PG Music Inc. has released version 2009 of its popular, award-winning Band-in-a-Box® intelligent music accompaniment software for Macintosh®.
In announcing the release of Band-in-a-Box 2009, program author and creator Peter Gannon said, "We are thrilled to offer this new version of Band-in-a-Box for MacIntel computers. Macintosh users can now enjoy the REAL sounds of RealTracks and RealDrums; and other new features like RealStyles, RealCharts, the amazing Audio Chord Wizard, 'Direct-to-Disk' Audio Rendering and many more. As an added convenience, we now offer several Band-in-a-Box packages that are preinstalled on an included portable USB hard drive. We think this is a great option, and so do our customers."
Band-in-a-Box 2009 for Macintosh is designed for MacIntel and runs directly on the Intel chip making the speed of operations faster. The RealTracks and RealDrums can be used to replace the MIDI tracks in your arrangement. These are not MIDI patterns or samples of single instrument hits, but actual audio instruments recorded by top studio musicians that replace the MIDI track and play along in perfect sync with other Band-in-a-Box tracks. There are 39 RealTracks Sets, with a total of almost 200 RealTracks for Jazz, Country, Rock, Pop, Metal, Blues and Bluegrass! The amazing Audio Chord Wizard automatically figures out the chords from any MP4A, AIFF or other audio files and displays them in Band-in-a-Box; and the new Direct Render to Disk feature allows you to save your files directly as audio files (AIFF, M4A) or internet formats. Many GUI enhancements have been added, including new toolbars and more! Full details, including videos and audio demos are at the PG Music Inc. website.
