All these updates I see talking about UltraPak, MegaPack, PlusPak, XtraPak, add-ons, listing the number of tracks, combos, and styles available has my head spinning :-(

So I have a very simple question: for me personally, who decided that $99 was too steep, (and TBH not entirely justified given what was offered), for the upgrade from the 2017 UltraPlus to 2018 Plus, does anything you announce here sweeten the deal for me by adding something at no extra cost above the $99?

Thanks!

The PlusPAK (which includes the new 2018 version and NEW RealTracks Sets 278-300) for just $99 is a great deal ($30 savings during our special - regular $129), and if purchased at this special price during December includes the Free Bonus PAK (to 'sweeten the deal' even more).

Since we're celebrating 30 Years of Band-in-a-Box with our 2018 release, we've PACKED the Free Bonus PAK with the following items:
-10 MIDI SuperTracks
-7 Instrumental Studies
-Video RealTracks Set 1: Pop Balland Band (Video RealTracks NEW with Version 2018)
-40 AmpliTube Presets & 37 Associated Styles
-52 Loops (including including "PercussionFX" and "DrumKit Classic Beats")

A detailed list can be viewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.bonuspaks_2018.htm.

Don't you mean a $30 savings?

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
