I think scaleable graphics would go a long way to improving the interface.

Who needs CGA when you have monochrome green phosphor ? lol

AS ReWire hasn't shown up I think the best solution to all this is JJJ's idea of a VST/AU/AAX version of Biab that works in the DAW of your choice 64bit or and yes, get this, a 32bit DAW !

The other closest option for now is ReWireVST RealBand/PT as the ReWireVST still don't work in in Biab, that's a shame. But at least with Realband you drag out the tracks instantly but Biab you need to go have a cup of tea between drags.

Steve, I did too! I played it on an original IBM-PC! I believe it was magenta, cyan, black & white! Or it could have been red, green, brown & black! So many choices!

This is by far the best solution! They can keep tweaking the old 32-bit GUI for those comfortable with the past and release a VST that lets me bring RealTracks into my DAW directly!

They'd still need a RealTracks manager to do auto-generation as well as riff selection (like Realband). And they'd need a way for me to enter my chords. But other than that I'd guess about 75% of the BIAB features could be just left out completely!

And a RealTracks VST, if done right, is the killer music product of the decade! I mean, c'mon, they must be working on this, right?

I'm betting they will still be releasing 32 bit for brand new quantum computers, so I wouldn't bet on it.

There was a question posted on a forum about what was the best VSTi for guitar, and I wanted to say it was hands down BB/RB in "Vst" mode, but I already knew what the response would be.

You are spot on them not trying to capitalize on their strengths with a RT/BB VST. If properly done that would possibly make them a top dog in the VST world.

Hello marketing where you at?

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
