This has been an outstanding pak for sure! But I have a question..

The 59 Styles for "Rediscovered" RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks! How are they designated? I THINK I found out how they are, but would like to hear it about it from the horses mouth, as the case may be.... cool

I'm still waiting to hear those extra instruments in "solo" audio demos, as opposed to just within a full band. Can't see any such thing on here yet. And no audio demos for the added Supertracks at all.

As for the "Rediscovered" styles - they simply include one or more RT instrument that until now was not included in any RT style. What's the big mystery here, jcspro40?

There are a couple ways to find the Rediscovered styles. There are two groups of them, Rediscovered MIDI SuperTracks, and Rediscovered RealTracks.

- In the StylePicker, select the "other options" button and select "2017 styles". The Rediscovered styles are from the Set# "Bonus".

- There are demo songs for each of the styles in bb\RealTracks - Demos\Rediscovered RealTracks, and bb\MIDI SuperTracks Demos\Rediscovered SuperTracks.

My Favorite Things - Seemingly Unlimited Flexibility!

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
