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.
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.
