Ask Mac or Johnny or mark or sub if they think band in a box is a tool to record professional track with.

A 39 dollar Casio with built in drum machine was a tool too, I don't think they made too many hit records using one


Iíve been in the studio with two of the people you have mentioned so Iíll chime in.

ďIs band in a box is a tool to record professional track with?Ē Professional/radio ready No!, Demo yes. BIAB helps those who donít have the money, talent or resources sound much better. Like any other computer program garbage in gives you garbage out or elevator music as you call it. BIAB in the hands of a skilled musician will give you results that are fantastic. Mix in some well played live instruments and it becomes pretty gosh darn good.

Oh and it wasnít a 39 dollar Casio, but Gary Wright made an entire album using a keyboard. Same principal.
