This one was a lot of fun and a lot of great style combinations to choose from in XTRA Styles Pak #5.

Good luck to all. I heard some awesome music over the past month in many different styles and genres.

I did not participate but I think all the participants created some of the best and most interesting songs I've heard created while using Band-in-a-Box.

This was a really good contest!

I've really learned a lot from listening and reading the supplementary information as provided by all the entries in this 2018 contest .

There certainly are very talented musicians here at PG that brought out the best in those Xtra Styles PAK 5 .

The judges in this 2018 contest now have a lot of work to do in deciding the winners .

I agree with everything that has been said. But I do have one question. How in hell are they going to be able to pick winners from these outstanding pieces of music?

My mind is like my Internet browser: 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.
