There are now over 500 RealTracks in 300 Bands in the Band-in-a-Box® 2018 MegaPAK! Take a look at all the RealTracks & RealDrums in the MegaPAK here.

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?

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!
