I wish all a good day as we remember those who died that we might live in the greatest, most free country, ever, in the entire history of mankind.

This is a song I wrote and recorded shortly after having gotten BiaB for the very first time.

I posted this simply as a salute to the men and women who are in this forum and have spent a portion of their lives in the armed service of this country.

SOMETHING TO DIE FOR

Thank you for your service.... Semper Fi!!!

Really great work Herb! Really well developed and well written story. Pretty heavy bridge-kind of intense for the feelgood mood of the song. A pleasure to listen to this! Take care. Greg

I gave listen.
Performed well and your voice easily fits the country genre.
I sense the sincerity with your tribute.
Well done.

Just curious, since you said 'Semper Fi'....were you a Marine also?

Back to topic....

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
