Just updated to 2020, full package and I always check the installed directories for anything that does not look right...and I found something.


I have directories that go from RealTracks01-Demos all the way to RealTracks328 Demos- Gospel Low Vocal Mmms

It then jumps to RealTracks338 Demos - Classic Guitars 1 all the way to RealTracks352 Demos - Country Pollwinners 2

I seem to be missing everything from RealTracks 329 to RealTracks Demos 337.

In Style Picker, when sorting Set#** I see some styles from set RT328 and 329,nothing from 330 and 331, only 1 from 332, nothing from 333 and 334, some from 335, nothing from 336 and 337, some from 338 to 342, only a couple from 343, I see 344 to 351 and only a couple from 352.

Looks like to me the same problem we had last year on the initial release - many of them are not showing up in the Style Picker and yes I did do a full rebuild on the styles and installed patch 570.

Also when playing the demos, some of them had to play from the server as they evidently could not be found on my local HD.

Not a big deal but just wanted to point it out. Should be fixed in the upcoming patches.

I think you've missed the install for RealTracks Sets 329-337...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
