On April 20 we released Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac with over 80 new features, 202 New RealTracks, and more!

To celebrate this release, we are offering special pricing on Upgrade packages (up to 50% off!) until May 31st!

Find the upgrade package for you when you visit www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.packages.htm

Holiday Hours - Monday, May 22nd

We're celebrating Victoria Day on Monday, May 22.

#TBT - Customer Feedback Comic Strip

We love hearing feedback from all our customers - and really appreciate it when they add their own personal touch! Like this comic strip we received in August 2015 from Avalina Kreska with the note "Just my way of saying thanks for producing such awesome software."

Click here to see the comic strip.

Thank you Avalina!

Band-in-a-Box® Version 2017 for Windows Build 464 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows customers can install the latest patch update (Build 464) here: www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#464

Added: The RealTracks Settings dialog now has a choice of low/medium/high for Elastique stretching quality, instead of just high quality on or off (high quality off meant medium).
Fixed: Chord sheet fonts were limited to a maximum size that would not quite fill the cells. This would cause superscript extensions to sit too high above the roots.
Fixed: Elastique stretching items were missing from the RealTracks Settings dialog.
Fixed: If pasting a single line of text into a layer using the layer context menu, nothing would be pasted.
Fixed: If pasting multiple lines of text into a layer, the last line would be skipped.
Fixed: Shift+Arrow keys were not working to highlight regions on the chord sheet.
Fixed: The "Select Hi-Q MIDI Patch Plugin" menu item should be available to the Melody, Soloist, and Thru tracks.
Fixed: The Help button in the MultiDrums dialog did not do anything
Fixed: The media player in the Hi-Q patch dialog did not have a volume control.
Fixed: The number pad keys 0, 1, 2 would trigger looping features are inappropriate times (eg. when in the song memo, or when selecting the chorus ending bar, etc.)
Fixed: The visual metronome would take over the StylePicker window when playing song demo.
Fixed: When running Band-in-a-Box with factory settings the floating mixer would appear in the top left corner of the screen the first time it was opened.
Fixed: When the "auto-resize" is enabled for the floating mixer, stopping playback should only move it back to the maximized position if it was in that position prior to playback.

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac - Toolbar Modes #TipTuesday

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac offers you more control over your toolbars!

With the redesigned GUI in Band-in-a-Box® 2017, there are now 3 modes for the toolbar! To switch between them, use the the Mode Selector buttons (located at the top left of the screen).

The three modes are:
1. Smaller, configurable toolbar with tabbed interface.
There's a [CUSTOM] tab in this mode that lets you select buttons you want to see in the order you want!

2. Taller toolbar with fixed on-screen Mixer, useful for people with hi-res screens.
All your buttons are there!

3. DAW Mode.
This makes a small screen, always on top, useful for drag and drop of files to your favorite DAW.

#TipTuesday Want a faster way to switch between your custom toolbar and the taller toolbar? Just select Cmd-T!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac - Special Audiophile Upgrade Option!

Are you currently using a Band-in-a-Box® 2016 Audiophile Edition hard drive? We have a special upgrade price just for you!

During our Mac special, which ends May 31st, registered users of a Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac Audiophile Edition can purchase the 2017 Audiophile Upgrade for only $199! This limited-time offer is available at www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.packages.audiophile.htm or by calling us directly. www.pgmusic.com/contact.htm.

The Band-in-a-Box® Audiophile Edition ships pre-installed on a high-speed USB 3.0 hard drive. This package is similar to the EverythingPAK, however it includes the uncompressed AIFF files for the RealTracks & RealDrums - perfect if you're looking for the highest level of lossless audio!
Note: Due to the large size of these files, the Audiophile Edition is not available for download.

To review all the different Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac packages, visit www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.packages.htm

Ordering your Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Audiophile Edition for Mac, and you're interested in adding the 49-PAK (which includes 24 Bonus UNRELEASED RealTracks, 18 Instrumental Studies, 30 MIDI SuperTracks, and 59 Re-discovered RealStyles & MIDI SuperTracks)? If you purchase your 49-PAK at the same time as your Audiophile Upgrade purchase, we'll make sure you receive the AIFF files for the 24 additional RealTracks pre-installed to the Audiophile hard drive!


Special Pricing - Celtic Guitar Video Master Class Series with Quinn Bachand Until May 31!

We're offering all three volumes of the Celtic Guitar Video Master Class Series with Quinn Bachand! for the special price of $29 until May 31st! (reg: $49)

Anyone familiar with our RealTracks will recognize the name Quinn Bachand - his RealTracks collection includes the Celtic guitar, Bodhran, Irish Bouzouki, and banjo!

Watch the trailer...

Quinn has not only mastered Celtic guitar (he did so at a very young age), he is also an expert on jazz and gypsy guitar! Quinn is a great teacher, and knows all the theory and terminology to describe what he is teaching. These videos included in the Celtic Guitar Video Master Class Series are highly recommended. There are 3 volumes, each one hour long ($19 per volume). Quinn cover techniques, chord theory, voicings and walks you through 17 "must-know" tunes. This is for the intermediate-advanced guitarist, and covers Celtic guitar styles (some folk and old-time covered as well).
