"Coolest program around! In my opinion, the sound of the music is much improved with the 2017 upgrade!"
"Every one of the new RealTracks sounds fantastic. It is amazing 'the heights' to where PG Music has taken BIAB."
"Natural Arrangements Feature: Whatever magic this does, I'm hearing better voice leading in the guitar and piano on my Bossa Nova song with advanced extensions. I'm really liking this!"
"What a sensational spread. Most impressive. Thank you!"
"Love the dual layer chord view! How great is that. I like being able to see two alternative notations together (especially Nashville and standard notations)!"
"These RealTracks are an incredible achievement. Like the others above me, 'Wow' was the first thing that sprang to mind!"
"Receiving my installation on a flash drive is perfect!"
"I am impressed with the new RealTracks, to say the least!!! Can't wait to get creative with this excellence!!!!"
"I like what I am hearing!!! Awesome stuff, PG Music!"
"The new RealTracks are stupendous!"
"I just installed 2017 for Windows and and while it took a few minutes to become familiar with it. The end result is a MUCH more usable application UI. It looks like someone spent some serious time re-thinking how a UI should operate for BiaB and did an awesome job on the re-design."
"The first few demo's I played with only 2017 RealTracks... WOW, Felt almost like being 12 again. Absolutely incredible marriages and sounds to hear."
