1) Do you have a trial/demo version of BIAB to try before I purchase ?

2) Which version I should buy to get the vst plugin version ?

3) I saw in video BIAB generates audio tracks in FL Studio. Similarly can BIAB VST plugin generate midi tracks in FL Studio ?

4) Can I use .sty, .prs, or other arranger keyboard (yamaha and korg) style files with BIAB?

I have asked that they have a trial/limited demo of the vstPlugin

2) Which version I should buy to get the vst plugin version ?
The vstPlugin comes with all versions

3) I saw in video BIAB generates audio tracks in FL Studio. Similarly can BIAB VST plugin generate midi tracks in FL Studio ?
Yes
4) Can I use .sty, .prs, or other arranger keyboard (yamaha and korg) style files with BIAB?
No but this has been asked for also, you can use JJazzLab to open Biab chords and load any keyboard sty.

EDIT: you do have a 30 day money back if you are not happy

1) Do they really have a demo for vstPlugin version to give it a try with FL and see how it works?

2) Ok

3) Ok

4) Does it mean that style files from Yamaha and Korg arrangers work in BIAB ?

And BIAB also use .sty file isnt it?

BiaB files are not .sty files.

This thread goes into some detail on the topic, but some people with many years experience with BiaB and even marketing arrangements. They state the file formats are not compatible. One option is to convert a style file to MIDI and feed it to the StyleMaker as you would any other MIDI file. But that won't necessarily give you something as useful as the style file on the arranger.

.sty files for yamaha keyboards or korg keyboards are not the same as .sty files in BIAB, but as noted above there are a few ways to get these into BIAB.
