This was a good way to show off some of the new styles. And good to see some "new" people showing their efforts (and old favorites, as well).

Congratulations to the winners...

I'm hoping that there will be more contests like this. Win or lose, everyone really wins. The music was great; so many different genres and musical ideas. I was floored by the songs I heard.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for the music from those that didn't!

#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!

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:
