    I used BiaB until a few FAWMs ago, when I got mad at PG Music for what I thought was deceptive advertising. The short story is that the upgrade ads implied (at least to me) that I was getting more in the upgrade than they actually provided. So I felt cheated, I wrote to them. They did nothing. So I stopped using them. But. . . . it's a very nice tool (as of course you all know) for roughing out a song quickly. So. . . I'm thinking about getting back into it.

    BTW, anyone else have mixed feelings about PG Music as a company?

    I have never had any issues with PG Music. But I first got the everything pak and then always got the Ulra-Pak upgrades, so I was always getting all the realtraks and accesories. Therefore, I couldn't be disappointed. The other options were pretty confusing, though!.

    I haven't upgraded or used BIAB in a couple of years, but I think it is a very powerful program -- especially if you just want to do backing tracks. I have BIAB 2017.

    no issues with them either i am upgraded to 20. Great for doing quick professional demos for clients.

    @paulhenry Year after year the biab interface looks the same and the yearly version updates are more added real styles. I think biab works very well but I've never been interested in real styles. No need to update here. I'm only interested in the midi features (fabulous).

    Their PowerTracks ProAudio was the first DAW I ever used. They were very late to VST incorporation and I pretty much left the use of their products. I have no issue with their integrity, but their GUI and advertising graphic design are 10-20 years old. I think that severely limits the size of their customer base. It’s the ideal tool for FAWM but far too confusing as to what is really needed with the 50 different ‘PAK’s. They need to simplify their product offerings down to 3 choices only. Like Steve Jobs did to the Apple product lineup when he came back there.

    OK...what is BIAB??

  • @lvgd09  2 weeks

    Short for band in a box software. I prefer biab (lower case).

    Thanks @lvgd09 😮)

    If anyone is thinking of trying it out for fawm please send me an email. I recently became a reseller and can offer some good prices.

    No issues with PG Music here, but I don't use it much anymore since switching to modern electronic style.

    I finally bought it. Will see if I can manage anything with it this year

  • @pearlmanhattan  1 week

    I upgrated to 2020! I'm excited about really digging into it this year. There's so much of it I still don't know much about.

    Whatever is... biab?

  • @scottlake 1 week

    Visit and watch the demos. Enter chords, pick a style, out comes a backing track.

    Of course there is more to it than that, but that is the basic concept.

    I have been using the more limited competitor iRealpro on Android for years. Today as part of my pre-fawm gear acquisition syndrome, I flipped the switch and bought band in a box pro 2020. I suspect that robot arrangements will dominate my FAWM this year.

    Just upgraded to the 2020 version. I am excited and hope I can make time to make a meaningful contribution to fawm this year. I have just started a rather hectic job so that is taking most of my brain power! I am thinking simple songs with simple backing, mainly due to time constraints). Something like Cat Power, (that I have just learned about). Looking forward to finding some great lyrics.

    @kevinemmrich I listened to several of your songs that are showcased on the pgmusic website. Sounds good.

  • @kevinemmrich 1 day

    @ductapeguy I do have a lot of songs posted over there! If it hadn't been for biab, I never would have been able to create my own backing tracks. I found it to be a winderful tool.
