In announcing the release of Band-in-a-Box 2008.5, program author and creator Peter Gannon said, “We are very excited about the new level of realism that can be achieved with Band-in-a-Box 2008.5 and the 44 new Real Instruments. Now you can generate RealStyles - accompaniments that use no MIDI at all, as they are all made from RealTracks – audio recordings of musicians that play to your chord progressions.”
With Band-in-a-Box 2008 (Nov. 2007) we released 3 RealTracks: Real Pedal Steel, Real Sax (Tenor), and Real Acoustic Guitar. Now there are 44 more RealTracks for Country, Jazz, Rock and Metal. The new Real Instruments include acoustic guitar, electric guitar, basses (Jazz swing acoustic, electric), saxes, fiddle, pedal steel etc. These cover all the instruments for a typical band. Best of all, with the RealStyles that contain Real Instruments ONLY, you do not need to have any MIDI at all! All the RealTracks and RealDrums are actual audio recordings of Jazz, Country, Rock and Metal studio musicians that replace the MIDI track. These audio recordings of studio musicians play along to the chord progressions you enter, not MIDI patterns or samples. Thirty other significant enhancements in version 2008.5 include faster generation of RealTracks and RealDrums, much smaller hard drive space requirements, and more!
