Hi Everybody, first time here, hope it's the right place.
Is there a way to save the style and the real picker windows layout after resizing?
Everytime i open these windows it comes back the same way.
I tried to "save windpw size" in preferences but it just works for the main window.
Thanks

You would get more responses if you started another thread.

Sorry I gave up on the plug-in completely so I can't answer your question.


Why is it that the people who tell me to calm down are the ones who tick me off in the first place!

This thread was back in 2020 when there was interest and enthusiasm to make the Plugin better but now it's all seems to have died in the *^%.
You now get a few post with 1 or 2 reply's.
I think a lot have given up on it like me. Let's hope all the functions and improvements recommended are now being implemented after the 4 months Mac programming.

Does anyone else have hope that we will see massive change in 23 and give us something that will generate tracks quicker than Biab main app without taking ages creating a whole lot of wav files filling up the hard drive ?

I hope it starts to do all it's supposed to do to begin with. For me, as yet, it doesn't.
Make the code stable then build on that former foundation I suppose.
I stopped using the LPUGIN for track generation yonks ago. I use it for the chord chart principally.
Exporting tracks from BIAB and importing into Reaper is faster than the VST in my experience.
Having to reset the tempo in the VST each time I open the Reaper project is annoying too.
LOTS of glitches but, as I mentioned, the chord chart is the reason I use it anyway.


Cheers

Thanks for the feedback Ray! What version of the plugin are you using? The latest version of the plugin has the "tempo reset" issue fixed along with several other major stability improvements. Please install the latest update patch and if you are experiencing any more issues, please provide specific examples of what is not working to your expectations or what you would like to see improved, and I will make sure to fix it right away!

Adar, if you were given total control of the Plugin with the generate code it would sky rocket ahead as a whole new product leaving the Delphi 6 months Win 6 months Mac behind.
To rely on the old Biab Delphi app in the background holds it back in every way.
I know enough about how it all works to create a Plugin that would do all that or I could give that info to other developers, BUT I don't because I want to help PG get there though they a very stubbornly holding onto the past. Look how much time and effort I put into it for years, I don't get anything out of it, I do it from the goodness of my own heart.
PG, please get your finger out already, I'm dying watching this paint dry.

I understand and appreciate Rob Helms's point with this thread. It ended up being 8 pages long so though it may have had narrower participation and following it's just my view it was worthwhile. Just yesterday as a complete novice I was able to fairly quickly create an audio backing track for my song.

And it was really useful too as a resource for what the VST's shortcomings are and why maybe it's just simpler to use the stand alone BIAB program and export that to Reaper.

And though at times folks mentioned other products that seemed to hijack the thread's purpose I did appreciate guys mentioning those other products since I'm a neophyte to computer DAW music production and those mentions helped me with some interesting directions to consider.

That doesn't mean I'll be abandoning BIAB. I find it great for quickly creating a practice backing track for whatever song I'm either creating or wanting to learn. It seems every program has it's strengths .

On the other hand I think I also realized I'm probably good with whatever I've already acquired form the makers of BIAB since they hardly participated at all in responding to this thread plus for my purposes BIAB is good enough as of my 2022 version
