I just want a Mac version of Real Band. If you can make a BIAB for Mac, you can make Real Band for Mac. I will gladly pay extra for the 2019 BIAB audiophile if Real Band comes with it.

+1. The feature set of RealBand compliments the features of Band-in-a-Box. I agree it would be great for Mac users to have RealBand as a resource.

I don't want any Mac version of RealBand.

I'd much rather PH focus on making BIAB Mac itself do everything it can do and can potentially do - MUCH better.

Specially now we have a ( half-baked iffy ) piano-roll editing.

I like being able to view in lead-sheet portrait mode and don't really want the typical DAW timeline thing.

What would be better imo would be if PG allowed us to add new separate AUDIO and MIDI tracks - probably only 4 audio and 4 midi parts would be fine.

Let us do as much as possible inside BIAB - and then for the rest - be able to export to a DAW.

one thing that would be greatly helpful would be if BIAB supported Ableton Link. Because that would allow us to work on DAW material AND the BIAB arrangement and have both play in Lock-step.

Alternately or better still - provide ReWire functionality for BIAB to be able to pipe in audio and MIDI into a ReWire compatible DAW.

BiabVST for Mac should solve the problem.
It uses the Band in a Box app silenty in the background same as RealBand.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
