I installed 2012 0n my C hard drive, along with Bonus Pak 10, & Bonus Pak 20.. John Jarvis shows 4, Texas Blues Rock shows 0, & New Age Audio With Audio Loops shows 0.. Real Styles with Drum Loops shows 1..
Is this correct, or did I do something wrong.???
thanks in advance.

Hello johnny,

You should have entries in both. If you are installing from a disc with the bonus pak, you should find an installer for the loops and 'RealTracks Bonus Set'. If you have installed those, try pressing the rebuild button in the StylePicker.

Thanks for your reply Andrew.., I downloaded all tracks, & used the Installer. I still get a message some Real Tracks not found e.g. 149 with Pedal Steel. I did a Rebuild but Texas Blues Rock still shows at 0, as well as New Age with Audio Loops. Support told me to re-install the tracks which I did, Installer checked for corrupt files, but non showed up..

Hi,

Check the Bonus10PAK folder on your PlusPAK DVD disc 1... It doesn't sound like you installed those files. If it still doesn't work, please contact us back.

Johnny,

Did you run the separate install in the Bonus 10PAK folder? Sometimes with special add-ons like this, they are not included in the programming of "install BIAB". The add-ons themselves have their own individual installation programs that must be run to install them.

I recall that when I upgraded to 2012, I had to run around 3 (maybe 4) different installation programs to install all aspects of the program.

Regards,
Noel

Excellent. Was the solution something you could share that others would benefit from? Or was it something unique to your system?

Matt, I rewally don't know what it was but they did delete some files, they went into my computer, & did stuff while I sat back & watched. Most of it was beyond my comprehension, deleted stuff, moved some files, Sent me some liks to download & reinstall. Not much I can share, though I'd be glad to if I knew what it was. I think most of it was unique to my system.. But the support I recieved was just awesome..
A great big Thank You to PG Music..
Johnny

They went in and 'did stuff'? I love it: the Wizard has left the building!

Thanks for the followup. I'm glad you're all set and it's great for you to give such a testimonial for PG Music Support.

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
