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!

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.

RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Spanish for Windows is Here!

¡Hay más de 50 nuevas características en Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Hay mejoras en RealTracks (RealTracks Vocal de Sonido más Suave, RealTracks Engrosamiento, RealTracks "Find-a-Sub" y MultiRiffs). La mayoría de los RealDrums ahora tienen RealCharts (con notación de batería precisa). Hay un nuevo navegador de Artistas RealTracks para encontrar información / biografías / enlaces / listas de RealTracks en todos los artistas. Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!
