In his recent article, "Musical Perfection": Reflecting on the Contemporary and Timeless Bach Chorales, Frank Fortunato describes our Bach Chorales software as "a fun, interactive exposure to the Bach chorales, or to introduce the chorales to students in a more interactive way...": http://www.artsandchristianfaith.org/index.php/journal/article/view/47/45

Learn more about Johann Sebastian Bach and listen to choral ensemble sing some of Bach's most enchanting compositions with our multimedia software The Bach Chorales Volume 1 & 2, which includes a detailed history of the life and times of Johann Sebastian Bach and inspiring performances of his famous Chorales! www.pgmusic.com/bachchorales.htm

"...hours of personal entertainment using resources from one of the most timeless collections in the history of music."
-Frank Fortunato, http://www.artsandchristianfaith.org

Yesterday was Bach's birthdate and now this pops up on your front page - this is hardly a coincident? wink

It's a little late, but CONGRATULATIONS Eddie.

Just in case anyone who reads this thread is not aware, it's largely because of the Bach chorales that music theorists learnt how Bach harmonised music. This understanding eventually led to the four part harmony principles that are still used today.

Too bad this software is so platform specific, the video seems interesting enough (if a bit dated).

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
