I must admit , the waiting for the 2014 Mac version is really getting on my nerves.
It is taking a looooooong time.

BIAB 2013 was announced on 3/06 . . . maybe it's taking a little extra time to put all those great new features in there to finally bring it to full parity with the Windows version? Finally? grin

It does feel like an excessively long wait.

This is the first release, since starting on 2011, that I have actually been waiting for. My previous upgrades have been "Oh, what the heck!" afterthoughts. Now it's serious!

CT, I'm not surprised they are working on 2014.5, but I am highly disappointed in the progress (if any) of the OSX version. :-(
Come on PGM...show some love to your loyal Mac users!

Hi SPitts,

I was actually just yanking your chain a bit! I am a Windows BIAB fan !!

I am just stirring to test the expectation around a possible Windows 2014.5 ....

This wait is insupportable.
They could allow us to download the new realtracks.

I heard a rumor that when it is finally released it will come with a complementary case of fine Canadian microbrews. Now THAT's worth waiting for! grin

(Okay, I admit it . . . I'm the one who started the rumor. It's worth a shot.)

I was about to buy Band-in-a-Box for Mac when the Windows 2014 version came out.
So I decided to wait for the new version ... and wait ... and wait ...

I would be happy with the 2013 version for now, but I don't want to have to pay a $70 (or whatever) upgrade fee within a couple of months of purchasing the software. I would buy today if they would offer a free upgrade to 2014 whenever it comes out.

Unfortunately I was told by the sales team that they can only offer a free upgrade within 30 days of purchase. Bummer. It sure seems unlikely that the new release will be within 30 days?

It would be really nice to hear any kind of news on the progress, expected features. Anything!
