Richmac...

when I saw you had posted a Christmas song, I listened half expecting to hear lyrics containing the line "TUI Turtledoves..." LOL

(People who haven't been here for long won't know what the heck I'm talking about, but I think you probably do...)
wink

I always enjoy Christmas music, especially when it is original music created by my friends! It's been a while since you've posted, so it's good hearing from you again! (oh.. and an early "Merry Christmas" to you and your family!)

Hi Rich,

nice to have you back.
This is totally fun. It's how I imagine Christmas in New Zealand.
Enjoyable listen.

Thanks Mike for the listen and Christmas greetings. Hope you have a good one.

Thanks Charlie. Best wishes to you.

Thanks Pat. I had to restrain myself from putting Tui's in there somewhere. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Thanks Guenter. Yes nice time. Beginning of summer. Snowy Christmas greetings to you.

Hi Joanne. Merry Christmas! When people ask where
I'm going for Christmas i think to myself home cause it's the best place i know.

Hi Rob. Thanks. Yes this is my cheerful Christmas offering. The Christmas song i wrote first (may post it later) was so gothic and morbid i had to write this one to cheer my wife up. Best Christmas wishes to you and Anne-Marie.

Hi Rich ...

Good top hear a new one from you. We've been in and out quite a bit lately, too. Mostly health-related issues.

Nice, simple but very enjoyable Christmas tune. You did a real nice job on this. We totally enjoyed our listen. Best to you ...

Alan & Di

Merry Christmas and may God bless you too Rich.

What a cleverly written off the beaten path Christmas song. And the arrangement with that banjo was perfect.

Much enjoyed!

Josie

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

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."
