Dear Sir,
I purchased BIAB a few months ago.
Windows version 2018.

Opened up the book and it talks about and the new features including "Video Realtracks"

I tried for over 2 hours trying figure out how to use Video Realtracks without any luck.

I then went into your forum and searched and found nothing about where they are in the program.

I finally did a general google search and discovered that they are an additional purchase.

Ok thats fine but on page 20 in the summary of new features in your book it mentions nothing about purchasing. I wasted two hours trying to figure out what the hell is going on and why they dont show up in the style browser.

You guys should mention that up front in the summary of new feature but you do not.

Supposedly you get a free Video Realtrack when purchasing the 2018 version or something like that but I guess I missed out somehow.

Anyway I do like your program but not your write ups and some of the info in your manual.

best regards,

Dennie, welcome to the forum. When you say you bought BIAB 2018 "a few months ago", I was wondering if that was November 1, 2018 or after?

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
