Hi,

While some of my old versions PG Music (Other Products) did runs in Windows XP and 7, 32 bit, I don't have the same luck now with Windows 7 and 10 - 64 bit. For example Pianist Performance Series which are 4 programs: Latin Pianist, Modern Jazz Pianist, Blues Pianist, New Age Pianist, all of them throw a compatibility error that cannot be solved with any of the backward compatibility settings of Windows 64 when try to run the installers or the program itself (copied from a W32 previous installation)



I think the versions I have are too old since I checked the actual product page and it read: System Requirements for Windows, Windows® XP / Vista / 7/8 / 8.1 / 10 (32 or 64-bit)

Is there a way to solve the 64 bit compatibility issue or is a must update those applications? In that case how can I update them?
The ones that interest to "rescue" the most are Pianist Performance Series, Jazz guitar and Jazz Soloist.

NOTE: Installers have the same problem, so what I did was copy the original programs installation folders from Windows 32 to Windows 64.

Hello,

They are 32-bit and should work on any Windows PC. You must have a really old version. Please PM me and we'll fix it.

Dear Andrew,

I have similar problems.

I am using Band in a Box since Version 5 (at that time on Atari) and have a collection of Bonus CDs that came with my Megapaks 2004, 2006, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Now I am at UltraPak 2020 (before Ultrapak 2018 and 2019) and awaiting the German Version made available by m3c.
This aforementioned Bonus disc are useless meanwhile, as far as I understand because there is no 16Bit subsystem any longer in Windows 10.
But I still would like to use a small part of them. That would be:
- Copy Me Piano- Volume 1 Basics, Harmony and comping
- Jazz Piano MasterClass with miles Black Disc two
I started playing the piano recently and bought the Beginner Piano MasterClass Volume 1 to replace the useless Bonus disc I already had and bought the Blues Pianist Volume 1.

I would be more than happy if PG Music could replace “Copy Me Piano- Volume 1” and “Jazz Piano MasterClass” with working Versions.
Is there a way?

Best Regards

Hello,

- CopyMe is not a standalone program - it consists of files you open within Band-in-a-Box and they are found in the 'Songs and Lessons\CopyMe' folder.

- For the Jazz Piano MasterClass, you can update it to the latest build here:

I did that and it worked out fine. Thank you.
That such old stuff is still supported and I got a free update is a kind of service that is unusuall this days.

To buy this new would have been a small amount, but it is the spirit that matters.
Highly appreciated.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
