A superior music software product
If you're a musician, this software will enable you to practice or improvise with your instrument as you play along to a MIDI instrumental "background" generated by the chord symbols you enter into the program's main window. With the addition of "Real Tracks" and "Real Drums", which are actual audio recordings of highly talented, professional musicians playing their instruments, you won't believe the quality of the music Band-in-a-Box creates for you, and neither will the people who listen to the music you produce with it.
If you're an aspiring musician, songwriter, or singer, this software will help you to increase your understanding of music theory and MIDI implementation as you apply yourself to learning how to use the huge number of music-creating and editing tools available.
I think this software is a sterling example of the application of computers to learning. It has almost everything you need to realize your musical ideas. I got started learning music late in life, but now I am writing songs with swiftness and ease and having a lot fun, too.
Also, the support for this product is absolutely outstanding. You can e-mail your questions, post them on forums, or even call the company and the technicians and users respond quickly and helpfully.
Products as well-designed and supported as BIAB make this world a better place because it enables people to explore their creativity, refine their ideas and send the result out into the world for everyone to enjoy.
