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

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.

#FunFactFriday - Where is PG Music Inc?

Did you know that PG Music Inc. is located in Victoria, British Columbia (Canada)?

Victoria, BC is located on Vancouver Island. Don't let the name fool you, we are not located in Vancouver (a common mistake...)

Our city is home to and endless list of attractions, including: the Legislature Building (we are the capital city of British Columbia), the Craigdarroch Castle, loads of Art Galleries, Butchart Gardens, the Royal BC Museum, CFB Esquimalt, and loads of other great tourist stops! We are also lucky enough to have a huge music scene (a few of our PG Team members perform often!).

There has also been a lot of movies and TV shows filmed here - including X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and X-Men: The Last Stand (Royal Roads University is the Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters)!

Want to learn more about Victoria? Visit the Tourism Victoria website: www.tourismvictoria.com/

Herb Hartley's Song Success!

If you frequent the User Showcase Forum, then you've likely heard one of the many songs shared by "Guitarhacker" (Herb Hartley) - most recently Something To Die For & Jesus Is Risen.

Well, Herb just announced that his songs have also landed some TV show placements - how amazing is that!?!
In case you missed it, read all about this announcement here.

Here at PG Music, we think this is awesome! Congratulations Herb!

#TBT - The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

Travel back in time to December 2001, and the release of Band-in-a-Box 11 for Windows... which included the new feature The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

This new feature was described as:
Many people who play music by ear think of songs in terms of “Chords and Melody.” However many MIDI files lack chord symbols, so they become difficult to learn without the user having to figure out the chords in a time consuming process. Now you can open up any MIDI file in Band-in-a-Box, and Band-in-a-Box will automatically figure out the chords of the song for you. It automatically analyzes the MIDI file, figures out where the bass, piano, melody and other tracks are, and then figures out the chord changes for the song. The chords are written onto the Band-in-a-Box chordsheet like any other song. This allows you to quickly learn how to play a song from a MIDI file - just read it into Band-in-a-Box and you’ll see the chord symbols, and then learn the Melody! You can also read tracks into the Melody and Soloist tracks.

If you're interested in reading about all the features released with Band-in-a-Box 11, visit this page. Other new features added with this version back in 2001 include Jazz Music Fonts for Notes, Symbols, Chords & Titles, Multiple Tracks of Notation, "Direct-to-Disk Audio Rendering, and more!

Introducing The Band-in-a-Box Keychain!

For just $5 you can add your very own Band-in-a-Box keychain to any order you place with us!

When placing an order for any item on our website, our shopping cart will offer to add this item to your shipment.

You can also purchase it on its own, here: www.pgmusic.com/bb_keychain.htm
