Give the Gift of Music with Band-in-a-Box®!

Did you wait too long to purchase flowers, a card, or book a restaurant for Valentine's Day? Or, maybe material gifts just aren't your thing?

-Take that chord progression and start a new project in Band-in-a-Box (choose "Erase the Audio WAV file in BB" | Enable style)
-Head to the StylePicker window, search for a style for that song using the "Song Titles Browser" Feature (top right)
-Choose from the list provided

#TBT - The Release of RealTracks with Band-in-a-Box® 2008!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2007, we added RealDrums, which program users were THRILLED to see!

So, with Band-in-a-Box® 2008 we added RealTracks! Initially, 3 were released:
1. Real Pedal Steel
2. Real Acoustic Guitar
3. Tenor Sax soloing (RealSax)

Do you remember these? We do! We got a chance to "show them off" at Musikmesse that year, and the response was overwhelming - EVERYONE loves RealTracks! Adding real instruments played by top studio musicians adds an exciting human element to all your Band-in-a-Box songs!

Now there are over 2,900 RealTracks available in RealTracks Sets 1-352! Get them ALL with every Band-in-a-Box® 2020 UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, or Audiophile Edition.

Other new features added when we released Band-in-a-Box® 2008 included:
-Medley Maker
-Key signature changes at any bar
-"Fixed Do" Chord Entry and Display
...and more!

To reminisce on all the features released with older versions of Band-in-a-Box®, head to Help | Contents | Features within the program. There are separate lists going all the way back to Band-in-a-Box® Version 7!

New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows - Artist Browser

Did you know that there are over 160 Artists in our RealTracks & RealDrums library? Learn more about them when you're in the program by clicking aywhere in the "artist bio" within the RealTracks/RealDrums Picker or the [Artist Bio] button in other RealTracks/RealDrums selection dialogs - a Window will open the new Artist Browser dialog.

The Artist Browser dialog:
-Lists all artists and the instruments they play.
-Shows the total number of artists.
-Provides the biography of the artist for you to read
-Offers a text filter if available.
-Has a [More Info] button that launches the PG Music web page for that Artist.
