confused
Ok, recently purchased BIAB 2017 which came w/ Real Band, but my question is what is Real Tracks? Is it part of BIAB or part of Real Band and is it IN Real Band or a seperate download ?

RealTracks are the instruments that play over your chord chart of your song. They are audio files of top recording session players so you have real players accompanying your song project. They are the same for BIAB and RealBand and work with either program.

Charlie is correct.

Also, BIAB comes in various configurations, but the underlying program is the same in all. Same for RealBand (provided free). The difference is in how many RealTracks, RealDrums, and Styles you purchased. Also there are Bonus Paks offered each year.

BiaB is a unique composition tool that is not like any other program available. It uses artificial intelligence to compose music in a way that no other program can do.

RealBand is a little more generic. It belongs to a type of program called "Digital Audio Workstation," or DAW. It is analogous to a recording studio. There are a number of 'tracks,' each with its own instrument: piano, drums, bass, etc. There are a number of other programs that work this way.

Both programs can use Real Tracks.

It is possible to create a complete song without RT's. When you use them, its as if you called up some musicians to be on your song: Bob on piano, Tom on guitar, Mary on Bass. Each 'person' will play the chords you tell them to, in their own way. If you don't like what Bob did, take him out and get another piano player.

If you look closely at all the information on the RealTracks, you can see the musician's names. These are real people. They work for you now.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
