What are RealTracks? RealTracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). They follow the chord progression that you have entered, so you hear an authentic audio accompaniment or solo. RealTracks are not "samples"... They are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing in perfect sync with the other tracks.RealDrums in the Audiophile: Over 250 RealDrums main drum styles plus hundreds of variations of each.
What are RealDrums? They are not "samples" of single drum hits, but are full recordings lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing along in perfect sync with the other tracks. As well as incredible drum sounds, you hear the exact rhythms and variations played by the drummer.
