Amazing Accompaniment and Composition Tool

With 201 new Styles played by world-class musicians, the newest iteration of PG Music's Band-in-a-box for PC makes musical accompaniment and song creation easier than ever. Rather than employing samples, Band-in-a-Box's RealTracks yield MIDI-like control of actual audio recordings to deliver incredibly realistic backing tracks. And it's child's play to use - just type in chords, choose a style, and the software does the rest. Band-in-a-Box can automatically generate complex, nine-part horn parts, as well as pro-quality piano, bass, drums, guitar and string arrangements that suit just about any genre. PG Music Band-in-a-Box for PC provides everything you need to create your next opus.

201 new Styles for inspired song creation

In addition to its already impressive collection, PG Music's newest iteration of Band-in-a Box for PC contains 201 new Styles played by world-class musicians, including Jon Herington (guitarist for Steely Dan), Danny Gottlieb (drummer for Pat Metheny), and Alex Al (bassist for Michael Jackson). 71 jazz and blues/funk RealTracks include a "crooner" big band jazz horn set capable of generating complex, nine-part horn arrangements. Blues Styles include resonator and baritone guitar RealTracks. 67 country, folk, and world Styles include pedal steel RealTracks, along with bent-note pianos and Celtic percussion. 63 pop and rock RealTracks encompass Top 40-style pop, crunchy rock, old school punk, and everything in between. Surf rock, anyone?

Enhanced StylePicker makes finding Styles incredibly easy

PG Music Band-in-a-Box's redesigned StylePicker features a re-sizable window and selectable font size, making it easier to see and use. Sort the Style list by clicking on a column name. Easily filter by category, time signature, feel, tempo, and more. At Sweetwater, we found Band-in-a-Box's ability to generate a list of Styles whose genre, feel, and tempo are similar to a song title we typed especially cool. You can also intelligently sort the best Style for your song, listen to a four-bar preview of your song using a selected Style, and hide Styles that are missing RealTracks or RealDrums.

Layers provide optional rows of information above each bar

Quickly scan information using PG Music Band-in-a-Box's Layers function. The Bar Lyrics Layer provides editable bar-based lyrics. The Section Text Layer loads and saves editable text with your song. The Bar Settings Layer shows information about upcoming tempo changes, key changes, and more. The Additional Chord Display layer shows chords by displaying root notes (Roman Numeral, Nashville Notation, Solfeggio Notation, and Fixed Do).
