I was thinking just that, or the face to the voice, since Toby clearly is the guy who narrates a lot of PG's videos cool

Incidentally, does anyone catch the website the interviewer is plugging there? It appears that his team reviews BBox on a regular basis, so it would be interesting to check out what they got.

I remember in one of the NAMM videos from an earlier year Tobin was narrating the product demonstration. He is patient and quick with a response.

Next thing is , how about more midi super tracks with solo-accompaniement for singers. We are a bunch of would be singers who love to sing vintage songs along with the melody and we have tried some of your midisupertracks.. solo-accompaniement, and we find it dresses up the melody real pro style. We want more, much more in all styles , particuly vintage years 20s- to 60s. Using BBIB we do covers for fun. Also we would like more tracks for back-vocals. A quicker ,easier, simpler entry for note based lyrics. We use vintage melodies .
We are not musicians but we have come to BBIB to learn to sing on cue, all of the songs of our younger years.. and it is a dream come through. Granted BBIB is overwhelming for non musicians but we are learning... great hobby and great for the brain.
One last request, in your manuals , why not adopt the writing style of the ''for dummies'' series. It tells the why of things along with the how. It would open BBIB to much more people.. non-musicians.. just singers like us.
