Any chance we will see PowerTracks become available for Mac? Or the features included in BIAB Mac?

It's been requested (likewise for RealBand) for many years. While it could happen, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Update:

In WineBottle give the Identifier a name like com.pg.powertracks as it goes
in User/Application Support/com.pg.powertracks.

To get your BB track into PowerTracks Export then then give the a simple name like Drums, Fiddle etc..

You can save files to User/Application Support/com.pg.powertracks/drive_c/pt/songs, as PowerTracks will open in the pt folder.

1. Save your BB song again as song-powertracks.SGU then after save rename to MGU.

2. PowerTracks File > Open song-powertracks.MGU (this will give your chords).

3. Now select the first track > File > Import > Bass.WAV, next track Drums.WAV etc..

4. You can Import the RealCharts Midi as well, in RealTrack Prefs check Save RealCharts in Midi file/BB Song MGU

5. File > Save Special > Midi > File on Disk.

6. PowerTracks File > Import song-powertracks.MID ** Don't import Chord from the Midi file !!!

I don't have a Mac, but am curious. After setting up WineBottler to use PowerTracks, what are the limitation? Effects, virtual instruments, etc. Do you just copy over your VST/VSTi files, or to Mac effects/instruments get virtualized for the PowerTracks environment? Just an "enquiring minds want to know" question.

You can put the Win VST/VSTi's in a folder in User/Application Support/com.pg.powertracks/drive_c/ then add to PowerTracks.
You can get in the Mac side of things with your Win PC if you don't have an (expensive) Mac @ https://www.tonymacx86.com/ as the Macs use the Intel Windows hardware now (that Windows users developed smile ).

That's very cool, Pipeline. Thanks!

I'll pass that along to my son, who uses a Mac, as this may interest him.
