I'm running the latest edition of RealBand. My DAW has two monitors. What I like to do is position ancillary windows of various stuff on my second monitor, so as to keeep things uncluttered on the primary.

I just tried moving RB's mixer over to my secondary monitor and found out I couldn't. It's imprisoned within the confines of the larger RB window. Why? And then I tried moving the Tracks window. Same difference. It's imprisoned. I haven't tried any of the other windows yet. But I repeat my question. Why?

Set them Windows free, I tell ya! Set them free!

The sub windows will all be contained in the master RealBand window. Have you tried extending the main window to the second screen, then moving the sub windows over to that new space?

No, I haven't because I didn't want to chop up the master window. Guess I'll have to if I want to reposition stuff. But it would be nice if I could move things around without having to stretch RB.

You know what having the imprisoned windows reminds me of? Win3.1. Yuck.

It's a reasonable request if it can't currently be done outside of the main RealBand screen's real-estate.

+1 Peculiar that you can do it in BIAB but not in RealBand. I just accepted it on the previous version, but it is annoying.

Yeah, it was the fact that I could move BiaB's mixer anywhere I wanted that I just assumed that RealBand had that capability too. It surprised me that I couldn't do the same with RB's mixer.

As I recall (not in front of my music computer right now), the only thing you can move to the 2nd monitor in RealBand is the VST(i) window.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
