Upgraded to 1 terabyte HD so I could have everything on one machine. Previously used the portable BB HD (ultra pack) since original HD wasn't large enough on the 2013 computer. So, first transferred the 2013 mac data from a backup drive to the 2020 Mac. Then, used portable BB HD to install BB 2019 on new computer. Then, 2020 BB arrived and last night installed the new BB into the new computer.

Now, I have lost "My Songs" folder with all my previous arrangements. Have tried searching the new machine for the files; nowhere to be found (I could be dumb). Very frustrated after a HUGE investment.

Questions: Should I delete BB 2020 from the 2020 Mac and start over? If so, how should I proceed? Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I wouldn't suggest deleting anything. Your songs folder is probably on your BB 2019 portable hard drive is it not? Or did you previously have it on your Mac's internal HD?

Andrew,

I did find it on the 2019 drive which I connected to the new mac. I may have done it incorrectly, but I dragged the folder into BB 2020 and I think it's at least a work-around.

Can you tell me how many backing tracks the BB Ultrapack has? I purchased it on 7/31/2020 but when reloading the tracks, the number changed from >7000 to around 6000 backing tracks -- I spent the $ so I would be up-to-date after getting the new laptop. Is this number (around 6000) correct?

Thanks for the help.

Are you referring to rebuilding the Styles list in the StylePicker? The numbers sound about right, since you may not have the "Xtra styles" which are styles that are sold separately from the Band-in-a-Box packages. If you choose the option to show all styles including N/A (not available) styles in the StylePicker (Other drop-down), then you will see all known styles including ones that you don't have.

Thanks. I was just going by what was shown (greater than 7000 styles before I upgraded to 2020 bb for Mac).
Confusing.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
