Re: Soft synth TTS-1

For the TTS-1 with all of its sounds, it's not a very big .dll so I am guessing that somehow there is a library of sounds which is part of the package but not installed in the same folder with the TTS-1.dll file. And I am guessing that the .dll is searching for those data files for the actual sounds using some sort of regressive tree structure rather than specific paths but that's just a wild guess.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It matters not -- it only works from the original installation folder so somehow it's linked to other files within that installation folder.
I know that most VST and DXi plugins are self-contained or at least have all their data within the same local folder but apparently that's not the case this time.
But at least now we know that the original installation needs to be kept intact. Unless someone with deeper knowledge of these things can find out more.
In any event, I am very grateful for all this discussion and the followup messages because I had basically written off using the MIDI styles in my private lessons, since they're all online and I share my computer's audio with my students so I can play BIAB files and they come through my students' computers for them to practice playing jazz and improvising with. Now that I've got TTS-1 working so nicely with BIAB, I can use MIDI styles and don't have to search for substitute realstyles before playing the songs for my students.
It's been a real eye-opener, Thanks everybody!
