when PG finally get around to releasing an OSX version of this - where there is some very bog-standard expected behaviour for how an AudioUnit plugin instrument or VST instrument or MAS instrument or drum machine is supposed to behave....
........PG - please code the plugin so it can output audio directly wi real-time into: - on choice - either a STEREO master-mix audio stream - or a MULTI-CHANNEL output for EACH backing instrument and track in BIAB.

Being able to just drag and drop individual BIAB instrument tracks into audio tracks in the DAW is a nice-to-have. but if one has to keep doing drags and drops EVERY TIME one makes any change to the chord progression - or changes style - then this drag-and-drop business
is just a workflow-hampering pain in the neck.

This is the expected behaviour of a plugin. Not the fudge KLUDGE - half-arsed attempt that the Windows version has right now.

The latest Win version sends and plays back in sync through the BiabVst to the DAW audio/midi without the drag of having to drag every track to preview it in sync to you existing tracks.
Just to be able to preview each of the 7 MulltiRiffs in sync to you existing tracks in the DAW is great !! if you can't find one to fit in that 7 just hit generate and presto another 7.

It will give Mac users RealBand in their DAW of choice.

ReaTrak for Reaper is made to integrate Biab and BiabVst/AU into Reaper DAW,
it will get the chords from the app or the plugin and bring them into Reaper as chord regions. (thanks to Reaper's API's)
www.reatrak.com

You can ask to join the Mac beta testing, Adar the vst programmer is great at listening, responding, implementing fixes, improvements and new features.
A lot of uses who use Biab expect it to be exactly the same with all the million and one functions and complicated learning curve but I think the plugin should be as simple to use as possible. The idea is it is designed for DAW users that do not, can not or will not use Biab so you need to get the mind set out of Band in a Box auto accompaniment application as if it never existed. How many other Plugins can produce world class session musician tracks directly in your DAW ?

It is fair enough if you want the actual Biab app as your VST but then I suggest you get them to add ReWire as this would be ideal.

I really think they should of called it another name and not reference "Band in a Box", PG Session Tracks Pro VST, PG Studio Tracks Pro VST........

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
