I have BIAB 2012 PlusPak + 10Pak and I'm trying to use the _SMOSOUL style - which call the Praise and Worship Uptempo 16 RealDrums. But in my bb/drums folder there is no P&W Uptempo folder. From what I can tell this should be a part of RealTracks 151.

Anyone else with a similar config have the P&W Uptempo folder?

Did you try going into the Realdrum selector and seeing if the drums are there?

1. right-click on the "Drums" track and then select "Realdrums in Style" from the menu that pops up.

2. Now click on the header "Realdrums Style Name" to sort the drums alphabetically and scroll down to "P" for "Praise and Worship" and see if the uptempo 16-beat is listed.

Thanks and yes I have tried that. I just don't see it in there. I reinstalled last night from the DVDs - I had previously upgraded with the downloads. Maybe I'm missing something but I thought the PlusPAK was suppose to have this.

I'll contact support.

Hello TS,

PraiseWorshipUptempo16 was included in RealTracks Set 117 "Praise and Worship", which was released with Band-in-a-Box 2011 last year.

Thanks and I got the same response from Support. I have gone back to my 2011 and 2011-5 downloads folder and I see in 2011 the following:
Realtracks 1-121 update dec-06-2010 to feb-04-2011
Reatracks 1-121 update feb-04-2011 to may-03-2011

Also have:
Realtracks mega 2011 1 through 3
Realtracks pro 2011 1 and 2

All is installed but when I select "what add-ons do I have" it states that I don't have realtracks 102 through 121 installed.

I'll reply back to support with this info.

Video - Using Drag-and-Drop in Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac

One of the GUI Enhancements added with Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac was to the Drop Station.
Now a folder opens after copying to drop box, Drag Drop or another folder.

We've made a short (7:23) video showing how to use Drag-and-Drop in Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac, here.

There are even more video resources available that touch on the Drag-and-Drop feature!

Making Medleys with Band-in-a-Box

RealTracks Medleys are special groups of RealTracks that play in sequence. This tutorial shows you how to make your own medleys with the RealTracks feature in Band-in-a-Box:

When it comes to Medleys, we don't stop there! With a previous release of Band-in-a-Box Version 2008 for Windows, we added a feature called the Medley Maker. This feature is great tool if you are wanting to make a medley of various songs you've created with Band-in-a-Box!

Inside the Medley Maker, which is accessed through the Song Form [AABA] button (the one with the pencil), simply select the songs that you want, and Band-in-a-Box will make the medley for you. A medley is not simply joining songs together - a good medley uses a "transition" area between songs to introduce the new style, key, and tempo. The Medley Maker automatically creates a nice transition area for you, writing in chords that would smoothly transition to the next song, style, key, and tempo!

The 2008 New Features Video is available here:

Video - Instant Preview Feature in Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac

#TBT - The 2002 Release of PowerTracks Pro Audio 8!

In June of 2002 we released PowerTracks Pro Audio 8. There were more than 30 new features for seamlessly integrated MIDI/Digital Audio music production released at that time - take a look at the video highlighting the "new" version:

The "New Features" released with PowerTracks Pro Audio 8.0 Included...
New 32-bit Version! PowerTracks Pro Audio 8.0 has been totally rebuilt as a full 32-bit engine for seamless operation in Windows 98/ME/2000/XP.
Amazing New Chord Wizard! Load in any MIDI file, PowerTracks MIDI sequence file, or even a work-in-progress, and the amazing New Chord Wizard will intelligently figure out the chords and display them in the Notation Window and the new Chords Window. Chord symbols are an essential component of playing by ear, so most musicians who play by ear should find this new feature indispensable! The New Chords Window displays the chords in a selectable font and size, and is fully editable. It also has part markers (compatible with Band-in-a-Box) so that you can easily mark sections of your sequence.
Real Time DirectX Effects! PowerTracks Pro Audio 8.0 supports real time DirectX effects for live playback and monitoring, and even includes loads of great effects for free! PowerTracks also has real time DirectX plug-in groups in which up to four chained plug-ins can be used at once. Effects groups can be saved and loaded along with their settings, making it easy to use the same settings with multiple projects. The postproduction DirectX window also supports effects chains with up to four plug-ins.

FREE DirectX Plug-ins!
Awesome Audio Features!
Updated MIDI Features!
Enhanced Notation Features!
...and (of course) MUCH MORE!

Emailing Your Band-in-a-Box Song

One of the many new features we added with Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac was the "Email Song as Attachments" feature, which will come in handy - we promise!

The Email Song dialog allows you to choose what files you want to email:
- the song (.MGU or .SGU)
- the style (.STY)
- the extended style (.STX) (if any)
- a rendered audio file (choice of AIFF, M4A, WAV)
- Audio track (if any)
- Performance track (if any)
Pressing the [Send Email] button will launch your default mail application and prepare a new message with files attached.

You can also email a Drop station file. After you drag a track button to the Drop station, right-click on the Drop station and select the Email the drop station file menu item.

Check out the 2015 New Features video clip (@ 44 min): and Tobin will show you how!

When we approached Tony to thank him for making such a great video, he was more than happy to make a Video Testimonial for us to share!
