no problems here. Airplay is now possible :-)
Remember to check if your midi interface drivers are compatible.

I'm finding that BIAB (I'm running the 2012 audiophile version) runs without a hitch in Mountain Lion. However, if you are planning on working on files created in BIAB in Apple's own software, you might want to wait before upgrading. I'm finding that running Logic Pro under Mountain Lion is a nightmare, with the program suddenly becoming unresponsive to any keystroke or mouseclick -- there's a long thread in Apple's support area with other users reporting the same thing, the tracks just keep playing. There are always some problems, for some users, with any update, but this seems pretty extreme. Some users have also reported problems with garageband under Mountain Lion. The upshot is that my customary work flow, exporting BIAB aiff and midi files into Logic, no longer works. It appears that PG may have done a better job of testing its music software under Mountain Lion than Apple did.

I have an old version of BIAB - version 12 for MAC. I want to upgrade my OS to Mountain Lion. Are there any known issues with this older version of BIAB using OS 10.8?

Hi Arlene,

Band-in-a-Box 12 was written for the old PowerPC Macs, so the last operating system that would support it is Snow Leopard.

Apple dropped support for the PowerPC programs when they made Lion, so it won't work in Mountain Lion either.

Thanks
Kent

Actually, the last system that would run on PPC Macs was 10.5, or Leopard. They dropped PPC support in Snow Leopard, 10.6 and from there on out all versions of the software only run on Intel Processors.

Hi Eric,

That's correct, but PowerPC programs (like Band-in-a-Box 12) still worked on Intel computers running Snow Leopard. Lion was the first OS to not run PPC applications.

Thanks

I just upgraded my operating system to 10.8.4 from 10.7 this weekend. I am using BIAB 2013 and so far so good. I upgraded the operating system so I could run Logic Pro X. Works great. I have BIAB midi data routed to Logic Pro to use the instruments in Logic while in BIAB. Knock on wood, no problems.
