As expected BiaB works fine on the new OS. One thing I noticed is the background for title and style shows an odd purple hatched effect. If you select either it goes back to normal but the effect shows through around the edges. This makes no difference to the operation of BiaB though as far as I can tell.

There is one thing that now looks odd, as Apple have redesigned all of the app icons for a more uniform look. The BiaB icon now looks rather big, but makes no difference to the running of the app.

Logic Pro X and Garageband have also had updates including new content.

I assume you're talking about Big Sur?

Can you attach a screenshot of this visual oddity you're describing?

That's really strange - if you do a factory reset does it help at all? Re: Options | Return to factory settings, and choosing Return All?

In addition, it will help us if you provide your system specifications - please click on the Apple menu in the upper left and select About This Mac, then provide us with the information on the Overview, Displays, and Storage tabs (or even better, take a couple screenshots - you can press Cmd-Shift-4 to select an area for screenshot). These screenshots can be attached to your post, or emailed to support@pgmusic.com

I just erased my MacBook Pro's HD and installed Big Sur (11.0.1). I then installed the latest version of BB. When starting the application, I briefly see the splash screen. I then see a rectangular window with a progress bar that is fully filled. The application then freezes. I have admin rights as a user and installed BB in the default location. Any suggestions?


Specifications:
MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
Processor: 2.5 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Graphics: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB

Pink should be the transparent color in the bmp.
But that is normal with Mac, every single update something don't work anymore and developers have to run behind Mac all the time.
Why the *^%$& can't they just make a MAC that just keeps working with any app 32/64 or even PPC apps.
I hear it day in and day out from users calling me.
If everything is working fine DON'T UPGRADE or UPDATE, don't run behind Apple with their weekly new versions !

It should show like a gif with pink set as transparency:

I just installed BiaB 2020 in Big Sur. Everything seemed fine except for the purple. Then I activated and updated. Now it shuts down immediately every time I try to open it frown

Does it boot up if you run it in "safe mode" (factory settings). To do this, put a text file called safemode.txt in the Preferences folder.

When the program is running, go to the Plugins window, and check to see what third party plugins you have (i.e. other than Apple plugins). Try adding them to the exclude list, and then try running Band-in-a-Box again without the safemode.txt file. Let us know what you find.

How to downgrade macOS from Catalina or Mojave to an older version
You can also run a VirtualBox with an older version
https://appletoolbox.com/need-to-run-32-bit-apps-on-macos-catalina-use-a-mojave-virtual-machine/
or boot from another drive.
I learnt my lesson the hard way too many times.

yea normally I wait for the .1 or.2 upgrade but I hated Catalina to such an extent that I jumped right on it...

I'm not going to downgrade... every other program is working fine... BIAB will literally not even open anymore.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
