In my long friendship with the man, I've never known him to disappear without cause. He's pretty thick-skinned out of necessity but is it possible that someone has offended him? Woe to that one!

Hey Don, now you've upset Matt Finley

Keith, Matt has a great sense of humo(u)r and knows that my tongue was firmly planted in cheek.

I think some sense of humour is a prerequisite for a pro trumpet player. After all, we have perhaps the greatest potential to do musical damage. All you can do after an obnoxious splat, chip, clinker or clam is chuckle and carry on. And that's what the audience will remember most anyway, especially if you get it right when it comes around again. Since my concerts are always done with no rehearsal (intentionally), I'm usually good for one train wreck per night!

Matt, one thing I've always envied in horn players was/is a spit valve. Could never find one, although seriously needed, on my Strat. I suggested it to Fender factory so keep an eye pealed for the new Stratocaster "Gaynor Model" it also has a gimbled beverage holder.

Matt, true you trumpet players can make some terrible noises, but we sax players can join in with a few squeaks, honks, and warbles. After all, we can't let you have ALL the fun wink

Drink holder sounds good. Martin Mull had a Telecaster with a 40-channel CB radio built in. (He once guided a trucker into the club with it.) I'm pretty sure the Custom Shop will create anything you're willing to pay for. cool

Mac's been AWOL over a month now.

I'm concerned.

Would someone who knows him please give him a call and find out if he's OK. If not find out if there is anything we can do to help.

Thanks.

Notes, I believe Bob Flatpicker has a good phone number for Mac.

@Bob, please call The Macster then assure us, his countless friends that he is okay. This is totally unlike him.

Apparently, Mac still hasn't checked in.

Does anyone living in his general vicinity have time or love enough to attempt an eyeball-to-eyeball visit over a cup of coffee with him?

Under these circumstances, PG Music may give Mac's address and phone number to a limited number of Mac's closest friends. He certainly don't need 100+ phone calls.

Hi Everyone. Just talked at length with Mac. All is well and good. Mac is deep in the woodshed, building an amp and designing a speaker box. He just wanted to take a break from BIAB and concentrate on his projects. He appreciates all your concerns for him. He will be back at some point. Later, Ray

You know, Mac has 30 some thousand posts. He is a pillar around here. I can understand why he needs the break, or at least wants one.

Don, I'm glad you're still checking up on us, and making sure we're okay.

Gary

I believe he's fine, if that counts for anything.
It doesn't surprise me that he is working on such things. Creativity doesn't sit still for long.

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Joanne summarizes the steps she took to produce her cover of "Old Lang Syne" - her final result was posted to the User Showcase Forum: Listen to Auld Lang Syne

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
