Often they will extend it a week or two into January. But! There is no obligation for them to do so, so I wouldn't count on it smile

I always buy my upgrade between Christmas and New Year, and this year will be no different.

They should extend until the bugs are out of the program. Why put a program on the market that is not ready to function and create all the frustration, which kills the excitement level for the end user.

Just sayin'

I think that statement can be said about every single piece of software that’s ever been distributed by and all persons making software since the invention of computers. It is impossible to release anything without having bugs in it because of all the unknown factors involved. How is a piece of software going to behave on 100 different setups without having access to each one? It can’t happen and never will with the current system we have nowadays.
Unless we were forced to just use one piece of hardware and have no access to anything that would upset that system, then maybe you could have a less buggy system. But, again within those parameters, it’s still impossible to be perfect because even within those limits. Each one of those machines will have minors differences in them. So long story short your answer as to why they would release something that’s not ready 100%. Because if they waited for that to happen we never would get it. Just my humble opinion.

The version you purchase does not necessarily dictate that is the final copy of that version you receive.

PG Music have always released patches as further issues are resolved. You would generally always be able to update to the latest available patch for that version. I'm not aware of any situation where that was not possible.

I've asked myself the same, BeatMaster. The addition of the 64 bit version had me just about to pull the trigger. Then I read here about the many problems it's having, including one fatal to my preferred workflow (the 64 bit version isn't allowing the import of audio, according to another post.) To buy now is a gamble that it will get fixed after I pay. I know PG Music is very conscientious about evetually taking care of bugs, but that's no guarantee they'll fix this one in good time.

Your 40% off price i think is a nice way of rewarding the eager early birds helping PG to iron out them overseen bed bugs LoL.

I didn't read anywhere that the discount is a trade-off for the product not working as advertised. Most of us are used to getting discounts such as Black Friday but usually the products are mostly working.

Agree but it is some consolation, Some users who post in defence of the program including the bugs, receive a free copy of Biab, round about January for most posts/Beta testing etc.


Then there are the ones who put there hands in there pockets, to buy with hard earned cash.

You need to look after all your customers as a business Yea ?.

It is very simple folks, don't buy it & wait until next year, or buy it and enjoy the x32 until x64 is working the way you need it to. PG has NEVER let me down, and I have been using since the floppy disk days (remember those?)

Also, I have NEVER heard of this...

"Some users who post in defence of the program including the bugs, receive a free copy of Biab, round about January for most posts/Beta testing etc."

Do you have some proof of this?

He must be talking about the user showcase awards, that is the only program I know that gives out free copies of BIAB.

But that is for contributing songs to the showcase and has nothing to do with "users who post in defence of the program including the bugs", and Beta testers are excluded.

We’ve reviewed the contributions from Jan 1 to Dec 31, 2017, and have based the results on a combination of the following criteria:

-1 great compositions/arrangements/productions
-2 use lots of Band-in-a-Box or RealBand (RealTracks or MIDI)
-3 most contributions
- 4 other contribution to the forum (songwriting tips etc.)
- 5 haven't won before (not an absolute requirement)
-

6 haven't already got a free version from beta testing etc.

Just saying ….I know they are all brilliant at helping. but I and others are paying cash so we deserve a program that works or even an explanation.

Followed by verification of work in progress !!!! Just saying !!.

PG Music News
RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Spanish for Windows is Here!

¡Hay más de 50 nuevas características en Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Hay mejoras en RealTracks (RealTracks Vocal de Sonido más Suave, RealTracks Engrosamiento, RealTracks "Find-a-Sub" y MultiRiffs). La mayoría de los RealDrums ahora tienen RealCharts (con notación de batería precisa). Hay un nuevo navegador de Artistas RealTracks para encontrar información / biografías / enlaces / listas de RealTracks en todos los artistas. Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!
