Get to Know the Drum Track Enhancement in Band-in-a-Box® 2017

We just released 160 new RealStyles with Xtra Styles PAK 3 that use the new 2017 RealDrums features, like half-time/double-time mode and Multi-Drums.

Multi-Drums allow you to put multiple drum/percussion parts, drum loops, UserTracks drums, and even RealTracks on the same Drums track, with volume mixer adjusting levels. For example, you can add single drums instruments (e.g. Tambourine and Shaker), a bass drum loop, and UserTracks drums to BossaBrushes Drums track. Multi-Drums can be stored with the song, style, or listed separately in the RealDrums Picker (e.g. Danny and Alex Jazz Swing with congas [Multi]).

Single Drums are RealDrums that just have a single percussion instrument like tambourine, shaker, or bongos. You can easily add the single drums to Multi-Drums in the Create Multi-Drums dialog.

To learn even more about these new features, check out the "Band-in-a-Box 2017 New Feature - Drums Track Enhancement" tutorial, here: www.pgmusic.com/bbw2017newfeatures4.htm
