For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

A huge shoutout and thanks to the entire team at PG Music. You all and your products rock! And we are most appreciative of being a recipient of the award. ALL the music we have created for the past eleven years simply would not have been possible without BiaB. And that includes songs that we have been honored to have licensed and featured on playlists, blogs and radio stations ... that speaks for us volumes to the versatility and sheer power of BiaB.

Thanks y'all!

I am so honoured and so humbled - thank you. You truly are the best music company I know of, bar none. Without PG Music, NONE of my songs would exist, right now. Your software is unrivalled, and, simply put, unlocks our musical creativity. On top of that, for you to run these awards, every year ... well, who does that? They really are another incentive for us to keep writing, to keep unearthing our talent from the deep down "tomb", within our hearts, where modern-day society would like it, all too often, sadly.

So - in short - thank you, PG Music. Thank you for your extraordinary software (no lesser adjective would even come close to do it justice) - thank you for coming up with something which opens up our musical potential to such an extent, and thank you for rewarding our CREATIVITY. You are unique. The most genuine of THANKS to you.

... and thanks to EVERYONE who showcases their songs on the forum. You are, all of you, the members of the most friendly and collaborative music forum I have ever been on. No competition against one another, here ... just genuine help, suggestions, encouragement. Not to even mention (it goes unsaid, I think) immense, immense TALENT. You ALL got the best out of me, and I firmly believe that, together, we get the best out of each one of us. It's a genuine honour to share the forum with all of you - I have learned so much, since the first time I landed on here with no mixing skills, no singing skills, but bags of sheer confidence, haha. Thank you for helping me learn how to mix, if only a little ... and for encouraging me to sing :-) Your help has meant that I've had the courage to actually release songs, not just sing in my bedroom, just for myself - so THANK YOU, forum members, for making this community of musicians the best music forum I know of, bar none.

To a wonderfully musical 2023 :-)

Peter & PG Team...

Thanks to you all, for all you do.
Band-In-A-Box is a miracle. I say that every year. And every year, it remains so.
There is nothing like it ANYWHERE else.
EVERY musician should own a copy.

Congrats to all the recipients.
The amount of GOOD MUSIC that gets posted to the Showcase is stunning.
And it's a terrific place to just "hang".

Thank you.

My goodness, thank you to the entire PG Music company. I am honored, and humbled, to see my name in a list of people who's work and music I admire so much. My congratulations to all of those on the list. This is my first year on the forum and the first time I've started using Biab, and I am so grateful to both the company and all of the users on this forum. You have been immensely helpful and encouraging to someone like me who is so new to production. This is quite a company, quite a group of users, and quite a generous gift! All I really know to say, is thank you - so much!

Brad

Peter and team,

it may sound a bit pathetic, but what you and your team have created has changed my life.

Your software not only makes it possible to realize what is in my head, but you have also created a great community that helps each other whenever possible.
You can be very, very proud of that!

Thank you smile

I'm honoured to receive this award.
I wasn't expecting it!

But let me tell you how gald I am using BiaB. It's a great piece of software that helps me a lot to creat my songs.
Many of my colleagues said or will say the same and it is the truth.
Thanks Biab for this opportunity.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."

Convenient Ways to Listen to Band-in-a-Box® Songs Created by Program Users!

The User Showcase Forum is an excellent place to share your Band-in-a-Box® songs and listen to songs other program users are creating!

There are other places you can listen to these songs too! Visit our User Showcase page to sort by genre, artist (forum name), song title, and date - each listing will direct you to the forum post for that song.

If you'd rather listen to these songs in one place, head to our Band-in-a-Box® Radio, where you'll have the option to select the genre playlist for your listening pleasure. This page has SoundCloud built in, so it won't redirect you. We've also added the link to the Artists SoundCloud page here, and a link to their forum post.

We hope you find some inspiration from this amazing collection of User Showcase Songs!
