Join Julio Appling for an in-depth discussion in this video Drums and tracks, part of Real Books and Digital Accompaniment Tools for Musicians.
- [Instructor] RealTracks refer to tracks generated…by Band-in-a-Box from audio recordings…of professional musicians playing real instruments.…These are then adapted to tracks, styles, and solos,…giving them a more realistic sound.…Pop, jazz, and country RealTracks come bundled…with Band-in-a-Box Pro,…though additional RealTrack packages…can be purchased separately as add-ons.…Various Band-in-a-Box styles use RealTracks…as part of their instrumentation.…Some use only RealTracks.…Some use part RealTracks and part MIDI,…while others are entirely MIDI.…
For my sample track here,…I'm intentionally using all MIDI tracks.…Let's hear how that sounds.…(jazzy swing music)…Not bad, but it certainly sounds…like computer-generated instruments.…Let's go ahead and inject some life into it…with some RealTracks.…I'll start with drums.…I'll select the Tracks tab and click RealDrums.…The dialog indicates that RealDrums has been disabled,…which I'd done earlier for demo purposes.…
I'll go ahead and re-enable them now.…Now I see my full list of RealDrum options.…
