Hello there, when I try to load a midi sample song I get the message "not found", new 2021 822 version installed. Am I missing an installation step or something?
Thanks

Mike B.

Is that a demo song when loading from the Style Picker that is "not found"? Tell us a bit more?

You should have a folder such as this: C:\bb\Demos\MIDI Style Demos, of course you may not be using the C:\ drive, so wherever your installation of bb is, in there is a demo folder and in there is a MIDI Style Demo folder. Are there any files in there?

Hi, yes, I should have said "demo songs". Yes Dan you're right. I'll look for the folder that Joe suggested.
Thanks to both

You can use the Song Picker to browse through our demo songs. Just change the folder that the Song Picker is searching to the Demos folder.
We have a video tutorial on how to use the Song Picker here: https://youtu.be/XIEUQbIMTEE

Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Mac Review – Users' Dreams Come True

Read all about what "Dr. Dave" Walker thinks of his latest copy of Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Mac with his review, Band-in-a-Box for Mac 2021 – Users' Dreams Come True.

"2021 is a big leap forward to the best Band-in-a-Box for Mac yet! If you have been putting off upgrading, or even if not, NOW is the time to upgrade! And if you haven't got it yet, you owe it to yourself to get Band-in-a-Box 2021.

-"Dr. Dave" Walker
