I ran RB up to the 2024 version on an old Dell Inspiron with Windows 8.1 for maybe 10 years and the Jbridge handled the Sonnox Oxford Reverb perfectly. It was a 512gb hard drive and I was running out of space.

so ...

I now installed a new 1TB SSD into another spare i7 Dell Inspiron that I had and installed Windows 11 on it. I moved all my music software over to this PC. Now when I scan for the VSTs I get a jBridge message: "Could not load the plugin"

In RB the yellow error message reports "Oxford Reverb Native.dll is not a valid Plugin"

But on Windows 8.1 it works perfectly?

Tried all the Run as Administrator options, cannot get it to work ...
Any ideas?

Hi CT,

This sounds like it might be related to a 32-bit versus 64-bit issue.

Was your 8.1 system 64 bit or 32 bit?

Also, when you say you "moved Sonnox Oxford" to your Windows 11 machine, does this mean that you reinstalled it on the Windows 11 machine? And if you re-installed it, what version of the plugin did you re-install? RB does not support VST3 plugins and as far as I'm aware, JBridge doesn't act as a bridge for VST3 plugins.

Regards,
--Noel

Windows 8.1 is also 64 bit version. That why I cannot figure what's the difference.

I did installed jBridge again and Sonnox on the Windows 11 Machine.

Oh, and I run RB 64 bit on both sides, so its exact same RB, same Jbridge, same Sonnox. Just windows 11 different on the "new" PC.

btw. I started the old RB 2020 32bit RB on windows 11 and Sonnox works.

(Wished then for RB2024 32bit version)

The +++ Sonnox Oxford Reverb User Guide +++ indicates license and ilok authorization is needed.

Have you used the free ilok account or ilok2 device to authorize the plugin?

Have you downloaded and tried the 64 bit VST2 plugin without Jbridge?

Have you checked with +++ Sonnox Support +++?

As another option, some of my plugins have the VST3 version in one of the places music programs tend to look.
For some Kontakt stuff I had to specifically point it to the VST2 version in a different folder.
Luckily for me that folder was clearly labeled .. but the apps didn't find that folder by default; I had to navigate to it.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
