Band-in-a-Box 2021 Features and Additions
There are over 80 new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2021! We've added 16 new editable Utility tracks, which can be used for audio and/or MIDI. 24-bit audio playback, recording, mixing, and rendering is now supported. Auto-Fix "sour" notes - out-of-tune notes in RealTracks will be auto corrected to match chord tones. 4X's faster audio DSP processing (using SIMD), allowing smoother playback & faster rendering for a larger number of tracks. The Mixer has been improved with many customizable display options including the embedded window, track selection to display, automatic show/hide during playback, and more. The Mute and Solo states are now saved/loaded with songs. You can now view audio on any track, not just the Audio track, and copy regions of audio to Utility tracks. Plugin control has been improved, with a direct access from the Mixer, the ability to send each MIDI track to output to another track, multiple plugins GUI windows display, WAVES plugins support, and more. Audio harmonies can be generated onto individual tracks, so you can use control volume, panning, reverb, effects for each voice. Hi-Q tempo stretching setting is used for playback and rendering. The Chord Sheet has been improved with new zoom buttons and time signature display on the part marker. Chords can be copied as a simple text format and then be pasted into another song or a text. We've added 7,000 more song titles to the Song Titles Browser. Now, all RealDrums have RealCharts (with accurate Drum Notation and MIDI to trigger drum sounds). Added support for third party programs that split audio into separate tracks (stems). There are new notation features, including cut time (e.g. Bluegrass 8th notes) display.
