Band-in-a-Box® and RealBand 2024
for Windows® are Here!

There are over 50 new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2024!

These include Many Major New Features. First, there is a new Tracks Window. Similar to most DAW tracks windows, this shows all the tracks, allowing lossless data manipulation of tracks in an environment familiar to DAW users. The new Tracks window includes specific support for creating loops and phrases using content from RealTracks. There are now Floating Windows Everywhere! Twelve legacy modal dialogs have been redone as non-modal floating windows so they can be used interactively with other functions. These include new floating windows for styles, RealTracks, RealDrums, loops, UserTracks, MIDI SuperTracks, Custom MIDI Tracks, MIDI Soloists, Melodists, F5 Bar Settings, Track Settings and Chord Options. Major GUI Enhancements include a tabbed MultiPicker Library window. This is a one-stop shop to pick tracks from any of the 8 track types. All pickers show a common interface with a similar look and functions for filters, search, selection, audition, and generation. Partial Track Generation for Every Track Type is added. Bar Settings (F5) and rests/shots/holds/pushes can be made for all 24 tracks. The new Chord Progression Builder allows you to interactively create your own progression by showing you the Best Next Chords at any point. There are over 800 Custom MIDI Tracks (with demos) that users can add as single MIDI tracks that follow the chords. The Playback Engine speed has been enhanced and uses multiple CPU Cores to speed generation and renders. There are Melodist & Soloist enhancements, support for reading LyricLab AI created lyric/chord files, Set Favorites for any track type, new Data filters for tracks, and more!

The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin has over 20 new features including near instant playback direct from disk, to audition various styles without creating WAV files. For Reaper DAW users, the Plugin has added built-in specific support for the Reaper DAW API allowing direct transfer of Band-in-a-Box files to/from Reaper tracks, including tiny lossless files of instructions which play audio instantly from disk. You can now load chords from MIDI files. There's support for Shots/Rest/Holds on Utility tracks, and more!

New RealTracks

222 new RealTracks for Band-in-a-Box® 2024 with great new jazz, blues, funk, and world styles.

  • Jazz RealTracks (Sets 430-436)
    Our new Jazz, Blues, Funk and World RealTracks include '60s soul jazz (10) featuring Mike Clark on drums, Miles Black on piano, and RealTracks Viktor Krauss on bass! We've also got funk and R&B horns (9) from Nashville Music Award winner, Chris West! Many requested RealTracks are also featured, including 2-handed jazz piano soloing (10) and fast bebop piano comping (4) from Miles Black, and bluesy New Orleans piano (4) from Kevin McKendree. There is also a set of "LA Jazz Pop" (12) styles, featuring electric and acoustic pianos, guitars, and basses playing the slick '70s jazz-pop style that originated in LA! And in the "world music" area, we've added many RealTracks firsts! There are new traditional Chinese instruments (7) such as guzheng (a plucked zither renowned for its rich and melodious tones), dizi (a Chinese bamboo flute), pipa (a plucked instrument similar to a mandolin or lute), and erhu, a bowed instrument similar to a violin. We also have new instruments with roots in Central and South America (7), such as the siku (a type of panpipe) and bongos
  • Rock-Pop RealTracks (Sets 437-443)
    Our new Pop & Rock RealTracks features lots of requests from you the user! There are more requested "southern soul" styles (9) with great guitars by Realtracks favorites Brent Mason and Pat Bergeson, that blend beautifully together. And there are drums, bass and percussion to go along with them too! We have two sets of requested Prog-Rock (22) RealTracks, with RealTracks newcomers Nick Schendzielos on bass, and Aaron Stechauner on drums, along with returning artists Nico Santora (guitar), Mike Durham (guitar), Wes Little (drums), and Brian Allen (bass). Nico, Aaron, and Nick also feature on new requested Modern Metal (14) styles. Showcasing their incredible skills on the keys are Charles Treadway and Kevin McKendree playing soulful organ (4) and electric and acoustic piano (10)! But that's not all, we've got a whole host of great modern electronic drum styles featuring Reggaeton (3), K-Pop (1), and Hip-Hop/Pop (2). And, there are new guitar and banjo styles (9), played in a style reminiscent of modern independent folk recordings
  • Country RealTracks (Sets 444-448)
    Our new Country & Americana RealTracks feature great new modern country, "bro" country, "vintage" country, praise & worship, and rootsy Americana! The modern country (19) styles feature RealTracks favorite Brent Mason, with multiple layers of guitars recorded for that "explosive" modern country sound! These styles also feature Johnny Hiland soloing on guitar, Eddie Bayers (14-time winner of the ACM "drummer of the year" award!) on drums, and veteran producer and musician Mike Harrison on bass. A subset of modern country is "bro country" (25), and we have new styles for that genre as well! There are also new praise & worship (10) styles, with bombastic tom-heavy grooves from Nashville drummer Garth Justice, and shimmering guitar from long-time PG Music collaborator Mike Durham. There are also new "Vintage Country" styles (14), with that old classic '50s country sound. These styles feature country swing and country waltz grooves with pedal steel, electric guitar, acoustic and electric bass, and a RealTracks first: tic-tac baritone guitar. This style is a distinctive playing method, where the baritone plays bass notes with a muted tone, giving it that great classic sound! And for the fans of the more "rootsy" side of Nashville, we have great Americana (17) fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bouzouki, and banjo from multi-instrumentalist Grammy winner Glen Duncan.
