12. What is the difference between Band-in-a-Box Pro and the Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK?

Windows:

The Pro and MegaPAK include the same Band-in-a-Box and RealBand program engines, however the MegaPAK includes many more Styles, Soloists, Melodists, RealTracks, and RealDrums. Whereas the Pro version comes with about 200 (MIDI) styles, the MegaPAK comes with about 2,000 (MIDI) styles!
Specifically, Band-in-a-Box Pro comes with a basic 'starter' set of Styles, Soloists, Melodists, RealDrums, and RealTracks: It includes 46 MIDI SuperTracks, ~400 MIDI Styles, ~100 MIDI Soloists, ~60 MIDI Melodists, 22 Artist Performances, 21 Nature Sounds and Percussion Loops, 1,000 Dubstep, Modern and Top 40 Loops and the Pro RealCombos (Over 200 RealTracks instruments in 38 Bands!) RealCombos are full bands of RealTracks and RealDrums instruments (no MIDI) in the same style. For example, the Jazz Swing 140 RealCombo includes 5 RealInstruments (Bass, Piano, Guitar, Sax, and Drums) that play at a medium swing tempo. Essentially, RealCombos allow you to hear *some* full bands of RealTracks without having to get the largest Band-in-a-Box package.
The Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK includes everything that the Pro version has plus a lot more. It includes all 2,000+ MIDI Styles, 96 MIDI SuperTracks, over 300 MIDI Soloists, 200+ MIDI Melodists, 62 Artist Performances, 21 Nature Sounds and Percussion Loops and 1,000 Dubstep, Modern and Top 40 Loops. It also includes the MegaPAK RealCombos (Over 460 RealTracks in 60 Bands).
