We deeply appreciate the honor and what PG Music has brought into our lives. Six years ago we never dreamed we would ever write and record music again. The passing of our friend and mentor Randy Howard and subsequently leaving our band had taken away our music making desire. But we continued to listen to and enjoy many musical genres. We switched from a PC to a Mac and it came with a DAW....hmmmm...I explored it out of curiosity, googled it a bit and ran across mention of BiaB. So now in addition to our love of the outdoors we have this wonderful product that has led us on a musical journey we never dreamed of. And that journey includes making forum friends that have become much more than virtual "net friends."

Customer service and satisfaction are easy words to say. Meeting those expectations is something that relative few companies do well. Dr. Gannon and staff present an example of what can be done when the focus is genuinely not only on a great product but also on those individuals who use that product.

Thanks again. It means a lot!!

Thank you PG Music for your generosity. I am really honored to be included in the award list.

BIAB has given me really much joy as a songwriter. I published almost 40 songs last year with BIAB arrangement. And not joy for me only: last year it gave me also opportunity for intensive collaboration. I arranged several songs with BIAB for Miira and one of them (introduced on this forum Letters To Johny) got an honorable mention in the SongDoor songwriting competition, I believe that the BIAB arrangement gave that song an extra push.

Congratulation to other winners and thanks to all amazing showcase forum contributors for your music and feedback.

As I read all of the comments about this award and the winners I try to say something different but there's no use. Just about everything has been very well said.
Thanks you Peter and all the staff for this amazing honor.

Many thanks to all of you of PG Music for this beautiful gift.
I look back to four/five years ago;I was trying several music programs when I ran into Band in a Box.
I look at today and I can consider the great musical improve I have had.

My compositions give me great satisfaction and fun. BiaB is absolutely irreplaceable (and I don't look for other programs anymore grin

Compliments to all the winners, a great group of people. I am just sorry regret that we can communicate
via pc. Sometimes I think what could come out if we could play together live!

Dr. Gannon and the PG stuff members managing and supporting the Forum,

Thank you very much for giving me this great honor. I am very happy to be included in the list of the winners together with other outstanding artists. I am encouraged and motivated a lot to continue my music creation work and share its outcome with the forum members including the PG stuffs. They are all excellent artists as well as appreciative listeners.

BIAB is my best partner, tutor, helper as well as Shelpa in my music creation journey. It took me to the foot of the high mountain and helped me try climbing up for the summit. Without it, I could just look it up from far away. I want to empress my gratitude to all those who are/were invloved in the development of this incredible application software.

Hiroshi

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 http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!

Support for ABC Notation Format in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

ABC notation is the simple text-based notation system used by musicians worldwide to store chords, melody, and lyrics of songs. Now with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows you can open and save songs in ABC notation format!

To save the song in ABC notation format, press the [Save As] toolbar button and choose Save as ABC notation file from the menu. Once opened, select a track that you want to save and choose your other criteria - The [Copy to clipboard] button will copy the file to the clipboard (that you can then paste it into other programs).

Have you stumped the Song Title Browser feature in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker?
