Have a look at Ardour Win/Lin/Mac https://community.ardour.org/download
Harrison MixBus uses the Ardour source http://www.harrisonconsoles.com/site/mixbus.html
What would be easier modifying Ardour source to work with Win bbw2.exe and a Mac bbw2.app as Realband does or reprogram RealBand to Win Mac 32/64 or leave it as it is or ReWire (in progress) and/or a VST that uses Win bbw2.exe and a Mac bbw2.app ???

This might not be a bad idea after all, this way the Mac users will get a 64 bit Realband. But I know it would be a pain in the @$# after all the writing that went into RealBand.

I had Harrison Mixbus several years ago when it first came out and honestly I don't remember my specific reasons - been awhile - but I do remember not liking using Ardour. Maybe it's better now.

I've been using Mixbus for several years now.
At first it was kind of off and on, but for the last two years, it has continually improved to the point that I don't use anything else.

The main thing that got me was the sound. It colors the sound pretty much the same as a Harrison Console would.
I took audio from Reaper and from Samplitude 10, and loaded it into Mixbus with no processing of any kind and was blown away.
Could you get the same sound with plug-ins? Probably, if you have the skill and the time, and the right plug-ins.

I render Real Tracks from Real Band and load them into Mixbus and they sound great.

Thanks for that, I got Mixbus some time back when it was half price or less I think ? but haven't really tried it out so I will have to do that soon.

Found it, Larry put me on to it DontCrack offers Harrrison Mixbus @ $19.99 $79

Been using it since it was beta off and on over the years, and flat out hated Ardour because it felt so ProTool-ish, but LOVE the sound of Mixbus layer on top of it, so I also just run my Stems thru it at the end of a mix and leave it at that.

With V5 I can finally work with it without hating it, but personally I don't see me using it only for mixing....tho the Harrison plugins flat out rock.....

**sigh** LOL!

Yes you're right it sounds great without touching a thing.
That could be the new RealBand.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
