Note: Assuming you have the latest build of the program the StylePicker is aware of all currently available PG Music styles. This means that it is normal to see N/A styles, unless you actually have the largest Band-in-a-Box package along with all the Xtra styles.

+++ THIS +++ response from Andrew with PG Music helped me to realize there are two instances where the Band-in-a-Box StylePicker may display a "N/A" response.

The first instance is when styles are missing. The second instance is when one or more RealTracks or RealDrums instruments needed in a style are missing. Luckily, in both instances, the StylePicker provides a way for the user to control the display of N/A information.

This Tip and Trick highlights the dual use of N/A and describes methods a user can use to manage the display of both types of N/A information. I am using 2019 64 bit Band-in-a-Box for Windows for my descriptions and screen shots.

Note: A user can use "Ctrl + F9", "File" > "Load Style From StylePicker", or the StylePicker button to open the StylePicker window.


You have three (3) ways to control the display not available (N/A) information in the StylePicker:

(1) "Other" button > "Show Styles that are Found/Not Found [N/A]" > "Show ONLY N/A (not found) Styles" to display only styles you do not have or the program can not find; in other words, N/A styles.

(2) "Other" button > "Show Styles that are Found/Not Found [N/A]" > "Show only Styles that are FOUND" to display both the styles you have and the program has found; in other words styles that the program can use.

(3) "Other" button > "Show Styles that are Found/Not Found [N/A]" > "Show ALL Styles including N/A (not found) Styles" to display all published styles including both the styles you have and the program has found as well as the styles that are published but you don't have or the program has not found.


You have one (1) way to find missing RealTracks or RealDrums instruments from the available styles:

(1) "Other" button > "Show Styles with RealTracks/RealDrums that are Found/Not Found [RT n/a]" > "Show ALL Styles With RealTracks/RealDrums that are NOT FOUND [RT n/a]".


You have one (1) way to view only styles not missing any RealTracks or RealDrums:

(1) "Other" button > "Show Styles with RealTracks/RealDrums that are Found/Not Found [RT n/a]" > "Show ALL Styles With RealTracks/RealDrums that are FOUND".

Thanks.
Wonder if there could be a link direct to the RT page, to buy the missing realtrack (instrument or style).

There is not! But that is a great suggestion.

More people are likely to see the suggestion and add their support by posting the idea in the wishlist forum section +++ HERE +++

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
