Doctor Peter Gannon and all of your staff at PG Music,

PG Music is the absolute GREATEST!
Thank you to all so much.

And… Congratulations to all the other winners.

I wish you all a fun and prosperous 2017!

Dr. Gannon and the entire PGMusic staff...

Unbelievable.

Amazing.

It is near unfathomable that a company would do this. Takes my breath away. The "magic" that is Band-In-A-Box is gift enough. The functionality that it provides is nearly incomprehensible - allowing people at ALL levels to bring a high level of professionalism to their music, no matter how simple or how complex. It is astounding. The fact that you present these awards is only more so. Astounding.

Thank You!!!

Congratulations to all the recipients.

Dr. Gannon and everyone at PGMusic,

This amazing software which has progressed over the years from a backing band to a virtual composing collaborator can only be upstaged by the generous gesture of these awards. The forum has become a great venue in which to showcase our work along with being a valuable educational tool. I have a pretty active imagination but in my widest dreams I never would have guessed that the software would have developed to this point and I can't wait to see what is in store for the future. Congratulations to all my forum friends who received this amazing award and also to all the people who participated in this wonderful community. Thanks so much, Tom

WHAT A COMPANY!!! I would never have thought a program could produce natural sounding, quality tracks, AND be so inspiring for songwriting. This program is a marvel! And, the generosity of the PG music is like something I've never seen before. Thanks so much Peter and Co.!! Unlike many fine musicians on the forum, I can barely play, and were it not for BIAB, I would not have had the most prolific and rewarding 5 years of my life with respect to creativity. I would have bought this product even if I couldn't use it, just to be part of this incredible forum. I have never seen such a group of wonderful, creative, kind and talented folks as you! Take care all!

Peter and the Stuff members,

Thank you very much for this really wonderful news and splendid gift. I am very happy and also deeply honored that I was chosen as one of the top 40 contributors of 2016.

BIAB is such a great application that can turn simple melodies into professional-level musical works. It is like a magic. I would like to thank the developers of BIAB for their supreme works that made it happen.

Thank you again,

Hiroshi (HiroshiK)

Dear Dr Gannon,

Thank you so much for including me in the list of forum awards! I am very grateful. You caught me by surprise.

Like so many people on these forums, your musical inventions have opened the door to a world of possibilities that would have remained closed to me without your software.

Band In A Box and Realband are outstanding programs and have allowed me to pursue a hobby of writing songs in ways that I could never have imagined prior to stumbling onto the program in 2006. During the course of my journey, I've learned arranging techniques, recording techniques, production strategies and have even become reasonably confident with singing! All of these have been possible because of what you and the PG Music team have created.

I honestly don't know of another company that is as generous and as considerate as PG Music.

Congratulations to everyone!

Regards,
Noel

Thank you Peter for your generosity. I an honored to included with such great award winning talent. If it wasn't for your company producing outstanding software I would have given up playing years ago. Plus this comes at a perfect time for me as all that I could afford this year was the basic package.

Thank you very much.

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.
