Thank you Dr. Gannon and all the staff at PG Music. To be included on this list is not only an honor, but is humbling to be included in a group of such talented and gracious people.

I seriously doubt there is a more generous, rewarding and honorable company in any retail business. Please note that my appreciation goes not only to - THE ENTIRE STAFF @ PG MUSIC - but also to my fellow forum colleagues who give mutually to each other with education, confidence, encouragement and respect. They have helped me grow in so many different ways - most of which would not have been possible without PG Music and it's wonderful products and the gift of this site.

Many thanks to the PG Music Family and the Family of Friends & Musicians on the forums.

I did not expect to be doing this today, and I can honestly say, I was completely flabbergasted when I realized I was included in this list. I want to thank each and every person even remotely connected to this fabulous software, with all my heart. BIAB & RB has enabled many, many musicians of all skill sets, to hear in real time, what they can hear in their heart and minds. I salute each and every one of the veterans and experts who have helped me along the way. Their input has been invaluable to me and I know to many others. I feel honored to be in such company. Thank you, one and all.

Dear Peter and all the PG Music staff.

Thank you so much for this wonderful gift. I have said so many times before how this software and this company has changed my musical life forever. It continues to give and give. I am looking forward to "wowing" all those folks on the FAWM forum with what this product can do and to continue to spread the good word about it to all who will listen.

Congrats to all the winners. I am honored to be included in this list.

Have a wonderful 2018

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at
