Band In A Box 2011.5 Update Build 35
MacOSX | 22.6 MB
Band-in-a-Box 2011.5 for Macintosh is here, adding 20 new features to the 50 new features that were included in Band-in-a-Box 2011! We've made enhancements to the RealTracks including support for Pedal Bass, a "Same-but-different RealTracks" feature which ensures that multiple versions of the same RealTrack always play different riffs, smoother playing in waltzes, better pushes and more simple variations.
Band-in-a-Box is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program for your multimedia computer. You can hear and play along to many song ideas and go from "nothing" to "something" in a very short period of time with Band-in-a-Box as your "on demand" backup band.
•Added: "Same-But-Different" Ensures that, if you have 2 (or more) of the same RealTracks on different tracks, that they will never play the same thing at the same time. If they did it would cancel each other out, and it would sound like one person. "It just works"... there are no settings to change; it just makes the tracks different.
•Added: "Pedal Bass" supported for RealTracks.
•Added: "Bigger Soloists" are supported. Some of our soloists have more riffs than previous RealTracks, so they sound better. These soloists require Band-in-a-Box 2011.5 to work.
•Added: Better pushes in RealTracks, especially over songs with chord changes every 2 beats. These are the natural pushes that occur automatically (not the ones you get by putting ^ carets before chord names), and they will sound more natural.
•Added: Waltzes are improved with RealTracks, better playing when there are 2 chords per bar, and with better endings.
•Added: Better endings when there are time signature changes in the song.
•Added: Drum count-in for RealStyles that use the drum track for a RealTracks instrument (such as Bluegrass).
•Added: StylePicker filter added. Display styles if RealTracks are not present. You may want to not display styles if the RealTracks for the styles are not present on your system. This filter allows you to hide or show these styles.
•Added: RealDrums can now be chosen from the RealTracks Picker. Pressing the [RD] (RealDrums) button on the RealTracks Picker (Assign RealTracks to Tracks dialog) allows you to select a RealDrums, rather than needing to a separate dialog for that.
•Improved: Selecting a new style won't necessarily wipe out song based RealTracks/Drums selections. If you hold down the Shift key when loading a style (from any style selection dialog), then the currently selected RealTracks and RealDrums won't get wiped out. If you load a new style (without holding Shift as above), this wipes out any song-selected RealTracks and RealDrums (unless Shift is held). Now, after loading the style, you can choose Undo, and the previous RealTracks and RealDrums come back. In the StylePicker, if you choose override drums while in the StylePicker, this won't wipe out the RealDrums when you load the style.
