PG Music Inc. award-winning Band-in-a-Box intelligent music accompaniment software "2008 for Windows" is loaded with new features, like MultiStyles and a Medley Maker, and many other customer "wish list" requests. The result is more than fifty new features for Band-in-a-Box 2008.
RealTracks are audio instruments that replace the MIDI track with actual recordings of top studio musicians. These are not samples of single instrument hits; they are full recordings, from 1 to 8 bars in length, playing along in perfect sync with the other Band-in-a-Box tracks. The following RealTracks come with Band-in-a-Box 2008 — RealPedalSteel, RealSax (Tenor), and RealAcousticGuitar — with more on the way.
Band-in-a-Box MultiStyles can have up to 24 substyle variations — from "a" to "x" — in a song. The newest styles sets are MultiStyles, typically with 4 substyles per song (Intro or Pre-Verse, Verse, Chorus, and Break) and users can easily make their own.
The Medley Maker quickly makes a medley of Band-in-a-Box songs, including automatically generated transition bars and chords between the songs to smooth out the modulations between styles, tempos, and keys. Other new features include an enhanced Audio Chord Wizard, updated GUI, support for key signature changes, Karaoke CDG support and many more.
