Honoured to be included in the showcase awards amongst so many people I admire and respect.
Congratulations to all of them.

So, a big thank you to Peter Gannon and all the staff at PG Music for the award, but
also for producing such an amazing program as BiaB. It really has changed for ever, the way
I write and record music.

Cheers, ROG.

I couldn't say this any better. I am honored to included in this list of fantastic musicians.

Thank you Dr. Gannon for your generosity.

This continues to AMAZE me.

What other company would DO this? Like having the community of this forum isn't reward enough? Like having this MAGICAL product to realize the best potential of our music isn't enough? To have the people who "keep it going" and keep it energized "recognized" in this way is mind-boggling.

AMAZING.

Congratulations to all the awardees. It's a good list - a varied list of styles and influences, locales and personalities.

Y'all done good.

Thank You, Dr. Gannon - and all the folks at PGMusic. You make our lives better.

You beat me to it and said it better than I probably would've, so in a true "if it's not broken, don't fix it", I'm nicking this as my sentiment cool

p.s. I see this has already been quoted once, I have a feeling it will be again before this is over wink

EDIT: p.s.p.s. I also have a nasty suspicion that the only reason I made the cut is because that adds such an obscure country to your bragging list - and I'm the only one from it who's active on here! grin

Thank you, Dr. Gannon! Your generosity never fails to amaze me.

It's an honor to be listed among such a long list of very talented musicians, singers, composers and songwriters.

The friendly, family atmosphere exhibited here by folks at all levels of musicianship is not found anywhere else on this planet.

Thanks again for this wonderful award and to all other awardees for their contributions to Users's Showcase. Such fantastic music.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

Check it out! www.pgmusic.com/?vid=2AgfV7emdLQ

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!

YouTube Find - Your First 15 Minutes with Band-in-a-Box

Woody Piano Shack recently got their hands on Band-in-a-Box after a long time without the program - and they're thrilled!!

Check out this video they've shared to their YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/9dxSfwjBvG0

Thanks Woody Piano Shack!
