Can someone please tell me where these styles come from - which Pak. I had zero N/A styles with 2017 and just installed 2018 (build 505) with Xtra4 and 49 Bonus. They don't seem to be listed in any of the Xtra paks and I thought I had every style.

Thanks
Tony

They all appear to be from the "2017-16 Misc." set

Here is PG's (Kent) explanation for these N/A styles.

"Those styles have never actually been released, they were just included in the styles list by accident. So there's nothing to worry about, it sounds like everything's installed.
These same ones were showing up in 2017 installations by the way, I'm not sure why you didn't see them until 2018."

Was this 2017-06 Misc pack a purchasable item?
I thought that I had every Extra, Bonus and Misc pack since 2014 but it looks like maybe I missed one.
Looking forward to Kents answer.

Hi Guys,

Looks like those are the new Registration Bonus Styles, which have just been released today (but haven't been officially announced yet).

As long as you've ordered through the website, or registered a product using a purchased serial number, they should be available for download right now.

They're available for Windows and Mac, and work with any 2017 or 2018 package. Just click on My Account at the top of our website, then My Products, and you should see them listed under "Available Downloads".

Thanks
Kent

Thanks Kent

I'm not sure what "Registration Bonus Style" means but I'm sure all will become clear. Anyway, thanks for the extra styles and I now have zero N/A's.

This consists of 10 bonus styles that have been constructed using existing RealTracks, Drums, and Loops available in all Band-in-a-Box packages (2017 and higher) for Windows and Mac.

----------------------------------
_OSMIUM - A hard rock style with a RnB horn section. Also included are electric bass, two overdriven electric guitars, and hard rock drums.

_COOL_IT - This modern cool jazz style offers a new take on jazz swing, combining traditional jazz acoustic piano and guitar with half-time cool jazz bass and drums.

_GRIDLOK - A jazz bebop RealStyle with a trumpet solo and a half-time feel thanks to the bass and RealDrums. Electric piano, acoustic guitar, and a drum loop are also included.

_WHIMSY - This country waltz features a solo-accompaniment piano playing a fancy part. Joining in are held organ, electric guitar, acoustic bass, and Nashville drums.

_HAUNTS - An ultra-down-tempo 12-8 country style with a native tempo of 55 bpm. Pedal steel plays held and haunting notes. 12-string acoustic, electric bass, and brushes join in.

_ACHIEVE - This bright pop style features a big-sounding tom groove in the A section, keeping the beat for electric bass, acoustic piano, electric guitar, and 12-string acoustic.

_BEGONIA - A medium-tempo pop rock RealStyle with a held piano playing in half-time mode. Electric bass, two electric guitars, and Nashville drums join in.

_MONTANO - This style is a fusion of even-8 country and two double-time son montuno instruments. Instruments are baby bass, two acoustic guitars, pedal steel, and drums.

_BLAZZ - A playful combination of blues and jazz featuring a traditional jazz alto sax solo. Acoustic bass, two electric guitars, and Multi-Drums join in.

_BONITO - This modern bossa groove includes RealDrums and a drum loop playing in half-time mode. Bossa acoustic bass and piano play in normal time, along with jazz funk muted guitar.

There still don't seem to be any audio/video demos of these particular "bonus" styles on the Xtra Styles page confused

Hi Icelander,

The Registration Bonus Styles aren't available for sale, and aren't part of the Xtra Styles PAKs, so they wouldn't be included on that page. You'll only find them on your My Products page, with your other download links.

Thanks
Kent

Hmmmm...... As a new user (recently purchased 2018 ultra and 49-pak). I thought I was buying everything available yet I have 655 N/A styles? Is there more I need to buy or did I not install everything?

Sounds like you need to update your Style Picker
smirk
Yes, you not just install the things, you need to also go into the program and basically inform it that you installed the things. And that's where updating the Style Picker comes into it.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

Introducing... RealTracks Artists David Wise & Shelly Justice!

For the first time ever Band-in-a-Box® can generate backing vocals with some amazing "oohs" and "aahs" vocal arrangements with RealTrack Set 278: Shiny Vocals Oohs and Aahs! Add male or female parts by renowned Nashville vocalists David Wise and Shelly Justice, and you'll LOVE the results!

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

Fixed: Potential crash on exit (having to do with the DLL attempting to free up a dynamic array that was passed to it).
