PG Music Band-in-a-Box 2009
Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you'd like, and PG Music Band-in-a-Box 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 software's RealDrums and RealTracks.
Band-in-a-Box is powerful and creative music composition software for exploring and developing musical ideas with near-instantaneous feedback. Over the years PG Music has added many features to Band-in-a-Box: Notation and Lyrics, Piano Roll, 16-channel MIDI Multitracks, Harmonization, the StyleMaker and StylePicker, a live performance Conductor window, Medley Maker, and 24 substyle Multistyles. Soloist and Melodist are popular, intelligent features that generate professional solos or even create whole new songs from scratch. RealDrums adds the human element of a live drummer while RealTracks adds even more live session musicians, bringing the entire 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.
The inclusion of digital audio features makes Band-in-a-Box the perfect software for creating, playing, and recording your music with MIDI, vocals, and acoustic instruments. Band-in-a-Box for Windows also records an acoustic instrument or voice to add to the composition with processing through its own DirectX audio effects. Its built-in TC Helicon audio harmonies turns your audio track into multiple harmony parts or adjusts its pitch. The vibrato and scooping effects generate realistic vocal styles and up to 16 choral parts.
Print out your finished creation with lyrics, chords, repeats and endings, DC markings and codas, or save it as a graphics file for web publication or to e-mail to a friend. And when you're ready to let others hear your compositions, just burn them directly to an audio CD. Or, save your composition as a Windows Media File (or in any other compressed formats you have) for a file that's Internet-ready. You'll have even more fun making automatic medleys, playing your favorite song lists in the Band-in-a-Box Jukebox, and singing along to your karaoke files with CDG graphics.

PG Music Real Styles 0-77
The EverythingPAK 2009 includes all 77 of PG Music's Style Sets. This wide ranging group of ready-to-accompany style sets were inspired by authentic performances and fashioned after the sounds of famous musicians in all genres. It covers the gamut—Britpop to British Invasion, classic to contemporary country, salsa to world fretboards, mellow New Age to hardcore techno, gospel to blues.
PG Music RealTracks
RealTracks replaces MIDI instrument tracks with virtual tracks for that instrument that are controlled just like the MIDI instrument (volume changes, muting etc.). Best of all, they follow the chord progression that you have entered, so that you hear an authentic audio accompaniment to your song. For example, with a simple right-click, you can turn your MIDI guitar into a beautiful finger picking guitar part, and turn those MIDI strings into a real violinist playing a real violin. These are not samples, but are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars at a time, playing along in perfect sync with the other Band-in-a-Box and RealBand tracks. RealTracks can be assigned to play on any Band-in-a-Box track (guitar, bass, etc.), and in Band-in-a-Box you can select up to seven different RealTracks for one song; RealBand can have up to 48 different RealTracks. RealTracks can also be built in to the style, replacing the MIDI bass, guitar, piano, or strings part in that style. In addition, you can use PG Music Soloist to generate RealTracks.
Adding a real instrument to the mix makes all of the Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, and PowerTracks MIDI parts sound more authentic. Add up to 7 instruments and the results are phenomenal. RealTracks adds an exciting human element to your Band-in-a-Box, RealBand and PowerTracks Pro Audio arrangements, but that's just the beginning. Use RealTracks for all kinds of recordings. Record the live audio output of RealTracks through a mixer, or export RealTracks tracks as WAV files for use with most popular audio programs. You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your recording projects, and you can.
The PG Music EverythingPAK includes all 39 RealTracks Sets available, which includes Country Ballads, Jazz Waltz, Blues, Slow Swing, Pop Swing 8ths Bass 1, All Metal!, and 34 more.
PG Music RealDrums
RealDrums are audio drum styles that replace the MIDI Drum track with actual recordings of top studio Jazz/Rock/Country drummers. These are not samples of single drum hits. They are actually full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars, playing along in perfect sync with the other Band-in-a-Box tracks. For example, choose a brushes style, and you will now hear lush jazz brushes, exactly as you'd hear if the drummer was in the room with you. The results are dramatically better than MIDI. They sound like a real drummer, because they are actual recordings of a real drummer. Adding this digitized real instrument to the mix makes all of your Band-in-a-Box parts sound more authentic. As well as improved drum sounds, you are hearing the exact rhythms played by the drummer, including features not seen in MIDI (subtle drum rolls, variations in ride cymbal taps, complex fills, etc.). A RealDrums dialog allows you to set whether you want to hear RealDrums with all styles, no styles, or somewhere in between.
The PG Music EverythingPAK contains all 20 RealDrums Sets available. This includes Waltzes, Country and More!, Lite Pop, Salsa Moderna, Techno 1: Progressive, Terry Clarke - Classic Jazz, and 15 more. Enough drum stylings to cover whatever genre you like to work in.
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.
PG Music EverythingPAK includes Soloist Sets 1-13 & 16-20. Set titles include Jazz Swing Soloing, Killer Pop and Older Jazz, Ballads and Guitar, Saxophone, Soundtrack Soloists, Trumpet, Bluegrass Soloing, and more.

PG Music EverythingPAK includes all 8 Melodist Sets, including, Joplin, Tin Pan and Children's, Brazilian Even 8ths Jazz, MOR Pop/Rock and Soundtracks, Buegrass 3/4 and Irish 12/8, Jazz, Bluegrass, and more.
