Hi everybody,

on how many computers may I let run the program?

I have got an iMac and a MacBook: Is an installation on both possible?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Best regards.

Norbert

Dear Pipeline,

thanks a lot; good to hear that I may have BiaB also on the road.

And very good that you finally gave me a desired reason to buy my third Mac. I will put it in a buggy.

With kind regards.

With no disrespect to Pipeline i would ask PG because they have started to control the " authorizations " .

I can recall in the Mac Band 2018 version I had to get PG to issue or set up an authorization for a second machine .

However they may have changed the process for the Mac Band 2019 .

Regardless PG is very understanding and more than will to help their customers .

Happy Mac Banding to you Norbert

Says whom? Is there a notice from PG Music somewhere allowing this? I don't see this in the documentation.

https://nn.pgmusic.com/pgfiles/support/misc/manual/bandinabox_mac_2019_manual.pdf

PG Music Inc. License Agreement
CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION OF THIS SOFTWARE. USAGE OF THE SOFTWARE INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

LICENSE
A. The program may only be used on a single machine.

... (and so on for 2 pages)



As a practical matter, I don't see that the license "phones home" like so many do nowadays. Neither have I observed that it checks for itself on the network with UDP calls. When I installed it onto my new iMac Pro a few months ago, there was no conflict with my 2010 before I took it out of service.

I just did a clean install of 2018 onto my laptop so that I can compare it better with 2019 which is installed as an upgrade to 2018 on my iMP and see no conflict. There is a lot of interaction between 2018 and 2019 so, when my hard drive arrives, I will remove the upgrade and do a fresh install of 2019 to see if that goes away.

Thanks for that. It's good to know. Even better that you asked.

It would be nice if the license spelled out what is ok. Something like, it can be installed on x number of stations as long as only one is in use at a time or some such... Many License Agreements do but one should always let attorneys write the language and that's always expensive.

See, I actually do have more than three Macs plus PCs and lord knows what else... Currently, there are four in my office plus a PC but one's a G4 so I don't think that counts anymore nor do the ones gathering dust in my garage...

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
