Congratulations to the winners but also congratulations to all the participants.

I'm sure this came down to coin tosses in some instances because all the entries were excellent. I'm just glad I wasn't asked to judge because judging this contest had to be extremely difficult.

Again, congratulations!

Being quite the competitive person (on the rare occasion I go into such a situation), I can't often sincerely say I don't care if I win or lose, but this time around I can genuinely say I honestly don't care that I didn't win! Especially since I can't fault any of the decisions for the winners smile

So congrats to all the fine artists who did win. Well earned cool

Wow!

I am happy to win, but I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been sad if I didn't win, because there are so many great songs in this contest.

I feel so lucky that I have found this forum with so many great song writers and music producers... and... just great, friendly people.


Thanks again,
Will

Yes, this was a great one and congrats to the winners--and congrats to all who entered, as has been noted.

I was truly amazed at the entries on this one from people I have heard before, and people who are new.

The level of songcraft, production, lyric writing, vocals, arrangement, creativity, and use of blended styles and tools was just astounding.

Some of the best work I have heard from everyone. I could tell a lot of people were really "going for it"--and it was magical to see and hear it all come together.

Some amazing talent on this forum for sure. Some real "producers."

Boo! Hiss!......opps, wrong forum laugh

It took me forever to go thru the entries, because the first time I was looking for "the winners"....by the 3rd time I was just enjoying all the tracks!

Congrats folks, you deserved the wins in my book, even tho it would have been a stale mate if I would have had to pick....

I think this was better than the last xtra contest, and I hope PG keeps this up. It is fun to hear what is done with styles that have not been around for too long.

Again, Congrats folks! cool

Congratulations to all of the winners. I'm sure that the judges had a very hard time picking a winner as all of the entries were excellent.

This contest really showed BiaB's versatility.

Learning with Band-in-a-Box® - Chords & Games

Want to hear what a chord sounds like? Type the chord, then press SHIFT enter. The chord will play as it is entered on to the chord sheet!

You can also familiarize yourself with how different chords sound using the Chord Builder feature of the program, which will audition different chords for you, based on your input.

Want more? Challenge yourself with some ear training with the included Pitch Invasion and Music Replay programs, accessible in the Practice Window!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above, and Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

Pitch Invasion & Music Replay can also be accessed within the bb\Songs and Lessons\Ear Training folder for the program.

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
