61. Can I use the Windows version of Band-in-a-Box® and other Windows products on an Intel-based Mac?

We tested Band-in-a-Box® for Windows on an Intel-based iMac that had Windows XP Home installed on an NTFS formatted partition. We also tested many other PG Music products, including PowerTracks Pro Audio, the Video Guitar Lesson series, GuitarStar, Master Class programs, Multimedia Performance programs, Master Solo products, and NoteMatch. In addition, we tested the use of the Roland VSC-3, Roland VSC-DXi, and Coyote ForteDXi software synths with Band-in-a-Box® and PowerTracks Pro Audio, and tested MIDI recording and playback through an external (hardware) MIDI device.

We did not encounter any problems with any of the programs that we tested. There were no problems with playback, and all of the features that we tested worked exactly as they do on a PC with Windows XP. In fact, in some cases we experienced better performance on the Intel Mac than on a PC with similar specs.
