What is Band-in-a-Box?
Band-in-a-Box is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program for your multimedia computer. You can hear and play along to many song ideas and go from "nothing" to "something" in a very short period of time with Band-in-a-Box as your "on demand" backup band.

Band-in-a-Box is a powerful and creative music composition tool for exploring and developing musical ideas with near-instantaneous feedback. Over the years many features have been added to Band-in-a-Box - Notation, Lyrics, Melody Tracks, Harmonization, and a programmable StyleMaker. The Soloist and the Melodist are two major "intelligent" features; the Soloist generates professional quality solos over any chord progression, the Melodist can create songs from scratch with Chords, Melodies, Intros, Solos, and even a Title!

Band-in-a-Box for Windows can also record an acoustic instrument or voice to add to the composition, with processing through DirectX audio effects. Its built-in audio harmonies will turn your audio track into multiple harmony parts and even adjust its pitch by tracking the Band-in-a-Box Melody track. The inclusion of digital audio features makes Band-in-a-Box the perfect tool for creating, playing, and recording your music with MIDI, vocals, and acoustic instruments.

You can print out your finished creation with repeats and endings, DC markings and codas, or save it as a graphic file for web publication or to e-mail to a friend. And when you're ready to let others hear your composition, you can burn it directly to an audio CD. Or save your composition as a Windows Media File or in other compressed formats for a file that's "Internet ready.

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. Band-in-a-Box automatically generates a complete professional quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar and strings in a wide variety of popular styles. (Jazz, Pop, Country, Classical and more.)

New Features:

  • There's a new fully-featured Piano Roll Window, similar to the type found in many sequencer programs. This allows you to edit the Melody or Soloist tracks with greater ease and precision.
  • The Guitar window is enhanced, and now supports Alternate Guitar tunings, including DADGAD, Drop D, Double Drop D, Open G and 11 others, including Nashville High Strung tunings! Guitar bends now show up in real-time on the guitar fretboard.
  • New 3, 4, and 5-part Jazz Harmonies are added with voicing in Fourths.
  • Auto Endings are added for styles that don't have endings, such as styles made from MIDI files. Synthesizer Patch file lists (.PAT files) can now be made easily by converting PowerTracks or Cakewalk patch lists.
  • Jazz Chord-Symbol Graphics (triangles for major, circles for diminished and a circle with a slash for half-diminished) are now supported. A new "Vocal Wizard" displays and transposes to the best song keys for your vocal range.
  • Editing of the Audio Track is now non-destructive, so changes only become permanent if you save the file. The TC-Helicon Audio Harmonies have been enhanced with Vocal Pitch-Styles (automatic "Vibrato" and "Scooping") that can be added to the vocal harmony parts. Multiple sound cards are supported-you can now choose which sound card to use.
  • Full Stereo or Mono support has been added for the Audio Track. There are now on-screen VU meters to monitor the Audio Track.
  • Multiple lines of Lyrics are now supported on the Fake sheet and Printout. Chords and Lyrics can be displayed on separate lines on the Big Lyrics Window.

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
