I purchased and install the Mac 2020 Ultra Pack+ lately.
I installed all in my computer and let the soft choice himself the good folder.
However I have an error message :

It's seem the software didn't install correctly but I don't know what part is not well installed.

Is someone able to tell me what do I have to re-install among these files ?

  • 2020_0pak.pkg
  • artistperformances_full_2020.pkg
  • bandinabox_2020_full.pkg
  • bb2020_audio_midi_plugins.dmg
  • realtracks_shots_loops_holds1-441.dmg
  • realtracks001-045.dmg
  • realtracks046-101.dmg
  • realtracks102-154.dmg
  • realtracks155-205.dmg
  • realtracks206-253.dmg
  • realtracks254-277.dmg
  • realtracks278-300.dmg
  • realtracks301-328.dmg
  • realtracks329-352.dmg
  • songs_lessons_pak.pkg
  • supertracks010-017.pkg

Is this bug known ?
I hope I can fix it with just re-install.

Thanks for all help.

Yes, you can review and copy all of these messages by going to the Help menu | Utilities | Display Log text file.

RealTracks #2557 is part of 'RealTracks Set 263'. (you can tell this by looking at the Set column in the RealTracks Picker). So if you missed intalling that, just find the installer series that contains that set number.

Take a moment first and download/install the latest patch:

If you look in /Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks
Do you actually see the folder "Cello, Background SlowWaltz Sw 085"

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Dr. Dave" Walker (Dr. Dave On Music) recently received Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac, and he absolutely loves it!

He's written his thoughts in detail, which can (and definitely should) be read here: Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Band-in-a-Box 2020 is a huge advance over even BB2019, with easier to use, more powerful features that give you more information while creating more musical results. You have never had more control of more features which are now much easier to find. The move forward with this version is astonishing. Again … WOW!

My very highest recommendation. Just upgrade! Or if for some strange reason you don’t have it yet, BUY THIS ONE! It will change your musical life!"
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

#TipTuesday - Style Changes in Band-in-a-Box®

Head to our Tips & Tricks forum to read what other Band-in-a-Box users have discovered about the program!

Like mrgeeze's recent post Style Changes within a song.. another great BIAB feature.

...My arrangement's bass Real Track was 397 (bass Acoustic Paul).
Solid but not really what I wanted for a solo.

I hit the F5 key to bring up bar setting and poked around till i found the Real Tracks command button in the upper right.
Clicked on that & quickly change the bass to 452 (Soloist (bluesy).
12 bars later I did the same and switched it back to 397.

The results were excellent...
