Jump to new posts Tool bar disappears by Kajun Jeaux @ 06/15/18 11:12 PM

Lately, when I open PT11 I can see the 'From' 'Thru' 'Key' 'Time' 'Now' toolbar for just a second as the program is opening, but as soon as it loads, the toolbar disappears. I tried reloading PT11 via the DVD I was sent when it bought it (years ago), but the same thing occurs.... I'm sure it's something really simple, but haven't figure it out. Anyone got any ideas?

Hello, Robert and Janice What an unique song! Even if I think to make such a song, it is not easy to make it. I agree with Scott. Janice was a perfect choice to sing the song. Her delivery to the song to the awesome level. Enjoyed my listen a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

Hello, David What a historical recording! I agree with floyd. That's a mighty fine 19-year-old write. By the way, I had also used Teac's 4 track multi-channel tape recorder when I was young. The model number was A-3340S. I had recorded dozens of songs with it. Enjoyed my listen a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

Nice picking Eric. From the title I was all ready to hear maybe some kind of western with a lot of reverb like in the old cowboy movies. Different than what I expected but enjoyed nonetheless. I especially liked the middle parts some really nice licks in there.

Great job on emulating the boss David. That's darn good for a 19 yr old. At over 6 mins getting into live rock anthem territory but hey I can dig it. And the moral of this story is you're still rocking after all these years. Rock on! Josie

What a gorgeous song. The mix is excellent and I love the arrangement and the vocal. Great choice on those drums and the slide guitar is icing along with that cool echo on the ending. touching. Makes me want to hear it again. Well done. Josie

Deryk, Are you publicly declaring that you think Highway to Hell and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap aren't the greatest songs ever written??? How can we ever...trust...anything anyone says ever again? First it was the G7 summit, now this. Oh man. I am so bummed. We are surely on that highway now.

Hi Trygve, This is already be possible with RealBand, using the Batch Convert command in the Render menu. RealBand is really the program for working with MIDI files, not Band-in-a-Box. Thanks Kent PG Music

Hi guys, I still haven't been able to replicate this issue, whether there's a held chord at the end of a song or not. Is everybody with this problem using holds at the end of your songs? Does it happen if you drag Drums directly to the desktop, or do you need to export using the Drop station? If anyone who has this problem can send an example song file and a description of how they're exporting their tracks to support@pgmusic.com, that would be great. I'd like to track down the cause of thi
