Band-in-a-Box is so easy to use!
GUI has been redesigned with a great new look and many time-saving enhancements! The Toolbars and Song Title Area have been redone, and the chord sheet now has a “Real” looking handwritten font for chords. We’ve added UserTracks. Now you can make your own RealTracks to add to your song. Plus there’s a handy Instant Preview
of styles, RealTracks, and RealDrums so that you can quickly audition
them to choose the best ones for your song. Loops now support
Acidized Loops. A Legato Strings feature that automatically optimizes MIDI string parts to prevent retriggering the same notes, a new Master Volume allows you to boost volumes of all songs with one setting, 8 new Hi-Q MIDI sounds, and many more…
Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord
symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you’d like, and
Band-in-a-Box does the rest, automatically generating a complete
professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and
strings or horns in a wide variety of popular styles plus optional live
audio tracks with RealDrums and RealTracks.
