Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

"Use it daily, I love it!"

"Great tool! I've been using it for years to lay out original tunes and to create my version of cover tunes, including Salsa music."

"Incredible Software! Especially love the MultiStyles!"

"New updates always exceed expectations - good support as well!"

"BIAB continues to be an amazing too for capturing tunes and quickly preparing accompaniments and charts. The ability to kick out midi to import into Sibelius has been really useful!"

"A great tool to jam with if you're a soloist!"

"One great thing about Band-in-a-Box is that you can think of a song you'd like to perform and generate a decent arrangement of it, to which you can actually sing, in 15 minutes. (Did that this evening...)"

"A brilliant piece of music software! I've been using it for years!"

"Awesome algorithm, super quality records for real tracks. I've never seen a program like this"

"It's given me hours of enjoyment coming up with ideas. A wonderful way to conceptualize your ideas for your own needs and purposes. The best music creation software I've ever known. This BIAB program is very clever!"

"Band in a Box Continues to Impress! A user of BIAB 2005 and 2008, I just purchased 2021 Ultra on the Hard Drive. I ordered it on an early Wednesday evening and received it in less than 48 hours. User interface very intuitive - up and running in less than 9 minutes. Very clean and useful notices. Sounds great!"

I love the flexibility of BIAB. I am not hooked to just one Genre of music. So, whenever the mood strikes I'll check out the Style Picker, find a foundation that I want to work with and make it my own with minimal effort. It's as easy as loading a Demo and make changes to make it a new tune with my personal touch of music (guitar and keyboards). Love BIAB, and I will keep upgrading if I can afford it!

Band in a box is an undervalued Music software, which is my opinion.
Although I said a lot of questions in the forum, I must admit that band in a box is great.
Officials should also know how to make progress in the next step. I believe band in a box will be better and better.
The general trend of computer music production is simple and fast. From the first day of its birth, band in a box has been working in this direction for decades to make music simply and quickly. This is obvious to all of us. come on.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
