Am I the only Mac user who misses the 'Pianist Performance Series'?

Oh, how I wish I could have this program running on my Mac laptop OS 10.9.3.

Back in the day of OS 9 and OS 10 classic mode this program was entertaining, educational and very 'back-ground' soothing while I was doing other things.

Please, PG Music, bring it back for us Mac users.

Is there any chance of this happening? I would really welcome a response from the PTB (powers that be) on this matter.

Just give me some hope, at least.

I have been waiting for these updates for a LONG time, as well! All PG products should be revamped and updated to function on latest operating systems. They were great in their original day, and they can be even better now. It's hard to believe that the developers would want to leave a treasure trove of amazing tools left in the dust. PG, if you're reading this stuff (and I'm sure you do), we would love to hear something about this topic. Any chance these gems will ever be updated???

I got my Pianist series to run under Win10.
First install Virual Box (Virtual machine by Oracle - free). Then install Win XP (Available from Microsoft - free) and then the Pianist Series from Diskettes OR , as I have done, from files copies from the original diskettes.

Pianist 1,2,3 Jazz, Christmas, Jazz, New Orleans, Ragime, New Age.

I particularly want to listen to Valerie Tryon on Pianist 1,2,3.

I intend to rewrite the application , (Java ??? ) so that I can use directly under Windows.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
