Hi,

I've had an i7 Lenovo Yoga with 8Gb RAM and 500Gb ssd since January 2014 and have had no problems running BIAB.  I'm still on BIAB 2016 Megapack.

BIAB VSTi?

D F Tweedie
 

Been pretty quiet around here until Mr. Fiddle came along. :)

BIAB 2020 is just around the corner.

Wondering what the status of the VSTi implementation is at present. Any recommendations specific to that feature?

Thanks.

I had one of the original Surface tablets, with the i5 processor and 256GB of storage, and BIAB worked fine on that.

BIAB should work fine on any computer which can run Windows10. The only potential problems might be in using the Real Styles with the Real Instruments if you don't buy a machine with a fast enough processor or enough RAM. But that's true of any machine.

I know that there are different versions of the SurfacePro (processor, RAM, storage space) and that factors into the price. Get an i7 processor with 16GB Ram and 512GB or 1TB Storage and you won't have a problem other than reading the icon labels on the smaller screen.

The same considerations apply for the Lenovo Yoga -- although I don't have any experience with that computer, as long as you've got enough storage to load all of BIAB into the machine's storage and enough RAM to surpass the minimum requirements listed at the PGMusic web-site [Minimum 1GB RAM (2GB+ recommended)
Minimum 1.0 GHz processor (2GHz+ multicore recommended)
1GB free Hard Disk space for a minimal install (15GB+ recommended)
Pro RealCombos: ~15 GB
MegaPAK RealCombos: ~25 GB
Full UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ when installed to internal hard drive: ~120 GB]

If you buy the download versions of the Windows version of BIAB you'll be able to download them to the new computer and install that way. But if the machines don't have a DVD drive (I know the Surface Pro doesn't) you'll need to buy an external DVD drive if you want to buy the shipped version of BIAB.

Technically, it SHOULDN'T be a problem unless the laptop or Surface Pro isn't new.
An Intel i5 with reasonable RAM and storage space and up-to-date Win10 should be fine.
Put BIAB on a thumb-drive and do a test run @ a retail store.  No fuss and negative impact.
Just my $0.02.

Hi ...

Here are two hypothetical answers.

1. Assuming that Second Life has some type of input for an audio stream from the local computer, you'd route the output from BIAB to that input.

2. If Second Life requires some third party program for streaming audio along with the game, you'd route the BIAB output to that input.

In conclusion ... assuming streaming other audio with the game is a function of that game, you'd stream BIAB just exactly as you would any other audio 'player.'

You will probably have to make sure that the Second Life or 3rd party audio input device (to which you will route BIAB outp ut) is set as the default audio device in the Windows  via the Control Panel functions.

I don't know what the program Second Life is, but I'm not sure I
understand what you want to do. Are you trying to record a soundtrack
for your installation of Second Life? Are you wanting to have your
avatar appear to be playing what you're playing while you do it?

If I understand what you're trying to do I think the best way to use
BIAB in such a situation would be to save the BIAB-generated
accompaniment as an audio file. Once you've done that any glitches
would need to be addressed by the Second Life tech support people.

I think it would be very difficult to have BIAB generate its
accompaniment while you're playing at the same time and have it all work
together in Second Life.

Perhaps if you're more specific about what you are trying to do members
of this gorup could offer more specific help.

So far, so straightforward ? What problem are you having ?

Do you intend the Biab sound and your live play to be functionally separate ie simultaneously audible, but not technically affecting each other?

Re: BIAB 2017 auto chord wizard not setting first bar

Clifton Davis
 

As far as I know, there is no better way than what you are doing. The only thing I have is the stupid suggestion of recording your originals with a metronome running in the background for consistency of tempo.

Sorry - Clif

HI

I have recorded some of my originals and then loaded the mp3 via auto chord wizard, and it has difficulty setting the first bar.  Even if I right click set first bar.


Also since I am not a robot, the tempo through the song will vary a bit, bar length will vary slightly.


How do I get it to auto set these bar markers?


What I have been using is the F8 key as it plays the song, I tap that for the bars.  That works, but was hoping for an automatic method.  


That might be as good as it gets... 


Just thought I'd ask if I wasn't doing something correctly.


Thanks in advance

Re: BIAB 2019 DAW Plugin Status?

Media Production
 

I don’t think any software developer can launch a new VSTi integrated application with users expecting it to be perfect and robust......successive new versions of BIAB VSTi are always going to be better and have more features.
 
I think the BIAB VSTi feature is great but until they have all the backend code optimized and can take advantage of multi core threads, I’ll probably be just as content dragging and dropping wav files into my DAW.
Its lightning fast and will probably always be the fastest method for my production flow.
 
I also think Studio One users will have better experience than Cubase users.

Well said Joe...I think BIAB development team as small as it is has great aims to meet their timetables but then there are always hurdles with so many formats.
The one thing we can all agree on, is that BIAB real tracks are exceptional and keep better and better...and that enables a lot more customizations of productions.
 
There are endless possibilities for me to lift BIAB wave files and even sometimes convert to MIDI files in snippet editing to change up the genre in original song productions.
Its fun to use Omnisphere 2 in this fashion....so many tools for endless potential using BIAB real tracks.

Thanks Rodger,

 

Seems like you have quite a professional setup going on there, so I perfectly understand your reluctance to introduce some thing into the musical chain that would definitely slow it down.

 

We can only hope that PG will make the necessary improvements to the plugin in the future, in the short term I wouldn't be holding my breath that they will do so .

 

But hey its only a minor thing in the great scheme of things.
