Well, i haven`t played any music for 10 years now. My Biab version is the 2011 UltraPack. Now I am considering updating to the 2021 version. But I cannot spend the money for the UltraPack version.

If I now upgrade to the Pro or MegaPack version, will I loose all the realtracks and everything, that I got with my 2011 version?

Hope you can understand, what i mean. In my 2011 version i allready had a lot of real tracks and as long, as I could still use them, i guess it would be fine to buy the pro or MegaPack version.

Install the 2021 version over top of your previous Band-in-a-Box and this will ensure that the new version is accessing the add-ons and Realtracks you had before.

If you do not have the 2011 installed, and do not have the original media to re-install it, then we recommend you purchase an UltraPAK 2021 instead because we do not have replacement links for versions that are this old.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten.
