Jump to new posts New song post of a song I wrote in 2011 by trapper456 @ 44 minutes 17 seconds ago

This is song about people that fell in love and hurt each other in many unintentional ways. They started out as the best of friends, and ended up not being able to work things out in their life, or life that they thought that they should have been able to work things out but never could find true happiness with each other. I was kind of new at writing songs at this point. I created the music with a program called "Band in a Box" , So please be kind in the comment's. Suggestions welcome

David, what a pretty sound!! To me a very late 70’s sounding pop tune! This to me sounds like something the group America would have done! It has a really pretty chorus in it! I could just hear Gerry Beckley singing this! Very nice work! Thanks, Torrey

Okay, this one is my new favorite of yours. That is, until you come out with your next one, probably. Another great job. The lyrics lay it all out, some great lines in this one. And your vocals drive them home, as always. Always impressed. Steve

Joanne, Some really nice songs here. I particularly like I Would Have. I think I prefer the piano version. More intimate, and fits the lyrics better to me. I always look forward to hearing your songs. Great job of "cranking them out"! Steve

This is a beautiful song, David! Really like your arrangement. All the orchestration works really well together. Very well thought out. I agree, it ends a little abruptly. Your voice sounds good, really fits this genre. This one is good enough to make the extra effort to redo your lead vocals without so much pitch correction (intended as a compliment). Great job on the harmonies. Very much enjoyed this. Would like to hear more like it! Steve

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.
