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.

Checked the woodshed; no Mac ..

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.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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.
