All of their midi drum loop packs are on sale for %50 off, which comes to $9.95. They work with quite a few different platforms, including EZDrummer2. I think I'll probably get a few, I already have their blues sets which are pretty good.

I've been a user of BIAB for a long time now. I would really like to see some styles created for Traditional Black Gospel, like Mahalia Jackson, Marlon Williams, the Caravans, Albertina Walker, Alex Bradford...etc. Also would like to see more styles for Old Southern Gospel such as the Statesmen Quartet, Blackwoods, The Rebels, Cathedral Quartet.

I'm a big fan of the "Download Manager" within Band-in-a-Box® for Windows - it's a great tool to confirm or help with the installation of your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows program! What does the Download Manager do? Automatically installs Band-in-a-Box content (RealTracks, RealDrums, etc.) in the background, so you don't have to sit there the whole time! It can also confirm that you've completely installed your purchase. How do you use it? Within the program, go to Help | Utilities | Run Downl

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
