Who said it is just used to learn to play? I agree with you; many of us make very good sounding accompaniment tracks in many different styles. Nothing can touch this program for that. And if you used RealTracks like I do, you would want all you could get. That alone is easily worth the price of the new version!

Me too.

I use BIAB entirely for creating songs from start to finish. The Realtracks are worth their weight in gold to me. They really are an amazing invention for music creators.

There are a lot of things from the wishlist I would have loved to see in the upgrade and were it not for the new RealTracks I'd def take a pass. BUT, I'll upgrade just for the RealTracks! The upgrade price is reasonable and you get a lot of new tracks to use in making music!

Do you think a teacher using it to teach a student how to solo over the circle of 5ths cares about rewire?
Bob

Exactly,Bob. That 90% wants to do just that.Maybe just maybe certain bits could be a bit more plug and play for non-techies like me but it great in its core operations.
WendyM
PS-looks like 2018 is coming out a bit buggy so for Numpties like meI think id better hang on a couple of weeks while you fix things.
PPS-whats a circle of fifths?lol

I thought it was a circle of fourths. Ha.

A patch after a new release is pretty standard, but even as is, I’m not encountering any show-stopping problems in regular use.

He who knows these things says a fifth is a bottle of whiskey and thats why you go round in circles.
Im thinking that I'll hang on a bit and see what happens.Im sure to buy it but would prefer in less buggy as Im not easily able to fix techie things(as some of you guys already know from Beginners)if something needs se-setting etc.
Does anyone know if the VIDEO RTs are just so you can see the recording artiste playing them or they NEW RTs and can be incorporated into my SGU as if they are normal RTS?

Hello Bob (aka Jazzmammal)

Jbridge should never be used as an excuse for avoiding a 64 bit program rewrite.

These 64 bit instruments are wonderful and sophisticated. They appreciate having up to date midi tools for communication.

Unless I am mistaken, Biab has not updated midi communication in +20 years? The midi pages of this program suggest they are original and the midi tools are from a bygone age.

Check out how much Cubase, Live and Logic have invested in upgrading their midi communication tools in the last few years

If the boss sees the future only in Realtracks and Realdrums it would be helpful for him to say so then I can avoid the upgrade costs.

Great opportunity to wish you and all here a very Happy Xmas and New Year

Neil

Minor correction: New Xtra Styles PAK 4 is only $29

but yes "it do get pricey at this time of year" 5 new plugins, 4 new PG products, two new DAW's, and a partridge in my new guitar (plus four pair of new glasses, new dryer, ... it just never ends. Almost, I say ALMOST, forces me to reconsider going back to work - LOL

They must have just changed it as it was $49 with no discount offered when I wrote the post.
