Band-in-a-Box for Windows
Jump to new posts Re: Where to find the offline Styles demos? by biab-user @ 22 minutes 58 seconds ago

I don't have the Ultra PAK. I first upgraded to the Everything PAK and from then on I have upgraded the Pro versions, as I can't see the reason why I need to fork out allot more money than I need to, for little benefit. To upgrade EACH year to that Ultra PAK is simply too expensive. I rather spend that money somewhere else. The most annoying thing upgrading BIAB is the fact that it ALWAYS has a new load of bugs that annoys me no end.

If you have 2022 Ultra pack, it should have all demos of prior versions with exceptions of some extra packs. Perhaps somebody can clarify. "why not make a simple .ZIP file available". I agree 100%.

How many hours are spent on this sort of "Pak" confusion yearly? Users + PGteam There is a menu in BIAB: "What add ons I have", This should be programmed a bit better, so user has a clear understanding of what they have, what is available and exactly what is included in a particular package that they do not have.

A bit of clarity would be nice.

Just finished chatting with Chantelle and didn't get anywhere. I was advised to use the Play with the current chords button this is what do not want... no other help for it, apart to use the URL to manually download EACH demo. Yes I have always purchased the official version of BIAB, with the 2022 being my latest version.

Hi rayc, Beautiful orchestration very rich and well thought out. Your voice lends itself well to it but a little more volume on this one would be nice. The lyrics are interesting. Like others, I find that the piece is a bit long. But otherwise it's a good job. Kindly regard Derochette alias JaniJackFlash

Although I can appreciate the engineering hurdles that were overcome, I'm not sure what to make of this or where this technology is headed. Nonetheless I got a good chuckle out of this stiff humaniod trying to be Ringo. Note that it takes a MIDI file as input which makes sense. Be sure to watch the video.

No you are not "screwed". You mentioned that you have 2022 version. If you officially purchased PG hard drive, I am 99.9% sure they can help you. There is a live chat available now. Start that, explain that you don't see your purchased 2022 in your account. Sometimes checkout process is tricky and doesn't add stuff you bought automatically. Please post back if it was resolved.

I would be very helpful if PG could publish a complete inventory of all RTs and RDs and in what ordinary product PAKs, annual upgrades and xtra, xtra pro, 0 and 49 and other bonus paks they are available in. I simple 2 dimension excel matrix would work fine. This issue is very confusing and probably takes up much time from the users and also may cause users to buy duplicate content because it is impossible to find out how it works.

That's exactly my point. Listening to the new realtracks i found nothing that tickles my fancy & as such worthwhile buying audiophile again. Xtra PRO 2 and 4 had some nice styles regarding folky acoustic stuff, but probably use RTs i already have. Now WHICH ones are they anyway. I really get fed up with the misty information on all this 2023 upping stuff, seems almost a downer. PS i listened to a lot again; some xtra styles sound nice, but as with the earlier bought sets i probably will n

It would be nice to have some insight and transparency into what constitutes "new" RTs and where to find those in those additional packages. Just thinking out loud.

I don't know if there is a method that would allow you to install them now. Possibly this is what might have happened.

ok as this featur may or not come in 2024ff So I just took a day of my time and went through all styles. In the end I have like 1000 favorites now. At least I like them all. I saved it in a user list but now to get to a better and to more distinct selection the only way I see right now is to .. unfavorite all in my list .. then do favorite sort of all to create smaller groups to make a sort of hierarchy of user lists. This will again take days. Does anybody know any better approach ?

Yes, I do have the HD drive that came with the Everything Pak version, but I have had many new version of BIAB over the years and have been installing on newer computers a few times through the need to upgrade to better processing power, so I can't remember what I did to bring the old BIAB across this latest computer. I remember that not long ago I had to contact PGMusic so to de activate a version of BIAB. I do still have the original HD somewhere and it does have an updated version of BIAB..
