It continually amazes me how I can enter chord progressions, listen to a RealTracks or UserTracks, transpose the chord progression to another key signature, regenerate and there it is!

Sometimes when I'm first starting to build a song I'll enter just an intro and first verse (about 20 bars), generate, listen, transpose to a different key and continually listen until I find the key signature that "feels right".

The ability to easily transpose has always been a strength for midi but RealTracks and UserTracks lets me easily transpose audio.

Don't have to worry about cut and paste, don't have to perform crossfades, don't even have to retype chords. Just change the key signature and BiaB or RealBand takes care of the rest of the work normally required to transpose audio.

To have the ability to work with audio the same way I work with midi is amazing. I transpose much more than I need to just because I can and it's fun.

I always appreciate the skill of the musicians that play on the RealTracks. To come up with riffs that sound as good in B minor as it does when played in G takes a lot more skill than I'll ever have.

My favorite thing is that Band-in-a-Box and RealBand allow me to easily transpose audio as midi.

I completely agree, Band-in-a-Box's audio transposition is insanely cool and reminds me of Clarke's Third Law: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" (you can tell that I know nothing about computer programming!).

But I also find it fun to crank the BPM up to 500 or down to 30 just to see what happens grin

Ok band, Caledonia at 500. Here we go.

What? How come nobody came in? I counted it out.

Ok I'll count it again.

- Well, go ahead and count already.

Changing a song to 500bpm reminds me of the movie Drumline. Love that snare roll sound.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
