Victoria BC Canada, April 26, 2012 – PG Music Inc. has released version 2012 of its popular, award-winning Band-in-a-Box® intelligent music accompaniment software for Mac® with over 50 new features and 101 more studio quality RealTracks by top session pros.
In announcing the  release of Band-in-a-Box 2012, program author and creator Peter Gannon  said, “This new version of Band-in-a-Box for Macintosh adds over 50 new  features and enhancements plus 101 more Jazz, Country, and Rock/Pop RealTracks, a total of 202 new RealTracks since version  2011. This brings the total number of RealTracks to more than 870.  That’s more than 1,000 hours of studio quality accompaniment with great  session players!”
In addition to  Band-in-a-Box 2012 and 101 great sounding new RealTracks, the AmpliTube®  CS guitar amp simulator is included, along with over 150 “Direct Input”  guitar-based RealTracks. Users can customize these clean DI guitar recordings by generating clean Guitar tracks inside  Band-in-a-Box and then use the Drag ‘n’ Drop feature to load them into a  DAW (GarageBand, Logic etc.), and add custom amp and pedal F/X using  the new guitar amp simulator. “Loops” support has been added, allowing the user to play an audio loop (M4A, MP4, AIFF, or  WAV file) on any track. Custom MIDITracks can now be taken from any  Band-in-a-Box style and played on a track within your song. EZ selection  of “DrumGrooves” has been added; these are different grooves within RealDrums styles. Other new features include the option  for simpler RealTracks, styles, and song arrangements, and there are  many more.
Full details, including video and audio demos are at the PG Music Inc. website, www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.htm.
The award-winning  Band-in-a-Box is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program for  Windows or Mac. 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 RealTracks - audio instruments that replace the MIDI track with actual recordings  of top studio musicians.
PG Music Inc. is a  leading innovator of computer music software that is easy to use,  powerful, and fun. The award-winning Band-in-a-Box intelligent music  accompaniment program is the flagship product of more than 30 of PG Music Inc.'s MIDI music and multimedia titles available.  PG Music Inc. is online at www.pgmusic.com.
