Heathen! Infidel! Apple consumer!

Why haven't you tried it? Because it's meant for live performance/practice, it's designed for maximum "instant gratification". There's no setup or learning curve required. Just unzip and run the BackupBand binary. Double-Click one of the style buttons ("Heavy Metal", "Disco", "Reggae",etc), then click a key on the graphical (onscreen) piano. Your 3 piece backup band (drums, bass, rhythm guitar) starts jamming. You'll want to grab an instrument and play along. It has an addictive "fun factor".

Here's a testimonial from an actual enduser:

BackupBand is a lot of fun. It's surprising how much the robot musicians sound like a real, live band. I've wasted hours, days, and weeks of my life just jamming along to the 63 included styles, and haven't yet created my own. It's so addictive I don't have the time nor inclination to do anything else, such as sleep, eat, or bathe. In fact, my wife left me last month, and I never even noticed! The only friends I have left are BackupBand's robots.

Hey, cut that out. It's my job to make sarcastic wisecracks around here. (Do you even have a union card?) I was duly elected to fill this role (with assistance from my "campaign manager", Vladimir Putin).
