We've added to the RealCombos included in the Pro & MegaPAK packages with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

The Band-in-a-Box® 2018 Pro includes 300 RealTracks instruments in over 100 bands - that's 100+ more than previous years - listen to them here.

There are now over 500 RealTracks in 300 Bands in the Band-in-a-Box® 2018 MegaPAK! Take a look at all the RealTracks & RealDrums in the MegaPAK here.

To receive the new version with these new RealCombos, upgrade during our special for as little as $59! http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.htm.

Get ALL the Regular RealTracks & RealDrums when you upgrade to an UltraPAK or Audiophile Edition!

All these updates I see talking about UltraPak, MegaPack, PlusPak, XtraPak, add-ons, listing the number of tracks, combos, and styles available has my head spinning :-(

So I have a very simple question: for me personally, who decided that $99 was too steep, (and TBH not entirely justified given what was offered), for the upgrade from the 2017 UltraPlus to 2018 Plus, does anything you announce here sweeten the deal for me by adding something at no extra cost above the $99?

Thanks!

The PlusPAK (which includes the new 2018 version and NEW RealTracks Sets 278-300) for just $99 is a great deal ($30 savings during our special - regular $129), and if purchased at this special price during December includes the Free Bonus PAK (to 'sweeten the deal' even more).

Since we're celebrating 30 Years of Band-in-a-Box with our 2018 release, we've PACKED the Free Bonus PAK with the following items:
-10 MIDI SuperTracks
-7 Instrumental Studies
-Video RealTracks Set 1: Pop Balland Band (Video RealTracks NEW with Version 2018)
-40 AmpliTube Presets & 37 Associated Styles
-52 Loops (including including "PercussionFX" and "DrumKit Classic Beats")

A detailed list can be viewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.bonuspaks_2018.htm.

Don't you mean a $30 savings?

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
