Though my computer uses Windows, I've seen Mac users post that RealBand is not available for Mac. I'd like for our Mac mates to have the advantages RealBand offers.

Thank you for that, Jim! I wholeheartedly agree, especially since we Mac users pay the same price without getting RB.

It would be great if the good folks at PGMusic could at least come up with a version of RealBand for Mac even if it doesn't necessarily have all the same features. Some things may not translate well from pc to Mac. The DAW plugin mode works great for me with Logic Pro X, but it would be nice to have a "MacBand" with BIAB integrated into it. Running natively, without having to resort to BootCamp or Parallels.

real band in windows just uses the actual band in a box app bbw2.exe to generate all the tracks up so basically they only need to make the daw front end "realband.app" - it will be more stable and reliable than the windows delphi one that is a bugger for crashing. Yes they are paying the same money with less features than windows and no real band.

I have a Mac and have never heard of RealBand until I read about it heard, but what I do is just bounce the individual track into Pro Tools and edit them from there. I do understand them most people want the ease of creating a chord progression with in RealBand and having the .WAV files created automatically inside it, but I don't mind that extra step it takes to import them into Pro Tools.

Yes please!!!

I would either like RealBand for Mac, or more features in BIAB to allow me to freeze performances for certain bars and not for others. It's very frustrating to lose a great performance because you decided you wanted to add some new chords or even just to change a single chord.

Doing it the hard way, by exporting several different versions of the song into my favorite DAW and then COMP-ing all the tracks is really a tedious job.

Thanks Jim, as replied to Pianomann's similar post, we are not presently developing RealBand for Mac. However, the vast demand and continued requests have not gone unnoticed!

Thanks again to all for your suggestion and +1s.

I don't care if Mac users get a lite version, I want to try it out and see how it works. I may recommend it to people.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
