What Bob said. I will probably be upgrading my phone this summer, and now that Verizon offers both Android and iPhone, it will be a tough decision.

I started with an HTC EVO but got a new job that forced Verizon, so switched to the ALMOST as good Motorola Droid X. If I had BIAB for Android, I would buy a tablet.

BTW, will this display notation or just changes ? If it is just changes, I already have an app for that (or could use .PDFs)

Really hoping it can show notation or I will save up for a Windows 7 tablet. Would still appreciate ANY Android support, though.

Loaded like a charm... I will have to reset my router (forgot the password years ago) to pass the ports through to my desktop, but on my wireless LAN it is working beatutifully. VERY impressive port in such a short amount of time. Tunes sound great !

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
