All RealTracks Sets (375 Total)

What are RealTracks? RealTracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). They follow the chord progression that you have entered, so you hear an authentic audio accompaniment or solo.

RealTracks are not "samples"... They are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing in perfect sync with the other tracks. Choose from pre-made Band-in-a-Box® Styles, or combine RealTracks instruments to make your own band.

You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can! Adding REAL instruments played by TOP MUSICIANS to your compositions brings an exciting human element ... and that's just the beginning!

  • RealTracks Set 201 : Brent Mason Nylon & Electric Video Demo

    Known as "the most recorded guitarist in Nashville," Brent Mason has become a favorite among Band-in-a-Box users, and this critically acclaimed master is back with a whole new RealTracks Set! RealTracks Set 200 features both electric and nylon guitar RealTracks, playing both swing and even grooves. The nylon RealTracks are "background" styles which are melodic in nature, but are less busy, allowing for a singer or soloist to play over top. The electric guitar styles really sing, and are full of uplifting energy. All styles include accurate RealCharts that not only allow you to see all the notes in notation & TAB, but also show you exactly how it was played on the guitar fretboard. For students, this is an indispensible tool. You can also speed them up and slow them down, making them extremely versatile, as they can be used over a very wide tempo range. The electric guitars use Brent Mason's signature tone, but they also have 'direct input', or 'DI' versions. This is the dry signal that was recorded directly from the guitar (before it went into his amp), which allows you to use guitar amp modeling software (such as AmpliTube, included with Band-in-a-Box) to get your own killer tone!
