Band-in-a-Box 2018 marks a huge milestone – 30 YEARS OF BAND-IN-A-BOX!
Perfect for musicians, songwriters, and educators – award-winning Band-in-a-Box is the world’s premiere auto accompaniment and style-based music creation software. There are over 50 exciting new features in Band-in-a-Box 2018! We are introducing "Video RealTracks," which work like RealTracks but also include videos of the musician's performance. We've added a new audio driver system (Windows Audio Session) that has ultra-low latency. The Audio Chord Wizard has been redesigned and is now built into Band-in-a-Box. Audio Harmonies feature has been enhanced with Audio Transcription, which converts a monophonic audio track to MIDI (notation), Fix Tuning to fix an out-of-tune audio recording, and more. You can save the Notation Window to a video in sync with the audio track playback. We've added notation support for time signatures like 12/8, 6/8, 9/8. The Toolbar has been enhanced with skins and more customization. You can open or save ABC notation files, which are very common song files on the internet with chords and melody. Songs can now be saved as MP3 files in high resolution. The Audio Edit Window is redesigned with new GUI and features... and many more!
We've added 202 new RealTracks, double the 101 that we've often released in the past! We've also made a new Xtra Styles PAK 4 with 160 new Xtra Styles. We also have over 120 new RealStyles for our new RealTracks including Americana, Klezmer, Top-40, Jazz Strings Pads, Vocals (oohs and aahs), New Crooner "Shout" BigBand styles, and more! There is a 49-PAK with 40 additional new RealTracks on top of the 202 above, so in total an amazing 242 new RealTracks are available!
Use it to easily create backing tracks for songs, jam tracks for practicing solos and improvisation, or as a powerful songwriting tool. Just type in some chords (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose a style, and Band-in-a-Box automatically creates professional-quality backing tracks with keyboards, bass, drums, guitar, strings, horns, and other instruments. Band-in-a-Box supports a wide variety of popular styles including Rock, Pop, Country, Folk, Celtic, Blues, Jazz, Latin, and Bluegrass styles. You can also create jam tracks using your own Hybrid Styles.
Get great-sounding backing tracks with RealDrums and RealTracks, which give you over 200 hours of studio musicians` recordings to use in your songs! RealTracks are available in a wide range of musical styles, keys, and tempos and use the high-quality Elastique 3 audio stretching and transposition engine. RealStyle automatically selects RealTracks for you when generating an arrangement. RealCharts even lets you view the music notation and guitar tab/fretboard display.
For added versatility, you can import your own or 3rd party loops or your favorite MIDITrack in any style to any track in your arrangement. Use the built-in mixer to control volume, panning, tone, and reverb for each instrument in your ultra-realistic Band-in-a-Box arrangement. The “Combo” slider lets you make changes to all tracks at once.
Print your song arrangements as sheet music or save as audio files (AIFF, M4A, WAV) for use in other programs (e.g., GarageBand, Cubase, etc.) or to share on the Internet.
