Have you download the November 2016 RealTracks update? From the ++ Windows Support Page ++

Quote:
This patch includes RealTracks updates completed during 2016, prior to the release of Band-in-a-Box 2017. If you purchased the Band-in-a-Box 2017 Everything/Ultra/audiophile, you don't need this patch as the fixes are included. A summary of the fixes and improvements is listed below.

Some audio files are updated in this patch, so users with the audiophile HD version can instead download this larger patch (700 MB)

Fixed: Some incorrect Shots assignments.
Fixed: Timing issues with "Banjo, Tenor, Rhythm DixielandFastA-B Sw 165" have been fixed, meaning the playing should fit much better with the other Dixieland RealTracks.

Yep but note if you bought BIAB 2017 (Everything/Ultra/audiophile) you don't need this update and I quote from PG update area:


"This patch includes RealTracks updates completed during 2016, prior to the release of Band-in-a-Box 2017. If you purchased the Band-in-a-Box 2017 Everything/Ultra/audiophile, you don't need this patch as the fixes are included. A summary of the fixes and improvements is listed below."

Yes. Note the date of the update. It's one day before BIAB 2017 was released.

I assume from the release notes that if you remain on the 2016 or earlier or if your 2017 update is UltraPlus or less you want to apply the RealTracks update.

As always, if in doubt, apply the update. It won't hurt anything.

Yes, that's true. My understanding is that it only updates what it finds.

Related: see today's announcement of a new RealTracks update with a bunch of fixes.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
