I noted the 325 build number. Very confusing - if something changed it should get a new build number, that is the purpose of the build number system, to let you know something changed. I hope PG gives new build numbers even if the change is only a single item and doesn't do anymore of these non updated updates.

Peter said in another thread that BBW.EXE is not changed in this update. I just wanted to warn people that it might give them pause at first.

Just updated to this build, but when I go to Help/display program manual, the pdf is still BB2011 (not 2011.5 as stated in the update) Is this an oversight I wonder?

I think you are correct. It looks like the program manual and the program update manual links from within BIAB Help are still linking to version 2011. This newest patch did not update BBW.EXE, so perhaps it needs to in order to fix those two links.

The actual PDF files for the manuals for 2011.5 are in your /BB folder, though. You can just go and read them directly.

Note that the Help Index and Topic Search from within BIAB has been updated to 2011.5. In the Help, Topic Search main screen, you will also see a link for the 2011.5 new features. So there is help available for the newest version.

Reply,

First make backup files of both 2011 and 2011_5 pdf's.
Then rename 2011_5 to 2011.

Works just fine..

This will get you by until next update.

Good idea. In the meantime, I've sent the problem in to Support.

Thanks Matt, but in C:/bb/PDF Manuals folder, my manuals only go as far as BB 2010.....no 2011 or 2011.5. Could the later manuals be somewhere else?

That's a puzzle. You might need to contact PG Music Support.

Assuming you installed BIAB always to the default folder of C:/BB then you should have these files:

Band-in-a-Box 2011 Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011 Upgrade Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011_5 Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011_5 Upgrade Manual.pdf

I do not have such a folder as /BB/PDF Manuals. All these files are in the /BB folder. Perhaps you could search your hard drive to see where they might be?

I was making the assumption that the files you need came in the update. This may not be true; they may have come during beta testing. Support will know.

mal12345,

Just trying to help, not fault.
I actually started downloading the wrong update and
cancelled it.
Then grabbed the current one.

Check out your stylepicker top right of page.
Is the Web Demo button there ?
If not you may have grabbed the wrong update like
I did.

If Web Demo button is there then like you said the new PDF's are not there.

Good luck,

Seeker

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
