ALL.

just did a test wav vs flac recording….reaper.

parameters for test.

1..sound device set to asio 4ms latency 256 samples. no glitches.
2..20 traks with fx playing back while recording 8 new traks 24 bit..flac test then wav test.
didnt see a big differnence tween flac vs wav cpu wise. up to 18 % max.

ive thrown loads of traks at this new pc with m2 and dont get it to 'puff out'. no matter trak count ymmv.
to be fair i only use low cpu useage plug ins.

maybe i'm missing something…but ive never had a prob with glitches here recording flac with loads of traks playing back even on an old machine. thats why i like flac..it works great for me. even on my old i5 refurb trying to make a glitch i never could make it glitch.
never even seen 30 % cpu useage.

i suggest people do their own wav vs flac tests as we all have different rig set ups. and what works for moi might
not for another user.

MERRY XMAS TO ALL.

Yes, your new machine is a spanker and is probably more than up to the task.
Your test results are, well, vague but I believe you.
In the end you're adding an "on the fly" conversion process to an already hungry process.
The question would be, given the circumstances, WHY? - and the answer, beyond "...because I always have..." would need to be a a good one for anyone else to adopt this as a useful "tip or trick".

I have been using the standard (non-audiofile) version for many years. (Originally had an Atari ST version if I recall correctly...)

Anyway, there are a handful of "go-to" styles that I always tend to gravitate toward. It would be great if there was an option to purchase a few audiophile styles. (At the moment, I'm primarily a hobbyist and the cost of the full Audiofile version with the full .wav library is somewhat prohibitive.)

More of a comment than a question, I suppose.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
