I've upgraded Biab2015 pro to Biab2018 UltraPak. Because I updated from 2015 to 2018 therefore there are many STL and st2 files still left on the BB folder. Can I delete these files ?

That's a good question we haven't run into yet.

I think the answer is going to be to run the cleanup utility again. It's just an .EXE in the /BB/Data folder. But I suggest calling PG Music Support if you have any hesitation or wait for further answers since everything should work as it is for now.

Looks like I was correct. I did some research and found a comment by Peter Gannon about just this issue:

The old installers will put many files in BB folder. Then the user should manually run the cleanup routine again. Either run the bb_cleanup.exe from the bb\data folder or from the help-utilities- menu in BB

They also plan further modifications to make this easier in the future.

Thank you for that info. Yes they are there.
That single Folder, should I just move it or should I run the Clean up again.

You could run Cleanup again; it can’t do any harm. In fact, running old installers will put files in the old folder structure and you have to run Cleanup again.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
