After a "series of unfortunate events" this month (a kitchen fire and burglary among the 'highlights'), I was facing a rather lacklustre prospects on the xmas presents front this year smirk

- Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!! laugh

This nifty device "assisted" me in whipping out enough material for a brand new cd for everyone, in less than two days - Problem solved! cool

Merry Christmas Eddie!

A CD worth of audio material in two days. Hopefully you'll post some of the songs for us to listen to.

I hope 2018 will bring you less drama and excitement.

Now, enjoy Jolabokaflod.

Ehrm, well... ok, reading back what I wrote I can see how you would come to that conclusion, but in truth it wasn't quite that impressive. What I meant to convey was that BBx helped me get "enough" material, as in added to pre-existing work. Sorry to burst that bubble for ya smirk

I shall nonetheless be submitting the new songs on here in near future, of course. Stay tuned - and happy holidays to you all cool

May your 2018 be a little less stressful and trouble free than 2017.

To reiterate on Jim's comment, I would also like to share the sentiment: "I hope 2018 will bring you less drama and excitement."

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box.

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!
