Has anyone run Real Band successfully on a Mac via Boot Camp or Parallels?

Runs fine on Parallels Desktop just need cpu an some ram as it runs using virtualization, also needs a windows OS XP Vista Win7 have not tried REACTOS with it yet. Dragged wavs to desktop then Logic.
With Crossover (Wine front end) it stops while writing wavform when generating , I remember this from some years back, BB I think worked.

You would need to buy http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/
and Win XP or 7 https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=windows+XP&
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=Windows+7
Then you would have to buy the Win Biab/RB package but that won't read the aiff files on your Audiophile Mac drive.
If you had of purchased the Win Audiophile version Mac BB would read it and use the Wav files.

You might be better trying PowerTracks On Mac OS X
