I almost gave up voting because there are just too many inconsequential links in this post - Next time I suggest you ONLY POST THE ONE LINK THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS!

Done.

Quite a few of the categories did not apply to me, but clicking "none" is a small price to pay to be able to give a boost to the good folks at PG Music and what I consider one of the 3 essential pieces of music software on my computer.

I'm providing the only link there is for voting. In order to cast your vote for us, you have to choose something from every category (or choose 'none' for these categories). smile

(yes, there were additional links in my post for the rules etc., however the "vote here..." link is the only one you'll need to vote)

And that's precisely the one link I nearly missed. I see now you've put that one in bold, however, which is much better cool

p.s. It then didn't even let me vote for your category anyway, something about "have already voted" confused
- So it looks like I got all worked up in vain

My Favorite Things - Seemingly Unlimited Flexibility!

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
