There are over 80 new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2021! We've added 16 new editable Utility tracks, which can be used for audio and/or MIDI. The Mixer has been improved with many customizable display options including the embedded window, track selection to display, automatic show/hide during playback, and more. The Mute and Solo states are now saved/loaded with songs. You can now view audio on any track, not just the Audio track, and copy regions of audio to Utility tracks.
Plugin control has been improved, with a direct access from the Mixer, the ability to send each MIDI track to output to another track, multiple plugins GUI windows display, and more. Audio harmonies can be generated onto individual tracks, so you can use control volume, panning, reverb, effects for each voice. Auto-Fix "sour" notes - out-of-tune notes in RealTracks will be auto corrected to match chord tones. 24-bit audio playback, recording, mixing, and rendering is now supported. The Hi-Q tempo stretching setting for élastique will be used when rendering. The Chord Sheet has been improved with new zoom buttons and time signature display on the part marker. Chords can be copied as a simple text format and then be pasted into another song or a text. 8,000 more titles have been added to the Song Titles Browser. Now, all RealDrums have RealCharts (with accurate Drum Notation and MIDI to trigger drum sounds). There are many notation enhancements, including 2/2 cut time and 2/4 display, the time signature button with a better menu, and a new visual transpose button. And more!
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. 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.
