December 06, 2006 PG Music Adds RealDrums to Band-in-a-Box 2007 for Windows®

These are audio drum styles that replace the MIDI Drum track with actual recordings of top studio Jazz/Rock/Country drummers! These are not "samples" of single drum hits; they are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars, playing along in perfect sync with the other Band-in-a-Box tracks. For example, choose a brushes style, and you will now hear lush Jazz brushes, exactly as you'd hear if the drummer was in the room with you. The results are dramatically better than MIDI. They sound like a real drummer, because they are recordings of a real drummer. And adding a real instrument to the mix makes all of the Band-in-a-Box parts sound more authentic. As well as improved drum sounds, you are hearing the exact rhythms played by the drummer, including features not seen in MIDI (subtle drum rolls, variations in ride cymbal taps, complex fills, etc.). A "RealDrums" dialog allows you to set whether you want to hear RealDrums with all styles, no styles, or somewhere in between.

Our customers just love the new RealDrums in Band-in-a-Box 2007 for Windows. Here is what a few of them are saying:

“Again, I'm so stoked about how good everything sounds I can hardly stand it. This is just killer. I just spent about 10 minutes listening to Wave, Song For My Father and Masquerade and they sound so much better there's no comparison. I want the rest of the drum files like a kid waiting for Christmas.”

“Like everyone else, I'm excited "outta my mind" about RealDrums....”

“This is something that I never would have imagined you implementing, Peter, and it looks to be a cut above all the other drum solutions out there, at least as far as using with BIAB is concerned.”

“RealDrums do sound awesome now. Thanks for a great new feature.”

“The real drums sound awesome. This is a cool feature. (Real Bass will be next on my wish list!)”

December 06, 2006 Band-in-a-Box 2007

Victoria, BC Canada December 1, 2006 – PG Music Inc. has released the 2007 version of its popular Band-in-a-Box® intelligent music software for Windows®.

In announcing the release of Band-in-a-Box 2007, program author and creator Peter Gannon said, "This version of Band-in-a-Box has surprised many people. The addition of RealDrums - actual live drum tracks - adds a human element that brings the music to life. It’s quite remarkable to see the Chord Wizard “read" chords from MP3, WAV, and WMA audio files and write them into Band-in-a-Box. There’s a Reharmonist feature that works out a chord progression for a single-note melody or rewrites existing progressions, which fulfills one of our all-time leading requests. There are many more exciting features, so we hope people have fun with Band-in-a-Box 2007.”
