Honoured to be included in the showcase awards amongst so many people I admire and respect.
Congratulations to all of them.

So, a big thank you to Peter Gannon and all the staff at PG Music for the award, but
also for producing such an amazing program as BiaB. It really has changed for ever, the way
I write and record music.

Cheers, ROG.

This continues to AMAZE me.

What other company would DO this? Like having the community of this forum isn't reward enough? Like having this MAGICAL product to realize the best potential of our music isn't enough? To have the people who "keep it going" and keep it energized "recognized" in this way is mind-boggling.

AMAZING.

Congratulations to all the awardees. It's a good list - a varied list of styles and influences, locales and personalities.

Y'all done good.

Thank You, Dr. Gannon - and all the folks at PGMusic. You make our lives better.

You beat me to it and said it better than I probably would've, so in a true "if it's not broken, don't fix it", I'm nicking this as my sentiment cool

p.s. I see this has already been quoted once, I have a feeling it will be again before this is over wink

EDIT: p.s.p.s. I also have a nasty suspicion that the only reason I made the cut is because that adds such an obscure country to your bragging list - and I'm the only one from it who's active on here! grin

Thank you, Dr. Gannon! Your generosity never fails to amaze me.

It's an honor to be listed among such a long list of very talented musicians, singers, composers and songwriters.

The friendly, family atmosphere exhibited here by folks at all levels of musicianship is not found anywhere else on this planet.

Thanks again for this wonderful award and to all other awardees for their contributions to Users's Showcase. Such fantastic music.

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.

Video Help - My Band-in-a-Box® Won't Open!

Our NEW I want a video that shows me how to .... forum is off to a GREAT start! We've answered the common question/issue of "My program won't open!" with the following video: How To: Return to Factory Settings outside Band-in-a-Box (Win).

Want to see a video about a particular issue your having with the program? Post your request here, we're happy to help!!
