I'm using the new BIAB 2018 version and I was interested in a few of the styles that were advertised as new in 2018. One of the styles is called _anarchy (or similar) and another called '_senYear' (senior year) - I can't find these styles in my style picker.

I may have missed some part of the installation but it would be handy to know if these are included in the pro pak before I try to do a fresh install.

Hi Doug,

Welcome to Band-in-a-Box for Windows and the PG Music forum.

Neither _anarchy or _senYear are listed as included in the 2018 ProPAK. I found out by opening +++ this +++ page, then pressing Ctrl + F to open the Windows search feature and finally copy and pasting the style names into the search box.

Hi Gordon,

Those styles use the new 2018 RealTracks, so you'd need to get at least an UltraPlusPAK to get them. If you'd like to switch to an UltraPlusPAK, feel free to give our sales line a call tomorrow and we'll figure out the most affordable way to get it to you.

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
