I'm not sure where the appropriate place is to post this ... or even if there is one. Most of you who are active on the User Showcase forum are aware of Di's quickly failing health. She hardly ever sings anymore because she is too weak.

Here are a couple of videos of Di and me having a great time with a little online karaoke. This was before she became so ill. She's now a faint shadow of what you see here. But, these were some great times for us. We did this a couple of nights a week ... not always on cam, but at least singing and having fun.

I hope you don't mind me posting this bit of recent nostalgia ... it's such a sweet reminder of when Di was relatively healthy. Now, she can barely walk from the bedroom to the kitchen. Sometimes it makes me just cry ... but these videos always cheer me up. Thanks for indulging me.

And here's one with Di doing some marvelous vocals - to have a voice like that!

Don'tcha think she looks pretty danged good for 65 years old at the time??!! I was only 64 ... what a cougar she is! And I know this isn't original music created on BIAB, but they're special to me. I'll pull this down if anyone objects.

Yes, good looking indeed and also a great voice. Sense of humor too: "finally came out of the liquor closet huh?" smile
I enjoyed watching. All the best to you two!

Dear Alan, Di has a beautiful voice. I'm very sad to hear her health has been declining. It must be very hard for you to watch. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Samuel,

Thanks a bunch! We hope to do a few more. All total, we have about 125 videos and about a third of them are us being silly. She's a terrific lady with more health issues than al;most any 10 people you can find, combined. Appreciate the nice words!

Alan

lambada,

Thanks so much! I'm biased but I believe she has a wonderful voice. And you are correct - it's very difficult to watch her health decline so quickly and so severely. We aqppreciatre the kind words and prayers very much. Best to you,

ALan

Thank you very much for your kindness. We appreciate that so much. Although I'm a biased husband, I agree she has the voice of an angel. I think there's a vacant seat waiting for her in the Eternal CHoir. God Bless.

I'm very sad to hear that Di's health is declining. You two are so supportive of users here and hey you both have a great sense of humour too. Di's singing is effortless and superb. You both have easy voices to listen to.

So sad to hear that Di is continuing to do poorly.

But watching the videos put a huge grin on my face. Thanks for posting them!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

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.
