Hi Graham,

IMHO if you are familiar with Cakewalk then I would stay with the Mac. The only thing the 32 bit Realband has over Cakewalk is that it can use native BiaB files. I think Cakewalk is a much better choice then RealBand. YMMV

Also remember that you can use the BiaB VSTi in Cakewalk and possibly Garage Band.

This is just my opinion. I am strictly a Window's user and I have little Mac experience. Hopefully Matt, who uses both PCs and Macs will shine in on this thread.


There is a new wine for seniors. It's made from an anti-diuretic hybrid grape and reduces the number of trips to the bathroom. It's called Pino More!

64 bit Win 10 Pro, the latest BiaB/RB, Roland Octa-Capture audio interface, a ton of software/hardware
