Band in a Box 2014 is here!

With over 50 new features, 101 new RealTracks, 54 new MIDI SuperTracks, 20 Artist Performances, 8 new Hi-Q MIDI Sounds and a great new look!

PG Music has been busy and have added some great new features and new RealTracks, MIDI SuperTracks, Hi-Q MIDI Sounds and Artist Performances to Band-in-a-Box! Compared to version 2013, this adds 50 new features, 101 new RealTracks, 54 new MIDI SuperTracks, 20 Artist Performances and 8 new Hi-Q  MIDI Sounds. There are now over 1,200 hours of RealTracks/RealDrums available!   

They’ve redesigned the GUI, with a great look and feel, and many new time-saving features have been added: New Toolbars, Song/Style areas, on-screen mixer, redesigned chord sheet with handwritten “real” looking chord fonts and more. You can now make your own RealTracks – they call these UserTracks– and you can use them like any RealTracks. 

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, so that tempo/chord root info is automatic. Support for FretLight® guitar has been added. 

You can now hear Band-in-a-Box singing, with built-in support  added for the popular online vocal synth “Sinsy.”  A Legato Stringsfeature automatically optimizes MIDI string parts to prevent retriggering the same notes.  And many more…

The award-winning 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…

Band-in-a-Box automatically generates a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns. Plus, add REAL accompaniment to your song with RealTracks and RealDrums. These are actual recordings of top studio musicians that replace the MIDI track with audio instruments. They sound like real musicians, because they are recordings of real musicians!
