Band in a Box
Does anyone on The Session use Band in a Box?
This software from PG Music allows you to create or play from previously created files a backing track to your fiddle/flute/accordian etc solo.
The question has arisen from discussions on both FiddleHangout.com and the Band in a Box Forum about Irish reel/jig/hornpipe “styles”. It is suggested that BIAB does not adequately cover this genre of music.
There are certainly a number of mp3 backing tracks available (notably from Alf Warnock), but BIAB RealTracks (where actual and individual instruments combine as per a session) to provide a backing track to your melody seem to be in short supply.
I wonder has anyone any information on this topic?
