Since I do not connect my studio system to the net, even for updates (if I can not download it, the system does not get updated) I really appreciated the ability to go thru & demo most all the styles using the included .wma files. smile

I look forward to the day when ALL the styles have a demo included so an Internet connection is not needed to audition them. grin

This makes it quick to find just the right track to use in my songs. I mainly use BB to augment my original tracks, so this feature makes my life much easier. wink cool

I do believe they are available for DL. Although this is an old thread it does point you to the DLs:

I think they are up to date but you may want to contact PGMusic first to verify.

If it is not available, the pre-made track is downloaded automatically once and and we can save it on disk.

Me on the other hand, I would like the opposite now, I do not like the fact that when we click on Space Bar in Style Picker, Biab downloads or plays by default the real pre-made track, I would like can choose the default action and can decide that Space Bar = play MIDI track.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
