Every jazz musician knows that you can't get good unless you play with good musicians, but you usually can't play with good musicians until you're good. With MiBAC JAZZ you can break this musical catch-22 and play along withing a swingin' jazz combo on any tune you like, any time you feel like it.


"What's great about MiBAC's rhythm section is how much it sounds like the real thing." 
Macworld Magazine 

"the comping is excellent...The ability to mix and match styles so flexibly, coupled with the variations included, gives you a hefty measure of musical expressiveness." 
Electronic Musician Magazine 

"The program produces very authentic sequences, and does so much more quickly than one could enter the parts with a MIDI keyboard and sequencer."
Downbeat Magazine

"excellent musical feel, printing and chord options, this is a wonderful tool for developing jazz improvisational skills. Nice work."
American Music Teacher Magazine 


"MiBAC Jazz represents a breakthrough in jazz sure to have an impact on this and future generations of musicians."

"My saxophone never sounded better, with the new backup band. I just wanted to let you know I'm thrilled to have this great asset in my music arsenal... Kudos, and keep up the good work!"

"I earn my living singing and playing and your program is the BEST practice and performance aid to come down the pike." 
Andre B.

IT'S AS EASY AS 1-2-3!

1. Type in the chords. MiBAC JAZZ is so easy to use, you'll feel at home with it right away. And its screen appearance is so like a lead sheet, you'll hardly notice the difference.

2. Click the "Write" tool. It's fast! You can write a 12 bar blues with 40 choruses in seconds. Each chorus will have different drum patterns, bass lines, piano comping rhythms, and piano voicings. 

3. Click the "Play" tool and play along. The music you hear sounds incredibly live and natural, because all of the rhythms were played in by real musicians, not generated by mathematical formulas.

12 Jazz Styles: 4/4 and 3/4 ballad, swing, and fast bebop; rock shuffle, bossa nova, samba, slow 12/8, two beat, and a four chord per measure ballad swing. Mix the styles of each instrument anywhere in the song. 

Export Standard MIDI Files and open your song in a sequencer to record additional tracks, or in a notation program to print out the parts. 

Print lead sheets in written or transposed keys.
