Band-in-a-Box is so easy to use 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.
Live audio tracks can be created using RealDrums and RealTracks.Previously the MIDI styles were based on C7 chord patterns that were repeated over every chord, but MIDI SuperTracks are based on actual playing by studio musicians so you'll hear realistic sounds using MIDI. There are 46 MIDI SuperTracks in 3 sets (Pop, Country and Jazz) with piano, organ, and bass.The new batch audio function let's you generate audio files (M4A, MP4, or AIFF) for an entire folder of songs in a single step and easily transfer songs from your Mac to the iPhone version of Band-in-a-Box and much more.RealTracks have been enhanced with new RealCharts for existing bass RealTracks, more Simple Variation RealTracks and more.Plus great new Notation features
