Yeah. How easy is Band in a box to set up and use?

I have looked at it a few times and thought it may be too much faff

I don't think it's that hard but it does take time, time I have felt I could spend on other plaing/transcribing.

However, I am playing a chord progression that goes: D7 D7 G7 D7, G7 D7 G7 G7, E-7 A7 D7 A7 and I really need a backing track so BIAB is what I need to use. :(

The problem for me is that I use it so little so it always seems 'slow' and 'cumbersome'. I have the feeling that if I got to grips with it more I'd find it less of a chore! Chicken and egg :w00t:

It is what is available for use with BiaB that is attractive. The additional Real Discs sound around five hundred percent better than the penny plain, in reality the £100 2009.5 for Mac that I have. My problem is finding where to obtain the Real Discs.

Used with GarageBand or some other DAW and decent samples, interesting and varied backing tracks are possible but it depends on whether you want to use other people's work, in which case download and pay for them or do it yourself. Sadly I fool myself that one day I'll produce something decent. :(
 
Band in a Box does have some tunes floating about in the file sharing bit of the interweb. If you have real books tho it is really easy to input the chords. Just type them and move 1/2 a bar at a time. The hard part is finding the style you want to play it in, in the end it is best with a band but you can get close enough to try.

If you have BiaB and are desperate for a particular tune I may be able to find it -I have a fair few, just pm me.
 
Cheers Saxnic Excellent find - its a bit slower than Spotify but does the job if you pause till the tunes all ready.
I think they need a few more servers.
Thanks so much. Link forwarded to many mates.
