With the new Intelligent Style Suggestion feature you can type the name of a familiar song title into the StylePicker, and Band-in-a-Box lists styles with a genre, feel, and tempo that are similar to that song. The Chord Sheet is completely redesigned with a new look, feel, and customization. You can now Load and Save MusicXML files, RealTracks sound better with new algorithms to reduce transpositions, and improve playing over slash chords (C/E), there's a Download Manager accessible from inside the program to automate the download of Band-in-a-Box add-ons in the background, and more!
