That never works for me either and I'm in the same time zone. I have found the staff very helpful on the phone and with email follow-up.

So the answer is 'no' to a 64 bit upgrade? No mention of it in the release pitch. If that's the case I'm afraid this is a deal breaker for me given the trajectory of the Mac operating system. I'll cross my fingers for the 2019 release.

Hi Andrea,

It sounds like you added an "Upgrade from 2017" option to your cart. BUPR is the Pro upgrade from 2017, and BUPS is the Pro upgrade from 2016 or earlier. You can remove the BUPR from your account and only order the BUPS.

Thanks
Kent

One thing I will say after just getting it today and trying it out, I wish the app icon looked different than the 2017. I am confused on which one I'm using.

If you right click the Band-in-a-Box.app > Show Package Contents > BBAppIcon.icns Open with Preview > Edit > Colors (edit all sizes and save)

Or right click Band-in-a-Box.app > Get Info, now drag the icon below (or any other icon of your choice) onto the icon in the Get Info window.

Same here..... BIAB2018 appears to be a "milking the (cash)cow version"

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!
