Band-in-a-Box has been updated with over 50 new features, including RealTracks which includes real audio recordings of Acoustic Guitar, Pedal Steel, and Tenor Sax. Other new features include MultiStyles, an updated Audio Chord Wizard, RealDrums style changes, Medley Maker, and many more.
Here are the details:
RealTracks – features three additional “Real” instruments, including Real Pedal Steel, Real Acoustic Guitar, and Tenor Sax soloing (RealSax). Best of all, they follow the chord progression that you have entered, so that you hear an authentic audio accompaniment to your song.
MultiStyles – These are Styles that can have anywhere from 4 to 24 substyles. Previous Band-in-a-Box Styles were limited to 2 substyles (“a” and “b”). Now, for example, a MultiStyle with 4 substyles (First Verse, Verse, Chorus, Break) can be used, and you select the various sections using A, B, C & D part markers. Some of our newest Styles Sets are MultiStyles, typically with 4 substyles, but some Techno Styles have 24 substyles.
Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements – The Audio Chord Wizard automatically figures out the chords from MP3 files (or other audio files like WAV, WMA, and audio CD etc.). The Audio Chord Wizard is a great way to learn and practice popular songs, as you play along and see the chords. We’ve added a Lead Sheet window that shows the chords for the whole song on a single screen, the ability to mark sections of the song using part markers, and many other improvements.
