It was very nice seeing you guys on the video. It looked like you two were having a lot of fun together.

John, excellent singing and bass playing.

Danny and I did get together one night in Biloxi Mississippi. As part of our Florida vacation my wife and I were visiting her sister in Florida’s panhandle. I had emailed Danny and told him when I was going to be there and he suggested we meet in Biloxi, which was half way from where I was and where he lives. All four of us, me, Danny and our wives had a great time together.

Big Ditto what Mario said!

Although I really enjoyed the little video of John and Pat on the front porch, and keep in mind we don't have any videos to prove it, I still can't help but think Mario and I are prettier. Not by much mind you, but prettier none the less.

What do you think Mario?

When this thread started, I was still working and the time involved would have been prohibitive. However, now that I am .... wait for it .... RETIRED I would (will) be able to make a BIAB gathering.

Will it be like the old days of Apple where the 2 groups inside Apple were actually hated rivals? The Macintosh guys hated the Apple guys to the point where there were fistfights inside the Apple campus.

I can see it now. The BIAB guys rumbling with the RB guys. The Montagues and the Capulets, The Jets and the Sharks....

Although if this goes down in Atlanta or North Carolina, we'd have to bring some Yankee and Rebel into it, no? Maybe all the guys from above the Mason Dixon line wear blue and the guys below wear gray?

As long as I can find a dog friendly place to stay, I am in. Scuff goes everywhere with me. Renting a cabin sounds awesome but I don't know how that would fly with my overly friendly dog there wanting to jump in everybody's lap to lick their face. I had a FedEx delivery last week. By the time I got done signing for the box, she was sitting on the seat of the truck wanting to go for a ride. THAT friendly. Very confused by my being home every day, since I am now .... wait for it .... RETIRED!

John, you have one helluva one-man band.

He really does! It blows my mind that with his talent and well-crafted backing tracks and his amazing gear setup he is not working daily... but, that's probably a function of where he lives more than its a function of what he can do. But *I* am very impressed with John's entire musical capability. He's got it together.

you'll get no argument from ME on that one! (John will have to speak for himself)

OK, next year I will try to rent a cabin in the mountains of NC and everybody will be invited (depending on finances at that time... things tend to change unexpectedly at this age.)

It would probably be less expensive before the leaves start turning, but maybe less spectacular too. I noticed on the drive to John's that there are LOTS of white water excursions in that area. Also lots of fishing. B ut I'd rather just get a place that's far enough away from everybody that we can set up the PA and have a long jam session.

We can have some group input about what time most people could make it.

And if this one doesn't meet every need, then there's always the option of lotsa small meetings spread out regionally... (see Eddies thread)

A few final thoughts before this thread falls through the cracks for another year...

1) quite a few forum members have expressed an interest in regional get-togethers

2) those who aren't retired yet need to plan vacations well in advance because most employers want a rough draft of planned vacation time by the end of January.

3) The upshot is that anybody who is serious about hosting something should announce a tentative date ASAP. Details can be worked out later, but that would give people time to plan, and it would give the host advance notice of attendance.

speaking of forum member get togethers, I finally met Jim Fogle!

We both live in Winston Salem, but could never find a common time slot until today

Apparently neither of us looks like our avatars, because we stood across from each other for a while without realizing it was the person we were supposed to meet.

Jim is a very nice fellow, and we had about an hour of conversation in the lobby of a local restaurant before we both had to rush off to other commitments. Next time maybe we'll have time to actually EAT at the restaurant as we talk.

I'm sure we'll meet again. Still waiting for a regional get-together.

Danny, dogs are excellent barometers of people. If your dog still wags it's tail and licks your hand or allows you to pet it, then you are A-Numero Uno in my tome!

I'd love to be a dancing chicken but Don already has that avatar taken.

I taked so much I didn't realize Pat could talk for half an hour. Pat, next time it's all about you.

I'm sure we'll meet again. Still waiting for a regional get-together.


I had a great time and am looking forward to the next meeting. A regional meet would be special too!

Hey Guys and Guyettes,

I have come to the conclusion that the thought of forum get together (to most members anyway) is sort of like the old saying, "everybody want's to go to heaven but they don't want to die," or something like that.

Merry Christmas All!

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Forum thread: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=467504

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.

Read even more great feedback here.
