Thanks PG. I really appreciate the award. Biab is an amazing program and has definitely changed how I write and perform these songs. I'm totally hooked and spread the word at every opportunity. Also the showcase is filled with great writers and artists. I have learned a great deal about recording by listening to this very knowledgable community. Y'all are the best! Lastly, congrats to all the winners and to all the participants in this contest. Now I have to go hat shopping as my head just swelled up a couple of sizes. Tom

Congratulations to each contest participant. Creating and posting a song in less than 30 days is an achievement worthy of mention.

Congratulations to the four contest winners! Don't spend your PG Music cash prize all in one place. grin

Congratulations to each and every person who contributed to this very fun and exhilarating contest, many of whom worked long hours on multi-layered works of art, producing truly original, groundbreaking, musical, stylistically innovative and extremely well produced songs that were far out of the norm or status quo or what one would expect to generally hear. A lot of truly phenomenal talent was on display. In my opinion, every person who submitted was a winner. Congrats to all, inclusive of the official well-deserved winners but also inclusive of all the artisans who contributed to this magnificent effort.

This is very humbling, thank you. Have to credit the lyricist, who made the song possible, and the vocalist who knocked it out of the park. Congratulations as well to the other winners. But then we're all winners here. smile

Congratulations to the winners and all my fellow participants!

Everyone did a great job.

Thanks PG Music for running a very stimulating competition. I hope to participate again on your next one! Must have been hard to choose with so many great entries, so I guess you now know what it's like for Simon Cowell.

Cheers

Give the Gift of Music with Band-in-a-Box®!

Did you wait too long to purchase flowers, a card, or book a restaurant for Valentine's Day? Or, maybe material gifts just aren't your thing?

Why not whip together a song in Band-in-a-Box? It's as easy as typing in some chords, choosing a style, and pressing play!

Or, take it a step further with the help of the Audio Chord Wizard and our StylePicker Song Titles Browser feature!
How???
-Use the Audio Chord Wizard to analyze their favorite song and provide you with the chord progression
-Take that chord progression and start a new project in Band-in-a-Box (choose "Erase the Audio WAV file in BB" | Enable style)
-Head to the StylePicker window, search for a style for that song using the "Song Titles Browser" Feature (top right)
-Choose from the list provided
-Press Play!

Like what you hear? Save it, and viola!

#TBT - The Release of RealTracks with Band-in-a-Box® 2008!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2007, we added RealDrums, which program users were THRILLED to see!

So, with Band-in-a-Box® 2008 we added RealTracks! Initially, 3 were released:
1. Real Pedal Steel
2. Real Acoustic Guitar
3. Tenor Sax soloing (RealSax)

Do you remember these? We do! We got a chance to "show them off" at Musikmesse that year, and the response was overwhelming - EVERYONE loves RealTracks! Adding real instruments played by top studio musicians adds an exciting human element to all your Band-in-a-Box songs!

Now there are over 2,900 RealTracks available in RealTracks Sets 1-352! Get them ALL with every Band-in-a-Box® 2020 UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, or Audiophile Edition.

Other new features added when we released Band-in-a-Box® 2008 included:
-MultiStyles
-Medley Maker
-Key signature changes at any bar
-"Fixed Do" Chord Entry and Display
...and more!

To reminisce on all the features released with older versions of Band-in-a-Box®, head to Help | Contents | Features within the program. There are separate lists going all the way back to Band-in-a-Box® Version 7!

New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows - Artist Browser

Did you know that there are over 160 Artists in our RealTracks & RealDrums library? Learn more about them when you're in the program by clicking aywhere in the "artist bio" within the RealTracks/RealDrums Picker or the [Artist Bio] button in other RealTracks/RealDrums selection dialogs - a Window will open the new Artist Browser dialog.

The Artist Browser dialog:
-Lists all artists and the instruments they play.
-Shows the total number of artists.
-Provides the biography of the artist for you to read
-Offers a text filter if available.
-Has a [More Info] button that launches the PG Music web page for that Artist.
-Also has a [OK - Show Artist RealTracks] button that will go back to the RealTracks/RealDrums selection dialog and list all the RealTracks/RealDrums that the selected artist plays.

Learn more about this new feature when you jump to the "More add-ons (Filter by Instrument, Artist Bios, RealDrum notation and more!)" section of our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows New Features Video.
