I'm trying to get Biab VST handling fixed
so we don't have to use Element
This is just initial steps, once you get it setup you simply Load Group > xxx.tgs It can also use VST3.
This is using EZKeys for Playable RealTracks, the same could be done with EZBass and EZDrummer. Their Midi Out is just sent to Sforzando.
It's a lot eZer editing and changing midi in Toontracks than in Biab Piano Roll !Create Midi Chord track and turn volume down
in Biab Mixer right click the an empty track name > Edit MIDI > Generate Chord Track on This Track (set to complex chords and # Ticks > 0)Load Element
on an empty Midi track
enable EXT to sync to Biab (top left).
load EZKeys (under Toontrack) hooking Midi Input up to Midi In of EZKeys
load Sforzando (under Plogue) hooking EZKeys Midi Out to Sforzando Midi In and Sforzando Audio Out to Audio Output.
On the Biab Piano RealTrack track enable Playable RealTracks in Piano Roll
make a note of the sfz it uses
right click on the FX slot and Re-Route Midi to the Element track
set Sforzando in Element to the the same sfz, it's usually Band-in-a-Box Sounds > Piano > Acoustic Grand PianoSetting Section in EZKeys
in EZKeys Menu > Enable MIDI Out
whatever section in the Piano Roll you have set for Playable RealTrack
high light those chords on the Biab chord sheet
now drag the "Chords" track from the Mixer to MID DROP
drag the green MID into EZKeys track to bar number +2, if you double click on Biab chord sheet bar you will see the same cursor position in EZKeys (if it starts on another beat just adjust the midi in EZKeys to start on that beat as you can't select beats in the chord sheet YET)
in EZKeys Browser select the midi loop you want to be played in Biab
down on the EZKeys track on the left you will see "USE BROWSER MIDI" select this with the chord section midi in EZKeys track selected then use "REPLACE" if it's what you want
You will need to adjust the volume to match the RT audio, you have track volume, a volume in Element and in Sforzando.
To render the track just solo both tracks and drag Master to DROP. Zoom++
