Video - Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Windows® - New Feature: MultiRiffs!

With our new Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Windows, we've majorly reworked the "MultiRiffs" feature! We've explained the newest MultiRiffs feature in our New Feature: MultiRiffs! video.

This feature allows you to interactively create sections of RealTracks on any track by choosing from multiple candidates (up to 20). Generate riffs for a section of a track, audition them, and pick one, either replacing or merging with the existing RealTracks. This can add life to old tracks, by improving sections that had problems to a better riff!
