in operation in that BIAB-VST will only run on one DAW track at a time while Scaler can run multiple occurrences of itself. So you can put Scaler on multiple DAW tracks and create multiple midi performance content.

So Dan, am I understanding this right? The BIAB-Vst can only run one instance per DAW session? Or is it one instance per DAW track, but you could have it running on multiple tracks at a time?

If I understand what you are saying, this is a powerful advantage Scaler has over the BIAB-vst.

Does Scaler always have to have multiple instances running? In other words, could I control multiple tracks with one instance assigning outgoing MIDI data to different channels?

Yes, one BIAB-VST per DAW Session

No and Yes - One Scaler One Track. But Scaler can "Sync" all occurrences so you only need to make a change in one Scaler to effect all others.

PG Music News
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."
