Version: 2019(625)
I have chords arranged in the chord sheet. I click on the styles icon and can choose a style.
1- Cannot play the style using the Current Chord Sheet
2- Can use the Quick Play, after clicking on OK the style does not change

Welcome to the forums.

What happens when you try to play using the current chord sheet? Is there any message or error, or is it that nothing happens?

What version exactly of BiaB are you using?

Have you tried running as Administrator?

What is the Style that you chose?

Also, in addition to Videotracks fine thoughts...

Go to the link below, download update 628 and install it manually. When you install it, check that the paths are correct for your installation of BIAB.

https://www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm

When you have installed the update, go into Stylepicker and click on the "Rebuild" (at the bottom of Stylepicker's window). I usually run the [Fast] option. This will rebuild the list of styles and is necessary after an update installation.

Regards,
Noel

Version listed above
I did a rebuild and now it plays but I only had 600 styles and almost no Real styles. Used the download manager and downloaded all that I could. Now it has 900 styles. Is that the full list? I originally saw thousands!

I believe what VideoTrack was asking was what version of BiaB did you purchase with version meaning Pro, UltraPAK, MegaPAK, etc.

The BiaB engine is the same in all versions with the difference being the number or RealTracks, RealDrums, Real styles, MIDI styles, etc. The Pro version has the least number of the above and the UltraPAKs and Audiophiles having the most.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Thanks Mario,

Yes, I was referring to the specific package version. Thanks for clarifying the point (better than I did !)

Knowing what package you purchased would be useful.

For example, and as Mario mentions above, the UltraPak edition has all styles, Realtracks, etc. -- except for those that were released under special circumstances.

In the meantime, log-in into your PG Music Sales account and, if you've registered your version of BIAB, have a look under under "My Products" and you'll find download links for all the files that are available for you. This list is populated by all versions that you own, past and present.

Regards,
Noel

Sorry for not understanding. Here is what I have installed:
FILE SIZE (MB) DOWNLOAD
Band-in-a-Box and RealBand 2019 Pro (Windows) 760 Download
Hi-Q Instruments for Sforzando 521 Download
The following files can alternatively be downloaded using the Band-in-a-Box Download Manager. First, download and activate Band-in-a-Box, then go Help | Utilities | Run Download Manager.
Loops Set 2 and Held Chord Styles (Windows) 971 Download
Pro RealTracks 1 (Windows) 2000 Download
Pro RealTracks 2 (Windows) 2000 Download
Pro RealTracks 3 (Windows) 2000 Download
Pro RealTracks 4 (Windows) 2000 Download
Pro RealTracks 5 (Windows) 2000 Download
Pro RealTracks 6 (Windows) 1500 Download

So I have around 900 styles. Do I need to update anything else? Or this is it?

We want to help you resolve the issue.

What is the Style that you chose that did not work?
Was there any error message?

You listed the Pro package download files.

The 2019 Pro PAK includes 916 styles according to +++ THIS +++ comparison chart. The chart compares the 2019 Pro PAK release with prior Pro PAK releases.

The Pro PAK is the entry level package which has the least content. The +++ Mega PAK +++ has more content with about 2,800 styles but it still doesn't include all the available package content.

To obtain all the styles available in a package you'll need to upgrade to either the +++ Ultra PAK +++ , +++ Ultra PAK + (Plus) +++ or +++ Audiophile +++ .

The three packages listed immediately above contain the same styles, loops, RealTracks, MIDI SuperTracks content. For that reason most users eventually upgrade to the Ultra PAK or higher.

The Ultra PAK + includes additional educational programs while the Audiophile includes the educational programs as well as RealTracks in both lossy (wma or MP4a) and lossless (WAV or AIF)file formats.

Got it.
I have all those listed above installed.
So if I want more styles I have to upgrade.
The styles which were not playing disappeared after a Rebuild.

Thank you everyone for helping out.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
