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?
