This is a really great listen. Loved the lyrics and the message. The production is also great, you could definitely hear this song on the radio. I especially liked the slight change of pace in the outro...very cool.

I find it hard to come up with the words to adequately express my gratitude to Dr. Gannon and the staff of PG Music for their generosity. This past year was a tough one for me, so finding out about this award really made my day! I am humbled by everyone's kindness here. This forum is one of the friendliest groups of people in the world. I'm sure most of you would agree that this group is like an extended family to one another.

Dang I'm loving EZ Drummer. This whole song came together in a matter of about 2 hours. Think of the Smiths with some funk bass. https://soundcloud.com/rockstar_not/heading-back

https://soundcloud.com/lawrence-olivier/charon In the summer of 1997 I went on a four-week retreat to north Louisiana. I was five hours from home, so I brought my Korg X-3 along. I composed this song while there, but as sometimes happens I lost the original tracks to a computer crash. I found a stereo mp3, but the production was rough. And although I did not use any BIAB on this song, I did use some of the production techniques that I have learned while working with BIAB. The title was cho

Harddrive crashes are so scary! I do a lot of digital paintings, and when I lost my harddrive and my external back up at the same time I just about cried from frustrations. Years of work gone. Seems you know the feeling! Glad it didn't stop you from creating. This song is really lovely, and glad that you re-made it to share with us here. Thanks for sharing this awesome tune. I can totally hear it playing in the car on a long drive, the whole family listening and smiling and singing along. Kee

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
