Since I'm a PC user, I'm not sure how new this Mac version is (but per this support forum page, it looks like it's just been released): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/postlist.php?Cat=0&Board=UBB1MAC

In terms of support for Australia, I'd say you'd get the same level of support as anyone else - namely the support forums (see above link), which are very good, plus there are numerous video tutorials at www.pgmusic.com as well as on Youtube.

I find that the BIAB user community is very supportive of each other. (And that includes PGMusic itself.)

Thanks for these great links.

Could I please clarify that the backing tracks for jazz bop style can exclude piano e.g. can you have just
- bass and drums
- bass, drums and tenor sax

In any BIAB file or MIDI file, you can mute (or play solo) whatever is on the following tracks: Bass, Piano, Drums, Guitar, Strings, Melody, Soloist or Combo (or any combination thereof). Please note that you can change the voicing on any of the tracks, as well. So, for example, you could play Tenor Sax on the "Strings" track -- and go from there.

FYI -- While there's no free downloadable demo available, PGMusic offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all of their products.

Thank you Bert for the extra info.
I might invest in this in June.
I'm hesitant as to whether the Free Call number will actually work from Australia, but as you pointed out, the user community is very helpful.

The real styles are very good, I always turn off the piano...BUT take a listen to the piano parts BIAB comes up with once in a while - they are actually very good. A friend has the audio phile version of BIAB - and has played me some recordings he made with BIAB and him on guitar. Scary sounding. In a good way.

I don't find the interface annoying - it is what it is and I know how to get it to do what I want so I don't mind the look. My two cents.

Which jazz styles do you use ? Post-bop ?

Is there a post bop category? I almost always go to the style picker and filter on jazz real styles - I use the jazz swing w pian or el guitar. The Med Jazz swing quartet is nice too.

According to the above links, there does not appear to be a post bop category.

Maybe it is an add-on. I read this on Andy LaVerne playing in the style of Chick.
