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

I write and record music.

Cheers, ROG.

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.

Dr. Gannon, thank you for this great generosity.
I'm proud to be a part of this group and humbled
by all the talented folks here.
I've loved using Band In A Box for many years now.
It's still the go to, the one, the best out there
even after all these years and it continues to
amaze me with each new version.

thank you so much,

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.

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.

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.

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

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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 http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

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 http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm 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.
