I would like to see RB have VST3 and ARA compatability. I recently purchased Melodyne 5 Essentials and can only use it as a stand alone product which is cumbersome to say the least. Being able to access Melodyne 5 within RB as a plugin would be great.


Music is what feelings sound like.

+1. While I believe adding support for both VST3 and ARA will benefit PG Music and users of PowerTrackPro and RealBand, I believe VST3 support is the more important specification. The VST3 specification covers more plugins than ARA.

I would also like to add my vote for VST3 support in BIAB and RB. I have access to lots of cool vintage synth plugins that are VST3 only, and would dearly love to use then.

I found a vst3 wrapper that works in Realband. It finds your vst3's and so you can use them

It seems to work fine on BB tracks in Reaper using the BB track injector from the Biab forum, giving full control of what you need and infinitely variable.
You can use melodyne and still be able to change any section/slice of track any time as well as lengthen/shorten any riff as it's using the source files, this gives way more control than just getting what RB gives.
This will put the tracks in Reaper quicker than can be generated up in RealBand.
Now if RealBand could work that way it would be a different story.

Put my name on the list of people who need VST3 support in RB

I am pretty happy using RB as my go-to DAW, but lack of support for my latest greatest plugins is the sort of thing that forces me to use other DAW software. BUT I DON'T WANT TO!!

YOU DON'T HAVE TO !!
vst3shell_v1.2.1.zip
vst3shell_beta.zip
Extract the folder to anywhere outside of your VST2 folder.
Add vsti3shell.x64.dll to your VSTi list.
Add vst3shell.x64.dll to your VSTFX list.

When you choose them you will get a list of your vst3's, pick one from the list.

Yes, VST3 support for RB should have happened long ago.
