Hello Alan,

that's a lovely one, too (would anyone expect anything else?) - that soloist track is just awesome, I think.

Hope that Di and you had a happy Christmas - once again Maha and I would like to wish both of you a most healthy and enjoyable 2021.

Looking forward to a buch of new songs from you and some very pleasant communivication.

All the very best,

Stefan

Hi Guys!

Thank you very much. Most of the credit goes to BIAB. I just picked out a few tracks and threw a couple of chords in the soup. Hope your New year is the best ever.

Hi Ember ...

Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed the song. But, as I told Janice and Bud, much of the applause should directed to BIAB - it's such a wonderful product. Thank all of you for creating this marvelous software for us musicians. Wishing you and PG Music a really good 2021.

Alan

Stefan, My Dear Friend,

I hope all is well with you and your lovely Maha. Di and I are doing okay. We're getting settled into our new house. Also bought all new furniture. The checkbook is nervous! The house and furniture was our Christmas present to each other. I don't usually spend that much at Christmas!

I'm delighted you enjoyed the song. I sincerely appreciate the very nice compliments. Thank you! I, too, really enjoyed that acoustic guitar track. I heard it & loved it within a matter of seconds.

I do have a few more songs waiting in the wings. I'll be posting one every week or so.

I hope 2021 brings Maha better health and you that your visual problems stabilize. As you know, my technical background is visual health and I understand what is happening with your sight. Wishing nothing but the very best for both of you. Cheers and warmest heart-felt wishes.

Alan & Di


PS: For those who do not know, Stefan has some significant visual problems that make reading smaller print very difficult for him. Thus the larger font for my replies to him. And yes, Stefan has no problem with me mentioning his visual issues.

Alan,
Smooth Latin flavor track. Something inline with Gypsy Kings. Pretty cool guitar! Enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing and happy holidays to you and DI.

Hi Misha ...

Thank you very much. And yes, in my ear it has a slight hint of Latin Influence. I raised the level of the brushes more than I usually do ti help that influence. I'm delighted you enjoyed. Thanks for letting me know!

Happy New Year, my friend.

Alan

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
