Is it a typo that there is no piano roll advertised (or did I just miss it)?
Have the 2017 faults been rectified?

Mr. Gannon said in another thread here that 2018 would be getting the piano roll in an update.

It wouldn't be the first time PG has done this, if you remember they added VST compatibility to 2017 Mac BIAB, a month or so after it was released.

Some questions to the prospect of a Piano Roll release in a "future patch".

Is there any time frame for this?

Will it be before the May discount expires as I would like to see it before I considered upgrading.

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.
