OVERVIEW

A simple-to-use music software solution to help inspire and enliven compositions.

The 5-User Lab Pack of Band-in-a-Box Pro 2010 for Mac is the "tried and true" version of Band-in-a-Box for the classroom setting, giving you 5 user licenses to work with. PG Music's Band-in-a-Box Pro 2010 includes Band-in-a-Box 2010, Pro RealCombos: 12 RealTracks in 3 Bands (Jazz Swing 140, Pop/Rock 120, and Country Ballad 85) and RealDrums Set 1, plus Styles Sets 0-3, Soloist Set 1, and Melodist Set 1. If you are looking for the basic music software package, without a lot of extra add-ons to inspire your students, this is a wise purchase.

PG Music Band-in-a-Box Pro 2010 for MacIntosh is so easy to use. Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you'd like, and this music software does the rest, automatically generating a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns in a wide variety of popular styles. Live audio tracks can be created using the included RealDrums and RealTracks, now combined into one called RealCombos.

This is a powerful and creative music composition tool for exploring and developing musical ideas with near-instantaneous feedback. Version 2010 is designed for MacIntel, and boasts major features like RealDrums, RealTracks and the Audio Chord Wizard. RealDrums adds the human element of a live drummer while RealTracks add even more live session musicians, bringing the entire PG Music Band-in-a-Box arrangement to life. The Audio Chord Wizard has the amazing ability to analyze, extract, and show the chords from audio recordings onscreen and then write them to the Band-in-a-Box chord sheet.

What are RealCombos?
RealCombos are a band of RealTracks and RealDrums in the same style. For example, the Jazz Swing 140 RealCombo includes 5 RealInstruments (Bass, Piano, Guitar, Sax, and Drums) that play at a medium swing tempo. RealCombos have an ideal tempo listed—they can be played at any tempo, but sound best near the ideal (originally recorded) tempo. The PG Music Band-in-Box 2010 Pro for Mac RealTracks Collection includes 12 RealTracks, in 3 Bands: Jazz, Pop/Rock, Country

PG Music Styles Sets 0-3
The Band-in-a-Box Pro 2010 for Mac includes the starter set of PG Music's Sets 0-3. The Style Sets included contain starter sets that range from a mellow bossa nova quartet to a 60's British rock ballad, a BeeGee's inspired disco track to a modern Christina Aguilera-like pop progressions. There's also funk, country swing, blues, new wave, alternative rock, jazz, hip-hop, waltz, heavy metal, and more. It's a diverse mix to get you inspired.

PG Music Soloist Sets
Soloist add-ons work with Band-in-a-Box's Soloist feature, which generates solos to go with your song. The more Soloist add-ons you have, the greater the variety of solos Band-in-a-Box will be able to generate. This Mac version comes with Soloist 1 to give you an idea of what the Soloistt feature can do for you.

PG Music Melodist Sets
Melodist add-ons work with Band-in-a-Box's Melodist feature. The Melodist can compose a song, complete with intro, chords, melody, arrangement and improvisation, with the push of a button. The more add-ons you have, the wider the variety of songs the Melodist will be able to generate. This Mac version comes with Melodist 1 to give you an idea of what it can do for you.
