Band-in-a-Box 2014 for Windows - Swedish Update!

Band-in-a-Box 2014 Svensk manual för Windows finns nu för nedladdning.
Download...

Det finns några nya spännande funktioner i Band-in-a-Box 2014. Vi har gjort om GUI, snyggare och med bättre känsla, och många nya tidssparande funktioner tillagda. Nya Verktygsknappar, Sång/Stil områden, on-screen mixer, omgjort ackordblad med handskrivna "verkligt" utseende på ackordfonter med mera. Du kan nu skapa egna RealTracks – vi kallar dessa Användarspår – och du kan använda dem som vanliga RealTracks. Spela in dig (i en DAW), tillsammans med några BB sånger, lägg dem i mappen Användarspår, och du är klar! Det finns en bekväm Snabblyssning av stilar, RealTracks, och RealDrums så att du snabbt kan lyssna på dem för att välja ut de bästa till din sång. Loopar stöder nu Acidized Loops, så att tempo/ackordgrundton nu är automatisk. Stöd för FretLight® gitarr har lagts till. Du kan nu höra Band-in-a-Box sjunga, med inbyggt stöd tillagd för den populära online vokalsynten "Sinsy." En Legato Stråkar funktion optimerar automatiskt MIDI stråkstämmor för att undvika att spela om samma toner. Allt kan bli starkare – en ny Master Volym låter dig höja volymen i alla sånger med en enda inställning.

Our Website Has Been Updated!

We have updated our website shopping area with a new "My Account" page. You can access this by clicking on the "My Account" link in the page header. We will be adding features to the "My Account" area that allow you to download your orders and manage serial numbers.

Note: The User Forums account is not currently connected to this – rather, it is your "shopping cart" login. We're working on merging the accounts for a future update.
