PG Music Inc. is proud to announce version 2013 of its award-winning Band-in-a-Box intelligent music accompaniment software for Mac with over 50 new features plus 101 more studio-quality RealTracks and 50 more MIDI SuperTracks by top session pros.
In announcing the release of Band-in-a-Box 2013 for Macintosh, program author and creator Peter Gannon said, “These are exciting times for the Band-in-a-Box Mac platform. In addition to a complete update of the Notation features and the addition of MIDI SuperTracks, version 2013 adds over 50 new features and enhancements plus 101 new RealTracks and 6 new sets of MIDI SuperTracks. It’s a major upgrade.”
As well as more than 100 updated Notation features since version 2012, Band-in-a-Box 2013 for Mac adds another 50-plus new features, including Artist Performance Tracks that showcase Band-in-a-Box RealTracks demos as they accompany a live recording artist playing the melody. There’s a new R&B Horn Section RealTracks style that pairs well with Jazz Funk, Soul, Blues Rock, and even Country rhythm sections, and many RealTracks have been updated and enhanced. The “Pick best” RealTracks feature finds the best soloing or chording match for any song. Both RealTracks and RealDrums now show lists of recently used favorites. A new Song Form feature allows sections of a song (A, B, C, etc.) to be defined, and then rearranged by simply typing the form you want (e.g. AABABAACA).
Handy buttons have been added to the toolbars for Non-Concert Transpose, Song Form, Bar Settings, and Woodshed Tempo. The Save Track as Performance feature saves a track as audio, ready to upload with the built-in SoundCloud.com and DropBox integration. The free SampleTank 2 softsynth is included, complete with a special Band-in-a-Box preset of high quality PG Music sounds. And much more.
