I think scaleable graphics would go a long way to improving the interface.

Who needs CGA when you have monochrome green phosphor ? lol

AS ReWire hasn't shown up I think the best solution to all this is JJJ's idea of a VST/AU/AAX version of Biab that works in the DAW of your choice 64bit or and yes, get this, a 32bit DAW !

The other closest option for now is ReWireVST RealBand/PT as the ReWireVST still don't work in in Biab, that's a shame. But at least with Realband you drag out the tracks instantly but Biab you need to go have a cup of tea between drags.

Steve, I did too! I played it on an original IBM-PC! I believe it was magenta, cyan, black & white! Or it could have been red, green, brown & black! So many choices!

This is by far the best solution! They can keep tweaking the old 32-bit GUI for those comfortable with the past and release a VST that lets me bring RealTracks into my DAW directly!

They'd still need a RealTracks manager to do auto-generation as well as riff selection (like Realband). And they'd need a way for me to enter my chords. But other than that I'd guess about 75% of the BIAB features could be just left out completely!

And a RealTracks VST, if done right, is the killer music product of the decade! I mean, c'mon, they must be working on this, right?

I'm betting they will still be releasing 32 bit for brand new quantum computers, so I wouldn't bet on it.

There was a question posted on a forum about what was the best VSTi for guitar, and I wanted to say it was hands down BB/RB in "Vst" mode, but I already knew what the response would be.

You are spot on them not trying to capitalize on their strengths with a RT/BB VST. If properly done that would possibly make them a top dog in the VST world.

Hello marketing where you at?

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!
