Hi, friends !

Congrats to all the winners !
I knew I was without a chance
this year having been away for
so much of the time !

I think I´ll try to come back
this year if time and health
permits !

The BIAB is a fantastic tool
making composing so much easier
when you have an orchestra beside
you as you are experimenting your
way forward with your tune !

Absolutely incredible !
and how much hasn´t it helped
you learning how different
chords do sound ?

A magical tool, without a doubt !

stay Safe and Take Care everyone !

Cheers
Dani

Thank you to PG Music for your generosity. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes who works there. And thank you to all the creative contributors to the showcase. This forum is hands down the most supportive and sharing music community on the internet. This amazing software certainly came in handy during the lockdown periods of this past year. Tom

Talk about a great and generous company! Thanks for allowing me the privilege of using your fantastic software. PG Music is, bar none, the most supportive and kind company in the music business. And thanks to all the forum members who listen our music - and that of all the other terrific artists/composers who hang out there.

Christmas in February ... what a great idea! Thanks to Dr. Gannon and his great staff. Wishing you a very successful year in 2021.

Wow.

Thank you PG Music for your extraordinary kindness. Band-in-a-Box is, for me and I'm sure it's the same for many others, literally a lifesaver. Many have been the times when, when confronted with a tricky situation, I have just sat down to write a song about things ... sometimes to have a cathartic experience, sometimes because I felt inspired, etc. Long story short, none of this would have ever been possible without this absolutely unique software - the only one of its kind I know of.

Thank you for including me amongst the winners. I am genuinely humbled to be amongst such amazing artists. The Showcase forum has provided me with the opportunity to talk to like-minded people on a daily basis, to learn and get moral support for my songs and, not least in the slightest, to hear others write music - often at a level I can only aspire to. Thank you so much, therefore, for hosting these amazing forums.

PG Music = a one-of-a-kind company, creating unique music software which uniquely facilitates music writing alike no other music software I have ever been aware of, with a generosity and soul that's second to none. Genuine thanks once more.

Thanks very much PGMusic, man, what a company!

And what a product! I've been using BIAB since the floppy days. I can't imagine life without it at this point, it has certainly changed my musical journey.

Thanks also for these forums. I've learned a lot during my time here and have met many great musicians and songwriters. And I have made some great friends here too.

Congratulations to all!
