I have an EverythingPAK which won't install properly on my laptop. So if I run the program from the USB Drive and purchase the PlusPAK $99 2018 upgrade on USB flash drive is this a valid combination?

Does BIAB full program need to be installed on the PC for the PlusPAK USB flash drive upgrade to work?

Thanks...

You should be able to update your 2017 USB with the new 2018 files and continue to run it from the external drive.

You can install the contents of the 2018 PlusPAK directly to your 2017 EverythingPAK hard drive, and it will transform it into the 2018 EverythingPAK.

If you want to run your 2018 PlusPAK/EverythingPAK combination from the hard drive instead of the laptop, there's an option for the following once you plug in your drive: (taken from our FAQ page)

-First, double-click on the Band-in-a-Box® Setup.exe file on the root level of the hard drive. It gives you the following installation options.

-Choose Option #2 - Install Band-in-a-Box® on your computer hard drive, but leave the RealTracks and RealDrums on the USB hard drive. This requires more hard disk space, about 2 to 4 GB. In addition to the plugins and fonts, this will install the Band-in-a-Box® and RealBand programs to your computer's hard drive, and allow you to run the programs from there, as if you had installed them from a DVD. This is also useful for upgrading an existing version of Band-in-a-Box® that you have installed on your computer.

There is information on some additional installation options available at http://www.pgmusic.com/techfaq51.htm#163

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!
