If you're serious about songwriting, then you can't limit yourself to just a handful of styles. PG Music's Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK gives you all the tools you need to cover every major music style out there. Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK starts with PG Music's wildly successful Band-in-a-Box songwriting software and adds an impressive collection of content to your library - so much, in fact, that Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK ships to you on its own 160GB USB hard drive. This content includes almost every RealTracks Set, RealDrums Set, Style Set, Soloist Set, and Melodist Set, as well as several others, giving you the ability to easily lay out songs in styles ranging from pop to polka, country to metal, and more!
Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK features RealDrums. These are audio drum styles that replace the MIDI Drum track with actual recordings of top studio Jazz/Rock/Country drummers. These are not "samples" of single drum hits; they are full recordings, lasting from 1 to 8 bars, playing along in perfect sync with the other Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK tracks. The results are dramatically better than MIDI; they sound like a real drummer because they are recordings of a real drummer. And adding a real instrument to the mix makes all of the Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK parts sound more authentic.
Along with RealDrums, there are 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 up to 8 bars, 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 Soloist feature.
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 UltraPlusPAK. 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.
Inside Band-in-a-Box UltraPlusPAK, there are styles that can have four-plus substyles. While previous versions were limited to two substyles, now there are MultiStyles which allow you to choose more. For example you can have a MultiStyle with four substyles such as First Verse, Verse, Chorus, and Break, usually designated using "a"/"b"/"c"/"d" part markers. Most MultiStyles typically have four substyles, but some Techno Styles have up to 24 substyles. You can also create your own MutliStyles from scratch or by combining existing Styles.
