"Is that allowed?" if your wife will let you.
Upgrade from 2014 or earlier or crossgrade $69
If you have wav file RealTrack/Drums.
On your MacBook yes.
Ipad you would have to use the free Band in a Box iOS app
or save Biab songs to Videos and play on the iPad.

BIAB will ONLY come of age (as far as VST maturity) when it allows more than one VSTi to be used at the same time and then allows output/input to be freely operated between them. Until then steps like those noted in this thread are quite arcane and are really not suited to live use. Play around stuff at home maybe, but not in the performing world. JMO!

You can use more than one VSTi at a time. For example, one on each track, so up to 7 at once.

>> and then allows output/input to be freely operated between them
- not sure what you are referring to here.

I think he means you can't load a vsti under a vsti only vst's, you need to be able to send the midi out of a vsti into another. So say I want to send the midi out of RealGuitar to Kontakt.
I managed to load a vsti under it by renaming a vsti to an existing vst (fooling it), then it loaded but didn't receive the midi from the vsti above it.

I tried some vsti chainers/racks like VSTBoard vst that worked but not too well with the sync.
RapidComposerVSTi needs it as it sends the midi back to the host so you need a vsti under it.
