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

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
