    Does ToonTrack itself quickly creates ready to hear sound tracks given a chord chart, and then each can be adjusted on selected bars ?
    Toontrack is highly similar to BIAB that their features are almost like twins. I said Toontrack is better because it expands to styles and genres that BIAB might be hokey with. For example, Toontrack gives you the platform to create instant prog-metal and BIAB does not quite really. BIAB is good with jazz, blues, and maybe country, but hokey with more mainstream and contemporary styles that the younger demographic listens to. But what I said was highly opinionated and based on my personal observation.

    Thanks for the clarification. Yes BIAB is good with standard jazz & blues, less with funk, latin, latin funk. except bossa nova. Much less styles to play with. Have to combine instrument styles yourself, specially for soloing. Never considered other different styles like metal or very contemporary music as you said.

    A big weakness of BIAB, maybe Toontrack: its inability to handle unusual time signatures, apart from 4/4 and 3/4 (already with limitations). A friend of mine wrote a 4/4 funk tune ending with a 3/8 turnaround which is key to that tune !! no way to have it using BIAB. I had to manually create a score for a playalong and create an audio file using the Dorico notation software. Never thought of trying to have Take Five in BIAB, just out of curiosity. Worth to explore !
