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.
