This YouTube video begins with a 30 second intro to one of our new songs, "Circling the Drain" which is available for auditioning in the User Showcase. That posting also contains song info about "Circling the Drain."

The musical intro of this video was created with BIAB and is titled "Topdown":

"Topdown" is an original song featuring Allman Brothers style twin guitars. It currently has no lyrics. The first 30+ seconds of the song are currently used along with original video footage as an intro to other original songs for upload to YouTube. Since all the music in the videos were made with BIAB I gave the proper credit to PG Music in the intro. Hopefully, there will be a full version of "Topdown" in the near future with lyrics. In the meantime, enjoy! ~Rob

Have you got the link for your initial "Showcase" post of this tune? I can't seem to find it, and the "Tag" feature for submitting videos doesn't seem to work on my old system smirk

Try the Search Forums field on the upper right. Putting in the song title worked for me. -Rob

That was going to be my next step, just thought I'd ask the person who referenced it first wink

Edit: I've found it, btw, so it's all good cool

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.

Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
