October 24, 2018  -  Automatic Music Features in Band-in-a-Box®!

Encourage your creativity with the help of the Automatic Music Features included in your Band-in-a-Box® purchase!

The Melodist
Compose a brand-new song quickly with the help of this feature! There are many different options within this feature to help – you can choose the style/feel, select whether you want the chords, intro, or any style changes, etc. to your song, and SO MUCH MORE! Press the [Melodist] button to see all the choices offered within this feature.

Automatic Intros
Although this feature is part of The Melodist, it’s also possible to have Band-in-a-Box® generate an intro for ANY of your songs! Just press the [Song Form] button within the program, and you can choose your Intro Length, Chord Types, select the option for pedal bass (if wanted), and more!

Automatic Song Title Generation
This is one of my favorite features!
Writers block – we’ve all been there! Fortunately, Band-in-a-Box® can come up with a song title for you. Head to Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title – see for yourself! This feature can be personalized for your vocabulary too - just open the titl1.txt file within Applications | Band-in-a-Box | Data, follow the steps, and add away!

The Soloist
Automatic Solo Generation with Band-in-a-Box®! There are two ways to select and add a solo to your song. The “Best Soloist" feature presents a pre-selected list of soloists to choose from, and the “Select Soloist" dialog lets you choose from the full list of soloists available.

The Guitarist
Make and learn professional quality guitar chord solos using Band-in-a-Box®!
Use this feature, and the program will intelligently arrange the melody into a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. Select from among many Guitarists to create your arrangement. And you can define your own Guitarists, choosing parameters such as strum speed, types of voicings (Pop/Jazz), embellishments, and many more!

Melody Embellisher
Use this feature, and Band-in-a-Box® will automatically change the timing to add syncopation, change durations to achieve staccato or legato playing, add grace notes, slurs, extra notes, vibrato, and other effects to the melody track – just like a real musician would… the result: a livelier and more realistic melody - and it's different every time!

Detailed information included in Chapter 9: Automatic Music Features within the online manual.
