Oh, oh, I sort of forgot all about the game.

I guess I saw too many games back in the late sixties when they were more like the Stupor Bowl.

Don't even know who won.

Stupid bowl is a better word for it. I'd rather watch golf. At least, if someone gets killed by a stray shot, it's nobody's fault. Sheeeeesh! If the Saint's ain't playing what's my interest? And I seldom ever watch them. Only if my TV is stuck on that channel and I can't shut the darned thing off.

Bruce Da Moose? I've never cared for his style. Now Huey Lewis ... that's a horse of a nudda cullah. And he's kind of strange. Sounds like his voice is deep but it isn't. And it always sounds like he's singing with a big grin on his face. He's not another one of the Jerry Lewis clan is he? Or Cheri Lewis?

Never liked Bruce, he has a few decent songs, but he is boring to me.

I've never been the biggest fan... But I do love his album "Nebraska". In fact, think I'll put it on right now If anyone calls in for tech support, they're going to hear the Boss in the background ha ha
Do you love the Floyd as much as I do? If so, click away the moments that make up the dull day:

On the other hand, my brother and I are always remarking on what a great gig ole Clarence must have...

He don't play solos, he plays hooks.

The less you play, the more money you make.

Speaking of Clarence -- What the hell was he wearin' the other night?

Looked like somethin' from the "Ah'm Gonna Get You Suckah" movie.

Not a fan of Bruce either. Dude makes some interesting facial expressions when he sings though.

Doesn't seem to be many here who like him.

I bet he's crying all the way to the bank.

He's the Boss. About half his songs bore me, but the other half are great.
Like the man said, "ain't that a kick in the head!"

I wouldn't knock him, his performances are good, his songwriting has the proof of itself over time, that sort of thing. I'm more jazz oriented anyway. So are a lot of his band members, apparently. That's a good thing in certain ways.

He seemed really out of breath, like maybe his monitor wasn't working and he was singing louder to try and hear himself. And Disneyland is in CA, In FL it's DisneyWORLD.

Part of that had to do with how heavily someone was compressing the lead vocal, too. But remember, it was a halftime show at a football game in a football stadium.

I think they were using In-Ear wireless monitoring systems. Those can be set up such that each user can have a separate mix if they spent the money and I think those cats got the money...

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
