I've just purchased the Ultra PAK upgrade for BIAB 2020. I have been issued with a Serial Number for the upgrade and a list of the files with links to download.

I want to use the built in download manager to download the files but can not find the way to get the download manager to recognise the new files (~120GB!)to download. The tutorial suggest they should apper in the download manager - but they don't.

Can anyone let me know where I'm going wrong?

Thanks

I take it you have added the new Serial Number. If so you might try running BIAB as Admin.

Just a thought.

the download manager works on the serial number. have you activated BIAB?

the way it works is a pain if you have to reinstall because you have to install year by year and activate to get the download manager to download the real tracks you bought that year.

would be nice if the download manager was liked to your account, not serial numbers so you could just install the latest version and press a button.

that said it's great to just get the new files installed easily and simply.

If no files show up, there should be some kind of error message displayed... What is the message?

An alternative that is just as good or better, is to use a third party download manager. An excellent one is "HTTP Downloader". The steps are:
First, choose your download folder in HTTP Downloader.
1. Click "copy links" on your Products page.
2. Click the + button in HTTP Downloader and it should add the files automatically.

The complete download might take about 4 hours on a typical connection, but could obviously be more or less for you.

3. Run the "master installer .exe" to install all the RealTracks files. This might also take a few hours.

Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
