Thanks S.P

FYI, RealBand does not have this limit, if you want to move a very long song over to there.

The most obvious apparent reason is that 256 is the highest number one can count to using a base 2 8 bit counting system.

I just recall to all BIAB users that the real time duration of a song given in BIAB is erroneous. this has discussed in the BIAB forum some month ago, and PG people are aware of this issue. Waiting for some fix.

Hi!

Using BIAB to do transcriptions like http://djangoreinhardtforbandinabox.shoply.com/ i definitely need more tracks than 256 for jazz solos from the big ones! As for Real Band i think it's a heavy program that's doing fine the job, but I'm still in love with BB.

Thanks S.P.

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Thank You!

Take a look at some of the recent feedback we've received from program users just like you:

"I started using Band-in-a-Box October 2016 . It's been money very well spent. I'm now nearing the finish of my first All Originals Cd. I let a local musician hear some of the songs and he was amazed at the quality. Guys it takes time and effort to learn but its worth it 100%!"
-John S.

"Amazing RealTracks I have used these on 30 or more songs! Some even used complex chords that amazed me how well the Banjo still worked. Unbelievable Software! All the backup band you will ever need no matter what your skill level!"
-Tom C.

"Like lots of others I use it all the time, putting in the chords of a tune, choosing the right style and tempo is a godsend, I'm a jazz musician and playing tunes and improvising with chords in front of you is brilliant, less than an hour ago I was playing my tenor sax along with my Band-in-a-Box backing band."
-Barrie M.

"I love Band-in-a-Box! I use it every day to practice, compose, and teach guitar lessons. Keep up the great work, PG!"
-Brian P.

"A Great business....a great program and a fantastic way to easily create your own songs....or backing tracks to play along with.....a program that everyone should get...."
-Leonard A.

"Band-in-a-Box has been one of my favorite programs since it first came out. Wonderful concept, very well executed."
-Doug S.

"Amazing Software. Use it all the time. Makes very convincing backing tracks!!!"
