Now, now, I don’t see anyone attacking you for telling your truth, just slightly but very respectfully disagreeing with basically everything you say.

And I fully agree with your advice: whoever here has a beef with Apple should go to their forum, speak up and preferably stay there, patiently waiting to be excommunicated, while the rest of us try to keep on the topic raised by this thread.

Speaking of which, I’m running BIAB 2020 with the patch with no issues so far so... thank you PGMusic.

Ps: in case anyone is wondering, BIAB flies on the Mac Mini M1.

If you don't think it's truth I suggest you do what I posted in a previous post and go for a drive and think about it. It's a shame truth has to come the hard way sometimes.
It's always hard for a one David if the mob backs Goliath.

In my version of The Truth, Elhalan (not David) fighting for the Israelis defeated Goliath who was fighting for the Philistines in single combat by shooting him right between the eyes with a green laser from space. It goes to show how many versions of The Truth there can be.

Mythology and pseudo erudition aside, this section of the forum is the tiny corner where Mac users gather to ask for or provide support on their experience with BIAB.

I believe it’s fair to assume that most of us have freely chosen to use Macs (at least the ones that were not inoculated by Bill Gates with a mind controlling micro ship).

That’s probably why it shouldn’t be so surprising that full on toxic and destructive ranting against Apple and its products is not well received in this neck of the woods.

Do I think everything Apple (or any other corporation for that matter) is perfect? Heck no, not even by a long shot. Still it’s the one that, of my own volition, I’ve decided to use.

And this is the community I will keep coming to whenever I need (or can provide) support in my experience with BIAB for Mac.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll go for a drive to think about the David against Goliath conundrum!

At the risk of getting back on topic smile I’ve now run Big Sur/BiaB through all of my typical procedures and all is good.

YMMV but I’m a happy camper and a big thanks to PG Music for all.

You are using Biab and functions/features/BBPlugin NOW !!
You don't seem to mind that they are there now for you to use because I told the truth, ranted, and suggested ideas and solutions !
You have no idea whatsoever of the depth of this.
If I left the forum way back when I came here because uses like you saying that "I'm lying, Biab/RB is fine how it is", you would have F all.
All the stuff developed in Win goes to Mac.
Give me some respect please ! Don't wait till you leave your body.
You have what you have because I stood up and told the truth as I am now, if it's ranting it's to drum the truth home.
Didn't they get rid of Steve then had to get him back, and I'm sure that's what gave him the cancer. The stuff they release is most likely what he has left in the pipeline.
And if I die tomorrow you would still have all these issues in this 9000 view thread again and again, but you will have more features that I have left in the pipeline.

And the BiaB/Big Sur rendering to audio times average out to the same as with Catalina. For those of us that regen the same RT multiple times for DAW comping this a significant consideration.

What?

We absolutely do vote with our wallets. My iMac Pro is a bargain. For some of my work, the other choice was a $50k Maya Box running Win10. Since no one is paying me to run Windows anymore and it’s my dime, I bought what does the job best. I knock out 2–6 projects a week making music and video. When Time=$$$, the bottom line is very important to me.

Only one of my apps is still 32 bit. I have licenses for a number of apps to take its place but haven’t invested the time to become fluent in any of them. Easier to boot from a Mojave SSD and use the old app.

Many of my collaborators use Win7 or Win 10 so I’m not done with it but that’s ok. I did tech support for years and am still pretty good at solving problems when they occur — like nearly every time Win10 updates.

Making music for a living. Life could be worse.

Same. The amount of troubleshooting I have to do for Windows audio settings and issues working here at PG is unbelievable compared to Mac, and this has generally been my experience in the past the few times I've used Windows for some sort of music app.

Oh I agree, the iMac Pro is the best hardware for the job. My Mac Pro is the best hardware for the job. That's why we won't (or can't) vote with our wallets, as we either can't afford alternatives for specific tasks or we don't want to switch back to Windows - thus we get stuck with whatever Apple decides, such as removing 32-bit support, and eventually removing all non-ARM support.

Apple's policies have changed over the years, and I disagree with many of their newer practices. Thus, I have not purchased a new Apple product since my iPhone SE in 2016 and my Macbook Pro in 2012, and I'm not likely to purchase anything in the foreseeable future. I still think the Apple platform is superior for audio production over Windows, but you're welcome to disagree as it is merely an honest opinion.

Pipeline - my suggestion is that if you dislike Apple products that much, you should probably avoid buying them.
