I completed my song today and wanted to master it in my cakewalk DAW with the BIAB VST plugin, however I get no output from the bass track, just silence.
It all works fine in the BIAB application. I have been through every step over and over but nothing. Even tried generating just the bass track.
This is the completed song in case it helps.

As a quick fix, maybe export the BiaB Bass as a wav and try importing that into CW?
Just an idea ..

I'm not sure what version of BIAB that you are using, and more specifically, if a later version of the Plugin is available for you. I note you are using 5.5.6.

If you are running BIAB 2024, then there is a later DAW plugin available on this page:

Not sure if this helps.

BTW: No Bass track audio from the plugin has been identified previously, but I'm not sure if the reason is known. Others may know more.

I figured out a work around. Saving the bass track as a wav file from BIAB. Thanks rharv, great minds think alike!

My BIAB Version is 2023 (1013) and it says I am up to date. I think I have to pay for additional updates.

AudioTrack is right; the problems I read about with the plugin were discussed about a more recent build. Given this and your other post about missing drums, it would probably be wise to update to 2024. The updated plugin comes bundled for free.

Thanks all. I have no more songs planned for now. I also have workarounds for it if I need bass and drums.
Odd that something like this isn't working right after all these years. Are we sure that they addressed it in the new version?

It is currently NOT addressed in the current version. But it is very recently acknowledged and a fix is promised for the next update.

Dan is right, and what he is describing is a new problem, just reported, awaiting a fix. I'm not sure there is any relationship between that and the problem you have with your older version.

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.
