Band-in-a-Box is a MIDI music arranger software package for Windows and Mac OS produced by PG Music Incorporated. It was first introduced in 1990 for the Atari ST. Since then PG MUSIC has been a recipient of numerous awards.

Band-in-a-Box can create a background for almost any chord progression used in Western popular music. It can then play that song back using the user's choice of one of thousands of different background styles. In addition to playing back the users' songs with built in, additional, or aftermarket styles, users can play the songs back and vary the key and/or the song's speed independently or even change the number of times any section of the song repeats.

Users can also export it as either a MIDI or Audio file. Exporting to a MIDI file allows the user to edit the background generated by Band-in-a-Box in a MIDI sequencer.

Audio samples

The following solos were created by Band-in-a-Box without any user interaction (except picking the style from the list).
