Auto accompaniment software for musicians, songwriters, and educators

Perfect for musicians, songwriters, and educators – award-winning Band-in-a-Box is the world’s premiere auto accompaniment and style-based music creation software. Use it to easily create backing tracks for songs, jam tracks for practicing solos and improvisation, or as a powerful songwriting tool. Just type in some chords (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose a style, and Band-in-a-Boxautomatically creates professional-quality backing tracks with keyboards, bass, drums, guitar, strings, and other instruments. Band-in-a-Box supports a wide variety of popular styles including Rock, Pop, Country, Folk, Celtic, Blues, Jazz, Latin, and Bluegrass styles. You can also create jam tracks using your own Hybrid Styles.

Your backing tracks will sound even better with RealDrums and RealTracks. These sound best because they are actual recordings of the performances by top studio musicians. RealTracks are available in a wide range of musical styles, keys, and tempos. RealStyle automatically selects RealTracks for you when generating an arrangement. RealCharts even lets you view the music notation and guitar tab/fretboard display.

For added versatility, you can import your own or 3rd party loops or your favorite MIDITrack in any style to any track in your arrangement. Use the built-in mixer to control volume, panning, tone, and reverb for each instrument in your ultra-realistic Band-in-a-Box arrangement. The “Combo” slider lets you make changes to all tracks at once.

Already have a song recording? A unique Audio Chord Wizard can detect the chords in any AIFF, MP4, M4A, or other audio files and display them inside Band-in-a-Box, and an Audio Wizard can determine the tempo, bar lines, and song’s key.
