I just saw the story on CNN. I was not a fan of his music as such, but I thought a great deal of him as an artist. He was one of the most imaginative and thoughtful figures in rock music, and I will miss him.

I never took any of his albums to the cash register, but I admired his tenacity

Space Odyssey did deliver some groundbreaking material. R.I.P Mr Bowie.

Woke up this morning and heard the news.

I was working for RCA in 1972 when he released the Ziggy Stardust album. It started to ship so fast that we couldn't get them from the pressing plant fast enough. We knew then that it was going to be huge, but what we didn't know was that it was just the start of an amazing career which was to span more than four decades.

I loved most of what he did and admired him greatly. A unique talent who will be sadly missed.

I read that this morning in the Washington Post.

He was a talented performer/writer. I didn't like everything he did, liked some a lot, didn't others, but respected it all.

RIP David.

I've seen a few artists who had this insight, and it can be very interesting.
Like I said, I has a sad .. he was special.

I loved David Bowie. His music was an integral part of my youth. I saw him when he played in Hong Kong. Without doubt one of the best shows I've ever seen. Interestingly, Bob Dylan played here and it was awful (I'm also a big Dylan fan). I followed Bowie for many years but sort of lost the plot around Tin Drum. Looking forward to hearing and seeing his swansong. Very sad, but a great life.

The first LP I ever bought was The Man who Sold the World. I also loved Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Low, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Pinups, Station to Station and Young Americans, but the list goes on. The weirdest song must be the single The Laughing Gnome. I bought that as well....

One of my school mates ran away from school to see him perform as Aladdin Sane or Ziggy Stardust, not sure which.... I did my teenybopper thing with him during Glam Rock in the UK. A lot of those artists are now sadly dead. frown

Check out these early clips of Bowie:

He never ceases to amaze me, just found this beautiful song. I don't remember it.

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

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!

Support for ABC Notation Format in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

ABC notation is the simple text-based notation system used by musicians worldwide to store chords, melody, and lyrics of songs. Now with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows you can open and save songs in ABC notation format!
