Hey :-)

I have BiAb 2023 and it works great on my Windows 10 Desktop Pc.

I have the real tracks on an external SD disk.
Now I have installed BiaB on my notebook (also Windows 10), changed the paths to the Realtracks/Realdrumms, and "rebuild"....
But he only finds 4% of the real tracks ?

Makes no sense to me frown

I have Band-in-a-Box UltraPAK 2023.

Any Idea ?

Welcome to the neighborhood.

Firstly, does Windows Explorer show that D:\bb\RealTracks\ definitely does exists and selecting 'Properties' that it contains a significant number of folders / files?

Please list the Pak that you have (Pro, UltraPak etc).

Secondly, start BiaB, select the StylePicker, then select Rebuild from the lower section of the form. Then check to see if the situation has improved:

The files located in the RealTracks folder are only one component of a working RealTracks instrument. Another component is the *.st2 files that are found in your Band-in-a-Box folder (bb/Soloists)
The RealTracks and Drums folders are the only two folders that can be located outside the bb folder. The error message is saying that you are missing the *.st2 files. To fix the problem, you could copy/merge the Soloists folder from your external drive to the folder you are running the program from (C:\bb). In fact, you may as well copy/merge all the bb folders (e.g. Soloists, Demos, etc.) from that external drive or run the Band-in-a-Box Setup install option 2 (copy BB files).

Yes, we see this quite often actually when people in particular have a system crash and load from a backup or when they only copy the RealTracks and RealDrums folders to a different drive without the important .st2 files (and sometimes also without adjusting the locations within the Band-in-a-Box program). Definitely give what Andrew said a try, but it for some reason that doesn't work for you, feel free to reach out to our support team directly via our chat system, phone, or by e-mail at support@pgmusic.com.


Cheers,
Ember

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."
