2017 Everything has all the RealTracks, styles and MidiSuperTraacks released through 2017 plus some tutorials not included with the 2017 UltraPlus, Mega or Pro PAKs. It does not include Xtra Style PAKs 1,2 & 3 released as seperate product during 2017. As far as content, it is one step below the Audiophile edition which includes RealTracks in wave or AIF lossless file format in addition to the wma lossy file format.

So you have almost everything. To obtain ALL the content added in 2018 but not duplicate what you already have, you need the 2018 PlusPAK, 2018 49-PAK, Xtra Styles PAK 4 and video RealTracks sets 3 to 6.

If you do not have Xtra Styles 1,2 & 3 released in 2017 you may want to go for the All Xtra Styles special, it will be less expensive than purchasing them one at a time.

So the PlusPAK is all I need at $99 to upgrade from 2017 EverythingPAK to 2018 UltraPAK? Plus $10 if you want it on a USB drive?

Assuming a purchase before the 31st December?

I can't make sense sorry of the other items mentioned when I look at the PG Music upgrade special offer website.

Yes, but the 49-pack is extra, as is the XTRA styles pack, and the additional Video RealTracks. So if you want "everything", you'll need to add them to your cart.

Be aware, that the PlusPak is not "everything". I it requires that an existing 2017 Ultra or EverythingPak already be installed. It only gives you the new files appropriate for 2018.

If you buy all those things, you will have effectively a BIAB UltraPlusPak (and with the 49-pak, etc, you'll pretty much have most everything - I won't go any further down that bunny trail).

Another to remember is that if you ever have to re-install 2018, you'll have to first start by re-installing your 2017 EverythingPak, and then applying the 2018 PlusPak (and any additional paks you get).

Hi there I own BIAB 2011 and want to upgrade to 2018 ultrapack. Is the price 169 for me? I read something about needing 2017 version to upgrade. Is this true?

I understand that your assumption about $169 is correct.

It costs $149 to go from 2017, or $169 to go from an earlier version.

There are other add-ons such as the 49-pack, XTRA styles pack, and the additional Video RealTracks. These need to be added separately if you wish to purchase them also.

From what I can tell on the "packages" page, yes you would go for the $169 (BIAB 2016 and earlier) upgrade path. Also, don't forget the 49-pack and and XTRA styles packs to give you a more-or-less complete package.

Best bet, though, is to call PGMusic (or do online chat with them) and they can tell exactly what your upgrade path would be.
