Peter,
Thank you SO much for this award. To be included in such illustrious distinguished company is reward itself.
In fact having BIAB to put my thoughts and words to music is it's own reward.
Thank you.

All the best for the future

Congratulations, everybody. Hopefully I'll have some time to submit music this year; unfortunately too many life events took precedence in 2016, but I'll try to make time for more music submissions in 2017.

It's absolutely awesome the wonderful music that we can listen to on the "PGMusic Channel" (I often listen when I'm out walking the dog in the mornings). I don't get to post my comments much (it's hard to do while walking and holding a leash in one hand), but the quality of music coming out of our friendly forum community is phenomenal.

Again, congratulations to all the winners.

What a fantastic gesture and recognition.

Congratulations to all the winners (well deserved).

I cannot think of any other company that would acknowledge, let alone reward so many of its customers in this way.

PG Music is truly unique in this personal approach. Long may it continue.

Dr. Gannon and the entire PGMusic staff...

Unbelievable.

Amazing.

It is near unfathomable that a company would do this. Takes my breath away. The "magic" that is Band-In-A-Box is gift enough. The functionality that it provides is nearly incomprehensible - allowing people at ALL levels to bring a high level of professionalism to their music, no matter how simple or how complex. It is astounding. The fact that you present these awards is only more so. Astounding.

Thank You!!!

Congratulations to all the recipients.

Dr. Gannon and everyone at PGMusic,

This amazing software which has progressed over the years from a backing band to a virtual composing collaborator can only be upstaged by the generous gesture of these awards. The forum has become a great venue in which to showcase our work along with being a valuable educational tool. I have a pretty active imagination but in my widest dreams I never would have guessed that the software would have developed to this point and I can't wait to see what is in store for the future. Congratulations to all my forum friends who received this amazing award and also to all the people who participated in this wonderful community. Thanks so much, Tom

WHAT A COMPANY!!! I would never have thought a program could produce natural sounding, quality tracks, AND be so inspiring for songwriting. This program is a marvel! And, the generosity of the PG music is like something I've never seen before. Thanks so much Peter and Co.!! Unlike many fine musicians on the forum, I can barely play, and were it not for BIAB, I would not have had the most prolific and rewarding 5 years of my life with respect to creativity. I would have bought this product even if I couldn't use it, just to be part of this incredible forum. I have never seen such a group of wonderful, creative, kind and talented folks as you! Take care all!

Thank you very much for this really wonderful news and splendid gift. I am very happy and also deeply honored that I was chosen as one of the top 40 contributors of 2016.

BIAB is such a great application that can turn simple melodies into professional-level musical works. It is like a magic. I would like to thank the developers of BIAB for their supreme works that made it happen.

Thank you again,

Dear Dr Gannon,

Thank you so much for including me in the list of forum awards! I am very grateful. You caught me by surprise.

Like so many people on these forums, your musical inventions have opened the door to a world of possibilities that would have remained closed to me without your software.

Band In A Box and Realband are outstanding programs and have allowed me to pursue a hobby of writing songs in ways that I could never have imagined prior to stumbling onto the program in 2006. During the course of my journey, I've learned arranging techniques, recording techniques, production strategies and have even become reasonably confident with singing! All of these have been possible because of what you and the PG Music team have created.

I honestly don't know of another company that is as generous and as considerate as PG Music.

Congratulations to everyone!

Regards,
Noel

Thank you Peter for your generosity. I an honored to included with such great award winning talent. If it wasn't for your company producing outstanding software I would have given up playing years ago. Plus this comes at a perfect time for me as all that I could afford this year was the basic package.

Thank you very much.

Hello Peter,

On behalf of Paddy Gobel (Paddy G.) who at the moment is not able to respond himself, we thank you very, very much for the prize. (We are good friends both on the forum as well as outside the forum.)
He wants you to know, that it means a lot to him!

Rob and Anne-Marie

Thank you, Peter and the rest of your marketing staff for the generous award bestowed on me. BIAB changed my musical life back in the early 90s. The introduction of RealTracks and RealDrums, and their continued growth and enhancements have been a godsend. I couldn't have released a new recording each Thursday in 2016 without this powerful tool.

I am so proud to be able to use your products, and I am so grateful and honored to be mentioned among so many wonderful people as an award winner.

Best to all,

Thank you Peter and all the BIAB team. I'm thrilled! Realtracks have inspired all the songs I've written in the past year and the considerate feedback from forum members has gently urged me forward with each production. It's great to see many of those forum members also on this list. Congratulations y'all!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
