Jump to new posts IK Multimedia apps by TRYUK @ Yesterday at 11:50 PM

I notice that the IK Multimedia apps in BiaB 2019 are all 32 bit. So far I cannot find 64 bit versions on the IK web site. I noticed that some Real styles use Amplitube, will these styles cease to work if there is no update to 64 bit by IK Multimedia? Edit: Amplitube 4 is 64 bit, for some reason I thought it was a paid app, but its not. That works fine, Custom shop and the authorisation manager still show up as 32 bit though. Tim.

Por lo tanto lo que pensé hacer fue ingresar con mi piano por la entrada MIDI y tocar sobre la canción que tengo hecha en BIAB , escuchando el resultado final por la salida de auriculares de la notebook Todo parecía funcionar pero mi piano se escuchaba mu

Jump to new posts Best Way to Listen to Blue Note Classics? by AksarBhai @ 09/19/19 12:28 AM

Jazz fan here, and some of my favorite albums are from Blue Note from the 1950’s & 60’s. I listen to vinyl and CD’s, and I’m starting to think recently that mastering matters more than format in terms of audio quality. Problem is for much of the Blue Note catalogue from that era, the CD remasters are inconsistent or problematic. Many of the first generation of CD remasters were by Ron McMaster, and they’re ok but it was still early days of learning how to make CD’s sound great.

Here's a great suggestion from -steve- in the Cubase forum. When I tried this ages ago with Cubase it was using a held piano style but was played in inversions and Cubase didn't pick up the correct chords now there are a lot of MidiSuperTracks with Held I tried it with Piano Held Acoustic 3002 it picked up the correct chords though they were just simple. So try it out with some more complex chords with the different MidiSuperTracks and see how you go with it. So just drag the track in and se

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
