Did you update (Rebuild) your Style Picker after the installation, like I proposed earlier? If not, then that's a vital step in completing the process.

No, and no. The Extra styles aren't "included" with anything, they are optional additions. You may most certainly choose to get them, but you don't "need" to.

In my experience there are some styles offered once that may never be available again.
Maybe a license issue with the artist(s), or some other reason.

If you don't have them, it is very possible they are simply not available anymore.

You most likely have received everything currently available, but the compare list in may contain discontinued styles that you 'may have' received in previous years .. though not available now.
I wouldn't focus on getting all styles ever offered, I'd just make sure you have whatever you can get (and bought) and get on to using them.

Some may simply never be offered again .. for various reasons.

Tony,

The xTra style PAKs are available for purchase +++ HERE +++.

PAKs 1 (164 styles) and 2 (161 styles) were released in Auguest, 2016. PAK 3 (160 styles) was released June, 2017, concurrent with the release of Mac 2017. and PAK 4 (150 styles) was released November, 2017, concurrent with the Windows 2018 release. Add all the xTra styles together and you have 635 additional styles.

These styles may use ANY RealTracks (including bonus RealTracks) released through 2017 so you need the Ultra or Audiophile PAK to fully utilize these styles.

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!
