Thank you!

I'll put it to good use.

You make a great product and we're lucky to have such a good tool with which we can create our music.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but not both.

The magic you are looking for is in the work you are avoiding.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Congratulations to everyone on the Showcase! You folks at PGMusic are truly the ones to be congratulated. We get to play and you all work to make our play much better, much more fun, and if we ask for your help, you always give it as if we are the reason you wake up in the morning. hehe. AND you bring this incredible collection of creative and helpful music makers together to help, support and encourage one another. If the whole world was designed and run like PGMusic, what a wonderful world it would be.

My favorite advances in the 2024 version are the Tracks View and all that can be accomplished there, the extended ways for partial regeneration, how all Utility Tracks are now editable on the Bar Settings, the floating windows that work seamlessly with the Chord Sheet, and of course the (F7) MultiPicker. Oh, yeah, and the increased speed.

Thanks

This is ever so kind. Whatever I may say, beyond "thank you", it has already been said by many others. Nevertheless, I am indeed immensely, immensely grateful. This is not just a tool, however brilliant, for us musicians ... this is a lifeline. To create is my life, and (I think) everyone's on this forum. Take away creativity from us, and we literally wilt away. You have not only created what I regard as simply the best electronic musically creative tool available anywhere, these days (none of my songs would exist, even in the "in-the-making" phase, without Band-in-a-Box), but - through your immense kindness in offering these awards to us - helped us all stay creative and even reward our creativity. I am, therefore, humbly and eternally grateful, even if my own words will never express that quite adequately enough. THANK YOU.

Peter and team,
You guys are truly a top shelf organization. I'm just a newbie that took up music late in life and am so humbled to be counted along side with a pantheon of talent.

Not only is BiaB central to every song I produce but this forum is a great community of folk willing to help and inspire each other on their individual musical journeys; what a combo!

Many, many thanks for all you do and all you've created. smile

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.

Dr Gannon and Team,

It's a great honor to be included on this list of talented contributors. I sincerely appreciate this. there is no way by which to let you fully understand what a difference your products have made in my life. There's the myriad of musical possibilities, of course, but it extends far beyond that for me.

Sincere thanks, Wishing everyone at PG Music a warm and successful 2024.

Alan

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!

Congratulations to the 2023 User Showcase Award Winners!
