Hi. Carl, I installed from scratch to my external drive then ran BiaB and from the dock just select Options / Keep in dock and all was well.

I had the same problem with some styles showing as N/A. As far as I remember I had to rebuild 3 or 4 times before they settled down. I'm not 100% certain but I think I installed the updates after rebuilding.

Tim.

Ok great Tim, thank you - I'll continue with a few rebuilds and hope things settle down, thanks also for the 2nd update tip (I thought there was only one)! I'm sure there is a new 'clarity and body' in the audio demos - need to play around a lot more, haven't got to the plugin yet! Carl

Hello Carl,

You might not have Xtra styles 1 and 2 at all. You should definitely have Xtra styles 7 and if it doesn't show up on one rebuild, pressing rebuild multiple times isn't going to change that. I would suggest that you install the most recent patch, and this will make sure you have the most recent style definition file installed (maybe you have an old one in there from a previous install), and then press rebuild.

First install the patch (make sure you select the external drive), then press rebuild in the StylePicker, then see if you have any problem.

Great result Andrew, I had to point the updates to my external drive (as you pointed out)!!
I now have the Real Tracks 301-328 available as well as XtraPAK 7 - I also now realize that I have not purchased XtraPAKS 1 & 2 in the past which is why they were showing as N/A!
I have just now purchased the XtraPAKS 1 & 2 download - but in the rush made the mistake of buying for 'Windows', is it possible you could change that to 'Mac' on my account please??
Love what I've heard so far, very many thanks for your help Andrew!!! Best regards, Carl

Ok - we've fixed that! I've made new posts for other questions that were being added to this thread. The Logic question has been moved to the Mac DAW plugin forum.

Andrew, thanks again for fixing my purchase mistake - XtraPAKS 1 & 2 for Mac successfully downloaded and installed, everything working perfectly!!

EXCEPT - I have no BB Plugin??? Before I installed BB 2019 Mac I completely uninstalled all previous BB files from my MacBook Pro's internal HD, so the new installation is 'fresh' - I have installed the latest 303, 304 & 305 updates as well (to my external HD - my previous 'Applications' folder was completely removed before copying over the same folder from the new BB 2019 PGM HD)!
I have installed and used a very large number of plugins over the years - the BB 2019 Plugin is not on my system!! Odd since it should have gone in automatically, and everything else is working great??
Could someone kindly point me to the Mac DAW Plugin Forum please - no idea where that is?? Thanks, Carl

Good luck with that. My installation error says that the BIAB app must be installed on the external or that doesn’t work.

The only folders I have there are Real Tracks and Drums—I keep those folders empty on my System drive. This way, if any update installs files into those folders, I can copy those over to the external, then I erase the contents on my boot drive so I’ll know if a later update or add-on installs files there.

My workaround is to install onto my System drive. I then copy the contents of those two folders into the RT&D folders on my external as above.

If you have the USB drive, another way is to install the packs onto it, then copy the entire contents to your external drive. I have the Audiophile version. Copying the RT & Drums folders over to my external takes a few hours (over 1TB) from a USB3 hard drive. I like the other way better.

Thanks Mike. That sounds like the best thing to do. I was wondering about installing it all on my system drive and then moving off the samples etc to the external so you've confirmed that as the best option. Thanks again!

On my first version 2018 supplied on a HD I just created a BiaB 2018 folder on my external SSD and copied everything from the original BiaB HD in that folder. I opened the app from the SSD, added it to the dock and have had no problems at all. All the updates were installed later on the SSD and have worked right off.

Tim.

Just install the Band-in-a-Box program first, then install the RealTracks (RealCombos). You can install it on any volume you have the Band-in-a-Box program installed.

By the way, please post new topics in a new thread. This is an old thread that happens to be called BB2019 Mac, but actually, this whole forum is for Band-in-a-Box 2019 for Mac, not just this one thread.
