RealBand 2021 Build 5 is available.

Release notes(build 5, March 16 2021):

  • FIXED - Program would silently crash (quit) when selecting FlexASIO driver
  • FIXED - If changing the song sample rate in Audio Settings and then going into the ASIO drivers dialog, then "resampler in use" or "resampler NOT in use" might be incorrect.
  • FIXED - if Windows Audio input/output drivers had different sampling rates, then the warning message was shown too frequently. It will not be shown once per session, or when recording is pressed.
  • FIXED - You could only resize the track height in the Tracks Window by hovering the mouse over the overview area but not the panel area on the left side of the screen.
  • FIXED - Generated loops would be completely silent
  • FIXED - Print options doesn't adhere to the Bars Per Line in Print Options when "from this screen on" is changed in Notation Window. (Fixed by adding a checkbox setting to Ignore Bars Per Line Markers.)
  • FIXED - When printing, and a Bars Per Line marker exists in 2nd row of notation, then the first row being printed might have the incorrect bars per line.
  • FIXED - When loading in an MGU/SGU, slurs Entered in Band-in-a-Box Notation Aren't Present In RealBand Notation
  • FIXED - When importing an SGU that has drums forced to MIDI, it generates Realdrums instead
  • FIXED - Held Option in RealTrack picker does not work
  • FIXED - Can't save mono wma files (could do so in RB2020 and earlier)
  • FIXED - Load Audio Category Effects does nothing
  • FIXED - Interpret Chords always uses Audio interpretation instead of MIDI
  • FIXED - RealBand sometimes creates an empty / incorrect registry key that confuses the installers

Release notes(build 3c, Jan 7 2021):

  • Fixed - Running 32-bit realband.exe (Version 2020) is now supported.
  • Added - Presets for 64-bit PG DX plugins.

Release notes (build 3, Dec 21 2020):

  • Fixed - when typing in the Comments Window, hotkeys like "r" for record would get triggered
  • Fixed - program would freeze up when Time Stretch and Pitch Shift of Selected Audio Tracks, in the Tracks Window right-click menu, was executed
  • Fixed - program would get an access violation if loading in an MGU or SGU that contained utility tracks. Now the utility tracks will be loaded.
  • New - program will now let you save audio tracks as Utility Tracks when saving to an MGU or SGU
  • New - program can now import floating point 32-bit WAV files
  • New - Cut-time symbol shown instead of 2/2 time signature, if Cut-Time mode is selected in Notation Window
  • Fixed - language strings added
  • Fixed - Save As button - Save Chords Window or Notation to video file, would not always generate the video properly or notify you that it was complete
  • Fixed: "Converting file..." notification during/after a take was kept.
  • Fixed: "Invalid SMTPE Frame offset" notification.

Band-in-a-Box® 2021 Feature: Utility Tracks

Have you ever wanted to use more than 5 tracks when creating your Band-in-a-Box® song? Great news.... with the new Utility Tracks added in Band-in-a-Box® 2021, there are 16 more tracks!

These can be used for audio and/or MIDI! Generate RealTracks to the Utility Tracks where you can listen to AND edit them and view the RealCharts as MIDI. You can also record to these tracks (MIDI or audio), and import your audio for further editing or to harmonize it.

We explain all the great ways to use the Utility Tracks in this video.

Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Mac Review – Users' Dreams Come True

Read all about what "Dr. Dave" Walker thinks of his latest copy of Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Mac with his review, Band-in-a-Box for Mac 2021 – Users' Dreams Come True.

"2021 is a big leap forward to the best Band-in-a-Box for Mac yet! If you have been putting off upgrading, or even if not, NOW is the time to upgrade! And if you haven't got it yet, you owe it to yourself to get Band-in-a-Box 2021.

Maybe the most important point from all the talk about this version is that PG Music is listening to you, their customers. So if you have a feature that you really want in the program, write to them or chat from their web site. Let them know and yours just might be the next feature added."
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thanks again Dr. Dave for your enthusiastic feedback, we're thrilled that you love what we've done with Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Mac!
