What great news, thanks for the notification.

I have had my eyes on the First Version of this for a LONG time. The videos on the first version look way cool. Just waiting for a big sale. But now looks like I just pay the price and go with the version 2.

Is it a completely new product? I have the first one and it does not look like they are offering me a discount or upgrade pricing.

New product, not an upgrade. Different guitars (now added a 12 string), several new features which allows to separated the bass strings.

Just a bit of info:

Native Instruments has released Session Guitarist – Strummed Acoustic 2, a new addition to the Session Guitarist series. Strummed Acoustic 2 complements the original Strummed Acoustic instrument, adding two carefully selected, vintage acoustic guitars – a 6-string Martin and 12-string Guild – plus more strummed patterns and new performance controls. Strummed Acoustic 2 runs in Kontakt 5 and the free Kontakt 5 Player and is available at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / ¥ 12,800 / £89 / AU$159.

Strummed Acoustic 2 includes two renowned instruments, captured in precise detail and played by skilled session players. Users can choose the warm, mellow tone of a small-bodied mahogany 6-string from 1934. Or they can select the full yet articulate sound of a benchmark jumbo 12-string – first produced in the late 1960s.

Strummed Acoustic 2 also introduces two new features:

'Separate Bass' patterns – played on the lower strings of the 6-string guitar – allows users to add custom bass lines or add extra low notes to chords to create slash chords (e.g. C/E, Dm/A).

The Tap Rhythm Finder enables users to quickly find the strumming pattern they need by tapping or playing a rhythm on a keyboard.


Strummed Acoustic 2 includes an extensive library of strumming patterns, with over 50% more content than the original Strummed Acoustic instrument. Each pattern features a rhythmic signature of dynamic accents, perfect for a diverse set of genres from rock, folk, and country, to bluegrass, Latin, pop, and more. Flexible performance controls enable users to recreate the musicality of pro studio guitarists from their keyboard. Sound control features and effects allow users to customize their sound and place the guitar perfectly in a mix.

Strummed Acoustic 2 was created in collaboration with drumasonic – the same sample instrument team who helped produce Strummed Acoustic. Using an array of vintage ribbon and condenser microphones plus boutique preamps, drumasonic captured every nuance of these classic acoustic instruments. A custom-built mounting rig and a laser-based microphone positioning system helped ensure precision and consistency for every chord and pattern during recording.

Thanks JMD, I appreciate your contribution also.
Yes it is good you can use it with: Free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER (included in free KOMPLETE PLAYERS), or KONTAKT 5
so those interested don't need to buy the full Kontackt 5.

The bit I liked was the open string between changes option for more realism, you would just need to add that D# key switch in before the change.

One would have to say impressive. A lot of work went into the development for sure.

Very interesting indeed! Sure could use a good strumming acoustic as I'm not a guitar player. Please inform all if a good deal is found.

Looks very cool indeed. Thing is, I've not used RealBand much .. can someone tell me, in a for-dummies way, how, in RealBand, to do have the both the midi chord track and the other midi track, on which I'm playing the keyswitches, both send data to the Kontakt instrument? I'd be grateful for any help.

Just set another track to midi by right click, set to same channel, then set it to Kontakt also by right click > Specific VST/DXi for MIDI Track.
You can add keyswitches to the midi chord track if you just want it all on one track.
Set Kontakt to Omni or same channel as track/s.

To use the midi chord track in Biab follow this guide http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=398406#
add your key switches in the piano roll of the midi chord track.

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
