Hi Callie, i bought the AP last December 2nd .... with the 49-PAK. Did one had to pay for it separately back then? F

I think the timing of the free inclusion might be related to after the Sale special pricing finished.

Still it is not a good look for those that actually showed faith in PG. Why would you bother? I have changed service suppliers for the same attitude. Loyalty should be a two way street.

Considering misleading sale videos with those realtracks as mentioned suppose to be included in the realtrack sets (but were only available as 49pak tracks).
It was left to be for sale for extra pocketmoney and now there is an unwinding.
I'm curious about previous purchases/refunds.

Missing realtracks topic

Anyway PGmusic thank you for correcting this as an update.

[Edit] Spoke to soon I think. I can't seem to find the tracks yet for 2019 ultrapak update.

Thanks all!

That's how I read it too, Trev.

If I recall correctly, no-one has been disadvantaged. The special deals for the Ultrapak, Ultrapluspak and Audiophile versions in December were much cheaper than the current full prices (even allowing $49 for the 49BonusPak which is now included free with those three purchases).

REally, I have been disadvantaged: bought the PLUS pak upgrade from 2018 BIAB, at $$ 30 less than the "regular" offering, but paid full amount $$ 49 for the 49-PAK: now the PLUS pak sells for $$ 30 more, but with the FREE 49-PAK that is worth $$ 49. So really I wasted $$ 19 on my own. Not so pleasant, really!

Next time I'll wait for the sales-period to finish, granted!

All the best

Antonello

Noel, it's my fault!

The next time I will make sure to read the post better!

Only now I realize that the 49-PAK is free only for larger packages, while those who buy the plus-PAK like me to upgrade from version 2018, still need to pay $$ 49 for it.

All the best!

OOPS I made a mistake here!! I purchased the PlusPAK Upgrade and now that I check and recheck one still has to pay $49 for the 49-PAK so all is fair.

Ah, so if I'm reading this correctly, by being one of the early upgraders, I've actually missed out on stuff that later upgraders received, specifically the 49 Pak?

I looked at My Products just now and it shows that I got a 2019 0Pak, which was a much scaled down version of the 49 Pak, and which is missing some styles that I want that the 49 Pak has.

I'm a bit miffed by all this marketing nonsense. In 2017, I bought an "Everything Pak," which, as it turns out, didn't really include everything. I mean, say what? When did the definition of "everything" change? And now I find that the Ultra Pak I'm paying for (yeah, I went with the 90-day option) doesn't include everything that it seems like it should -- just because I took advantage of a sale. No, I'm not entirely happy about this, especially since v2019 doesn't perform nearly as well on my machine as 2017 did (I skipped 2018).

The terminology that is used to describe the packs has always been associated with some confusion. Two years ago this was raised with the company and they changed some naming conventions, but this still really didn't clarify. The basic entry-level pack is named as the 'Pro Pak' which I still find misleading.

My understanding is that the 49-Pak was not included with the discounted special pricing, but was included after the discount ended. Also it is only included now if you purchased the Ultra Pak or higher. Do you have the Ultra Pak or above?

I guess I don’t understand why there would be any fuss. PG Music offered well-publicized sale prices for a month, then extended them until January 15. Although prices then went back to normal, they now include for free what was a $49 upgrade. It’s as if the sale prices continued.

Buying BIAB is a bit of ordering a new van in the Netherlands ... you have to decide a few months ahead what parts should be fitted, like one or two slide doors, electrified mirrors or not, windows in the side panels, how many seats ..... Fun part is you'll always forger something important. A sale going on for ever is only for the shopping malls alas. F

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
