Put A Better Band In Your Box With
Norton Music's User Style Disk #2
For Band-in-a-Box

Norton Music's User Style Disk #2 is the improved, five instrument upgrade to the original Band-in-a-Box Turbosupercharger (User Style Disk Number 1). It is so good it has even been recommended by PG Music.

If you have Band-in-a-Box and you like music, you need this disk!!!

Norton Music Style Disks have been recommended in Keyboard Magazine, Electronic Musician Magazine, The Micro Computer Journal, Music & Computers Magazine, Jazz Times Magazine, on the internet , the McGraw-Hill textbook, Multimedia Literacy by Dr. Fred T. Hoffstetter, and by word of mouth in over 75 different countries by musicians like you.

The best way to describe what is on this disk is to list the styles and post the demo songs. So here we go: Click the Demo link to listen to the MP3 demo.
Note: The audio MP3 files were recorded using Band-in-a-Box and the Edirol VSC3 Virtual Sound Canvas synthesizer. They were encoded at a low bit-rate and in mono so they will download fast, even for those with a dial-up connection. The low bit-rate results in low fidelity, but you will still be able to hear all the parts, and you won't have to wait long for the music to start. In most cases the demo plays only a few bars of the A section, a few bars of the B section, and the ending. In other words, what you hear is only a fraction of what you get.

    Suggested musical applications for each style are written in RED:
