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?

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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
