I'm new here and this is my first post on any forum. I have never heard of BIAB (is it Band in a Box?) I use midi to compose with but it sounds like "midi". Does BIAB sound better? Is it something like Pro Tools or is it used differently? I do "play" all the sounds on my midi keyboard, strings, piano, organ maybe a pad or 2 and use EZ drummer for the beat, record it all on the DAW with vocals. The quality of sound misses the mark and doesn't sound professional.

I have taken a few of my songs and had "real" instruments put to them but in my opinion and the opinion of a few other people the songs are still lacking something. It costs loads to go into the studio and just do a few songs, and then you realize you cannot pitch the songs because they still sound like a demo.
