You are amazing people at PGMusic with an outstanding approach to the difficult art of making customers happy!

Thank you so much for including me on that list!

I, however, got a relatively cheap ($50) upgrade to 2019 Ultra because I was one of the winners of the PAK5 contest in the autumn last year. I don't need a refund... instead please add the $50 to the prize fund for the next contest (if you are having one).

Thanks again,
Will

Well Peter, once more, many thanks for this company and your generosity. No one other company of this type or any (as far as I know) do this for their customers. Congratulations to all winners!

Thank you so much Peter and the whole PG Music team! For years I had songs in my head that I could not put into a meaningful tangible form until I found your product!

Congratulations to all the other winners who I know feel like I do! Let's all make some great music together now!

Peter & PG music crew.
First of all, thank you! This is quite a generous gift.

Generally PG forum members are very polite and respectful. I am trying my best to keep the spirit alive too. Kindly do not take this as insult of any kind. If it is possible, I would like to donate my prize share to contribute to development of BIAB. Specifically to further Mixer or/and GUI development. I know it is a drop in the sea, but I rather support the progress, than take it away.

My biggest prize was meeting some fantastic members who helped me with technical issues, creativity, language and even collaborated with me on a few tunes.

I recognize that this year update was a major step forward in the right direction. Please do not stop! Thank you.

Congrats to all winners! You kept me entertained all year long smile

Misha.

The Showcase did seem to Explode! this year. More posters, more songs. A flurry of activity. And for the most part, a great group of caring, involved folks...

As others have said, this is such an AMAZING thing for a company to do!!

HUGE thanks to the entire crew at PG Music - for what you do and the incredible software you have created (you coders do not get the credit you deserve!!!). It has changed ALL of our lives. I sincerely hope that the varying productions posted in the Showcase encourage prospective customers to purchase Band-In-A-Box and jump on board... it is THE most worthwhile music software available anywhere.

Congratulations to all the recipients.

For more information and to listen to demos, click here!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.

#TipTuesday
