Did you know we have a My Favorite Things forum? We'd love it if you shared your favorite features in Band-in-a-Box and RealBand there, along with what features you use the most and why - we absolutely LOVE getting feedback!

Take a peak at other posts while you're there - you never know... someone else's favorite feature might become yours too!

This is an important perspective to hold on to.
{alert: fictitious wild idea} Perhaps members should be required to post (1)here for each post with strong complaints

That kind of thing is actually quite important. It can be hugely demoralising if the developers and maintainers only ever see complaints and bug reports, even though sometimes those complaints are driven by users having very high expectations.

Actually on most other sites all you see are complaints and bug reports. However there have been a number of PGMusic praise threads over the years, something that I have not seen in other sites.

We do appreciate all feedback, of course!

One of the things I really like about the My Favorite Things forum is that it can be eye-opening to other users who may not utilize that feature or procedure that is being discussed.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
