Hello guys. When I pick some styles, for example _WRONGED, I don't get the drums, only the other instruments. The drum sound file should be in a folder in DRUMS called FUNKSWING^ and the name of the file is should be FunkSwing^_120_Style.m4a but in my folder I miss the m4a file.
It would be great if someone could check if you have that file in your installation or if it is a bug in the program. I have contacted the support but well, so far that support haven't helped.

Check that your RealDrums location is set correctly, especially if they are from an external drive, or non-standard location:

It was missing in the Folder and I downloaded and reinstalled all files and the file still was missing. I've reached out for PG Support many times and they have even seen the problem using TeamViewer but never gave me a solution. I asked them to just send me the missing file since it isn't bit but they said they couldn't.
As a last chance I contact another person who had the program and he sent me the file and putting it in the folder solved the problem.
I'm glad I can use those drums now but very unsatisfied with PGs support. They don't give a issue number and don't follow up until it's solved, so everytime I've contacted them I have had to explain everything from the start.

Excellent (I think). Did you resolve the issue just now, or was it resolved earlier and you are providing an update?

HELLO, I have the same problem with the FunkSwing^_120_Style.Wav missing. ( not in Windows but in my iMac)
Could you send me the audio file (either wav, mp3, AIFF....no matter).
I read that you received it from someone else.
This could solve my problem.
I also contacted PGMusic, but they will or can not give me that file same as your experience. They even took over my Mac but could not solve it.
Please help.

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."
