Tell Us Your Favorite RealTracks Artist!

When creating your songs in Band-in-a-Box® or RealBand, who is the most common RealTracks Artist you use?

What is your favorite RealTracks Artist combination?

Share your favorite RealTracks Artist, or list of RealTracks Artists with us here - don't forget a link to your song (if you have one)!

Eric Blackmon's Tutorial: How To Play A Guitar Solo...

Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist Eric Blackmon uses Band-in-a-Box backing tracks with a lot of his online lesson videos, including the recently uploaded How To Play A Guitar Solo With 2 Frets In Any Key!

Click here to watch the video for this lesson.

Get to Know Endorsing Artist Robert Conti

Enthusiastic Endorsing Artist Robert Conti uses Band-in-a-Box backing tracks for many of the DVDs that he offers on his website, here: http://www.robertconti.com/jazz-guitar-learning-products/

As an endorser, he has this to say:
It is a genuine pleasure to be associated with PG Music. By eliminating the need for an external tone generator and including a comprehensive array of real combo and orchestral instruments within the software, Band-in-a-Box has once again set a new standard of high quality.
My staff and I are proud to recommend this product to patrons of my learning products, as the opportunity for any aspiring student to practice with an On Call Rhythm Section - 24/7, is immeasurable. Moreover, the sound of real instruments render the support tracks generated by Band-in-a-Box, as ideal for any live performance!

Thanks Robert!

Visit Robert Conti's YouTube Channel to review all of his videos.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2016 - Render Track as ACID Loop!

With PowerTracks Pro Audio 2016, you can render an audio track (a highlighted section or the whole track) as ACID Loop and save it to the BB Loops folder!


Select a track, or section of a track, and choose Render | Export Acid Loop - Highlighted section or entire track to WAV in Loops Folder. Then select a file name and press [Save]. When the message "Successfully rendered the file..." appears, you'll also see a "Acidize this .WAV file" where you can adjust further settings, and press [OK].

Your file will automatically save to the bb\RealTracks\Loops folder, unless you choose a different location when you're assigning a file name.

The Band-in-a-Box 2016 for Mac Special is a Hit!

We've recently added some strong new features to the Band-in-a-Box 2016 for Mac program, including VST plugins and AU (audio unit) support, Hi-Q MIDI instruments, an included VST Guitar Amp Simulator (AmpliTube), and more!

If you're already a 2016 user, you can download the free patch here.

If you're using an older version, and are interested in upgrading to the new 2016 program - now is a GREAT time to upgrade! We're offering up to 50% off on Upgrades: www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.packages.htm... and there are BONUS PAKs too!

Here's a taste of what users like you are saying about the new 2016 version:
"The HiQ sounds sound great! This is a huge update for the Mac version!"
"Wow, amazing! Nice work, PGMusic. The Mac version is really catching up. Thanks!"
"The capabilities of the new Band-in-a-box is really impressive!"
"Congratulations on this fantastic new version!"
