I thought it rather fitting (since yesterday was "Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day"), to remind our program users that not only can you write a song with Band-in-a-Box®, you can play along with your very own band with Band-in-a-Box® too!

With so many features available in the program, it can be easy to forget the Band-in-a-Box® mantra:

Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you'd like, and Band-in-a-Box® does the rest, automatically generating a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns in a wide variety of popular styles!

And playing along with your very own on-demand backup band is the best way to master your skills, your Unique Talent - since no one plays quite like you!

Have you recorded your own performace with Band-in-a-Box® backing you up? Share it here, and we'll celebrate your unique talent too!

We actually had that feature in BIAB, many years ago, for a very short time.

The earliest RealDrums, introduced in (I think) 2007 a year before RealTracks, would occasionally misfire. I remember reporting the problem in beta testing as "the drummer fell down the stairs". It was an accurate description of what that might sound like.

But alas, RealDrums work great and continue to amaze. If you want a drunken drummer, you'll have to find your own.

49 of Your Problems Solved with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!

We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.
