Is there a place anywhere that gives us some teaser soundbytes that explain to me why I should spend almost $200 to move on to 2022? Are the new styles anything more than new styles made from those same old artists or is there actually new content from new players? What does "60 additional RealTracks" really mean? More Brent Mason scratch tracks that sound like every one he has ever done? (Meaning "How many notes can I fit in here?") With all the discussion in the wish list forums about wanting some fresh blood, were those requests honored even a little bit? I'd really like the opportunity to hear what I am buying before I spend money on something that doesn't really sound much better than what I have now.

Does such a thing exist?

So you have songs with a singer (male and female), with the harmonies. You have a lot of Blues in this new version. and you still have the indestructible Brent. You have extracts here, 375 to 400 without counting the Xtra Pak 12 and the Xpro pak 2. Enjoy your listening! :

MoultiPass's top link above lets you listen to samples of the new RTs.
Lots to explore, not sure what you were looking for.
Also not sure where you got '60 additional RealTracks' from, more like 200+, and yes, some of them are a nice change and well worth it.
But that's a personal opinion, not right or wrong; you have to decide.

Yes. I have still never even launched BIAB. I came from DAW-ville and from the screen shots I have seen of BIAB songs I don't think I would be comfortable with it. I like control and what control I get from a DAW is more what I know.

"Limited Time Special Offers Extended Until January 15, 2022!
SAVE up to 50% on most Band-in-a-Box® version 2022 for Windows Upgrade packages... and that's not all! When you purchase version 2022 for Windows before January 15, 2022, we'll include a Bonus PAK full of great new Add-ons FREE! Upgrade to the 2022 49-PAK to receive even more NEW Add-ons including 60 additional RealTracks... that's 282 NEW RealTracks with version 2022!"

So a little out of context due to my skimming instead of reading closely.

All the times I have looked at the sales pages I had NEVER seen "Audio demos". And that's my ADD life right there.
