My Mac Band in a Box Audiophile 2017 style counter shows 5,478 styles .

Do we really need all those or do we really need to buy more ?

Working with 5 thousand styles is astounding and at times beyond comprehension.

+1, when 5,400 of them are country and jazz, I'd say those styles are pretty much covered! /s

Seriously though, having to wade through 5k+ variations of the same style really makes my day ... yes more alternate styles please.

Don't even mention the filters, when I can count on one hand the results I get when done filtering for taste. Don't get me wrong I am enjoying the current styles, but it's like the OP said astounding and beyond comprehension.

You are correct CoolBreeze. I never thought that of that number of styles i have only about 78 are " other " genre.

Indeed it is fun to play/compose a Latin song selecting/using one of those Western Country twang styles with the demo that uses a Hawaiian guitar .

If i had the talent and temperament i could create my own style since Band in a Box provides the tools and instructions. There may even be a Window Band in a Box video to follow along.

Never the less I'm still puzzled how Band in a Box user can make use of 5thousand plus styles and then also spend more money buying more.

Never the less Band in a Box is still one of favorite music programmes ( speaking Mac of course ). More than often i use it to quickly sketch my musical ideas and compositions.

I don't know, but it does seem fun. I look forward to building up my collection. I'm also looking forward to going through each and every one of them trying to see what I can do with it.

Yeah they may all sound like the same style before, but once I'm done with them, I wouldn't be surprised the box walked out on me. Still it is quickly becoming my favorite on windows.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
