Every new BIAB version adds a XTRA style pack. Now we have four XTRA packs.
In the stylepicker, the styles relative to a XTRA pak are just labelleled 'Xtra PAK' in the Set# column.

I think it would be worthwhile for the users to better identify where these styles come from.
So rather than having the 'Xtra PAK' label, we could have Xtra PAK1, Xtra PAK2...

It is simple to implement, and it is time to do that now, because there are not so many Xtra PAK so not so much extra work would be required.
It adds also more professionalism in the general management of BIAB data.

Hooray!

Definitely +1

That naming convention continues to generate problems, which will only get worse.

Thanks A-David.
That is 'simply' common sense, rigor and organization.

I just hope it could be implemented in a next patch.

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

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!
