hi,
just noticed the huge page with Real Tracks updates.
do I really have to download them all to bring my collection (1 - 300, non audiophile Ultra) up to speed, or does the latest 1200 MB "cumulative" patch contain all pre-2017 fixes too ?
http://dl08.pgmusic.com/support/patch/realtracks_jul2017_patch.exe

if not,I would appreciate a definitive, complete list !
same for Real Drums.

thanks,
Rhino

this doesn't answer your question?

If you want to download a cumulative patch that includes all updates since the release of Band-in-a-Box 2017, you can download this larger patch (1200 MB).

EDIT: OK, I guess I see your problem. I can only assume this is a complete back to day one fix of all RTs. But your right, that is not what it says.

exactly - what about the earlier, pre 2017 fixes ?
only guessing, but if you really need several files, wouldn't it be wise to install them in the sequence they were released ?

thanks,

thanks, Andrew.
So that means re-downloading every single Realtrack installer before 2017 then, just to be on the safe side ?
I was planning to use my own installer backups and those of local colleagues, to save 100 GB of bandwidth ...
a full cumulative fixes patch since "Day One" would save you thousands in ISP fees, it seems.
oh well, jDownloader here I come,

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!
