In addition to Realdrums it would be nice to have drumbreaks on demand in the available styles. I know you get a drumbreak at the changing of substyles (A,B,(C,D)) but it would be nice to choose a drumbreak from a list of breaks for the given styles for a location in a song instead of letting BiaB generate one. This option could perhaps be put in the bar-options menu.

I'd love this. Of course, I'd love basically a Snapshot or Construction Kit, where we could click on a bar, select an instrument, audition what's available for that bar, and choose and lock it....

More variety of Drumbreaks within the same style would actually be nice, too. Probably not easy to do, since we're talking audio clips?

I agree.

It would be very helpful if BIAB would allow some sort of control over the kind of fill you will get before a part marker.

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:

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!
