What are Norton's Power-User Style Disk owners saying?

Don't take my word for it. This is what the press and musicians just like you are saying about Norton Music's Style Disks for Band-In-A-Box.

Over 95% of all the people who have purchased one Norton Style disk
purchased another (I couldn't write a better ad if I tried.)

From the Music and Computer Press:

Norton Music's User Style Disks have been recommended in Keyboard Magazine, Electronic Musician Magazine, The Micro Computer Journal, Jazz Times Magazine, Music and Computers Magazine on the Internet , in the McGraw-Hill textbook, Multimedia Literacy by Dr. Fred T. Hoffstetter, and by word of mouth by musicians from all over the world.

"The (Norton Music) Style Disks are a good buy. Many of them do a great job of showing off Band-In-A-Box's capabilities, and one of them just might give you an idea for that next million dollar song." Electronic Musician Magazine

"In fact I will be recommending [in my new book] that people not even use Band-In-In-A-Box UNLESS THEY USE YOUR STYLES WITH IT! I'm not sure how you do it, but you make an average program turn into one on the "honor roll"! if you know what I mean. (I don't mean to say that all of PG's stuff is bad. They do hit a good style here & there.(jazz styles etc...)... but any musician that's honest would have to say that a lot of it is "square"). Your styles give it a more realistic, "live" feel.... thus the name of the program should then be changed to A-REAL-BAND-OUT-OF-THE-BOX"---- Maybe you should advertise.... "Is it LIVE...or is it NORTON? Guess that's already taken...Just a thought." Keith Burrows / Trumpet Sound Music Productions / Terre Haute, IN

"Thanks you so much for the quick follow-up with my order. Was afraid I would have to wait a couple of days for the email delivery. Your excellent customer service and prompt delivery is very much appreciated. Have already spent a few hours playing with (guitar) the styles and demo songs you provided. Very high quality stuff. They are just what I needed to help get me 'out of the box' and on to the next level of playing. Thanks again and best regards," ~ Fred Fahrner, Soquel, California

"Thank you very much for your fast deliverance. I just installed your styles and they work very nice. I just have to tell you that I couldn't imagine that Band-in-a-Box could sound like that. It's a great pleasure to work with these sounds." ~ Alfred Niederhofer, Regensburg, Germany

"I just installed your Christmas Fake Book songs and style disk #3 on my Mac. Actually, that's not quite true - I installed them about 10:30 or 11, and have been playing along with them for the past 4 hours. Before I head off to catch a few hours sleep, I just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed the songs and what a great job you did with the styles. I know you've probably heard it before, but thanks for the great job!" ~ Rob Fish, Powell, Ohio

"I just wanted to respond and say how much I appreciate the personal interest you've taken in me as a customer. I'm so impresed that I made sure to write this right away. ... Nowadays it is very rare to find business people who take genuine interest in their clients and customers. To put yourself in your clients shoes is a very admirable quality. ...

I am compelled to write and let you know how much I am enjoying using your BB add on products. The care and musicality of their development has allowed me to take my compositions to new levels. Please continue developing new products!! The world (and hopefully your wallet) will thank you. Sincerely, Peter B. Bergman Production Manager Catsong Studio

Just a note to say thank you very much. I received the User Style disks this morning, installed them into BB and WOW! What an improvement on PG Music's styles, especially connected to the Roland JV 1080 sound module. I'm really itching to work with it, but it will have to wait 'till tomorrow. And from next week I'm on leave, so you'll know where to find me.
   Thank's once again for your prompt service. Give me time to work through this lot and then I'll place an order for the other disks. - eddie.goldberg.recording.studio@...

My favorite Birthday present this year? A Bob Norton styles disk for my Band-In-The-Box program. Your styles disks bring the sounds generated by Band-In-The-Box to a new level. Canned music without the can. As a composer and a musician, I find that I am pleased with the sounds that come out. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to put your musical expertise into a form that can be utilized by others . . . and especially me. Thanks! - John Carlile - isadora@...
