I spotted something in the users manual that says VST's can be used on any real track. I am only able to load amplitube, the other's (including sforzamdos) are just ignored when trying to add them. so my question is two fold: Is it possible to add vst's to realtracks but, secondly, is there any good reason why one would want to do that?

One might well want to load effect VSTs, which is what amplitude does, of course.
I doubt there's any point in loading a VST instrument.

VST FX, sure why not.

VST instrument is a different beast. A lot of real tracks have their Midi counterparts that are loaded at the same time. You can chop away RT, leaving just MIDI and re-voice it with VST instrument of your choice. For example, I use several RT's that I like, but I either used them too many times, or simply don't like that particular sound. So, I would get rid of RT and use that midi with other Virtual instrument(s)

also if you use a Direct Input guitar you can any VSTFX to get the sound you like rather than just take what you are given with the FX version.

Will you elaborate on chopping the RT and have the Midi left?

Any RT with an underline will have a MIDI file with it. I work mostly in a DAW so I drag the MIDI to the mid window, go to DAW mode, and move the mid files via the + sign into my DAW. One maybe able to do it in BiaB but I have no experience doing it, thus other will have to help.

Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Notation that accompanies some of the RealTracks is for educational purposes. If a piano track has notation, it may be the digital equivalent of the audio that the artist recorded. Some instruments, though, lack the nuances that make it realistic, such as dynamics.

Works OK here (image below)
Yes, there is plenty of reason for doing this if your ears know what needs to be done...
like Mario and others I usually move out of BiaB before getting this far along in my usual workflow, but it can be done
/I used a simple, free, yet effective plugin as the example in the image, but I could just as easily have loaded an Ozone, or any other plugin that will run in BiaB

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."
