There are also new Rockabilly, Surf Rock, Country, Folk, and Funk styles, as well as new RealTracks from Brent Mason, Zane Carney, and Jon Herington, to name just a few. We have a 49-PAK available with many additional new RealTracks on top of the 201 above, so in total an amazing 225 new RealTracks are available! The 49-PAK also includes11 new MIDI SuperTracks, 19 Instrumental Studies (bass, acoustic & electric guitar, piano & saxophone, in a variety of genres), and for the first time ever, 3 "Artist Video Performances," which are video files that play in Band-in-a-Box, with live saxophone performances playing along with Band-in-a-Box RealTracks.
Unbelievable! More than 2,000 RealTracks in the UltraPlusPAK, EverythingPAK and Audiophile Edition! That's over 2,500 hours of studio musicians' recordings that you can use in your song!
Along with Band-in-a-Box® 2016, we've released 201 more Jazz, Rock-Pop, and Country Styles. These include:
- 71 NEW Jazz, Blues & Funk RealTracks: There is a new "Crooner" Big Band Jazz Horns RealTracks set, with a complex, 9-part horn section! All 9 horns play together, or you can use the individual horns on their own. There are new sets by world-class, famous musicians such as Jon Herington (guitarist for Steely Dan and others), Danny Gottlieb (drummer for Pat Metheny and others), and Alex Al (bassist for Michael Jackson and others). We also have many new Funk styles, spread over two RealTracks sets. There are also new blues styles, with resonator guitar and baritone guitar RealTracks.
- 67 NEW Country, Folk and World RealTracks: In the world of country, we cover the old and the new! There is a set of modern pedal steel RealTracks, with sounds that you hear all the time on country radio. We also have old-school styles, including a set of "bent-note" piano styles, reminiscent of 50s and 60s classic country. There are also wonderful new folk and world styles, including "Oberkrainer," a very distinctive and very recognizable sound from the regions around the Alps, featuring horns, accordion and guitar. There are also "Old Time" Americana RealTracks, as well as new Celtic percussion.
- 63 NEW Pop and Rock RealTracks: RealTracks from lite pop, to crunchy rock, to old-school punk are covered with this RealTracks release. We have a set of RealTracks rhythm guitar styles from up-and-coming guitar wizard Zane Carney. Zane is perhaps best known as John Mayer's guitarist, but also well-established in his own right, and he has recorded 4 new RealTracks styles for Band-in-a-Box. In addition to these, we have modern RnB styles, for people who want a more current sound, and we also have classic punk, very useful brushes and percussion styles, and exciting Surf-Rock!
