Hi Folks been having an issue with the 2021 biab ultra pack 64bit version for windows. I'm running windows 10. I had a hard drive crash recently so had to re-install biab 2021 to my ext drive ( F drive ) I havn't enough room in my main internal drive. Most styles are saying N/A even though I downloaded every one of them to the specified folder. It's driving me insane

Furry, Please check your RealTrack folder settings.

Ctrl+E > RealTracks > Custom RealTracks folder

Also, if you unplug the external hard drive and then plug it back in you may find the external hard drive letter changed from "F" to another letter. If so, let us know and we can help you set Windows so the external hard drive always uses the same drive letter.

Last, you may receive more views and responses posting in the +++ Band-in-a-Box for Windows +++ forum section. This section is mainly for PG Music to provide responses to frequently asked questions.

Thanks Jim, the drive is internal now. I've re-installed 2020 from the biab drive and will download 2021 Real tracks later.
Most installed ok but some are still missing and I just can't fathom out why. I got an ipad 9th gen recently and am blown away with it so I might save some bucks and get a mac sometime instead of this 11 year old pc I have

Additionally, after installing any add-ons or updates to Band-in-a-Box, please open the Style Picker and click the Rebuild button. This makes the program search through your folder for what is there.

If you need any further help, please feel free to contact us directly either through live chat or email support@pgmusic.com.


Best,

After much blood, sweat , tears and bad language, I finally got all but 4 of the RT installed again. This is REALLY weird. Tracks 160-164 doesn't want to install

Graham,

Have you tried downloading the RealTracks installer from your online account? There is an automatic installer that downloads and install missing files in the background or you can choose to manually download and install files.

If you haven't used your online account, you may want to check it out.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
