I recently upgraded to Band in A Box 2018 but I'm not sure I got everything. Example, when I sort the Styles from the Style Picker button by date, For a date of 2017 I only see 5 styles of RT 281 and 37 BONUS styles. Is this right? And, none of the BONUS styles work because it seems there are no instruments found to support them.

Now I'm hoping that sorting by date is NOT the correct way to see if I installed all of the new items I was supposed to get with the 2018 upgrade. I've installed the software twice....once from the downloaded files and then once again from the actual discs when they arrived and I always get the same thing.

Can someone tell me how I can check to make sure all of the new files are actually there and also why none of the bonus tracks are working???

Thank you so much for your help!

Welcome to the forum.

The first thing you should do is make sure you are up to date. Build 508 is the latest. Go to the grey Support tab, above.

There were problems identifying some styles in the early versions on BIAB 2018.

I downloaded and installed the latest build and that did add many new styles. But...I seem to be missing half of the instruments for each one. So...good news, I added many new styles....bad news....the individual instruments are missing?

I also did a rebuild too. I see I don't have any of the OOOhs and Ahhhs...they all say N/A. Were they supposed to come with the 2018 upgrade?

Just taking a step back for a minute so that I can get a clearer picture...

What version of BIAB did you have before the update (both package and year)?

For example: ProPak 2016, UltraplusPak 2017, etc.

When you say you 'upgraded', what was the package deal that you purchased to allow you to upgrade?

Could that be part of the problem, it doesn't sound like an Ultra does it?

I went from Band In A Box 2016 to 2018 and it cost me $74.00. Here is a screen shot of what's going on.

I wasn't able to view that item, as it looked for a Wordpress account.

I looked at the posted package prices and the $74 price quoted is the $69 upgrade cost from 2016 ProPAK to +++ 2018 ProPAK +++ with $5 postage for the hard copy.

+++ THIS +++ list of combos and RealTracks does not include the vocal RealTracks.

The vocal RealTracks are not included in the 2018 free bonus.

Gentlemen, I really appreciate your patience with me! I think I have attached a file that shows some of the problem. Most of the new styles show an N/A in front of them which indicates I'm missing many instruments.

I'm wondering -

1. What did I get for my $75
2. How do I purchase the missing files?

That's something that only PG Music staff can answer. You need to contact them. If you have a look under the the "Support" link at the top of the web page, you'll find a number of different ways to make contact.

One thing to keep in mind is that the ProPak is PG Music's entry level Band In A Box package. The package that contains the most comprehensive collection of Realtracks, Realdrums and Styles is the UltraPak (hence why it is more expensive).

Below is the link from Jim's post above. If you click on this link, you can access an overview summary of the differences between each version of BIAB.

http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.pro.htm

Simply click on the the different tabs I've labelled 1, 2, 3, 4 to see the variations between packages.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Fldrummerman,

If you're interested in getting the rest of the styles and RealTracks, please call us at 1-800-268-6272 and we can exchange your order for an UltraPAK. We'd charge the $100 difference + $15 shipping to your credit card and send you everything on a USB hard drive.

This would get you around 2500 RealTracks (including the Oohs and Aahs), compared to the 300 that come with the Pro package you purchased.

Thanks
Kent
PG Music

You got a "lite" version, being marketed as a "pro" version. There is nothing professional about lossy RealTracks, in which over 88% are missing. js

Edit: I'm not trying to take away from the professionalism of the parties involved, it is all fine and dandy, but I just think that the product is mislabeled.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
