Dr. Gannon, thank you for this great generosity.
I'm proud to be a part of this group and humbled
by all the talented folks here.
I've loved using Band In A Box for many years now.
It's still the go to, the one, the best out there
even after all these years and it continues to
amaze me with each new version.

thank you so much,

Kenny

Thank you Dr. Gannon and all the staff at PG Music. To be included on this list is not only an honor, but is humbling to be included in a group of such talented and gracious people.

I seriously doubt there is a more generous, rewarding and honorable company in any retail business. Please note that my appreciation goes not only to - THE ENTIRE STAFF @ PG MUSIC - but also to my fellow forum colleagues who give mutually to each other with education, confidence, encouragement and respect. They have helped me grow in so many different ways - most of which would not have been possible without PG Music and it's wonderful products and the gift of this site.

Many thanks to the PG Music Family and the Family of Friends & Musicians on the forums.

Alan & Di

I did not expect to be doing this today, and I can honestly say, I was completely flabbergasted when I realized I was included in this list. I want to thank each and every person even remotely connected to this fabulous software, with all my heart. BIAB & RB has enabled many, many musicians of all skill sets, to hear in real time, what they can hear in their heart and minds. I salute each and every one of the veterans and experts who have helped me along the way. Their input has been invaluable to me and I know to many others. I feel honored to be in such company. Thank you, one and all.

Dear Peter and all the PG Music staff.

Thank you so much for this wonderful gift. I have said so many times before how this software and this company has changed my musical life forever. It continues to give and give. I am looking forward to "wowing" all those folks on the FAWM forum with what this product can do and to continue to spread the good word about it to all who will listen.

Congrats to all the winners. I am honored to be included in this list.

Have a wonderful 2018

Dr. Gannon and all the PG staff, thank you for including me in this exercise of generosity to your loyal followers. It is astounding to see that a company in this day and age genuinely cares about their customers. To all the winners CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done. To all that continue to follow or participate in the forum, thanks for making this such a rewarding experience. It's almost hard to believe the consideration and kindness that has been shown here in this wonderful community of writers, musicians, and producers. I believe we are all truly lucky to have found this product and this forum, Tom

We deeply appreciate the honor and what PG Music has brought into our lives. Six years ago we never dreamed we would ever write and record music again. The passing of our friend and mentor Randy Howard and subsequently leaving our band had taken away our music making desire. But we continued to listen to and enjoy many musical genres. We switched from a PC to a Mac and it came with a DAW....hmmmm...I explored it out of curiosity, googled it a bit and ran across mention of BiaB. So now in addition to our love of the outdoors we have this wonderful product that has led us on a musical journey we never dreamed of. And that journey includes making forum friends that have become much more than virtual "net friends."

Customer service and satisfaction are easy words to say. Meeting those expectations is something that relative few companies do well. Dr. Gannon and staff present an example of what can be done when the focus is genuinely not only on a great product but also on those individuals who use that product.

Thanks again. It means a lot!!

Thank you PG Music for your generosity. I am really honored to be included in the award list.

BIAB has given me really much joy as a songwriter. I published almost 40 songs last year with BIAB arrangement. And not joy for me only: last year it gave me also opportunity for intensive collaboration. I arranged several songs with BIAB for Miira and one of them (introduced on this forum Letters To Johny) got an honorable mention in the SongDoor songwriting competition, I believe that the BIAB arrangement gave that song an extra push.

Congratulation to other winners and thanks to all amazing showcase forum contributors for your music and feedback.

Janne

As I read all of the comments about this award and the winners I try to say something different but there's no use. Just about everything has been very well said.
Thanks you Peter and all the staff for this amazing honor.

Many thanks to all of you of PG Music for this beautiful gift.
I look back to four/five years ago;I was trying several music programs when I ran into Band in a Box.
I look at today and I can consider the great musical improve I have had.

My compositions give me great satisfaction and fun. BiaB is absolutely irreplaceable (and I don't look for other programs anymore grin

Compliments to all the winners, a great group of people. I am just sorry regret that we can communicate
via pc. Sometimes I think what could come out if we could play together live!

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.

The Download Manager - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

The "Download Manager" within Band-in-a-Box® for Windows is a great tool to confirm or help with the installation of your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows program!

What does the Download Manager do?
Automatically installs Band-in-a-Box® content (RealTracks, RealDrums, etc.) in the background, so you don't have to sit there the whole time! It can also confirm that you've completely installed your purchase.

How do you use it?
Within the program, go to Help | Utilities | Run Download/Install Manager now. Using your activation code, the program will analyze the installation folders, and list anything that still needs to be downloaded and installed.

Learn more about the Download Manager with this tutorial, or check out the topic within the Online Manual.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Online Manual - Chord List & Shortcuts

Visit the Chord List of our Online Manual, and you'll see all the chords that can be used within the program! The list includes a few Tricky Chords and Shortcut Chords that you may find useful too!

Tricky Chords:
C5b This is "C flat 5." It is spelled this way to avoid confusion.

You can type C-7 for Cm7 (i.e. use the minus sign) or C7-9 for C7b9.

Shortcut Chords
If you enter a lot of songs, you will appreciate these shortcut keys.
