Creating: at the end of the RealDrums tracks you have Shots n Holds that you can use also to make up the the new intros, solos & endings.
To let them ringout put them in another track below:


NOTE: if you are making them for drums that don't have substyles eg: RockEven8, make a new folder RockEven8-Intros in the Drums root Directory.

Using them:
(Realband)
Intros: Set Bar Offset to -2, highlight bar -1 and 0 > Generate Intros.
Fills: Highlight any section > Generate Fills.
4 Bar Endings: Uncheck 2 Bar Ending, add 8 more bars to song, highlight
5 bars > Generate 4 Bar Endings
(Band in a Box)
Intros: F5 bar 1 set RealDrums > Intros, F5 set bar 2 set RealDrums > Normal.
Fills: F5 bar ? set RealDrums > Fills, F5 next bar set RealDrums back > Normal

Generate and Freeze Instrument tracks, Song Settings Uncheck 2 Bar Ending,
add 8 more bars to End, F5 5th bar Drums mute, F5 set RealDrums > 4barEndings.
