A blast from the past... the introduction of the Audiophile Edition with Band-in-a-Box 2008.5!

The first Audiophile purchase included the WAV files for all the RealTracks & RealDrums that were available at that time: RealTracks Sets 1-9 and RealDrums Sets 1-20. It shipped pre-installed on a 250GB USB hard drive - take a look...

Band in a Box, Darth Vader Edition!

Seriously, a leap forward for those of us who needed the higher quality. And those hard drives were cool.

That's the coolest looking camera I've seen! grin grin

Seriously though, the invention of Realtracks was the main reason I got into BBox in the first place... which may sound strange now when it seems all I've been raving about lately is too much focus on RT's at the cost of Midi progressions in the program, but there ya go smirk

The audiophile RealTracks are uncompressed and take up about 11 times the space of the compressed files (and you have those, too). So PG Music had to supply drives of 1 TB, quite large for that time. They would frequently have a loose connection from shipppng (30-second fix). Otherwise they are great drives even now.

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
