Thanks to Peter and all of the PGMusic people. It is an honor just to be named and remembered. Thanks also to Blue Attitude Dave for the timely reminder I've known about this for a couple or three days now, but I've been really busy. I hope everybody is doing well, and doing good too.

I am sure many echo my sentiment when I say this forum has been a huge help in nurturing my journey along, in and out of "the box."

#TBT - The Release of RealTracks with Band-in-a-Box® 2008!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2007, we added RealDrums, which program users were THRILLED to see!

1. Real Pedal Steel
2. Real Acoustic Guitar
3. Tenor Sax soloing (RealSax)

Do you remember these? We do! We got a chance to "show them off" at Musikmesse that year, and the response was overwhelming - EVERYONE loves RealTracks! Adding real instruments played by top studio musicians adds an exciting human element to all your Band-in-a-Box songs!

Now there are over 2,900 RealTracks available in RealTracks Sets 1-352! Get them ALL with every Band-in-a-Box® 2020 UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, or Audiophile Edition.
