Yes! When you are ordering your Audiophile Edition, just make sure to add the 49-PAK to your order (the shopping cart will prompt this) and your Audiophile will ship with the uncompressed files for the 49-PAK RealTracks!

(Note: the uncompressed 49-PAK option is only available at the time the Audiophile is purchased. If a customer wants to add the uncompressed 49-PAK to a 2017 Audiophile after it's been sent/received, they will need to contact our customer service team to arrange an exchange.)

Has the Style Maker received an update to make it at least equivalent to the Win version? I'd really like to be able to do more with the styles I have. Realtracks sound nice but I work with MIDI. The more I can do with styles and variations of styles the more usable BIAB is to me.

Hi-

I'm sure this has been asked a million times before but I can't find it in the FAQs.
I have BIAB 2016 UltraPak as a hard drive; I have just purchased BIAB 2017 UltraPak also on a hard drive.
How do I install my new version? I know that some files are on the computer hard drive and some are on the BIAB drive but I can't work out which ones.
I hope this isn't a silly question.
Thanks-

Rob.

It's NOT a silly question!

Since you have the 2016 UltraPlusPAK installed (including RealTracks Sets up to #253), you would only need to install the new RealTracks Sets 254-277. Of course, you will also want to install the Band-in-a-Box program too!

We have a pretty detailed FAQ that explains the different choices for installing and using your Band-in-a-Box hard drive that I recommend reading through: http://www.pgmusic.com/techfaq44.htm#47
