User Showcase Info and FAQ

The User Showcase is an area where users of PG Music products (e.g. Band-in-a-Box or RealBand) can post links to their original song compositions, for others to listen to.

  • The songs must be originals, no copyrighted or "cover" songs. You must have all of the rights to the songs.
  • Start a new thread with each new song post - don't add new songs to an existing thread. The exception to this is if you are posting a lot of songs in a short period of time (compared to others), please post them in a single thread.

With the posts, please provide:

  • Link to the song (it is not hosted on our site, it is hosted on your site).
  • Title and background information about the song.
  • Indicate which tracks were recorded by you, and which tracks were generated by Band-in-a-Box or RealBand.
  • If Band-in-a-Box or RealBand have been used, please provide information as to which styles or RealTracks were used. (tip: In Band-in-a-Box, the Song Memo contains the names of the RealTracks used, and you can copy/paste from that.)
  • List other programs used in the production (Sonar, Cubase etc.)
  • Describe what effects were used in the production (reverb, auto-tune etc).
  • Please limit the threads on this forum to the User Showcase postings. Off-topic threads will be moved to the off-topic forum
