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! It has allowed me to express myself musically with confidence! I am very grateful for this wonderful gift and will do my best to produce my best works yet with it! 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.
