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.

PG Music News
Major VST Support, Hi-Q Instruments, and More Added in the Band-in-a-Box 2016 for Mac Build 143 Update!

This update is free for Band-in-a-Box 2016 users, and adds significant features; AU (audio unit) and VST plugins are now supported, we've added Hi-Q MIDI instruments, and more! Download the Band-in-a-Box 2016 Build 143 update.

There is also a plugins installer which you should download in addition to the new build. Download the MIDI and Audio Plugins installer here.

Summary of changes for build 143 (since build 132) (Sept 28, 2016):

Added: AU and VST plugins are now supported. There is a new Plugins tab on the Mixer window, that allows you to add/edit MIDI or audio plugins on each track. We include the Sforzando VST sample player, along with the PG Music HiQ Instruments.
Added: HiQ instruments have been added. These are high quality MIDI sounds that make the MIDI tracks (both regular and MIDI SuperTracks) sound much better. You can audition and choose a HiQ patch for any track by control+clicking on the track --> "Select HiQ MIDI Patch".
Added: Sforzando is a .sfz sample player made by Plogue that has been customized for Band-in-a-Box and is used to play the HiQ Instrument sounds.
Added: We include AmpliTube, which is a VST Guitar Amp Simulator, and can be used effectively with the Direct Input RealTracks.
Added: A Plugins Options dialog includes an option to scan for VST plugins on bootup and options for how plugin windows are opened, closed, and arranged on the screen. Plugins that are essential to Band-in-a-Box (eg the "Apple: DLSMusicDevice" or "Sforzando") are scanned for regardless of the "Scan for VST plugins on bootup" or "Scan for AU plugins on bootup" settings.
Fixed: StylePicker Options dialog was stuck behind the StylePicker dialog.
Fixed: Opening the lead sheet would cause Band-in-a-Box to crash if the current song had bar-based lyrics.
Fixed: Rendering a video of the chordsheet would sometimes make a corrupt file (eg. no audio can be heard, and the playback is sporadic).
Fixed: When "Display C9sus as C11", "Display 2 as sus2, or "Display sus as sus4 was enabled, it was not possible to enter the chord by typing or using the Chord Builder.
Fixed: There were some inconsistencies in color between the mixer and track radio controls.
