« Similar but not exactly the same as the 2004 version »Published on 08/27/12 at 22:13
The software does work great in its configuration and hasn’t failed me yet, until I start getting into plug ins and routing other programs though it. Then I can experience some lag and freezing issues. But that only happens when I bring some other programs into Band in a Box.
The thing that I like most about it is the price, it is very affordable and is a great starting point for someone who is just getting started in creating music digitally. If you want something more in depth because you are not a beginner than I say stay away from it and invest a little more money for a better program. I have tried band in a box the 2004 version and it is pretty much the same as the 2011 version to me. They both work great, but have several limitations has to how far you can push them.
