It seems like yesterday we introduced a midyear ".5" release for Band-in-a-Box for Windows, but it was back in 2007! Band-in-a-Box 2007.5 was released in June 2007, and included some great new features & enhancements!

RealDrums Enhancements - RealDrums were released with Version 2007, so when 2007.5 came out there were a number of improvements, including:
-WMA files - faster and smaller files, with great quality!
-RealDrums variation with each "play."
-Customizable Drum Fills.
-RealDrums "Developer Mode."
...and more!

Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements
-Better Chord Detection
-more chords per bar detected
...and more!

‘Remix’ Features
Remix an existing MP3, by adding a BB style to the MP3!

...and more!

A full list explaining the new features added with 2007.5 can be viewed at

Anyone here remember the bouncing .5 that used to be on the homepage?!?!?

Thanks for the trip back. This version was memorable because it was the last version before RealTracks, which took all of us by surprise.

do you have any idea if Band in a Box 2007 is running on Windows 10?

Thanks for helping!

Welcome to the forums.

Please ask your question in only one forum. Don't repeat the same question multiple times in multiple forums. This is confusing. Your question will be answered even if you post in one forum.

My advice: Don't purchase 2007.5. If you have issues they will not be easily resolved. Purchase 2018.

I agree with Videotrack. I also respond on one of your other posts. Trying to run 2007 today on Windows 10 is potentially just going to give you problems that no one is going to be able to help you with.

New Video - Installing Band-in-a-Box® from the Flash Drive Tutorial

When you order directly from us, there's an option to have your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK installation files sent to you on a flash drive (instead of DVD).
(this option appears during the check-out process)

We've created this handy tutorial video to walk you through the installation process:

Guitar Riffs Solo Lesson - YouTube Find (EricBlackmonGuitar)

Check out EricBlackmonGuitar's latest video, QUIK LICKS #14 Guitar Riffs Solo Lesson EricBlackmonGuitar HQ, where he not only teached a great guitar riff, but he also repeats that lick over a Band-in-a-Box backing track... what a great way to show how Band-in-a-Box is ideal for backing tracks!

Thank you Eric!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 - Cleaned-up BB folder!

It's the first day of spring today, which means it's time to start spring cleaning!

We cleaned up the BB folder with our release of Band-in-a-Box® 2018. Over the years, this folder has been growing - there were up to 10,000 files in there! We've fixed this and put the files into various folders. This is done with a cleanup routine. The cleanup normally happens automatically during installation, but you can run it manually by selecting the main menu Help | Utilities | Run Cleanup routine.

The cleanup routine does the following:
-Moves Styles files (.STY/.STX) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Styles.
-Moves Soloists files (.ST2/.XT2) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Soloists.
-Moves various Demo folders to C:\Demos.
-Moves various songs and lessons folders to C:\bb\Songs and Lessons.
-Moves various files essential for running Band-in-a-Box to C:\bb\Data and C:\bb\Data\Lib.
-Moves various preferences files to C:\bb\Preferences.
-Moves tutorial demo songs, program manuals (.pdf), and the help file (.chm) to C:\bb\Documentation.

Oliver Gannon Interview - Appointed to the Order of Canada!

Oliver Gannon (Peter Gannon's brother), was appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition for "his achievements as a musician" on December 29, 2017!

Oliver recently sat for an interview with CBC's Hot Air host Margaret Gallagher - read a summary and listen to the interview at

'I don't know ... why they chose me. But I'm very glad and I'm not giving it back'
-Oliver Gannon

To be clear, and avoid any confusion, there are two brothers: Peter Gannon is the "Band-in-a-Box" PG Music guy, and Oliver Gannon is the jazz guitarist who just won the Order of Canada.
