Oh MAN! Now I feel like an idiot!

I figured it was an anagram, but I stopped looking for one when I couldn't come up with something. And once I knew your real name it didn't occur to me to re-evaluate the letters as an anagram in light of that info. Very clever!

Interestingly, I just got back from reading the 7 stages of Alzheimers at ALZ.ORG. I meet all the symptoms for stage 3 and some of 4. I should probably be scared, but I think one of the advantages of being stupid is that you don't always know when it's appropriate to be scared. So I'm just gonna be happy and test that old saying about ignorance and bliss

Digging your tune, nice composition, good production.

Horns... very impressive. If you don't mind me asking...

How do you do the horns?

Notation software?

What did you use as your source of sounds?

Pat - just remember this. The time to start worrying is not when you frequently can't remember where your glasses are. Or, if you don't wear glasses, perhaps you find that you occasionally sleep in your clothes.

The time to start worrying is when you forget that you wear glasses ... or clothes.

Until then, stay cool. Incidentally, what's your advice on a new stage name: Neal Drack? I don't know ... it suggests Dracula, who I always thought was a pretty cool dude.

Thanks RHarv. I think this is first time I've heard from you in the User forum. There are a few guys who are heavyweight contributors. I've been a member only since the beginning of the year and have already found out about you, Mac and Matt Finley. But I never see them post any performances. I've heard you guys are all powerhouse musicians, so ... ?

In my case, don't believe everything you hear smirk

I have plenty of songs posted on the forum, dating back many years.
Go here -
http://www.pgmusic.com/user-showcase/?genre=jazz
CTRL+F and search for rharv on the Rock, Jazz or Realtracks tabs.

I ain't saying they are my best work, but it ain't hard to find. Neither is the work of others you mention.

Mac & Matt have earned my respect, FWIW. I am not in Mac or Matt's class as far as performance. Doesn't matter which weapon; piano, trumpet, guitar .. I'd be gettin' schooled.

If you ever write about a tattoo that got infected:
Decal Rank

If you write a song about the undercover police who infiltrate brothels to catch pushers
Laced Nark

Who would write a tongue in cheek techno song?
Dance Lark

a song about a tall welder?
Arced Lank

a song about somebody who cheats at poker:
Card Ankle

a song about a kid with venereal disease:
Canker Lad

a song about a country where nothing ever gets oiled:
Creak Land

a song about the black Knight
Lance Dark

a song about a dishonest used car salesman
Crank Deal

song about the first hunter-gatherers:
Clan Raked

a song about words that will get you beat up if you say them in a biker bar

#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.

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 http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
