Thanks for sharing this! Indeed, it is very funny - but for me at least, it was cool to see what the software looked like way back when.

One of the most engrossing videos I've seen. I've never heard of a Cyprus computer. I loved the part about 5 1/4" disk drives versus 3 1/2" disk drives and how a good salesman can turn any negative into a positive.

True story, me and four workmates bid and won a pallet of Home Shopping Network (HSN) returned computers. The salvage yard would only sell complete pallets. The computer I selected was a (Korean firm) Goldstar 286 AT clone with a 5 1/4" drive, 3 1/2" drive and a 10 Megabyte MFM hard drive. The accessories included keyboard, mouse and CGA color monitor. I added a kit that included a Creative SoundBlaster 16, gameport to midi cable adaptor and Sequencer Plus Junior by Voyetra Technologies. I ran audio cables from the Creative line out to my stereo system. Then I bought Band-in-a-Box. I input midi with a small Casio keyboard and Casio DG-20 midi guitar controller. Quite the system for the time. The only issue was I was on the road for 40 to 50 weeks a year so wasn't able to play with it much. I spent as much time relearning as I did playing.

“Now we messed it all up - they’s all kinds of wrong chords in there”.

In 1977, I used to strap my TRS-80 into the passenger seat and drive to TV stations to do shows like that. I hope no film survived.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
