Hello to all forumers!
Little issue when trying to install RealTracks here: software won't let me install them on a separate SSD drive (I'm trying to save space on the laptop). I get a message saying that they can be installed only on the disk that is running OS X.....

Many thanks to all!!
PS: I'd post an image showing the message I get when trying to install but can't find the option to copy/paste image from my laptop....

Install it where you can then just move the RealTracks and Drums folders to the SSD then set the new locations in RealTracks Prefs and RealDrums Prefs. If you are installing from a usb drive just select the option to use RealTracks from USB drive, then copy the 2 folders to the SSD.

Shift-Command-4 saves screen shot to desktop.

Cool!!!
Thanks for the tip!

One moment... I get the first advice about installation method. That's cool.

Concerning the "set the new locations in RealTracks Prefs and RealDrums Prefs"
Where exactly do I go to do that?
+
"If you are installing from a use drive just select the option to use RealTracks from USB drive, then copy the 2 folders to the SSD."
.....??

Thanks again!

Click on the RealTracks icon > Prefs
Click on the RealDrums icon > Prefs

You should have a similar installer as the Win one below, select the 2nd option.

Fat chance....not working!
...I know about Shift-Command-4, but when I try to post the image on the forum it only gives me the option to insert from a url, not from my laptop...

Basically I have a very large number of "N/A....etc"' RealTracks that I can listen to with the "preview" kind of button but when I point BAIB to them don't actually "come up" at all.
Here's the message I get: "42 RealTracks have r*.st2 files in the BB Soloist folder, but no RealTracks in the folder /Volumes..../Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks.Either install RealTracks again, or point......"
BUT they ARE there!

To attach pic click the File Manager under the posting section.
Move the RealTracks and Drums folders to the SSD then click Rebuild button in the RealTrack and RealDrums Pickers.

Ok,
So I finally had some free time and ..managed!
BUT...: I have a very large number of styles that are shown as RT N/A (example: Style Picker + Clapton + Change the World = (RT n/a when trying to apply the "CHANGE" style.
If I select "Open style from disk" CHANGE.sty IS there! I select it and get message in yellow box saying I don't have real tracks and drums for this style!!!
How do I get them?

Similar problem when trying to rebuild RealTracks. I get this long message saying basically: 95RealTracks have r*.st2 files in the BB Soloist fold but no RealTracks in (SSD) Either install RealTracks again or point..etc

What do I do?
It's driving me nuts (excuse my french)!

Thanks again!
I actually have the latest update

But...., something funny (by the way, I installed from usb): I had BIAB installed on laptop, no latest update.
Everything was fine.
Installed on external drive and copied the EXACT same folders/files I had on laptop + UPDATE. And some styles I was using (one which was a funky latin Santana sort of style) would not come up on the new install with the update.
So I reinstalled the same version I had on laptop (no updates). Now I get the funky/latin etc style but NOT the CHANGE (and others).....
....maddening!
Just checked: the folder you mention (Bass, Electric, Soul70sA-B Ev16 100 is in fact in RT folder, but I had to find it using a little OS X App called Easyfind, because if I open the actual RT folder mentioned I only see a series of BS ones...)
What's going on?.....

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.
