Hi, We've added a list of all songs posted to the user showcase, and it can be accessed from this page

http://www.pgmusic.com/user-showcase/?genre=jazz

It is also accessible from the Main forum page, below the user showcase.

It lists forum member name, genre, and a link to the forum post, where the user can get the link and discussion.

Note: If anyone doesn't want their songs listed on this page (or listed in the forum in general), please let us know and we'll remove them.

That's a super job, guys/gals. What an incredible number of songs!

Boy!Curiosity is sure going to keep me busy for awhile.

Thanks for doing that for everyone.

Cheers - Ian

Awesome job on this! I didn't make the list (boo hoo), but congratulations to every one that did. There is sure a lot of good material here!

Brilliant idea, now I can REALLY waste time, in a good way, by listening to them all in one convenient place!
Thanks, and I agree with Ian Fraser "What an incredible number of songs!"

Did you have a song posted RodM? Is the link still working? It doesn't appear they picked and chose through them from Peters description. Did you use any PGMusic Products on the song and describe how?
Otherwise you should have been in the list I would assume. Oversight? Possible.

Hi Bob,

I'm sorry I sounded "hurt" on earlier post. I now realize they went through the older posts, not the brand new user forum songs. After listening to all the incredible talent on the listed genres, I certainly wouldn't blame BIAB for showcasing the best songs. The trouble with that is, they all sound great to me. How would you choose?
I had a bunch of older songs using BIAB, but I quickly took them down because I didn't think my songs were good enough to post so BIAB would have seen a broken link on those songs. I have some new Christmas songs using BIAB Midi and real tracks "A BIAB Christmas".
Any way I agree with Ian too. There is an incredible amount of talent using an phenomenal product (BIAB). I know I am grateful to have such a good product. For me, this is the only software where every upgrade is a "must have".

Thanks,
RodM

I am a living example of a small flaw in the logic. One song listed was housed at Soundcloud but has been taken down. Do we have an "update" process so we can avoid people going to apparently broken links when the song was taken down on purpose?

But a GREAT idea and we all appreciate the shortcut to listening to other user's work.

I think they went through the songs in this forum section, so if posted in another forum section they likely weren't included.

I wonder the same thing as Eddie. Since these links rely on songs existing on the user's server, can they be editable so as to keep them live in the event of the user changing severs? Maybe allowing the original poster some edit options later.. I'd like that.

Hi,
To echo everyone else: "An upgrade process to edit a link after the fact would be a great feature."
Bob,
I also noticed the incredible amount of work it took to put the user showcase list together. I don't think genre was listed on many of the original posts, but I guess the real tracks or midi tracks used would indicate genre. I did post my songs in this forum but it's really OK. I think the user showcase list of songs is current up to a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I'll make the next list. That is of course if I don't lose my nerve and hurry and delete my soundclick account. Nobody (except my wife) knows I'm into music anymore. It is a big step for me personally to post music public. I hope to rediscover a love of music I once had in my youth. I guess that is something I can still do privately too.
Thanks again,
RodM

Hi,
We've updated the list, to list songs that are newest and use lots of RealTracks/RealBand or BB in general nearest the top. Also added a tab called RealTracks that has songs that use lots of RealTracks.

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
