is it possible to add a software synth or something so that band in a box sounds more lifelike?

Sadly enough, I think I'm the only person here who doesn't own it (I should).

If I understand enough correctly you're thinking something like VSTi soft synths..right? I don't believe it supports soft synths as plugins but you can either trigger external gear via midi or get something like the E-mu Proteus X2 (qawd I love the pianos) that is a soft snyth but also operates stand alone. So you can send the midi out signal right to the stand alone version and trigger way more tracks than BIAB can send to. It's a system pig though.

EDIT: I'm mistaken, see FAQ link. Wink

please take a look, what you need is a high quality gm1 sound module.
there's a new release from native instruments called bandstand which is just that. 5 gigabytes of the highest quality sounds, and they replace the crappy onboard gm1 sounds of biab Smile

Be very VERY careful in recommending soft synths for BiaB! That was my biggest let down! It doesn't work with my Emu Proteus X2 and suspect it doesn't work with other true VSTi instruments. Confused Ohhh...and need I mention that the people at pgmusic could totally care less? Rolling Eyes

Right!

You have to export the midifiles from BIAB and import them to a sequencer to be able to use a soft synth, for example Steinbergs Hypersonic or IK Multimedia Sampletank.
