The award-winning Band-in-a-Box® is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program for Windows or Mac. Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you’d like, and 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 plus optional live audio tracks with RealDrums and RealTracks - audio instruments that replace the MIDI track with actual recordings of top studio musicians.
