Victoria BC Canada, December 19, 2011 – PG Music Inc. has released version 2012 of its popular, award winning Band-in-a-Box® intelligent music accompaniment software for Windows® with over 50 new features and 101 more studio quality RealTracks by top session pros.
Band-in-a-Box 2012 allows a different VSTi or DXi softsynth to be assigned to each track for multiple synths playing on a song. Up to four VST or DX audio plug-ins, like reverb and delay, can be applied to each individual track. The AmpliTube® CS guitar amp simulator is included along with over 150 “Direct Input” guitar based RealTracks. These clean DI guitar recordings can be customized, so all of the added effects come from the guitar amp simulator – or any other VST or DX plug-in. The new “Loops” feature plays an audio loop on any track, and individual MIDITracks can now be taken from any Band-in-a-Box style and played on a track in your song. Other new features include updates and streamlining for popular features like the StylePicker, Notation, and more. And there have been updates to the “BB Remote” app, which controls the desktop version of Band-in-a-Box from an iPhone®, iPad®, or Android device.
In announcing the release of Band-in-a-Box 2012, program author and creator Peter Gannon said, “Band-in-a-Box 2012 is more powerful than ever. Now users can apply their full array of VST and DirectX plug-ins and softsynths to Band-in-a-Box tracks, along with the backing of 101 new Jazz, Country, and Pop/Rock RealTracks recorded by top studio musicians.”
Band-in-a-Box 2012 for Windows includes RealBand 2012 – a full-featured DAW and Band-in-a-Box accompaniment generator – with over 40 new features including MultiRiffs, the ability to generate up to seven “same but different” versions of a RealTrack at once and use one or all of them in the arrangement.
