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!
It's easy to get the RealTracks Sets... All of the 187 RealTracks Sets are included in the UltraPlusPAK, EverythingPAK and Audiophile Edition of Band-in-a-Box and RealBand. Or to purchase by genre, check out our Jazz, Rock-Pop and Country RealPAKs.
Our customers love RealTracks so much - they're always asking for more, and we've listened by adding 15 new RealTracks Sets with 101 more RealTracks.
