2014 great stuff!
I saw the thread on no 64bit support but I'm in a different category.
Midi tempo, bar numbers, etc. just don't get sent down the VST/VSTi from BIAB

Can't sync LFO's, arps, echo rates sync to tempo, change things based on bar number, etc.

Still wouldn't be able to do this even if BIAB supported 64bit VST/VSTi

Midi is still #1 for me.

Are you talking about latency? Where the synths are playing behind the audio with a delay?

If so, you are probably using a factory sound card with MME as the driver. The best fix to this is to get a dedicated USB interface and run ASIO drivers. Unfortunately, most factory cards don't work well with ASIO, but ASIO is designed to be a musical driver and will run a musical interface perfectly.

I haven’t received my 2014 version yet so I don’t know if this has changed or not but previous versions of BiaB and RB could not lock timing to VSTs or VSTis. You would have to use another DAW if you want to use that feature. I use Sonar.

I do hear you loud and clear. I am a Midiot also!

I've seen that movie. Hundreds of years in the future, only MIDI survived.
