The PG Music Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK is a snap 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 incredible software does the rest. Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK automatically generates a complete professional quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar and strings in a wide variety of popular styles (jazz, pop, country, classical, and more). It's now easier than ever to get amazing, realistic-sounding arrangements straight from your PC with the PG Music Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK.
On top of RealDrums, you get three additional "Real" instruments, including Real Pedal Steel, Real Acoustic Guitar, and Tenor Sax soloing (RealSax). These tracks replace the MIDI track for that instrument, and can be 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. 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 tracks. RealTracks can be built in to the style, and would replace either the bass, guitar, piano, or strings part, or they can be generated to the Soloist (or Melody) track using the Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK Soloist feature.
Get chords from audio files
The amazing "Chords from MP3" feature (Audio Chord Wizard) automatically figures out the chords from any MP3, WAV or WMA audio file, and displays them in Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK. Just load in any MP3 file and you'll instantly see the chords. The Audio Wizard also figures out tempo, bar lines, key and fine-tuning from the MP3, WAV or WMA audio file.
MultiStyles are also inside Band-in-a-Box MegaPAK. These are Styles that can have anywhere from 4 to 24 substyles! Previous Band-in-a-Box Styles were limited to 2 substyles ("a" and "b"). Now, for example, a MultiStyle with 4 substyles (First Verse, Verse, Chorus, Break) can be used, and you select the various sections using "a"/"b"/"c"/"d" part markers. Some of our newest Styles Sets are MultiStyles, typically with 4 substyles, but some Techno Styles have 24 substyles. You can easily make your own MultiStyles, either from scratch, or combining parts from existing Styles to make a MultiStyle. For example, if you have 10 favorite Country Styles, you can quickly make a single MultiStyle that has 20 substyles available within the same song.
The MegaPAK version of Band-in-a-Box includes RealBand, all of the Style Sets 0-77, regular Soloist Sets 1-11 and 16-20, Melodist Sets 1-8, RealTracks Sets 1-6, and RealDrums Sets 1-6. With RealBand, BIAB has combined the legendary power of Band-in-a-Box and PowerTracks Pro Audio DAW, plus PG Music's revolutionary RealTracks so you can create your own arrangements to accompany your song, in the style of your choice! The MegaPAK is a great place to start if you're looking to branch into many different genres of music but aren't concerned about having RealDrums for every song or additional tutorial programs.
