1. They could be semi smart, ie if it's a jazz style suggest that, don't make me change from pop.
2. It's time to add at least country, maybe folk, etc.

Agreed John all intros seem to have advanced chords/ It'd be nice to have some more day-day ones

Whenever I have a problem, I just sing, Then I realize my voice is worse than my problem.

John, those are the reasons I write my own intros!
I changed my password to "incorrect" so whenever I forget it the computer will say, "Your password is incorrect."

64 bit Win 10 - the latest BiaB and RB - I always get the updates - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

#TBT - Introduction of RealBand

We first introduced RealBand in July 2008, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5 for Windows. Initially, RealBand was a separate purchase - but that changed early in 2009... it's now included with every purchase of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

It started out with the following features list:
- Intelligent automatic accompaniment by Band-in-a-Box®.
- RealTracks and RealDrums – automatic live instrument parts. Generate Real Instruments or other new tracks to add to an existing audio file. The added parts play in sync as they follow the original tempos from the audio file.
- Generate an entire song or parts of a song.
- The amazing Audio Chord Wizard figures out the chords from any MP3 or other audio files and writes them to the Chords window in RealBand. Using just this one feature alone, you can easily learn to play MP3 songs, by seeing the chords displayed in RealBand.
- MIDI music can be displayed in standard music notation on the screen and using the on-screen piano keyboard or guitar fretboard.
- 48-track MIDI/audio mixer with multiple FX busses (up to 16 effects per track).
- Support for popular audio file formats – MP3, WMA, WMV, WAV, and CDA.
- Built-in DirectX audio effects.
- DirectX and VST plug-ins supported.
- Band-in-a-Box files load directly.
- Compatible with all Band-in-a-Box styles and Real instruments.
- Shares native .SEQ file type with PowerTracks Pro Audio, directly compatible.
- Professional recording, editing, and playback features. Create and edit music using piano roll, music notation, event list, bars view, track view and more.
- Supports all major audio and MIDI file types, including PG Music’s PowerTracks Pro Audio files (*.SEQ) and Band-in-a-Box files (*.?G?).
- Support for MIDI and Karaoke files.
- Karaoke lyrics window.
- Piano roll window with graphic controller editing.
- Onscreen notation and lead sheet style printout.
- Virtual guitar fretboard and piano keyboard.
…and more!

It's come a long way since then! Visit and scroll down to the RealBand 2016 tab to see all the newest features in this popular program.

#TipTuesday - Export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Lists in Band-in-a-Box® 2016

One of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Windows is the ability to export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums lists to a spreadsheet.

To do this, press the [Copy List] button within the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Picker windows. This will put the entire list on a file that saves within your BB folder, but it will also open up right away as a Notepad document when you choose [OK] on the message that appears.

When the Notepad document opens up, just select the entire contents, and copy it to your clipboard. When you paste it into an Excel (or other spreadsheet) document, you'll see that it separates the information into easy-to-sort columns.

This feature is also available in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac.
