I cannot get past this error when I try to open notation.

"PGMusic F Regular (PGMUS.TTF) font not found. Notation will not display properly without this font."

I've verified that all of the PGMusic fonts are installed in Macintosh HD>Library>Fonts. I've reinstalled BIAB 2018 and restarted, but still get the same error. What am I doing wrong? I'm running a Macbook Pro with OS High Sierra 10.13.6. Thanks for any help!

I get the same error about missing pgmus.ttf. I searched my computer and it's not there. I also searched the hard drive I purchased BB pre installed. It's not there either!

You should have six pg....ttf files in your Library/Fonts folder

Did you install BIAB onto your hard drive in the default location?

You may have to clean up the contents Fonts folder by name to find them — they don't alphabetize in order if you don't.

If you are not the Administrator on the computer or didn't grant the proper permissions during the install process, they may have installed in (users)/Library/Fonts. Move them to the correct directory, reboot and that should fix you up.

If they didn't install, the Fonts installer can be found in Applications/Band-in-a-Box/Data the file name is bbfonts.pkg Double-click to reinstall.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your help; however, after installing the bbfonts.pkg it still doesn't display the notation. Any ideas?
Thanks so much
Kirby

When you run the 'Band-in-a-Box Setup' on the hard drive, it will install the fonts. Running the bbfonts.pkg should do that as well. I think you might just need to quit and restart Band-in-a-Box, since it will load the fonts at startup.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
