I want to be able to play along with backing tracks for a wide range of songs and tempos. The tracks don't have to be complex: just a rhythm guitar would be fine, though it would be nice to get something with a pompe feel. The impression I get from this board is that Band in a Box is the best way to go. Can someone give me specifics of what I should buy?
I have a Mac mini running OS X. According to the website (http://www.pgmusic.com/band.htm
) there are three different versions: Pro $129, MegaPAK $269, UltraPAK $499. Can I get by with just the $129 version? Are there other gypsy jazz specific things I should buy or download? (I remember seeing other posts on this site that link to band in a box format files for specific songs.)
Do people have general impressions of Band in a Box or other software? Is is a good practice tool?
