If there were such thing as a Michelin Guide for companies who make software for music... you would probably be the only company to get all 3 stars!

I love the imagination, dedication and vision you show in developing this software and in how you support it in the forums and elsewhere!

Congratulations to all the winners - you are all worthy of it... you have posted so many stunning songs that just make my life better by listening to them.

For me 2019 has been a year of personal struggles and I haven't been as productive as I wanted to be, so I was surprised to be included in the list... but of course very happy to be there!

Thanks a lot, PGMusic!

Will

Dr. Gannon and company, thank you so much for your generosity. You have one of the best music products on the market in BiaB, a product that starts virtually all of my songs. I am very grateful to have BiaB in my arsenal.

I am also very honored to be included with some of the best songwriters on the planet.

This is the best site on the Internet.

It was a lovely surprise to receive a message from another forum member telling me I'd been included on the list of 2019 User Showcase Awards recipients.
The generosity this gift represents, regardless of the marketing savvy behind it, is very rare and very much appreciated.
Thank you PGMusic.

Thank you PGMusic, I jumped out of my chair when I saw my name there! When my blues forum (which operated very much like the User Showcase) went away after fifteen years, I was lost. The User Showcase gave me a place to keep my music going and expand my horizons in the process. Now to put all that tunemaking power to good use! Thanks again, PGM!!!!

This is very much appreciated. This past year has been the year for upping my musical education, haphazard as that tends to be. There is nothing so much fun and inspiring as learning a musical concept and immediately being able to put it to use with the brilliance, ease, and inspiration that comes with BIAB. Thanks for years of continual improvement and dedication that brings us to 2020.

I'd only want to add an encouragement to new forum members to dig into the forum, listen to, read, and support others, and show "us" what you got and are getting with the software. Not only can the rewards be tangible, but less tangible as well. You'll be inspired, challenged, and maybe even find yourself in friendly competition (even if your competitor doesn't know he/she is being competed with). That only comes with "giving"...the "receiving" will take care of itself.

Thanks, Dr. Gannon and all the PG staff in all roles.

Dr. Gannon And All The PG Music Staff ...

Thank you so very much. This has been a very difficult year for me and my wife. She almost died three times in 2019. She continues to hold steady and we're hoping for some improvement soon.

Band In A Box has been such an important part of my life during this time - as well as the good times. I am so thankful for your excellent products and wonderful staff. Truly, it makes a huge difference in my life.

And the joy I get listening to the other forum members is just wonderful. Thanks everyone for your fabulous contributions! Your posts are better than anything I hear on the radio. Sincerely!

Thank you so very much! I am honored and grateful for this literal life-changing gift. Wishing all of you at PG Music the very best in 2020.

And congratulations to all the other winners. What a marvelous group of musicians and singers!

Alan

Thanks! laugh

You've created both an extraordinary product, and nurtured a caring, supportive community of musicians.

It's an honor just to have my name listed among all these fantastic music makers and friendly people!

(Double checks to make sure they didn't accidentally mis-type my name when they meant "David Synder" instead! wink )

To Peter and all the staff at PG Music.

Once more I am blown away by your generosity. You have given my music "life" since I was lucky enough to stumble across this wonderful product in 2012. I continue to use it daily.

I am just about to take part in my fifth (I think) FAWM and will once again, spread the word far and wide amongst the songwriting community.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you so much, Peter and all the fine folks at PG Music! I don't know of any other company that does what you do. Nobody comes close to the quality that you produce. The finest studio musicians at our fingertips to generate top quality productions in hours, sometimes minutes! Incredible!

And then to honor us like this is remarkable. I cannot express how grateful I am. It is things like this that create fiercely loyal customers such as you have. All the friends that I have made on this forum have made similar comments to me about their sentiments regarding Band In A Box.

So thank you very much! I am honored, humbled, and flattered to be included in such a great group of people here. Congratulations to all the winners! (Actually, I think everyone who uses BB, and puts themselves out there creatively are winners already!)

Dr. Peter Gannon,

I have been privileged to work backstage helping to promote this awesome software. It has breathed new life in me since a stroke had sidelined my musical aspirations. Today, thanks to you, I am writing the best music of my life that is being heard around the world.

A sincere 'thank you' seems inadequate somehow but "Thank you" for everything that you have done for me in my musical pursuits.

A sincere congratulations to all winners. You all keep me inspired to keep growing musically. Thank you all.

Doctor Peter Gannon and all of your staff at PG Music,

PG Music is the absolute GREATEST!
Thank you all so much.

BIAB is an unique and amazing product which I have been using for about 25 years.
And it is my most favorite among the music software that I own.
I'm very happy and honoured to have been included in this year's awards.

And… Congratulations to all the other winners!

All the best,

Shigeki Adachi

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

Video - Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - No Sound with MIDI?

Have you ever experienced a No Sound issue when you're working with MIDI in Band-in-a-Box® for Mac?

We have an online tutorial that can walk you through some troubleshooting to resolve this, but why not check out our newest YouTube video instead?

Click here to watch...

Of course, you can always reach out to us directly if you're in need of assistance with the program!

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser!

Don't underestimate the power of the Feature Browser added with Band-in-a-Box® 2020! This is a GREAT resource when you "know that you knew a feature" but just can't quite remember how to find it!

Simply click on the [?] at the top of the program (near the Mixer on the right) to launch this feature. From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window. If you're typing it in, you'll see that list change to only show the results that could fit your search - once you find what you're looking for, you can read more about it when you choose [Manual], if there's a video for the feature you can choose [Video] to view it, OR - if you don't need to read about the feature and just want to USE it, choose [Do it] and you're all set!

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:

10:19 - New Feature - Feature Browser

Give the Gift of Music with Band-in-a-Box®!

Did you wait too long to purchase flowers, a card, or book a restaurant for Valentine's Day? Or, maybe material gifts just aren't your thing?

Why not whip together a song in Band-in-a-Box? It's as easy as typing in some chords, choosing a style, and pressing play!

Or, take it a step further with the help of the Audio Chord Wizard and our StylePicker Song Titles Browser feature!
How???
-Use the Audio Chord Wizard to analyze their favorite song and provide you with the chord progression
-Take that chord progression and start a new project in Band-in-a-Box (choose "Erase the Audio WAV file in BB" | Enable style)
-Head to the StylePicker window, search for a style for that song using the "Song Titles Browser" Feature (top right)
-Choose from the list provided
-Press Play!

Like what you hear? Save it, and viola!
