Hi,

I frequently get the error message: "you do not have the RealTracks that is required for this style or solo".

I have the UltraPlus PAK for Mac, and in ~/Applications/Band in a Box/Real Tracks/ I see 990 folders, each folder having 24 .bt0 and 24 .m4a files.

Is it possible that there are styles that I don't have, or perhaps I've done something wrong in the installation?

Are there other explanations or ways to check?

Many thanks for your help.

Just to add, I have the .dmg files for RealTracks 01 to 277.

Is this all of them? I'm wondering if perhaps I could have missed installing 1 of them (there are 15 files) - is there an easy way to check this (since each .dmg file has different styles, with a non-straightforward mapping between RealTrack number and style).

Also, just to confirm, I have the latest Mac build (184 released on Nov 2).

Again, thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum. In the Windows version of BIAB, we would go to the Options menu, What Add-ons Do I Have. Look for something like that on the Mac and you'll see a complete accounting.

If you have the Ultra-Plus Pak it's likely you don't have all possible real-tracks require for the styles.

As mentioned, check in the What Add-ons Do I Have item.

Also, if you can provide more detail of one of the styles you try unsuccessfully, we might be able to confirm further.

Welcome also to the forums.

Wendy is right; the UltraPak is supposed to have all the RealTracks except any bonus paks. I'm thinking some of the RealTracks were installed to the wrong place? We need more info to help.
