New Advanced Pop UserTracks Templates Available!

Looking for some advanced templates to help you make UserTracks? Click here for 10-minute, 20-minute and 30-minute templates!

Making advanced UserTracks is basically exactly the same process as making UserTracks from the basic 1-minute template. The only difference is that instead of recording one song, you record multiple songs.

The benefits of recording the longer templates are:
- More material recorded means more variety from bar-to-bar when the UserTrack is used.
- Both major and minor endings will work.
- More chord types are included. For example, if you're using a UserTrack made from the 1-minute template, if a user enters Em9, it will simply play Em. But, if you've recorded a longer template that includes m9 chords, you can make sure it actually plays a m9.
- Commonly used Slash chords are included, for example C/E, G/D, Am/G.

2,000 Hours of RealTracks for Band-in-a-Box!

RealTracks Sets 1-205 include 2,000 hours of studio recordings of REAL MUSICIANS!
To see how many hours of RealTracks are in each Band-in-a-Box for Windows package, click here.

What are RealTracks? RealTracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). They follow the chord progression that you have entered, so you hear an authentic audio accompaniment or solo.

RealTracks are not "samples"... They are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing in perfect sync with the other tracks. Choose from pre-made Band-in-a-Box Styles, or combine RealTracks instruments to make your own band.

You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can! Adding REAL instruments played by TOP MUSICIANS to your compositions brings an exciting human element ... and that's just the beginning!
