Intelligent Style Suggestion: Type the name of a familiar song title in StylePicker and Band-in-a-Box will list styles whose genre, feel and tempo are similar to that song! Load & Save MusicXML support. Guitar capo support added to on-screen guitar display and notation. You can now hear Band-in-a-Box singing, with built-in support for the popular online vocal synth “Sinsy.” Export Lists of Styles, RealTracks or RealDrums. Staccato melody function added. RealTracks pushes now happen a little later, sounding more musical, and the timing is tempo dependent, and much more!
