Instrumental Studies 15: Minor Jazz Blues Guitar Soloing
Along with "rhythm changes" and "jazz blues", Minor Jazz Blues is one of the most common progressions in jazz, and is one that most teachers will agree is very important to master for a jazz student. With Instrumental Studies 15, you can study guitar solos by master guitarist Oliver Gannon, playing minor blues progressions in 5 common keys: Am, Cm, Dm, Em and Gm. With well articulated and dynamic phrases, each different key is a unique performance. Each track has high quality notation and tablature showing all of the slides, hammer on and pull offs and other techniques needed to learn this style of music. As each phrase flows fluently from one chord to the next, adjust the tempo up or down to suit your playing ability and learn at your own speed. Learning minor jazz blues guitar soloing has never been easier and it has never sounded this good! Learn more about Instrumental Studies.
MIDI SuperTracks Set 32: Jazz, New Age and Gospel Keys
This collection of MIDI SuperTracks provides a tasteful array of keyboard playing, ranging from the flavour of New Orleans styles, to the crunchy voicings of modern jazz piano, to the more open and consonant sounds of New Age and Gospel style piano playing. The range of these piano styles, coupled with the versatility and utility of SuperTracks, makes this set a must have for the keyboard enthusiast. Learn more about MIDI SuperTracks.
Look Ma! More MIDI 5
This special collection of jazz MIDI styles cannot be missed! In "Look Ma! More MIDI 5", we've created a cornucopia of modern jazz sounds, including a modern jazz waltz, disco jazz fusion, jazz rock, rumba fusion, and much, much more! We've also included some classics like a Dixieland quintet, multiple jazz blues styles, and fast jazz with trumpet. Don't let these original MIDI jazz arrangements go unnoticed! Learn more about MIDI Styles Sets.
RealCharts for all existing and new RealDrums
There are over 300 additional RealChart (transcriptions) for RealDrums with Drum Notation. This means that now ALL RealDrums in Band-in-a-Box have accompanying RealCharts! In addition, the MIDI that makes up these RealCharts can actually be used as the basis for MIDI drum parts. In Band-in-a-Box, the MIDI that makes up the RealCharts can be copied to a "utility" track, where it can trigger a MIDI drum patch. In the DAW plugin version of Band-in-a-Box, the MIDI can be dragged right from the plugin into a track in the DAW, where you can then also apply a MIDI drum patch. Learn more about RealCharts.

MultiStyles PAK 1
Due to popular demand, we've made an entire collection of MultiStyles just for you! Each MultiStyle has a total of 8 substyles for your nuanced arrangements! These styles come in three different genres: Country, Rock-Pop, and Jazz. Each genre has 10 MultiStyles. Plus, you also get their component styles. This gives you many more song demos and allows you to easily view RealTracks/RealDrums lists for all substyles from the StylePicker. Including the component styles, each genre PAK contains 50 styles. MultiStyles PAK 1 has a total of 30 new MultiStyles and 120 component styles. That makes a grand total of 150 styles! So what exactly did we dream up this time? Our jazz greats MultiStyle allows you to switch between piano and guitar comping, or select from two different solos. Our Jamaican groove selecta allows you to switch from ska at one section to reggae, island groove, or reggae with sax solo at another. A Tex-Mex country MultiStyle allows you to switch between a regular-time and double-time feel. And that's just the beginning. There's so much more in store! Once you dive into these professionally-mixed MultiStyles, you'll wonder how you ever made due with only two substyles per song! Use one substyle for a softer intro, another one for a restrained breakdown, then throw in a different and energetic middle-eight, or change it up with a solo. The possibilities are endless!

Artist Performance Set 10: More Celtic Flute with Geoff Kelly
Artist Performance Set 10 features more celtic flute and tin whistle from the very talented Geoff Kelly. In this set, Geoff plays a variety of flutes and whistles, and in each case the track indicates what specific instrument is played (ie, flute, low-D-whistle). In addition, on several tunes Geoff is joined in the tunes with previously released performances by Daniel Lapp on fiddle, and Quinn Bachand on tenor banjo and guitar. The set features a combination of traditional Celtic tunes, along with compositions by the great 17th-century harpist and composer Turlough O'Carolan, an important element in the Celtic musician's repertoire. With each artist performance track you also get notation showing exactly what is played and using Band-in-a-Box 2020 or later you can view 6/8 notation for tracks in that time signature. The superb talent and quality of each artist performance, combined with the Band-in-a-Box rhythm section, makes each of these traditional, timeless tunes come alive for you to enjoy!
