The 64 bit Cakewalk by Bandlab TTS-1 DXI soft synth has a pretty comprehensive help file that is available for viewing using a web browser.

I've converted the help file to a pdf file so you don't need a browser to view it. Unfortunately the hyperlinks don't work but the file is complete.

I've attached the file below.

The TTS-1 soft synth is a DXi instrument, not a VSTi instrument. Unlike VSti, the DXi location is entered into the Windows operating system registry so a program doesn't have to search for it, all Windows programs know it exists.

Open Preferences by pressing Ctrl+E then select the MIDI DRIVERS button.

When you click on the VSTi / DXi button you should see a list of sound modules that include TTS-1. If not, then your Cakewalk installation is faulty.

Hello Peter and others,

my problem is, the Cakewalk synth is not available for PowerTracks 2018 (in Windows 11), after I have made the whole installation (btw the installation takes almost one hour, if I checkmark the whole incredients). There is still just the CoyoteWT there, nothing else. The question is also, where the synth has to be and what format it is.

Maybe somebody is knowing something which could help. Thank you.

Best regards

Dieter

Dieter, others may disagree, but here is my advice. Forget about TTS-1! It is ancient history and no where near represents the best product for the job in current BIAB.

For the past couple years PGM has provided a free version of VSTSynthfont. The installation file is downloaded with your BIAB version. You will need to search for a good .SF2 file to provide the sounds. But this will be the best option to get the best sounds from BIAB Midi. Come back if you need specific help on the installation. Many of the folks here use this option.

Hello Dan (?),

thank you for the tip. Unfortunately I don't have BiaB, but just Powertracks (2018). Is the plugin anywhere else available? I did not find something useful in the net about VSTSynthfont.

Best regards

There is a paid version if you don't own BIAB. However, I know nothing about Powertracks 2018 so best to see what others say.

Hello Dan,

thank you very much. In the meantime I have found a file:

VSTSynthFont64.dll

But when I try to manifest it in PT, it says: No valid VST-file.

I am not sure what PT requires.

Not sure if Power Tracks is 32bit or 64bit.

Don't think you can use a 64bt VST in a 32bit program without something like jbridge or another bridging program.

Just my thoughts.

Just my thoughts.

Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available at the download link provided by @MusicStudent above. PowerTracks is probably a 32-bit program, so I'd try that version first.

Bandlab just released version 2024.02 of Cakewalk by Bandlab. TTS-1 is no longer included. Per the release notes:
Quote
The TTS-1 synth is no longer installed by Cakewalk, by request from Roland. This product is no longer supported and has reached end of life. Older installed versions may continue to work but it is no longer a default for insert instrument.

luckily i have the discs for the edirol hypercanvas - same thing - but as long as the tts1 works i'll use it. Any ideas for repalacement GM2 synth? What will PG be using to test their midi styles if the tts1 stops working?
does anything come with cakewalk instead?

I find the TTS-1 to be the least finicky synth I've tried with BIAB. Will miss it, if it goes away.
Have not had the best of luck with VSTSynthFont64 (especially the new current, 3.5 version).

They still have the Roland Sound Canvas VST's for sale at Sweetwater for $69, although there are only a few reviews and they're' not all stellar. Has anyone here tried it?

The only snag as I can see is that if you need to reinstall or install on a new pc the tts1won't be available. The Roland is probably an evolution of the tts1and the iffy reviews are most likely from the same people who don't like the test.

The TTS-1 was released in 2007 and is based on the Roland HyperCanvas plugin.
The Roland SoundCanvas VA includes the sound banks from all the various hardware Roland sound modules such as the MT-32, SC-55, SC-88 and SC-8880. If you write MIDI music for games or you want to make music sound like it was made in the 1980-1990s you likely need the SoundCanvas VA.

If you have an older Cakewalk product you can use the installer from that product to install the TTS-1. For example I have Cakewalk Home Studio which can load 32 or 64 bit TTS-1.

If you have TTS-1 on your computer it will not stop working, it just will not be supported. Just like Windows XP or Windows 7 still works but are no longer supported.

I'm not replying directly to Peter's post, he was just the OP

This is strictly for someone who wants or needs 32-bit TTS-1 for whatever reason – technical, personal, contrarian, spiteful, “just because,” etc. AND THE POST BELOW ASSUMES, repeat ASSUMES, that person has, or can get a copy of old Cakewalk, Sonar, or the old Cakewalk Music Creator. This also allows a way to switch between 32-bit and 64-bit TTS-1. Using the DXi this comes in handy if you are running both 32-bit and 64-bit DAW's that can use a DXi. I don't think there are more than two or three DAW's or other music apps today that can even recognize DX's & DXi's)

Yes, the first post below is less than clear. It was my usual ramblings after drinking a few too many, after a long day at work. It needs a complete rewrite and simplification; however, I have ZERO intention of doing that at this late date, so basically "Caveat Emptor" as it were.

Others have already discussed getting 64-bit TTS-1 via free Cakewalk Bandlab, use of free HAlion Sonic, VSTsynthfont, etc., etc., etc. (as the "King" would say)

https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=282967

this thread is just more how-to discussion using regsvr32 – again you are on your own.
