RealTracks for Band-in-a-Box
What are RealTracks? RealTracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). They follow the chord progression that you have entered, so you hear an authentic audio accompaniment or solo.
RealTracks are not "samples"... They are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing in perfect sync with the other tracks. Choose from pre-made Band-in-a-Box Styles, or combine RealTracks instruments to make your own band.
You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can! Adding REAL instruments played by TOP MUSICIANS to your compositions brings an exciting human element ... and that's just the beginning!
There are now over 1,200 RealTracks in the UltraPlusPAK or EverythingPAK! Over 2,000 hours of studio musicians recordings!
Take a tour of all the newest RealTracks Sets 188-205, as well as the new MIDI SuperTracks Sets 10-17 and Artist Performance Sets 4-5.

Q: Can I make songs using RealTracks that sound as good as your demos?
A: Yes, you certainly can! Our demos are composed and rendered entirely in Band-in-a-Box on a typical computer. We don't use any other programs or special equipment to 'make the demos sound better'.
