+1.

Been requested before and will likely be requested again. There are functions only RealBand can perform and Mac users would enjoy partial track regeneration, multi-riff and working on a project linear.

all the hard work is done creating bbmac so they just need the daw that uses bbmac to generate the tracks.
I just went back in time with the page numbers and there are lots of good, long forgotten requests that maybe just need another look at.

FWIW, I am so happy and comfortable with my own DAW (Digital Performer) that I wouldn't even need to consider RealBand if it weren't for the fact that you can do partial track regeneration and other things in RealBand that can help to COMP the song before exporting it to my DAW for final treatments with favorite plugins and VIs.

If RealBand for Mac is too much additional development work, then it would be great if those partial track regeneration abilities of RealBand which could be built into the main BIAB program asap.

If not, I would be happy to learn how to use RealBand and include it in my BIAB workflow if a Mac version were available.

Can we please get an indication from someone at PG Music as to whether or not any of this is planned?

We are not presently developing RealBand for Mac. However, the vast demand and continued requests have not gone unnoticed!

Thanks to all for your suggestion.

If RealBand for Mac is not in the works, I would still love to see the ability to preserve performances in certain bars of a song, so that you don't lose them when you regenerate the song after changing the chord arrangement.

When you hear something PERFECT happening, and you know that that's how you want it to be for the final version of the song, it's pretty frustrating to have to lost that perfect moment when you regenerate the song. It makes splicing and dicing several versions of the song A LOT of extra work when exported to my DAW, and forces me to expend a lot of mental energy keeping tracks of which parts I want to use in which versions of the song.

It is crazy that maybe all I want to do is add an intro or an outro or maybe a few bars to the solo section on an otherwise very nicely performed song, and the only way to do it is to add the chords and then regenerate the entire song's performance.

Anything that would help make it easier to get as close to a perfect performance within a single version of the BIAB song would be be very welcome.

PG, Peter staed five years ago that Macs are vastly superior when it comes to dealing with audio. The fact that you don't need extra drivers, sound cards, built in MIDI etc make Realband perfect for Mac. Please do take this suggestion to your next marketing meeting and try to push for this to happen.

RealBand is great but it is very buggy as it is just PowerTracks that uses the Band in a Box application in the background to generate up the tracks in a temp folder that are then loaded into RealBand. This can be done on Mac and Win with a vst version that loads into Pro Tools, Logic or Reaper etc.. and uses the Band-in-a-Box.app in the background to give you all the features in the 64bit DAW of choice. It will be easy compared to creating a new RealBandaid.app and will be more stable.

All the Biab functions will be in the VST GUI.
It could have a selectable linear chord track (Cubase/RapidComposer/EZKeys) or normal chord sheet like Biab or both so the vst can be scaled down to a small size.

It will work similar how the Chord Tool works by sending data to the Band-in-a-Box.app running silently in the back ground.

If only you could get a job there, Pipeline.
Now, that would sure be a great move.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
