I have BiaB Everything Pak and upgraded to PlusPak. I have installed everything that the Installation Manager says I needed. But when I click 'What Add-Ons Do I Have' it shows that I am missing a bunch of Style and Solo disks. I thought all this was included with the PlusPAk. I have looked at My Products page and I am not seeing these Style and Solo disks.

How do I get them? Do I have to buy them? Or if they are included in the PlusPak, where do I find them to d/l?

Thanks for any help.

Grem, there is no longer an Everything Pak or a Plus Pak

This link shows the features between available paks

What version/year do you have? ( Help > About Band In A Box will give you the exact information you need )

Hi Grem and welcome to the forum.

Sometimes there are bonus styles available for first adapters when a new version is released. Also there are six sets of Xtra Styles with each set having about 160 styles. Neither bonus styles or Xtra styles are included in any packages.

@VideoTrack I have BiaB 2019. And I have had BiaB since at least 2012. I didn't upgrade every year the first few years. But since 2015 I have. Thanks for the link.

@Jim Hello Jim. I saw I was missing a lot of Styles and Solo disks so I was just asking questions. After I posted this I stated looking harder and I found where they sell all the disks. Just didn't want to buy any that I already have. So I have assumed that they sold these separate. Thanks for clearing it up for me.

Do they have sales on these disks? Or is that the real bread and butter products?

PG Music typically discounts products when they release new product. The last new product release was 2019 Band-in-a-Box for Windows and 2019 RealBand. One possibility might be if and when the next version of Band-in-a-Box for Mac is released. Another possibility is a mid year sale.

Thanks Jim. I knew about the end or year/new version release sale, but I don't remember if I saw the Styles on sale. That's what I was wondering. And I think last year was the time I got my '18 upgrade for a good price.

Well now that I know I need to purchase the styles separately I will be on the lookout for the sales. Thanks for the responses and help. Appreciate it.

Jim, VideoTrack, I have BiaB 2019 (603). When I go to my product page I see that there is a d/l for BiaB, would that get me the latest version? Or is there somewhere else to d/l the update?

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
