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.

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.

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.

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track
