Help! Tech S.O.S (Off topic)

General tech help for computers or music equipment.

The purpose of this forum is for people to get assistance from the community for any computer related or music equipment tech question. Anything remotely tech or musical is fair game.

Examples:

  • my guitar sound has a buzz when I plugin to my guitar
  • which type of guitar strings are best for a telecaster?
  • my iPhone won't charge -why?
  • what's a good set of home speakers for a living room.
  • should I buy an android or iPhone?
  • what's a good entry level saxophone to buy?
  • is a 4K TV worth it?

Note: This is an "Off-Topic" help forum. For assistance with Band-in-a-Box and other PG Music Products, you should post on the appropriate "PG Music Product" forum.

Happy National Dictionary Day!*

Head to our Other Windows Software page to find programs like PowerTracks, GuitarStar: Brent Mason Country, Video Guitar Lessons, and more!

Scroll down and you'll find our Guitar Chord Dictionary & Piano Chord Dictionary programs. Each Chord Dictionary allows you to choose a root note to select the chord you want to learn, and it will be displayed on-screen with either the piano keyboard or the guitar fretboard!

In the Guitar Chord Dictionary & Piano Chord Dictionary you can change the sounds within the Settings window, whether it be the Root note or the Chord, and it doesn't even have to be a guitar or piano! Looking through the options, there's various piano choices, guitar choices, organ, etc. - but you can also choose more unique sounds like the tuba, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, and more!
