The previous editions of styles from the Korg PA80 arranger got rave reviews and many requests for more. So you asked for it -- and here is the next installment.

Ever since I released disks #4 and #5 for Band-in-a-Box, (styles inspired by the Korg i3 keyboard), people have been asking me to write more styles inspired by those great auto-arrangement keyboards. By far the keyboard requested most often has been the Korg PA80. This disk is not a direct copy of the styles on the PA80. That would be impossible as there are some significant differences between Band-in-a-Box and the Korg. The Korg has up to 7 instruments per style and a different set of percussion instruments. On the other hand, because they "think" about music differently, Band-in-a-Box has many ways to improve the musicality of the styles: (1) My BiaB rhythm patterns are less repetitive than those of the Korg (2) The Korg has only two drum rolls per style, I usually use 5 or more (3) My BiaB styles provides more authentic guitar chord inversions than the Korg (4) BiaB supports many more chord variations (5) Since the cords are entered before the song plays, BiaB knows what chord is coming next and can choose an appropriately musical pattern for that chord. I think the results more than compensate for the differences between the Korg and BiaB.

Buy this disk and get a FREE intro/ending disk. 100 fantastic MIDI file intros and endings. You can use them in "Real Band" or export your BiaB file as a MIDI file, import it into a sequencer, and add these fantastic intros and endings. Whether you use it on BiaB files or your own MIDI sequences or not, you get the Intro/Ending disk FREE.

** PLUS, the 32 new styles come in Mix&Match Mega-Style pairs. Sometimes the variations are subtle, sometimes pronounced, and always at least 4 different sub-styles are compatible, so you can have an A, B, C and D section in any song you like! This was a Norton Music innovation many years before PG Music incorporated it into Band-in-a-Box.

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 100 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:
Note: The audio MP3 files were recorded using Band-in-a-Box and the Edirol VSC3 Virtual Sound Canvas synthesizer with CDex "ripping" software. They were encoded at a low bit-rate in mono so although the audio fidelity will be low, you will be able to hear all the parts. The low bit-rate results in a small file size for quick downloading and playing, even for those on a dial-up connection.

"For years I heard about your disks but didn't buy them because they weren't PG Music's. Boy was I mistaken! I just bought two and they are great - far superior to PG's styles! I'll be here next payday for the rest of them." - MusicProf@...


"I just bought disks 18 through 21 and they would be worth it even without the free bonus disk. The styles are fantastic and the intros and endings are the icing on the cake. Keep up the good work and I'll be back for more" - Philll@...


"As I am typing this note, I am listening to a BIAB melody which came from a relatively random assignment of chords and one of your styles. It doesn't feel like midi at all, but rather as if I had tapped into some internet radio station broadcasting a live concert of real musicians." ~ Henry Lefkowitz - Columbia MD
