52. Can I use the Windows version of Band-in-a-Box and other Windows products on an Intel-based Mac?

We tested Band-in-a-Box 2006 for Windows on an Intel-based iMac that had Windows XP Home Service Pack 2 installed on an NTFS formatted partition. We also tested many other PG Music products, including PowerTracks Pro Audio 10, the Video Guitar Lesson series, GuitarStar, Master Class programs such as the Jazz Guitar Master Class, Multimedia Performance programs such as the Bach Chorales and Rock Guitarist, Master Solo products such as the Master Jazz Guitar Solos, and NoteMatch. In addition, we tested the use of the Roland VSC-3, Roland VSC-DXi, and Coyote ForteDXi software synths with Band-in-a-Box and PowerTracks Pro Audio, and tested MIDI recording and playback through an external (hardware) MIDI device.

We did not encounter any problems with any of the programs that we tested. There were no problems with playback, and all of the features that we tested worked exactly as they do on a PC with Windows XP. In fact, in some cases we experienced better performance on the Intel Mac than on a PC with similar specs.

Hi Alyssa, I don't have BIAB just yet as I am waiting for the Mac version for 2019. My main interest is in the bundled Real Band DAW that's included and the fact that I prefer using my Mac vs Windows 10 laptop for music. However I found out from the Facebook forum that Real Band isn't supported on Mac OSX. I'm not sure if this is a marketing reason or technical Project Management etc reason. Anyway, Joanne from the FB forum kindly pointed me to this post. After reading it I have a couple of questions -1) was Real Band tested and if so we're there any issues? 2) I've recently read about using a "virtual" Windows environment on a Mac (a few applications available for this). Do you have any thoughts on this ? At the end of the day I may just have to give my Windows 10 Laptop some TLC and invest in some storage etc. If it is not possible to have real band on a Mac with boot camp and Windows or virtual Windows etc. Hope this makes sense ...thanks for any advice provided
