RealDrums Stems Set 1(Included in the Free Bonus PAK)
Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Mac has introduced a new feature "RealDrums Stems," and this set of audio files gives you some great Country and Americana RealDrum stems to utilize this feature! The "RealDrums Stems" feature allows you to select a RealDrum that has this feature enabled, and then when you generated it, it ALSO generates the SAME drum part, but putting each of the microphones used to record the session on its own track! So, rather than just a stereo mix of the drums, you're ALSO getting, for example, the mics on both sides of the kick drum, the hi-hat mic, the room mics, etc. This allows you to mix the drums yourself, so you can get your own distinct sound for the drum kit! This first RealDrums Stems set contains some of our most popular Country and Americana RealDrums. The Americana RealDrums in this collection feature 10 different grooves, and use both brushes and sticks. Because the intention for these RealDrums was to get a really rootsy feel, it was recorded with only 7 mics, and so there are 7 stems for each of these RealDrums styles. This set ALSO includes our very popular "Nashville Radio" RealDrums, with 7 slick radio-ready grooves! Since the intention with these was a much more full, "produced" sound, there were more mics used in this session, so there are 10 stems available with each groove. Learn more...
RealDrums Stems 2(Included in the 49-PAK)
RealDrums Stems Set 2 gives you even more RealDrums to utilize the new Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Mac feature "RealDrums Stems"! And this set gives you an amazing 36 RealDrums styles each with 5 to 16 stems, including PERCUSSION stems! The stems give you access to the individual mics that made up the recording of the drum kit, and generate in sync with the main RealDrums style, allowing you FULL control to mix the drums into your song as you like, with different amounts of reverb focusing on the different drums, or using gates, compression, etc. on the different stems. These stems are not isolated, for example the snare mic will certainly pick up the cymbals and toms around it, but they give you the ability to blend the different parts of the drum kit as you like. With many of these RealDrums however, there are ALSO stems of the PERCUSSION that make up the RealDrums, and those ARE isolated, since they were recorded as overdubs. This gives you even MORE control, as these CAN be used to mix and match with OTHER RealDrums! Learn more...
Over 400 Playable RealTracks (sfz sforzando files)(Included in the Free Bonus PAK)

This cool feature allows you to add MIDI notes to the same RealTrack that is playing, either at the same time, or alternating back and forth. And these sounds were all made to correspond with specific RealTracks, and in most cases were created using the same instrument, and by the same RealTracks artist. This means you can get the RealTracks to play the notes you want at key parts of the performance, either augmenting or replacing what the RealTracks is playing, for the section you want to change.

Everything you need to know in
less than 6 minutes!
All Tracks are equal
Now all 24 tracks (8 main tracks and 16 Utility tracks) have the same capabilities. You can generate RealTracks, RealDrums, MIDI SuperTracks, Loops, etc. on any track. Styles can be made using up to 24 tracks. You can edit audio on any track, not just the Audio and Utility tracks.
You can now customize the RealTracks performance by adding your own notes. You will then hear those notes using a MIDI sound created from the RealTracks recording. This means you can get the RealTracks to play the notes you want at key parts of the performance, either augmenting or replacing what the RealTracks is playing, for any sections in the song.
This feature allows you to interactively create sections of RealTracks on any track by choosing from multiple candidates (up to 20). Generate riffs for a section of a track, audition them, and pick one, either replacing or merging with the existing RealTracks. This can add life to old tracks, by improving sections that had problems to a better riff!
MicroChords (Multiple Chords per Beat)
You can now enter up to 4 chords per beat. Previously limit was 1 chord per beat, but now you can have chords on 8th notes, triplets, or 16ths notes. This is especially useful on slow songs. You can select which tracks will play the MicroChords, allowing some tracks to play fast moving chord progressions and others to play the main chords.
You can enter rhythmic patterns to be played by selected tracks for selected bars. For example, you might want the guitar and bass to play a specific 16th rhythm in a funk song, while the piano and sax stick with the normal feel.
Node-based volume automation allows fine volume control of any track for fades, crescendos, mutes, etc.
Drum stems are separate tracks from the different mics in the RealDrums recording. Currently, drums stems are available for 50 RealDrums, but there are more to come.
