You can hear and play along to many song ideas and go from “nothing” to
“something” in a very short period of time with Band-in-a-Box as your “on
demand” backup band.
Band-in-a-Box is so easy to use!
Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C,
Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you’d like, and Band-in-a-Box does the
rest, automatically generating a complete professional-quality arrangement
of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns in a wide variety of
popular styles plus optional live audio tracks with RealDrums and
that’s not all...
Band-in-a-Box is a powerful and creative music composition tool for
exploring and developing musical ideas with near-instantaneous feedback.
Over the years many features have been added to Band-in-a-Box – Notation
and Lyrics, Piano Roll, 16-channel MIDI Multitracks, Harmonization, the
StyleMaker and StylePicker, a live performance Conductor window, Medley
Maker, and 24 –substyle Multistyles. The Soloist and the Melodist are
popular “intelligent” features that generate professional solos or even
create whole new songs from scratch. RealDrums adds the human element of a
live drummer while RealTracks add even more live session musicians,
bringing the entire Band-in-a-Box arrangement to life. The Audio Chord
Wizard has the amazing ability to analyze, extract, and show the chords
from audio recordings on-screen and then write them to the Band-in-a-Box
The inclusion of digital audio features makes Band-in-a-Box the perfect
tool for creating, playing, and recording your music with MIDI, vocals,
and acoustic instruments. Band-in-a-Box for Windows® can also record an
acoustic instrument or voice to add to the composition, with processing
through its own DirectX audio effects. Its built-in TC Helicon audio
harmonies will turn your audio track into multiple harmony parts or adjust
its pitch, with vibrato and scooping effects for realistic vocal styles
and up to sixteen choral parts.
You can print out your finished creation with lyrics, chords, repeats and
endings, DC markings and codas, or save it as a graphics file for web
publication or to e-mail to a friend. And when you're ready to let others
hear your composition, you can burn it directly to an audio CD. Or save
your composition as a Windows Media File (or in any other compressed
formats you have) for a file that’s “Internet ready.”
You'll have even more fun making automatic medleys, playing your favorite
song lists in the Band-in-a-Box Jukebox, and singing along to your Karaoke
files with CDG graphics.
