The Band-in-a-Box Pro Fretlight Ready software for Windows is here! Band-in-a-Box Pro Fretlight Ready software for Windows is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program that is a powerful and creative music composition tool for exploring and developing musical ideas. 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. Band-in-a-Box automatically generates a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns. Plus, add REAL accompaniment to your song with RealTracks. These are recordings of top studio musicians that replace the MIDI track with audio instruments. They sound like real musicians, because they ARE real musicians! With the Fretlight Mode activated you can light up the built-in or you custom created music composition's chord progression, solos or accompaniments.
