Nobody is perfect. Help us to improve B-Step Sequencer and report bugs and problems.

It doesn't play any sound.

Post by yota » 03 Feb 2015, 14:50

Hi. I'm from japan.
I'm not good at English.
So If it's gonna be rude, I'm sorry.

I use imac(OS10.6.8).
And I installed B-step Sequencer which is in App store.
First is free trial, but It doesn't play any sound.
I thought if I buy, it'll make sound.
So I bought it in App store.
But same. It doesn't play any sound.
Other sounds in this pc work.
I didn't mute,changed velo and dula.
But still silent.

I don't know why, but do I have to set any other application??
I really want to use this app.With sound.
So please give me some advice.
Thank you.

Hi yota-san

thanks for purchasing B-Step.
Your English is fine.

B-Step itself is not a synthesizer - it's a pure MIDI sequencer -> no sound out of the box.
You need an external hardware- or software synthesizer which can produce sound from B-Step's notes.

In B-Step's in/out settings you have to choose a synthesizer as receiver for B-Step's note events.
Or in the input settings of your synthesizer you have to choose B-Step as MIDI IN device (depending on the synth you have).

If you don't have already a synthesizer. Here is a list of free synthesizers on KVRAudio: http://www.kvraudio.com/q.php?search=1& ... sh%5B%5D=s
Filteres set: Free, Mac, Standalone, Synth, Already Released

Just play around with the filters and try some synths. There are a lot of very good, non-free synthesizers with a demo/trial available too.


Does this help?
Do you need more help: "how to connect B-Step to a synthesizer"?

Best
Thomas

Hi yota. Your English is much better than my Japanese. I understood you fine.
yota wrote: I use imac(OS10.6.8).
Ok, Mac is not my thing, but I'm going to show you some VSTs that you need to use to make sound with B-Step.
The pages are in Japanese, so I am hoping they will explain things better than I ever could.

I am sorry if these do not work on the Mac platform, but this is more to help explain things for you.

The first VST I would recommend is 'synth 1'. http://www.geocities.jp/daichi1969/softsynth/

Ichiro Toda has made one of the most popular synths in the world ever. It is meant to sound like a Nord Lead. Many people who have the original synth say it does a very good job. There are thousands and thousands of sounds for it.

So what we are doing here, is recreating the sounds that usually come out of keyboards and put them into software that can work on a computer. We call these things 'emulations'. It gets a bit confusing because they can be played from real keyboards, or like you are doing just from your Mac.

B-Step is a kind of automatic keyboard player. When you click a square on B-Step, it is the same as hitting a key on a keyboard, or plucking a string on a guitar.

But as has been explained, B-Step contains no sounds at all. It is merely a trigger for the sounds. That is why you need other sound making devices to hear what it can do. These devices usually come in the form of 'VST' for PC, or 'AU' for Mac, to make a generalization. Synth1 is a VST that makes sound. B-Step triggers that sound.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synth1

But the really great thing about B-Step is, that it can not only trigger synthesizer sounds, but it can trigger drum sounds too. Here is another person from Japan that makes excellent Drum Machine 'emulations' that are free for you to download and use with B-Step:

http://marvinpavilion.ojaru.jp/ja/sound/vst.html

Again, I am sorry if these do not work on your platform. I just linked to them because they are in Japanese and you can maybe understand better what they explain. From there, you can find stuff that works on your system.


This stuff can be very complicated, and we understand that, so please ask any questions you like, and we will help you to get it working!

Impressed.
I really appreciate for you all.


Hi Thomas.Thank you.
Now I understood what was that silence.
This list is awsome!!
I will try to choose one.


Hi TonE.Thank you.
Cool quote.
I memorize.
;-)

Hi Monoman.
Wow detailed.
Now I know why this app make any sounds.
Japanese page.
I'll check this synth also.

Thank you all!
Now I can play.

Thomas.Hello again.
Yes, I need more help: "how to connect B-Step to a synthesizer".

I installed titan(free).
And Foo-Y20.This soft told me need to install Jack, then I looked for Jack and got it.
(synth1 wasn't recognized. Because this OS is bit old)
And then...

Connect.It means around here??
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_czLObz8Anw#t=43
Soft is different though.

There is no written of name titan in Midi IO setting.
So I have to set something in titan?

Hi yota-san,

I'm a bit busy today, but I'll make a tutorial ready and post it tomorrow. Ok?
Note: don't use the Synth that needs JACK for now, makes the things more complicated.
Connect.It means around here??
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_czLObz8Anw#t=43

Yes, this hits "connect". But in this video B-Step is used as VST plugin in the DAW Ableton Live and this is a bit more complex. On the other side: making music in a DAW is very common - I don't know how deep you like to dive into the world of music production?


*DAW = digital audio workstation -> a virtual music studio
*VST plugin = synths, sequencers and other audio & MIDI tools which you can load into a DAW -> virtual tools in your studio

*JACK = is a audio driver / connection kid (mostly used by Linux users)

Here are a few more things I found that you might find interesting:

http://synth-voice.sakura.ne.jp/

http://synth-voice.sakura.ne.jp/synth-v ... nload.html

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm15356016

Not sure how useful that is to you, but perhaps some of it is.


If I was going to advise you to get one package for use with B-Step (once you learn how to use it to its full advantage), I would say go for this:

http://www.korg.co.jp/

For me, and a lot of other people as well, the Korg emulations are the best in the world.
I have quite a few Korg products (hardware) but you should really check out the Legacy Collection:


These are hardware synths that have never been bettered. The emulations of them are perfect.
They don't cost very much money (for us at least).

If you are serious about your music making, or even if you just want to have a bit of fun, Korg do some really great stuff.

Me neither.

Hi yota,

lets go. Download Vogue MK2 on KVR: http://www.kvraudio.com/product/vogue-m ... lo/details
It's a simple free synthesizer and not to much for a start up.

Just 4 steps.

1 & 2. Start the Vogue Synthesizer and B-Step
3. Open B-Step's IO settings and Choose Vouge as receiver for the notes which B-Step produce (screen 3)
4. Press play (screen 4) -> You should get some sound?

Screen 3.
connect-midi.png
Screen 4.
play.png

Works?

Best.

Cool.

I overwrote some presets by mistake, so this is good to have.

Harder to do now you have changed the file management, but still.

It's impossible with 2.1 - the presets are hardcoded. :-)
Ok, not the downloads - should the downloaded presets write protect too?

I meant from before with older version. Didn't know that about new version.

Up to you with the write protect, not sure. Maybe not, they always have another copy.

yota, I don't know if you downloaded that drum machine I linked to in an earlier post, but here is a preset for B-Step to trigger it:

http://forum.monoplugs.com/viewtopic.ph ... =808#p3240

You could have one B-Step for Drums and one for Synths. Not sure of your setup. It will probably work with other drum machines too.

It doesnt play any sound

Post by Emilefrubs » 12 Oct 2019, 17:13

The Modchip doesnt change the DVD-Player... but allows Region-free playing of DVD games, yes

The region and the VMode are NOT the same

You can however use a PAL-DVD-Player on an NTSC-Console as well AFAIK...
